Crochet Green Tunic with Long Sleeves
450 (500)g of green (#43) Wakame Lana Grossa yarn (75% cotton, 25% viscose; 125m/50g);
Crochet hook 5.
Size: S (M).
Pattern of leaves A: the quantity of sts is multiple 12 + 1 + 1 chain st increase. Work due to the scheme A. Make the 1st single crochet in the 2nd chain st from the crochet hook. Start with sts before the 1st arrow, pattern repeat between arrows, finish with sts after the 2nd arrow. 3 pattern repeats are stated on the scheme. Make 1st-11th rows x once, then, repeat 6th-11th rows.
Pattern of leaves B: make in the same way, as pattern of leave A. Make 1st-29th rows x once.
Stitches control: 2 pattern repeats x 6 rows = 11 x 13,5 cm.
Back with Half Sleeves
Make 97 (121) chain sts + 1 chain st increase. Work with pattern of leaves B, start with the 1st row, as it’s stated on the scheme, make pattern repeat in the center x 3 (5) times = 8 (10) pattern repeats. In 40,5 cm = 18 rows from the beginning of work. For this, make 6 chain sts, as it’s stated on the scheme in the end of the 18th row, and work with slip sts along them in the beginning of the 19th row. Make 6 chain sts in the end of the 19th row and make the 20th row in the reversed direction = ½ pattern repeat. Start the 21st row with new yarn and make 90 chain sts for the first half of sleeve, make the 21st row and 90 chain sts + 1 chain st increase in the end of row for the 2nd half of sleeve. Finish pattern repeats due to the scheme in the 22nd row (work between double arrows a and b, c and d x 6 times). After that, there are 24 (26) pattern repeats in work. Crochet straight. In 18 cm from the beginning of sleeve = after the 29th row of the scheme, finish your work. Work along the set-up chain of row of arches, turn scheme B anticlockwise.
Front with Half Sleeves
Make in the same way, as back, but with round neck-hole. For this, leave the central 3 pattern repeats in the 27th row (not 1 pattern repeat, as it’s stated on the scheme) and after that finish them separately due to the scheme. Decrease 1 pattern repeat due to the scheme along edges of neck-hole. Finish your work after the 29th row. Make the set-up edge in the same way, as for back.
Make sleeve and shoulder seams. Fasten the edges of sleeves with b row, as it’s stated from the right side: the scheme shows 3 pattern repeats of half sleeve, make the 2nd half of sleeve in the same way = totally, 6 pattern repeats. Make side sleeve seams. Then, fasten the edges with 1 row of single crochets and 1 row of “crab stitch”.
