450g of dark-blue, jeans, silver color (# 106) of Lana Grossa Roma Degrade (100% cotton; 105m/50g);
Crochet hook 7;
Circular knitting needles 6 (80 cm long).
Stockinette stitch, circle rows: knit.
Cross treble crochets: the quantity of sts is multiple 9 + 4 + 1 chain st increase for the beginning of the 1st row. Work due to the scheme with straight and reversed rows. Make the 1st group of 3 treble crochets of the first row in the 10th chain st from the crochet hook. Then, make 1 chain st and group of 3 treble crochets before the first 3 treble crochets in the last skipped chain st. Make 1 chain st, 1 single crochet and 1 chain s tint he 4th chain st in the end, as it’s stated on the scheme. Make the next 6 cross treble crochets in the same way, as the first, but in the next 4th and 5th chain sts. Start row with sts before the 1st arrow, pattern repeat between arrows, finish with sts after the 2nd arrow. Group of black treble crochets is always made the first, then, make groups with grey yarn. Make groups in the 1st row in base chain sts, from the 2nd row – around chain st of the previous row. Make 1st-3rd rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-3rd rows.
Stitches control: stockinette stitch: 17,5 sts x 21 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Pattern of cross treble crochets: 2 pattern repeats x 12 rows = 13,5 x 20,5 cm.
At first, make upper part with pattern of cross treble crochets from down to up. For this, make 54 chain sts + 4 chain sts increase + 1 chain st, as stated, with crochet hook 7. After that, work with cross treble crochets pattern = 6 pattern repeat. In 19 cm = 11 rows from the beginning, increase ½ pattern repeat from both sides, for this, make 6 treble crochets instead of 3 around chain sts in the beginning and ened of the 12th row. Then, work with pattern = 7 pattern repeat. In 13 cm = 7 rows from increases, mark the beginning of arm-holes from both sides. At 20 cm = 12 rows height of arm-holes, finish your work.
Make in the same way, as back.
Make all seams, side seams to marks, shoulder seams – 12 cm long. Fasten the edges of front and back with 1 row of single crochets, making 80 single crochets for each part = 160 sts. Cast on 1 st from every single crochet and make basque with circle rows of stockinette stitch. At 9,5 cm = 20 rows height of basque, make 1 more circle row of purls. Bind off all sts loosely.
