Crochet Coper Pullover
300 (400)g of coper yarn (75% viscose, 25% polyester; 85m/25g);
Crochet hooks 3,5 and 4.
Size: S (L).
Main pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 13 + 1. Work due to the scheme. Start every row with 3 chain sts increase instead of the 1st double crochet and sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-8th rows x once, then, repeat 3rd-8th rows.
Note: after the 1st row the quantity of sts is multiple 14 + 1. Make double crochets only around chain sts of the previous row, starting from the 3rd row.
Fringe of picots: start every circle row with 1 chain st instead of the 1st single crochet and finish with 1 slip st in chain st increase.
1st circle row: single crochets;
2nd circle row: * 1 single crochet, 1 picot*; repeat from * to *.
Stitches control: 22 set-up sts or 23,5 sts x 9 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Make 105 (131) chain sts + 3 chain sts increase with crochet hook 3,5 and work with the main pattern = 113 (141) sts after the 1st row. Starting from the 3rd row, continue work with crochet hook 4.
