Inishturk Sweater and Tam

Lion Brand® Fishermen's Wool®

GAUGE:

Sweater 16 sts and 21 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) with size 8 (5 mm) needles over Double Seed st.
Hat 16 sts and 28 rows = 4 in. with size 9 (5.5 mm) needles over St st (k on RS, p on WS).

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

NOTES:

sk2p Slip 1 st to right needle, k2tog, pass sl st over—2 sts decreased. 
sk3p Slip 1 st to right needle, k3tog, pass sl st over—3 sts decreased.

Inishturk Sweater and Tam Reviewed by cybro on 2014-11-15 ***
too many cables! love the pattern and the sweater looks great but.....the weight of so many cable stitches seems to make the sweater grow longer on me. gave it to my husband...fits right over his belly.
