Phoebe Cardigan

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice® Baby

GAUGE:

15 sts + 32 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (knit every row). 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.

Phoebe Cardigan Reviewed by Kim on 2009-05-15 *****
This is the first sweater I ever attempted and it turned out great... thanks to the easy to understand, excellent written instructions. I was a little scared off by the pocket welts and the picking up and knitting stitches... all new techniques for me when I made this sweater. Adorable sweater... great pattern even for a beginner! I used Vanna's Choice yarn... very nice.
