Main pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 4 + 1 + 3 chain sts increase. Work due to the scheme 1. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-3rd rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-3rd rows.
Arches pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 10 + 1 + 3 chain sts increase. Work due to the scheme 2. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-8th rows x once, then, repeat 3rd-8th rows.
Stitches control: main pattern: 14 sts x 7 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Arches pattern: 12,5 sts x 8 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Make 69 (77) 85 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase for upper part and work with the main pattern. In 31,5 cm = 22 rows (34,5 cm = 24 rows) 37 cm = 26 rows from the set-up row, leave the central 19 (23) 27 sts foe neck-hole and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, decrease 1 double crochet from inwards in the next row. In 34,5 cm = 24 rows (37 cm = 26 rows) 40 cm = 28 rows from the set-up row, finish your work. For lower part, work with arches pattern upon the set-up row of upper part, increase 2 (4) 6 sts in the 1st row = 71 (81) 91 sts. In 48,5 cm = 39 rows (52,5 cm = 42 rows) 56 cm = 45 rows from upper part, finish your work.
Make upper part in the same way, as for back, but with deeper neck-hole. For this, in 25,5 cm = 18 rows (28,5 cm = 20 rows) 31,5 cm = 22 rows from the set-up row, leave the central 13 (17) 21 sts and decrease 4 x 1 double crochet in every row. Make lower part in the same way, as back lower part.
Make 37 (45) 53 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and work with the main pattern. For sleeve chamfers, increase 2 x 1 st in every 4th row from both sides and 10 x 1 st in every 2nd row = 61 (69) 77 sts, include the increased sts in the pattern. In 40 cm = 28 rows from the set-up row, finish your work.
Make shoulder seams; for placket, cast on 70 (78) 86 sts and make 1,5 cm of wrong-side pattern in circle rows, then, bind off sts as knit sts. Sew up the sleeves, make side and sleeve seams. Fasten sleeves with 1 row of single crochets and 1 row of “crab stitch”.
