Straight and circular knitting needles 7.
Size: S-M (L-XL).
1 x 1 rib.
Garter stitch: knit sts.
Stockinette stitch: in RS row – knit sts, in WS row – purls.
Relief zigzags pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 13 + 2 selvage sts. Work due to the scheme, on which only RS rows are stated, make WS rows sts as they face, make yarn overs as pruls. Repeat pattern between selvage sts from 1st to 14th rows.
Stitches control: stockinette stitch: 10,5 sts x 16 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Relief zigzags pattern: 10,5 sts x 17,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 53 (67) sts and make 18 cm of rib. Then, make 2 cm = 4 rows of garter stitch for placket, decrease 1 (0) st in the 1st row = 54 (67) sts. After that, work with stockinette stitch. In 17,5 cm = 28 rows from placket, start work with relief zigzags pattern. In 18,5 cm = 32 rows (12,5 cm = 22 rows) from patterns change, bind off 3 sts from both sides for arm-holes and 1 x 2 sts and 2 x 1 st in every 2nd row = 40 (53) sts. In 37,5 cm = 66 rows from patterns change, bind off the central 12 (17) sts for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 1 x 4 sts in the next 2nd row. In 40 cm = 70 rows from patterns change, bind off the central 8 (13) sts and 2 x 2 sts, 2 x 1 st in every 2nd row.
For deeper neck-hole, bind off the central 8 (13) sts in 32 cm = 56 rows from patterns change and 2 x 2 sts, 2 x 1 st in every 2nd row.
Cast on 23 (27) sts and make 16 cm of rib. Then, make placket in the same way, as for back, increase 1 st in the 1st row = 24 (28) sts. After that, work with stockinette stitch, for chamfers increase 2 x 1 st of stockinette stitch in every 6th row (3 x 1 st of stockinette stitch in every 4th row) from both sides = 28 (34) sts. At the same time with the last increase, in 7,5 cm = 12 rows from placket, start work with relief zigzags pattern. At the same time, for sleeve chamfers, increase 3 x 1 st of stockinette stitch in every 10th row (6 x 1 st of stockinette stitch in every 4th and 6th row) = 34 (36) sts. In 20,5 cm = 36 rows from patterns change, bind off 1 st from both sides for sleeve caps, 1 x 1 st in the next 2nd row, 2 x 1 st in every 4th row and 3 x 1 st and 2 x 2 sts in every 4th row (8 x 1 st, 1 x 2 sts, 1 x 3 sts in every 2nd row). In 33 cm = 58 rows from patterns change, bind off the rest 12 (18) sts.
Make shoulder seams. For collar, cast on 58 (68) sts along neck-hole with circular knitting needles, make 1 circle row of purls and work with rib. At 26 cm height of collar, bind off all sts due to the pattern. Sew up the sleeves, make side and sleeve seams.
