700 (800)g of yellow sectional coloring Organico Print yarn (100% cotton; 90m/50g);
Knitting needles 4,5.
Size: S (L-XL).
Zigzags pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 12 + 3 + 2 selvage sts. Work due to the scheme, on which only RS rows are stated, make WS rows as sts face, yarn overs as purls. Start with 1 selvage st and sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat, 1 selvage st. Make 1st-20th rows x once, then, repeat 3rd-20th rows.
1 x 1 rib.
Stitches control: 19,5 sts x 24,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Rib: 5 sts + 1 selvage st = 2 cm.
Cast on 101 (125) sts and work with zigzags pattern. In 56 cm = 138 rows (50 cm = 122 rows) from the set-up row, bind off 12 sts from both sides for arm-holes = 77 (101) sts. In 74,5 cm = 182 rows from the set-up row, bind off the central 15 (23) sts for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 2 x 5 sts in every 2nd row from inwards. At the same time, in 75 cm = 184 rows from the set-up row, bind off 6 (8) sts from both sides for shoulder chamfers and 3 x 5 (7) sts in every 2nd row. Finish your work in 77,5 cm = 190 rows from the set-up row.
Cast on 58 (70) sts and work in the following way: 1 selvage st, 51 (63) sts of zigzags pattern and 5 sts of rib + 1 selvage st for placket. In 55,5 cm = 136 rows from the set-up row, decrease 1 st for neck-hole chamfer, for this, make 1 st before placket with the 1st st of placket as knit2tog. Repeat this decrease x 17 times in every 2nd and 4th rows by turn (21 times in every 2nd row). At the same time, make arm-hole and shoulder chamfer from the right side in the same way, as for back. In 77,5 cm = 190 rows from the set-up row, leave the rest 7 sts of placket.
Work in symmetry to the left front, for neck-hole chamfer decreases, make the last st of placket together with the next st as broaching.
Cast on 53 (65) sts and work with zigzags pattern. In 22 cm = 54 rows from the set-up row, increase 1 st from both sides for sleeve chamfers and 10 x 1 st in every 6th row (14 x 1 st in every 4th row and 2 x 1 st in every 2nd row) = 75 (99) sts, include the increased sts in the pattern. In 52 cm = 128 rows from the set-up row, bind off all sts.
Make shoulder seams. Transfer the previously left 7 sts of plackets and work with rib between selvage sts. In 10 (12) cm from shoulder, bind off all sts. Connect bound off edges of plackets with Kitchener’s stitch and sew placket to the back neck-hole. Sew up the sleeves, make side and sleeve seams.
