Knit Southwestern Pullover

Lion Brand« Lion® Cotton

GAUGE:

16 sts + 24 rows = 4" (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) on larger 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.

Knit Southwestern Pullover Reviewed by Nancy Saunders on 2012-02-22 *****
I just finished this sweater last night. It was easy to make and doesn't look as long as the one on the model. I used a different color pattern, but still the cotton yarn. It is very comfortable.
