Knit Color Block Pullover

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Chunky


12 sts + 18 rows = 4" (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) on larger needle. 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 Color Block Pullover Reviewed by patgeraldodelima2002 on 2014-07-18 *
An easy to follow pattern, I stuck to one colour of wool however, I'm sooo disappointed in the finished product. (my fault, not the pattern, but would like help with sewing up) I seem to have great difficulty in sewing it altogether!! One sleeve is fine the other looks hideous, not sure how I can improve on this. I've taken off the sleeve several times, but same problem. Can anyone give advice on how to get a professional finish please?
