Wrong-side pattern: in RS row – purls, in WS row – knit sts.
Make all zigzag patterns due to the schemes, on which only RS rows are stated, make WS rows as sts face. Start with 1 selvage st, pattern repeat, finish with st after pattern repeat and 1 selvage st. 3rd and 7th rows mean decreases rows.
Zigzag pattern A: the quantity of sts is multiple 18 + 1 + 2 selvage sts. Repeat 1st-2nd rows.
Zigzag pattern B: the quantity of sts is multiple 16 + 1 + 2 selvage sts. Repeat 5th-6th rows.
Zigzag pattern C: the quantity of sts is multiple 14 + 1 + 2 selvage sts. Repeat 9th-10th rows.
Stripes order A: 2 black rows, *4 mustard rows, 4 black rows*; repeat from * to *.
Stripes order B: * 2 black rows, 2 mustard rows*; repeat from * to *.
Stitches control: 20 sts x 21 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Cast on 129 (147) sts with black yarn and make 1 cm of wrong-side pattern for placket. Then, work with zigzag pattern A due to the scheme A. In 15 cm = 32 rows from placket, make the 1st row of decreases (= 3rd row of the scheme) for side chamfers = 101 (115) sts. After that, work with zigzag pattern C. In 59 cm = 124 rows from placket, bind off 1 x 8 (9) sts from both sides for shoulder chamfers, then, bind off 2 x 7 (9) sts in every 2nd row. In 62 cm = 130 rows from placket, bind off the rest 57 (61) sts. The central 43 sts form neck-hole, outer 7 (9) sts – shoulders.
Make in the same way, as back, but in 54,5 cm = 114 rows from placket, bind off the central 11 sts for neck-hole and finish both sides separately. For smooth rounding, bind off 1 x 6 sts, 1 x 4 sts, 1 x 2 sts and 4 x 1 st in every 2nd row from inwards. In 62 cm = 130 rows from placket, bind off the rest 7 (9) sts of shoulder.
Cast on 59 (73) sts with black yarn and make placket in the same way, as for back. Then, work with zigzag pattern C due to the stripes order B. At the same time, increase 14 x 1 st in every 6th row, starting from placket from both sides for chamfers, include increased sts in pattern = 87 (101) sts. In 43 cm = 90 rows from placket, bind off all sts.
Make shoulder seams. For collar, cast on 92 sts along neck-hole with mustard color yarn and circular knitting needles and make 4 circle rows of purls and 4 circle rows of knit sts by turn. At 24 cm height, bind off all sts as knit sts. Sew up the sleeves. Make side and sleeve seams.
