Main pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 3 + 2. Work due to the scheme 1. Start every row due to the scheme 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-3rd rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-3rd rows. Make double crochet only around chain st of the previous row, starting from the 2nd row.
Lace border: 1 pattern repeat = 12 set-up chain sts. The quantity of sts is multiple 12 +4. Make corners due to the scheme 2. Start every circle row due to the scheme, make chain st instead of the 1st st and finish with 1 slip st. Turn to the beginning of the next circle row with the help of slip st, pattern repeat, make corners and turn of circle row due to the scheme.
Stitches control: 14 sts x 7 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

At first, continue making back on the central 62 (68) 74 sts due to the pattern. In 18,5 cm = 13 rows (18,5 cm = 13 rows) 21,5 cm = 15 rows from the beginning of arm-holes, finish your work. There is 1 st left for arm-holes. Continue work on the last 32 (35) 38 sts due to the pattern for the left front. Finish your work at the height of back. Make right front on the first 32 (35) 38 sts in the same way, as left front.
