Fun with Color Blocking
The Altia Pullover features a bold neckline that embodies the empowering beauty of Cleopatra Queen of the Nile’s necklace. The unique stitch combination creates the illusion of a zigzag for a striking look. The perfect combination of texture color and fit, this design features a scoop neck and a slightly longer back for comfort and fit.

GAUGE- see this video for how to measure gauge properly
Using J/6.0mm hook and stitch pattern below
5 repeats (or 10sts) and 11 rows = 4″
Pattern will include height measurements, so the most important part of gauge for this pattern will be the stitch count.
ch(s) – chain(s), sc – single crochet, hdc – half double crochet, dc – double crochet, st(s) – stitch(es), BLO – back loop only, RS – right side, WS – wrong side, sl st – slip stitch
Fhdc- Foundation Half Double Crochet – Tutorial
Chain 3 (counts as first fhdc). Yarn over (YO) and insert hook in 3rd chain from hook *YO and pull up loop (3 loops on hook), YO and pull through 1 loop creating a chain, (this is an important step but easy to forget), YO and pull through all three loops on hook. This completes the second fhdc (remember your first ch3 counted as the first fhdc). To stitch the next fhdc, yarn over and insert the hook into the chain made in the 2nd fhdc and repeat from * to desired length or until the desired amount of sts are achieved.
- Pattern is written in size XS with changes for S-5x in parenthesis.
- Ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
- Each set of [brackets], either [sc and dc] in same st or [sc, ch 1, dc] in same st, are counted as a cluster.
- Stitch counts take place in <brackets> at the end of the row where a change takes place.
- Third color (for pink, grey and teal sample) shows the block of color listed as Color AA in the pattern.
