Crochet Golden Pullover
400g of golden-brown yarn (48% sheep wool, 30% alpaca wool, 22% polyamide; 240m/50g);
Crochet hook 5.
Main pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 4 + 1. Work due to the scheme. 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.
Fancy pattern with circle rows: start every circle row with 2 chain sts increase and finish with 1 slip st in the last chain st increase.
1st rnd: double crochets;
2nd rnd: * 1 fpdc, 1 bpdc*; repeat from * to *
Repeat 1st-2nd rows x once, then, repeat 2nd row.
Stitches control: main pattern: 18 sts x 8 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Fancy pattern: 19 sts x 12 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Back and Front
Make 129 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase for front, work with the main pattern. In 50 cm = 40 rows from the set-up row, divide your work in the middle for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. In 67,5 cm = 54 rows from the set-up row, shoulder line will be reached. From that place, work in reflection, make back neck-hole in the same way, as front neck-hole. In 135 cm = 108 rows from the set-up row, finish your work.
For each sleeve, make 52 chain sts + 2 chain sts increase and circle them in the ring with slip st. Then, work with fancy pattern in circle rows. In 27 cm = 32 circle rows from the set-up row, finish your work.
Make side seams, leave upper parts of 14 cm long open, sew up sleeves in arm-holes.
