Relief Crochet Pullover
850 (900) 950g of coral Lana Rossa Pico yarn (100% cotton; 140m/50g);
Crochet hooks 3,5 and 4.
Size: S (M) L.
Pattern for fringe, crochet hook 4: the initial quantity of sts is multiple 10 + 1. Work due to the scheme 1. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-9th rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-9th rows.
Main pattern, crochet hook 3,5: the initial quantity of sts is multiple 5. Work due to the scheme 2 above the last row of fringe. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-4th rows x once, then, repeat 3rd-4th rows.
Patterns order: 18 rows of main pattern, 25 rows with pattern for fringe, then, work with the main pattern.
Stitches control: pattern for fringe: 23 sts x 7,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Main pattern: 23 sts x 13 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Make 101 (111) 121 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and work with pattern for fringe. In 15 cm = 11 rows from the set-up row, continue work with the main pattern, make 100 (110) 120 single crochets in the 1st row = 19 (21) 23 pattern repeats + sts before and after the last pattern repeats. In 28 (26) 23 cm from the beginning of the main pattern, leave 4 cm from both side for arm-holes. Work on the rest sts to 45 cm from the beginning of the main pattern and finish your work.
Make in the same way, as back, but with deeper neck-hole. For this, in 37 cm from the beginning of the main pattern, leave the central 3 pattern repeat in symmetry and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, leave 1 x 2 cm, 2 x 1 cm and 3 x 0,5 cm in every row from inwards. Finish your work on the rest sts of shoulder at the same height, as back.
Make 71 chain sts + 1 chain st increase and work due to the patterns order. In 32 cm from the set-up row, increase 2 (4) 7 cm from both sides during the next 24 cm for sleeve chamfers. At first, make increases as double crochets, then, include the increased sts in the pattern. In 60 cm from the set-up row, finish your work.
Make shoulder seams. Sew up the sleeves, make side and sleeve seams. Fasten the neck-hole with 1 row of single crochets and 1 row of “shrimp stitch”.
