Relief pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 4 + 2 selvage sts), work due to the scheme, in which only RS rows are stated. Make WS rows as purls. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-8th rows x 8 times = 64 rows, then, make 65th-72nd rows x once, decrease 1 st from both sides in every RS row, then, repeat 65th-72nd rows, continue making decrease due to the pattern.
Stitches control: relief pattern: 17 sts x 21,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 86 (94) 102 sts and make 2 cm with rib for lower placket. Then, continue work with relief pattern with yellow yarn. In 26 cm = 56 rows from lower placket, continue work with beige yarn. For raglan chamfers, in 30 cm = 64th row (WS) from lower placket, bind off 1 x 2 sts from both sides = 82 (90) 98 sts. Then, make raglan chamfers due to the scheme from the 65th row and bind off 22 (26) 30 x 1 st in every 2nd row from both sides. In 50 cm 108 rows (54 cm = 116 rows) 57,5 cm = 124 rows from the set-up row, leave the rest 38 sts for neck-hole.

Then, for raglan chamfers, continue work in the same way, as for back, make decreases for all sizes from the 65th row and decrease 22 (26) 30 x 1 st in every 2nd row from both sides. In 42,5 cm = 92 rows from lower placket, leave the rest 22 sts.
