Knit Fuschia Top with Beads
360g of Golf yarn (100% cotton; 125m/50g) in fuschia color;
Straight knitting needles 3,5.
Beads pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 22 + 1 + 2 selvage sts. Work due to the scheme, on which only RS rows are stated. Make WS rows as sts face or as it’s stated, yarn overs – as purls. Start with 1 selvage st and sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat.
Repeat 1st-40th rows.
Stitches control: 22,5 sts x 35 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 113 sts with criss-cross method and work with beads pattern. At the same time, bind off 3 x 1 st in every 20th row from both sides, starting from the set-up row, for side chamfers and 4 x 1 st in every 14th row = 99 sts. In 36 cm = 126 rows from the set-up row, bind off 1 x 2 sts from both sides for arm-holes, then, 6 x 1 st in every row and 3 x 1 st in every 2nd row = 77 sts. In 40 cm = 140 rows from the set-up row, bind off all sts.
Make in the same way, as back, but for straps, bind off the central 68 sts in 40 cm = 140 rows from the set-up row and continue work due to the pattern on outer 5 sts. In 34 cm from the beginning of straps, bind off all sts.
Make side seams and sew straps to back.
