V Shawl

Lion Brand« Nature's Choice Organic® Cotton

GAUGE:

14 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

kfb (knit into front and then back)
An increase worked as follows:
1. Knit the next st through the front loop, but do not remove the st from your left hand needle.
2. Knit the same st once more, this time inserting your needle through the back loop of the st. You will have created 2 loops (sts) on your right hand needle.
3. Drop the st from your left hand needle - you have increased 1 st.

NOTES:

1. In First Half, stitches are increased at the beg and decreased at the end of every other row, to form diagonal edges of one leg of V.
2. In Second Half, the increases and decreases are worked on the opposite edges, to form diagonal edges of other leg of V.
3. Stitch markers are used to keep track of which edge is the increase edge and which the decrease edge.
