You’ll need:

200g of grey Algarve yarn (100% cotton; 142m/50g);

200g of the same yarn, but in purple color;

Straight knitting needles 3,5;

Circular knitting needles 3.


Size: M.


Used Patterns

Net pattern: start and finish every row with 1 selvage st.

1st row: * 1 knit st, 1 yarn over*; repeat from * to *;

2nd row: 1 knit st, slip yarn overs of the previous row and draw sts;

3rd and 4th rows: knit.

Repeat 1st-4th rows.

Patterns order: * 16 grey rows, 16 purple rows*.


Stitches control: 15,5 sts x 35,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.



Start with right sleeve and cast on 43 sts with grey yarn, make 1 WS row of knit sts. Make this row with net pattern. In 9 cm = 32 rows from the set-up row, increase 1 st from both sides, 13 x 1 st from both sides in every 4th row and 7 x 1 st in every 2nd row, then, cast on 9 x 2 sts in every 2nd row = 121 sts, include the increased sts in pattern. For front and back cast on 45 sts from both sides in 33 cm = 118 rows from the set-up row = 211 sts and continue work with needed color due to the pattern. In 52 cm = 184 rows from the set-up row, the center of pullover is reached. After that, bind off the 63rd and 196th st and cast them on in the next row. After that, work on all sts and finish pullover in symmetry. In 104 cm = 368 rows from the set-up row, make 43 sts of 1 RS row of knit sts and bind off all sts as knit sts.



Make side and sleeve seams. Cast on 160 sts along lower edge of pullover with circular knitting needles and grey yarn and work in the following way:

1st rnd: purl;

2nd rnd: knit;

3rd rnd: purl;

4th rnd: * 1 knit st, 1 yarn over*; repeat from * to *;

5th rnd: purl, slip yarn over of the previous rnd;

6th rnd: knit;

7th rnd: purl.

Bind off all sts as knit sts.
