Image of Dalmatian Pullover Knit

Our favorite children's movie inspired this scene-stealing look -- the hood even has dog ears! You'll have no bobbins to worry about with the easy-knit sweater -- the spots are duplicate stitched on after the garment is finished.

Dalmatian Pullover Knit

Lion Brand« Jiffy®

GAUGE:

14 sts + 18 rows = 4" (10 cm) in St st with size 10 needles. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
