  • Gauge: 24 sts/10 cm using jp#4 (3.3mm)

  • Using provisional crochet cast on, CO 360 sts. So many sts…><

  • Do the neck before separating sleeves. I want the neck circum about 75 cm (before doing neck band). 75cm x 2.4sts=180sts 360sts-180sts=180sts I should decrease half number of the sts.

  • Pleat:Starting at LF, {4sp, k33, (5zp, 5sp) 4 times, k33, 4zp} twice --rem 180sts

  • Neckband I-cord BO around. Crochet sl around below I-cord.

Z pleat= take 3sts onto needle A, take next 3sts onto needle B. Turn needle B around 180 degrees clockwise. K3tog.
S peat=take sts like Zpleat. Turn needle B around 180 degrees anti-clockwise behind LN. Place needle A behind needle B (no need turn it).

  • Body: knit even till 4cm from the last row of body. Increase 4sts at the sides. Switch to 3mm needles, knit around. Decrease 84 sts evenly by k2tog.

  • 1x1 rib:2.5cm. Tubular Cast-Off

  • Sleeve: pick up and knit 2sts from armpit. ssk & k2tog on next round. knit evenly for 107 rnds. Doing k2tog, I-cord BO. (k2,sl1, sl2,sssk)

Befor CO…
Neck-copy Roko’s way (Arigatou!)
Sleeve-long sleeves
Body-loose like Blouse

<del>(9sts for one pleat) x 28 times + K4 sts x 24 times=348sts co360-348=12sts
dec 6sts x 28=168sts
180-168=12sts-i still have to dec 12 sts--3sts dec in each section(RF,LF,RB,LB)

<del>Start at beg of LF.
LF:S pleat(sp), ssk, k3, (Z pleat(zp), k4) 4 times, zp, k3, zp with 12 sts,Front Center, RF:sp with 12 sts, k3, sp, (k4, sp) 4 times, k2tog, k3, zp
Repeat LF and RF. (dec 168+4+4=176sts; 184sts rem)

Inverted box pleat @ every four center;front, back, shoulders.

Next rnd: decresing more. Getting nervous the neck circum looks way too big. So just to make me feel better, do ssk with the last st of zp and next k st, k2tog with one st before sp and first st of sp. Do these around (dec 28sts; now 156 sts rem)
Slip st 2 around using Crochet hook.
(Temporally, orange edge. Still not sure about calor cmbo)
