Relief Knit Pullover
250 (300)g of grey-brown/black Lana Grossa Difuso yarn (75% cotton, 25% polyester; 205m/50g);
Knitting needles 4,5.
Size: S (M).
Chain edge: 1st st of every row as knit st. Slip the last st of every row as purl (yarn in front of needle).
Lace pattern: work due to the scheme. Start with selvage st before the 1st arrow, 12 sts of pattern repeat between arrows, finish with selvage st after the 2nd arrow. Repeat 1st-18th rows.
Stitches control: lace pattern across: 20,5 sts x 28,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Lace pattern straight for sleeves: 24 sts x 27 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Back and ½ Sleeve
Startwithrightsleeve. For this, cast on 50 sts and work with lace pattern with chain edge = 4 pattern repeats. In 20 cm = 54 rows from the set-up row, cast on 84 sts from left side for back = 134 sts and work with lace pattern straight = totally, 11 pattern repeats. In 44 (50) cm = 126 (144) rows = (7 (8) x 18 rows) width of back, bind off 84 sts = 50 sts along left side. Now, make left sleeve in symmetry to the right. In 20 cm = 56 rows from the beginning of sleeve (in the 2nd row of pattern), bind off sts loosely.
Front and ½ Sleeve
Make in the same way, as back with ½ sleeve, but start with left sleeve and finish with right sleeve in symmetry.
Make seams, leave 28 cm in the center open for neck-hole.
