Crochet Waffle Top
250 (300)g of green (# 15) Lana Grossa Aria yarn (100% cotton; 165m/50g);
Crochet hook 3,5.
Size: S (M).
Relief crochets: work due to the scheme A (B) with straight and reversed rows. Change the 1st double crochet of every row to 3 chain sts increase. These chain sts are considered as one st. Make the last double crochet of the row in the 3rd chain st increase. Start the row with sts before the 1st arrow, pattern repeat = 4 sts between arrows, finish with sts after the 2nd arrow. Make 1st-5th rows x once, then, repeat 4th and 5th (5th and 6th) rows. Decreases for arm-holes are stated in the 34th (35th) row from both sides. Change sts in further decreases due to the scheme to half double crochet, single crochet and slip st. Make 34th-44th rows x once (35th-47th rows x once), then, repeat 43rd and 44th rows (46th and 47th rows).
Stitches control: 22 sts x 10 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 97 (107) chain sts + 1 chain st increase. Work with relief double crochets pattern, make the 1st single crochet in the 2nd chain st from the crochet hook in the 1st row = 2 (3) double crochets. Decrease 1 double crochet from both sides in the 6th and 12th rows from the beginning of work = 93 (103) sts. In 12 cm = 13 rows from the beginning, make marks. Increase 1 double crochet from both sides in the 7th and 15th rows from marks, for this, make 2 double crochets in 1 st = 97 (107) sts. In 20 (21) cm = 20 (21) rows from marks, decrease 5 sts from both sides for arm-holes, then, bind off 1 x 3 sts, 3 x 2 sts and 4 (6) x 1 st in every row, make decreases as it’s stated for the 34th (35th) rows = 61 (67) sts. Afterthat, crochetstraight. At 10 (11) cm = 10 (11) rows height of arm-holes, leave the central 27 sts for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. Bind off 2 x 3 sts, 1 x 2 sts and 2 x 1 st in every following row from inwards in the same way, as for arm-holes. At 12 cm = 12 rows height of cuts, finish your work on the rest 7 (10) sts of shoulder from each side.
Make in the same way, as back, but with deeper neck-hole. For this, at 6 (7) cm = 6 (7) rows height, bind off the central 23 sts and finish both sides separately. Bind off 2 x 3 sts, 2 x 2 sts and 2 x 1 st in every row in the same way, as for arm-holes. Finish your work on the rest 7 (10) sts of shoulder from each side at the height of back.
Make all seams. Fasten arm-holes and neck-hole with 1 row of slip sts.
