Cast on 98 stitches. Knit 210 rows (80 cm) in garter stitch and move on to knitting the armholes.

To do this, increase every other row 8 times in the following order.

In total, add 15 loops on each side. There are 128 stitches on the needles.

Next, knit the fabric exactly to a height of 54 rows (21 cm). Close the loops.

Cast on 48 stitches on the needles. Knit 210 rows (80cm) and move on to knitting the armhole.

After increasing 15 stitches, there should be 63 stitches on the knitting needles.

Knit another 38 rows and begin shaping the neckline.

Cast off the remaining 47 stitches.

 Sew the shoulder seams.

Connect the back and shelves with side seams, leaving 36cm slits.

Crochet the cuts with one row of sc and crab step. 

Tie the neckline and shelf strips as follows: 4 rows – RLS and

"crawfish step" 

First we tie the strips - 135 RLS.

Then we process the neck, slightly seating it. At the back neckline – 33СБН, at the front neck – 21СБН.

Tie the open sections of the sleeve with 60 sc.

Next in the circle we knit 60 rubles in garter stitch on 60 loops.

We tie a sc in one row, knitting every 6th and 7th sc together. Next we knit another 3p at 52sc and tie it with a “crawfish step”. 


And finally, let's start knitting pockets size – 20cm x 20cm.

Cast on 33 stitches on the needles. Knit 28r.

Crochet the pockets with one row of sc and crab step. Sew the pocket with a chain stitch using a crochet hook.

1st row  – 6VP, CC3H in the first loop of the chain, – knit the required number of rings.

2nd row – 7 sc on each side of the ring, tie all the rings, turn in a circle and tie 7 sc on the opposite side of the ring.

3rd row – tying in a circle: SS, VP
