Mohair Knit Vest
300 (350) 350g of green-grey yarn (85% cotton, 15% polyamide; 150m/50g);
Knitting needle 6;
Crochet hook 4,5.
Size: S (M) L.
Main pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 6 + 3 + 2 selvage sts. Work due to the scheme, on which both RS and WS rows are stated. Start with 1 selvage st, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat and 1 selvage st.
Decorative decreases: from the left side: make sts due to the pattern to the last 4 sts, knit2tog, 1 knit st, 1 selvage st. From the right side: 1 selvage st, 1 knit st, broaching.
Stitches control: 20 sts x 21,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 95 (101) 107 sts and make the 1st row (WS) with knit sts (don’t take this row into account). Continue work with the main pattern. In 39 cm = 84 rows (38 cm = 82 rows) 37 cm = 80 rows from the set-up row from both sides, make 9 sts for sleeves from both sides = 113 (119) 125 sts. In 55 cm = 118 rows from the set-up row, bind off the central 43 sts for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 1 x 1 st in 2nd row. In 57 cm = 122 rows from the set-up row, bind off the rest 34 (37) 40 sts of sleeves/shoulders. Finish the second side in the same way.
Make in the same way, as back, but with V-shape neck-hole. For this, in 35,5 cm = 76 rows from the set-up row, bind off the central 3 sts and finish both sides separately. For neck-hole decrease (see decorative decreases) 21 x 1 st in every 2nd row from inwards.
Make shoulder/upper seams sleeves. Fasten your work with 1 row of single crochets with crochet hook 4,5. Make side/lower seams. Fasten the edges of sleeves and lower edge of work in the same way.
