Knit Short Pullover with Holes Pattern
350 (400) 450g of sandy yarn (90% cotton, 10% cashmere; 125m/50g);
Knitting needles 4;
Circular knitting needles 4.
Size: S (M) L.
Rib: the quantity of sts is even. Start and finish every row with 1 selvage st. RS rows: * 1 cross knit st, 1 purl*; WS rows: * 1 knit st, 1 cross purl*.
Relief pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 6 + 2 selvage sts. Work due to the scheme, on which only RS rows are stated, make sts in WS rows and yarn overs as purls. Start with 1 selvage st and sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat and 1 selvage st. Repeat 1st-12th rows.
Marked decrease: right side: 1 selvage st, 2 knit sts, broaching; left side: work due to the pattern to the last 5 sts, knit2tog, 2 knit sts, 1 selvage st.
Stitches control: 22 sts x 26,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 110 (116) 122 sts and make 10 cm of rib for placket. Continue work due to relief pattern. In 16 cm = 42 rows from placket (in the 7th row of the scheme), bind off 1 x 11 sts from both sides for raglan chamfers, then, make marked decreases of 21 (24) 27 x 1 st in every 2nd row. In 32,5 cm = 86 rows (34,5 cm = 92 rows) 37 cm = 98 rows from placket, bind off the rest 46 sts for neck-hole.
Make in the same way, as back, but start making raglan chamfer in 11,5 cm = 30 rows from placket. In 25 cm = 66 rows (27 cm = 72 rows) 29,5 cm = 78 rows from placket, bind off the central 18 sts for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 3 x 1 st in every 2nd row from inwards. In 28 cm = 74 rows (30 cm = 80 rows) 32,5 cm = 86 rows from placket, bind off the rest 6 sts from placket.
Cast on 56 (62) 68 sts for each sleeve and make 10 cm of rib for placket. Continue work with relief pattern. At the same time, increase 12 x 1 st in every 6th row from both sides of plackets for sleeve chamfers and work due to the pattern = 80 (86) 92 sts. Make raglan chamfer in 34 cm = 90 rows from placket in the same way, as for back. In 50,5 cm = 134 rows (52,5 cm = 140 rows) 55 cm = 146 rows from placket, bind off the rest 16 sts.
Make raglan seams. For placket, cast on 120 sts along neck-hole with circular knitting needles and work with rib in circle rows. Bind off all sts when the width of placket is 4,5 cm. Make side and sleeve seams.
