Size: S (L).
Flower pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 10 + 1. Work due to the scheme. Start every row, as stated on the scheme, sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-7th rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-7th rows.
Stripes order: 1 olive row, * 3 dark-turquoise rows, 3 green rows, 3 light-blue rows, 3 lemon-yellow rows*; repeat from * to *.
Stitches control: 21,5 sts x 8 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Make 101 (111) chain sts + 2 chain sts increase with olive yarn and work with flower pattern due to the stripes order. In 56 cm = 45 rows (55 cm = 44 rows) from the set-up row, leave 4,5 cm = 10 sts open from both sides for arm-hole (= 1 pattern repeat). In 75 cm = 60 rows from the set-up row, finish your work. The central 14 cm form neck-hole, outer 12 (14,5) cm – shoulders.
Make in the same way, as back, but with deeper neck-hole. For this, in 65 cm = 52 rows from the set-up row, leave the central 14 cm open and finish each side separately. Finish your work at the same height, as back on the rest parts of shoulder 12 (14,5) cm wide.
Make shoulder seams. Make the 1st row of flower pattern along the lower edge of front and back with olive yarn. Make side seams.
