Peachy Oversize Pullover
500g of peachy (106) Lana Grossa Duo Paillettes yarn (54% polyamide, 19% alpaca wool, 19% mohair, 8% polyester; 110m/50g);
Crochet hook 5;
Circular knitting needles 5 (40 and 60 cm long).
2 x 2 rib.
Relief pattern: due to the scheme. Make the 1st group of double crochets in the 6th chain st from the crochet hook. Start every row with 2 chain sts instead of the 1st half crochet and finish with 1 half crochet in the 2nd chain st increase. Start with sts before the 1st arrow, repeat the pattern between arrows, finish with sts after the 2nd arrow. Starting from the 2nd row, make single crochets and double crochets under chain sts of the previous row. Repeat 1st-3rd rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-3rd rows.
Stitches control: 2,5 pattern repeats x 7 rows = 9,5 x 10 cm.
Note: make pullover without knitting placket as one-piece cloth.
Start with the left sleeve. For this, make 82 chain sts + 2 chain sts increase with crochet hook 5 and work with relief pattern = 16 pattern repeats. In 40 cm = 28 rows from the set-up row, make 25 chain sts from the right side for back for 5 pattern repeats and make 25 chain sts from the left side for front for 5 pattern repeats. Then, work with relief pattern = 26 pattern repeats. In 22 cm = 16 rows from the beginning of back and front, leave the central 2 pattern repeats open for neck-hole and finish both sides separately = 12 pattern repeats from both sides. In 20 cm = 14 rows from the beginning of neck-hole, make 10 chain sts and work with relief pattern on all sts = 26 pattern repeats. In 22 cm = 16 rows from the end of neck-hole, leave 5 pattern repeats open from both sides for front and back and finish right sleeve in the 2nd row of the pattern in symmetry to the left sleeve, make 1 chain st between single crochets.
Cast on 84 sts along neck-hole with circular knitting needles 5 40 cm long and work with rib for collar. At 26 cm height of collar, bind off sts. Cast on 94 sts with circular knitting needles 5 60 cm ling and work with rib along the edges of arm-holes, start with 1 WS row and 1 purl after selvage st, finish with 1 purl before selvage st.
In 5 cm = 15 rows from the beginning of placket, bind off sts as they face. Cast on 42 sts along the lower edges of sleeves with circular knitting needles 5 60 cm long. For placket, work with straight and reversed rows of rib, start with 1 WS row and 1 purl after selvage st, finish with 1 purl before selvage st. At 4 cm = 13 rows height, bind off sts. Make sleeve and side seams.
