Knit Peachy Pullover
550 (600) 650g of peachy yarn (67% cotton, 33% viscose; 158m/50g);
Knitting needles 3;
Circular knitting needles 3 100 cm long;
Circular knitting needles 2,5 60 cm long.
Size: S (M) L.
1 x 1 rib.
Relief pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 9 + 2 selvage sts. Work due to the scheme, on which only RS rows are stated, make WS rows and yarn overs as purls. Repeat the pattern between selvage sts. Repeat 1st-16th rows.
Yoke pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 9. Work in the same way, as relief pattern, but in circle rows. Only odd rows are stated on the scheme. Make even rows due to the pattern, yarn overs as knit sts. Repeat the pattern. Repeat 1st-16th rows.
Double rib: the quantity of sts is even.
1st rnd: * 1 knit st, slip 1 purl, draw the yarn in front of st and tighten*; repeat from * to *;
2nd rnd: * slip 1 purl, draw the yarn in front of st and tighten, 1 purl*; repeat from * to *.
Repeat 1st-2nd rnds.
Stitches control: 27 sts x 38 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 136 (144) 152 sts in criss-cross method with knitting needles 3 and make 4 cm of 1 x 1 rib for lower placket, increase 1 (2) 3 sts in the last WS row = 137 (146) 155 sts. After that, continue work with relief pattern. For short raglan chamfers, bind off 1 x 3 sts from both sides in 34 cm = 128 rows from lower placket, then, bind off 7 x 1 st in every 2nd row. In 38 cm = 144 rows from lower placket, leave the rest 117 (126) 135 sts.
Make in the same way, as back.
Cast on 56 (62) 68 sts in criss-cross method with knitting needles 3 for each sleeve and make 4 cm of 1 x 1 rib for lower placket, increase 27 (30) 33 sts in the last WS row = 83 (92) 101 sts. Then, continue work with relief pattern, for size M, start with the 9th row due to the scheme. In 42 cm = 160 rows (40 cm = 152 rows) 38 cm = 144 rows from lower placket, make short raglan chamfers in the same way, as for back. In 46 cm = 176 rows (44 cm = 168 rows) 42 cm = 160 rows from lower placket, leave the rest 63 (72) 81 sts = 7 (8) 9 pattern repeats.
Transfer the previously left sts of back, 1st sleeve, front and 2nd sleeve to the long circular knitting needles = 360 (396) 432 sts = 40 (44) 48 pattern repeats. After that, continue work with yoke pattern, start with the 1st circle row due to the scheme. In 12 cm = 46 circle rows (14 cm = 54 circle rows) 16 cm = 62 circle rows from the beginning of yoke (in the next 15th (7th) 15th circle row due to the scheme) make decreases due to the scheme in every pattern repeat, make decreases due to the scheme, but don’t make yarn overs = 320 (3520 384 sts. Make all sts due to the pattern in the next circle row, decrease 0 (12) 24 sts = 320 (340) 360 sts. For neck-hole placket, continue work with double rib with circular knitting needles 2,5 in 12,5 cm = 48 circle rows (14,5 cm = 56 circle rows) 16,5 cm = 64 circle rows from the beginning of work. In 3 cm, bind off sts, make knit2tog before you bind off sts = 160 (170) 180 sts.
