Boatneck Raglan Pullover

Lion Brand Lion® Organic Cotton

GAUGE:

19 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) on straight needles 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:

Boatneck Raglan Pullover Reviewed by Kelly on 2011-07-24 ****
Made this for my sister in law. She is a small and the medium fit her well but was too tight in the armpit area. I had to make some 1'' pieces to place in the arm seam to make it more comfortable. Plan on making myself this sweater but in a deep navy blue and making the sleeves 3/4 so it will be more of a nautical every day sweater. I live in a Sea port town in New England and all the tourists that saw me working on it wanted one too!
