Knit Tender Blue Pullover
650 (700) 750g of tender blue yarn (67% wool, 30% alpaca, 3% polyamide; 60m/50g);
Knitting needles 10;
Circular knitting needles 10.
Size: S (M) L.
Structured Pattern (the quantity of sts is multiple 4 + 3 + 2 selvage sts). Work due to the scheme, on which both RS and WS rows are stated. Start with 1 selvage st, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat and 1 selvage st. Repeat 1st-8th rows.
Faux patent pattern, circle rows: the quantity of sts is multiple 4.
1st rnd: * 1 knit st, 3 purls*; repeat from * to *;
2nd rnd: * 2 knit sts, 1 purl, 1 knit st*; repeat from * to *. Repeat 1st-2nd rows.
Faux patent pattern in straight and reversed directions: the quantity of sts is multiple 4 + 3 + 2 selvage sts.
1st row (WS): 1 selvage st, * 3 knit sts, 1 purl*; repeat from * to *, 3 knit sts, 1 selvage st;
2nd row (RS): 1 selvage st, 1 knit st, * 1 purl, 3 knit sts*; repeat from * to *, 1 purl, 1 knit st, 1 selvage st.
Stitches control: 11 sts x 18 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 61 (65) 69 sts and make 1 WS row of purls. Continue work with structured pattern. In 31 cm = 56 rows (29 cm = 52 rows) 27 cm = 48 rows from the set-up row, bind off 1 x 2 sts from both sides for arm-holes, then, bind off 2 x 2 sts in every 2nd row = 49 (53) 57 sts. In 51 cm = 92 rows from the set-up row, leave all sts.
Make in the same way, as back.
Transfer the previously left 49 (53) 57 sts of front and back to the circular knitting needles and make 1 circle row of knit sts on all 98 (106) 114 sts, make the corresponding selvage sts from both sides as knit2tog and make sts as shoulder lines = 96 (104) 112 sts. Transfer the last st of this circle row to the beginning of needle and continue work with faux patent pattern, starting at shoulder line. At the same time, starting from the 1st circle row, decrease 12 (14) 16 x 4 sts in every circle row. In 7,5 cm = 13 circle rows (8,5 cm = 15 circle rows) 9,5 cm = 17 circle rows from the beginning of yoke, bind off the rest 48 sts, as knit sts.
Cast on 25 (29) 33 sts for each sleeve and work with faux pattern, start with 1 WS row. At the same time, increase 8 x 1 st in every 8th and 10th row by turn = 41 (45) 49 sts. In 44,5 cm = 80 rows from the set-up row, bind off all sts.
Sew sleeves. Make side and sleeve seams.
