White Festive Jacket
500 (550)g of natural-white yarn (54% baby alpaca wool, 36% natural wool, 10% nylon; 155m/50g);
Crochet hook 7;
Knitting needles 6.
Size: S (M).
Main pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 3 + 1. Work due to the scheme 1. Start with sts before pattern repeats, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-9th rows x once, then, repeat 6th-9th rows.
Hexagon: make 5 chain sts and circle them in the ring with the help of 1 slip st. Work due to the scheme 2 with circle rows. Start every circle row with 3 chain sts increase instead of the 1st double crochet and finish with 1 slip st. If needed, turn to the new circle row with the help of slip st. Make 1st-4th circle rows x once.
2 x 2 rib (knitting needle).
Stitches control: main pattern: 13 sts x 8 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Hexagon: 15 cm from top to top, 14 cm from edge to edge.

Make 19 (22) chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and work with the main pattern = 6 (7) pattern repeats + 1 st. At the same time, for better shaping, skip 4 pattern repeats on the following 51 cm. In 61 cm = 49 rows from the set-up row, finish your work.
