Net pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 4 + 1 + 2 selvage sts. Work due to the scheme 1, on which both RS and WS rows are stated. Start with 1 selvage st, pattern repeat, finish with st after pattern repeat and 1 selvage st. Repeat 1st-2nd rows.
Pattern for ruffles: the quantity of sts is multiple 12 + 11 + 2 selvage sts. Work due to the scheme 2, on which only RS rows are stated, make WS rows due to the pattern, make yarn overs as purls. Start with 1 selvage st, pattern repeat, finish with the first 11 sts of pattern repeat and 1 selvage st. Make 1st-18th rows x once, make decreases in the 7th-13th rows, as stated.
Stitches control: net pattern: 18 sts x 21 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Pattern for ruffles: 18 rows = 11 cm.
Cast on 83 (91) sts and make 1 WS row of purls (don’t take this row into account). Then, work with net pattern. For better fitting, bind off 4 x 1 st in every 6th row from both sides = 75 (83) sts. In 14,5 cm = 30 rows from the set-up row, increase 1 st from both sides for chamfers and 3 x 1 st in every 8th (10th) row = 3 x 1 st = 83 (91) sts, include the increased sts in the pattern. In 32,5 cm = 68 rows (34,5 cm = 72 rows) from the set-up row, bind off 4 sts from both sides for arm-holes and 1 x 2 sts, 2 x 1 st in every 2nd row = 67 (75) sts. In 52,5 cm = 110 rows (56cm = 118 rows) from the set-up row, bind off 4 (5) sts from both sides for shoulder chamfers and 2 x 5 sts (6) sts in every 2nd row. At the same time with the 1st decrease of shoulder, bind off the central 33 (35) sts for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 1 x 3 sts in every 2nd row. In 54,5 cm = 114 rows (58 cm = 122 rows) from the set-up row, bind off all the sts.
At the same time from the set-up row, increase 1 x 4 sts, 3 x 3 sts, 2 x 2 sts and 1 x 1 st in every 2nd row from the left side, include these sts in the net pattern. At the same time, make chamfer and better fitting from the right side in the same way, as for back = 33 (37) sts. In 30,5 cm = 64 rows (32,5 cm = 68 rows) from the set-up row, bind off 1 st from the left side for neck-hole chamfer and 10 (11) x 1 st in every 4th row. At the same time, make arm-hole and shoulder chamfer in the same way, as for back. Finish your work at the height of back.
Make in symmetry to the left front.
Cast on 133 (145) sts and make 11 cm = 18 rows for ruffles with pattern for ruffles = 45 (49) sts. Then, work with net pattern, start between selvage sts from the 2nd st of the pattern repeat and repeat the pattern x 10 (11) times. At the same time from ruffle, increase 8 x 1 st in every 8th row from both sides for sleeve chamfers (4 x 1 st in every 6th row and 5 x 1 st in every 8th row) = 61 (67) sts, include the increased sts in the pattern. In 34,5 cm = 72 rows from the ruffle, bind off 4 sts from both sides for sleeve caps and 2 x 2 sts, 10 x 1 st and 2 x 4 sts in every 2nd row. In 48,5 cm = 102 rows from ruffle, bind off the rest 9 (15) sts.

Cast on 241 (265) sts with circular knitting needles for back ruffles and make 11 cm = 18 rows of the pattern for ruffles, then, bind off the rest 81 (89) sts. Sew ruffle to the lower edge of back.
