Net pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 4 + 1. Work due to the scheme 1. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-4th rows x once, then, repeat 3rd-4th rows.
Square: make 14 chain sts and circle them in the ring with 1 slip st. Work due to the scheme with 2 circle rows. Start every circle row with initial chain sts increase due to the scheme and finish with 1 slip st in the last chain st increase of circle row. If needed turn to the beginning of circle row with the help of slip st. Make 1st-4th rows x once.
Stitches control: net pattern: 17 sts x 8 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Square: 14 x 14 cm.

Make 81 (97) chain sts + 4 chain sts increase and work with net pattern = 17 (21) pattern repeats + initial and final sts. In 14 cm from the set-up row, insert square on the central 14 cm. For this, make 1 slip st instead of the central chain sts of arch in the places, marked with arrows. Then, fasten both sides separately, make 1 slip st instead of selvage st from inwards. In 14 cm = 11 rows from division, continue work on all details with net pattern as one-piece cloth. In 44 cm from the set-up row, bind off 7 cm from both sides for arm-holes and finish your work in 64 (66) cm from the set-up row.
Make 41 (49) chain sts + 4 chain sts increase and work with net pattern = 7 (9) patterns + initial and final sts. In 14 cm from the set-up row, insert square on the central 14 cm, as for back. In 37,5 (39,5) cm from the set-up row, skip ½ pattern repeat for neck-hole chamfer from the left side and then skip ½ pattern repeat x 5 times in the next row. At the same time, make decrease for arm-hole from the right side in the same way, as for back.
