Bundle: yarn over, insert crochet hook in the next st or space, draw yarn x 3 times (= 7 sts on the crochet hook), draw yarn through 6 sts on the crochet hook, yarn over, draw yarn through the last 2 sts.
Stitches control: 22 sts = 10 cm.
Make 6 rows to the side cut: make 119 (130) 141 (152) chain sts and work due to the scheme for 10 (11) 12 (13) pattern repeats. Putoffsts. Cuttheyarn.
Make 119 (130) 141 (152) sts and make 10 (11) 12 (13) pattern repeats, as described for back. Place both details WS facing and continue work with circle rows due to the scheme. Start with the 7th row and make 1 slip st in the 3rd chain st increase in the end of every circle row. Make 49 rows due to the scheme. When the length of work is 39 cm, start making arm-holes. For this, turn to work with straight and reversed rows, finish back and front separately.
Starting from the 53rd row, make increases for arm-holes due to the scheme = 11 (12) 13 (14) pattern repeats. Make increases due to the scheme in the 59th row = 12 (13) 14 (15) pattern repeats. Continue work without increases until you make 61 (62) 63 (64) cm.
At the same time with increases for arm-holes, start forming neck-hole. Leave central 4 (3) 4 (3) pattern repeats open, finish left and right sides separately. Make decreases along neck-hole, as it’s shown on the scheme. Continue work straight until the length of front is the same as the length of back.
Trim, Arm-Holes Fastening
Make shoulder seams. Make edges due to the scheme: * 1 single crochet, 3 chain sts, 1 bundle in single crochet, 1 chain st*; repeat from * to *, as it’s shown on the scheme.
