Seed-Stitch Raglan Turtleneck

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

13 sts and 23 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] with double strand of yarn and larger needles in seed st. 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

PATTERN STITCH: Seed st (worked over odd number of sts):
Row 1 (RS):
K 1, *p 1, k 1; rep from * to end.
Row 2 & all foll rows: K the p sts and p the k sts as they face you. Rep Row 2 for seed st pat.

NOTES:

Garment is worked with double strand of yarn throughout unless otherwise specified. Always pull one strand from the outside of the ball and the other from the inside of the ball. The number of stitches given includes edge (seam) stitches.
