Stitches control: 28 sts x 9 row = 10 x 10 cm.
Back and Front
Make 280 chain sts with white yarn and work with main pattern, marking side lines – 70 sts for right front, 140 sts for back and 70 sts for left front. In 10 cm = 9 rows from the set-up row, make decreases due to the scheme 3 in the marked places. In 28 cm = 25 rows from the set-up row, leave 9 sts for arm-holes in the marked places and finish each part separately.
At first, make back, decrease 5 x 2 sts from both sides in every row for arm-holes and 1 x 2 sts in the next 2nd row. In 46 cm = 41 rows from the set-up row, leave the central 30 sts for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 5 sts from inwards and 2 x 2 sts in every row. In 49 cm = 44 rows from the set-up row, finish your work.
Then, make left front, make arm-hole from the right side in the same way, as for back. In 41 cm = 37 rows from the set-up row, leave 15 sts from the left side for neck-hole and 1 x 4 sts in every row and 5 x 2 sts. Finish your work at the height of back.
Make in symmetry to left front.
Make 90 chain sts with white yarn and work with main pattern. In 25 cm = 23 rows from the set-up row, make sleeve cap, matching with pattern design. In 42 cm = 38 rows from the set-up row, finish your work.
Make shoulder seams, sew up the sleeves and make sleeve seams. Make fringe along front and neck-hole, make 1st-2nd row with white yarn and 3rd-4th rows – with light-violet yarn.
