Main pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 9 + 2. Work due to the scheme. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-8th rows x once, then, repeat 3rd-8th rows due to the stripes order.
Stripes order: * 2 pink rows, 1 brown row, 2 orange rows, 1 brown row, 2 red rows, 1 brown row*; repeat from * to *.
Stitches control: 21 sts x 9,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Back and Front
Make 191 (218) 236 chain sts with brown yarn and work with main pattern due to the stripes order = 21 (24) 26 pattern repeats + 1 initial and final st (= 3 (4) 5 pattern repeats + initial and final sts for front, 2 pattern repeats for arm-holes and 11 (12) 12 pattern repeats for back). In 39 (39) 41 cm from the set-up row, skip initial and final sts from both sides for neck-hole chamfer and ½ pattern repeat from both sides. Then, skip 3 x ½ pattern repeat in every 3rd row. At the same time in 44 cm from the set-up row, leave the central 15 (16) 16 pattern repeats and make left front at first. Finish your work on the rest sts of shoulder in 62 (62) 64 cm from the set-up row. For back, work on the central 11 (12) 12 pattern repeats and finish your work at the height front.

Then, skip 4 x ½ pattern repeat from both sides in every 3rd row for sleeve cap and 0 (0) 1 x ½ pattern repeat in the next 2nd row.
