Start every row with 3 or 1 chain st increase instead of 1 double crochet or 1 single crochet and sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-7th rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-7th rows. Starting from the 3rd row, make single crochets and double crochets in chain sts of the previous row.
Net pattern: the quantity of sts in the 1st row is multiple 5 + 1 + 1 chain st increase. Work due to the scheme 2 on the edges of back and front arm-holes. Start every row with 1 or 3 chain sts increase instead of the 1st single crochet or 1st double crochet and sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat.

Stitches control: main pattern: 14 sts x 7,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Net pattern: 25 sts x 9 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Make 29 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase with beige yarn and work with main pattern = 8 pattern repeats + ½ pattern repeat from both sides. Finish your work in 89 cm = 67 rows (97 cm = 73 rows) 105 cm = 79 rows from the set-up row.
Leave the first and last 17 (18,5) 20 rows from left side of lower placket and work on the central 33 (35 + ½ from both sides) 39 rows of the main pattern, make 62 (68) 74 double crochets = 19 (21) 23 pattern repeats of the 1st row with beige yarn, then, change to white yarn. In 21,5 cm = 16 rows from lower placket, leave 5 (8) 8 double crochets from both sides for arm-hole, which is 1,5 (2,5) 2,5 pattern repeats. Leave ½ arches in the next row, which is ½ pattern repeats = 15 (15) 17 pattern repeats + ½ pattern repeats from both sides. In 32 cm = 24 rows (32 cm = 24 rows) 36 cm = 27 rows from lower placket, continue work with beige yarn.

Fasten the edges of arm-holes with net pattern with beige yarn, make 10 (10) 12 pattern repeats on front and back edges and 10 (10) 12 pattern repeats = 20 (20) 24 pattern repeats = 101 (101) 121 sts. For sleeve chamfers, bind off 3 (1) 3 x ½ arch in the 4th row = 16 (18) 20 pattern repeats. At 13,5 cm = 12 rows (15,5 cm = 14 rows) 17,5 cm = 16 rows length of sleeve, make the 7th row of the main pattern x once (1,5 cm). Finish your work = 15 (17) 19 cm length of sleeve.
