Crochet hook 2.
Start your work with across relief part and work due to the scheme 1 to the needed length, which is the same as hips circumference. Make side seam. Then, make the needed quantity of sts along the upper edge of across relief part and continue work around due to the scheme 2 for 10 cm: * 2 double crochets in the 1st st, 2 chain sts, 2 double crochets in the 1st st*; repeat from * to *. Then, continue work and start making front due to the scheme 3. Crochet from up to down, sew them to make a wrap.
Place markers along the upper edge of thick part and mark the center of back with contrast yarn and also supposed lines of side seams. Then, continue work due to the scheme 4, place the pattern in such a way to get the central element of scheme, “pineapple”, in the center of back and side parts. Sew the 1st row of back to the 1st row of front in the end of the of the 1st row of back with the help of slip st, then, turn – the 2nd row of back. Join the 2nd row of back to the 2nd row of front in the end of the 2nd row with the help of slip st, turn. Continue work this way to the needed width of front and making back until you reach arm-hole. Make decreases for arm-hole, work with shorten rows to the needed depth of arm-hole. Then, work due to the scheme 4 straight for 19 cm at the height of back. Divide your work in half and finish each side separately – back neck-hole. Make cut for back neck-hole with shorten rows.
