Stripped Shawl with Sleeves
5 skeins of silver-lilac-beige shades (406) of Katia Azteca fine lux yarn (52% wool, 45% acryl, 3% polyester; 270m/100g);
Crochet hook 3,5.
Stitches control: 13 sts x 6,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Note: make shape of shawl by means of decreases: decrease 2 sts from both sides and 4 sts from the center, except the 1st row, decrease only the central 2 sts in this row.
Make 308 chain sts and work with the main pattern due to the scheme 1. After making the 20th row, the length of work is 30 cm = 162 sts. For arm-holes, make 30 sts, skip the following 26 sts with the help of slip st (= arm-hole), make 50 sts, skip the next 26 sts with the help of slip st (= arm-hole), make 30 sts. Make 26 chain sts in the next row instead of skipped sts of the previous row. Make the rest sts due to the pattern.
When the length of work is 24 cm = 15 rows from the beginning of arm-hole (totally, 42 sts in the row), cut the yarn and bind off sts.
Work along the edges of arm-holes with circle rows. Make 52 double crochets along the first arm-hole and continue work with the main pattern due to the scheme 2. When the length of sleeve is 46 cm, cut the yarn and bind off sts. Make the second sleeve in the same way.
