36/38 (40/42) 44/46 
Yarn (55% cotton, 45% flax; 140 m / 50 g) - 300 (350) 400 g pink mottled; knitting needles number 3.5 and 4.


Front rows - front loops, wrong rows - wrong loops.

Front rows - purl loops, wrong rows - front loops.

The number of loops is a multiple of 12 + 1 = knit acc. scheme. On it are given front rows. In the wrong rows, knit the stitches according to the pattern, knit the crochets on the wrong side. 

Start with 1 edge and loops before the rapport, repeat the rapport constantly, end with loops after the rapport and 1 edge. The 1st – 20th rows are constantly repeated.

In the front rows, knit both the first and last loops of the row with the front ones; in the wrong rows, remove these loops as wrong, while pulling the thread before work and tightening it tightly.

Right edge: knit the 5th and 6th stitches from the beginning of the row together with the front; left edge: knit the 6th and 5th stitches from the end of the row together with the front stitch with a slope to the left (remove 1 stitch as the front stitch, 1 front stitch, then stretch it through the removed stitch).


Right edge: hem, 1 front, from the next transverse thread knit 1 front crossed; 
left edge: before the penultimate loop of the row, knit 1 front crossed from the broach, 1 front, edge.

20.5 p. X 29.5 p. = 10 x 10 cm.



Type on knitting needles No. 4 117 (125) 133 loops and knit 1 wrong side of the front. This series is not taken into account in subsequent calculations. 

Then, for side cuts, knit as follows: 2 stitches with patent edge, 1 loop with wrong side stitch, 111 (119) 127 stitches with front stitch, 1 loop with wrong side stitch, 2 loops with patent edge. 

At the same time, for fitting, it is emphasized to reduce on both sides in each 7th row from the initial row 7 x 1 p., Alternately in each 4th and 6th row 6 x 1 p., As well as in each 4th row 4 x 1 p. = 83 (91) 99 p. 

After 30.5 cm = 90 rows from the initial row, the end of the section is reached. 

After that, no longer fulfill the patent edge and between the hem knit the front surface. 

After 40.5 cm = 120 rows from the initial row, it is emphasized to add 1 x 1 p. For lateral bevel on both sides, then in each 10th row 3 x 1 p. = 91 (99) 107 p. 

After 52 cm = 154 close the row from the starting row for the armholes on both sides 1 x 3 p. and in each 2nd row 2 x 2 p. 

Then, again knit with the patent edge and knit 1 p with the wrong side, as for side cuts. 

For further beveling, the armholes are emphasized to reduce in each 2nd row 20 (23) 26 x 1 st. = 37 (39) 41 st. 

After 68 cm = 200 rows (70 cm = 206 rows) 72 cm = 212 rows from the initial row continue work for the closing strap with knitting needles No. 3.5 with an elastic band, while in the 1st row, reduce 2 sts. = 35 (37) 39 st. 

For a stitch width of 2 cm, close all the loops according to the figure.

Knit like a back, but on the middle 61 loop knit a pattern of openwork rhombuses. 

After 68 cm = 200 rows (70 cm = 206 rows), 72 cm = 212 rows from the initial row to tie 1 front row to the back side for bending the drawstring, while reducing 2 points = 35 (37) 39 points, continue working with the front surface. 

At the same time add on both sides in each 2nd row from the fold 4 x 1 p. = 43 (45) 47 p. 

After 3.5 cm = 10 rows from the fold, close all the loops.

With a double thread, dial 6 loops on knitting needles No. 4 and knit as follows: 2 p. Patent edge, 2 p. Front stitch, 2 p. Patent edge. 

After 50 cm from the beginning of knitting, the straps close all the loops.

Make side seams, leaving the bottom 30.5 cm open for cuts. 

The front drawer along the fold is hemmed to the wrong side. 

Put the strap on the front drawstring and sew both ends from the wrong side to the outer edges of the back strap.
