Crochet Blue Top
250 (300) 300g of blue Linarte yarn (40% viscose, 30% cotton, 20% linen, 10% polyamide; 125m/50g);
100 (100) 150g of the same yarn, but in white color;
100 (100) 150g of the same yarn, but in light-green color;
Crochet hook 4,5.
Size: S (M) L.
Main pattern: double crochets, insert crochet hook through back loop of sts of the previous row. Start every row with 3 chain sts increase instead of the 1st double crochet and finish with 1 double crochet in the 3rd chain st increase of the previous row.
Relief pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 4 + 1. Work due to the scheme. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make * 1st-8th rows x once, 3rd-8th rows x once*; repeat from * to *, paying attention to colors change.
Stitches control: main pattern: 17,5 sts x 8,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Relief pattern: 17,5 sts x 14,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Make 77 (85) 93 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase with blue yarn and work with relief pattern. In 15 cm = 22 rows from the set-up row, work with the main pattern with blue yarn. At the same time, skip 4 x 1 st in every 2nd row from both sides from patterns change = 69 (77) 85 sts. In 14 cm from patterns change, increase 1 st from both sides and then 3 x 1 st in every 4th row = 77 (85) 93 sts. In 28 cm = 24 rows from patterns change, work with relief pattern. In 9,5 (8,5) 7,5 cm from the last patterns change, skip 5 sts from both sides for arm-holes and bind off 1 x 3 sts and 2 x 1 st in every 2nd row = 57 (65) 73 sts. For neck-hole, bind off the central 27 sts in 22 cm from the last patterns change for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 3 x 2 sts in every 2nd row from inwards. Finish your work on the rest 9 (13) 17 sts of shoulder, finish your work in 28 cm from the last patterns change or in 71 cm from the set-up row.
Make in the same way, as back, but with deeper neck-hole. For this, in 11 cm from the last patterns change, bind off the central 21 sts and bind off 1 x 3 sts, 1 x 2 sts and 4 x 1 st in every 2nd row.
Make all the seams. Fasten the edges of neck-hole and arm-holes with 1 circle row of single crochets and slip sts with blue yarn.
