Gossamer Cowl Pullover

Lion Brand LB Collection Silk Mohair

GAUGE:

22 sts + 28 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in rev St st (p on RS, k on WS) with smaller needles and 2 strands of yarn held tog. 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

Gossamer Cowl Pullover Reviewed by Alyce Estrem on 2011-02-05 *
This pattern is a mess. The cable pattern is wrong. 7/7RC should read k7, slip 7 on to cable needle, hold in back, k7, knit 7 from cable needle. The Sleeve and cowl portion of the pattern did not print out so I had to hand copy it. I haven't gotten to the sleeves or cowl yet but the pattern is awkwardly and confusingly written and seems to repeat itself. It should be interesting to try to make it come out right. Adding the lower edge ribbbing after the sweater is done is also odd and unnecessarily complicated. If I hadn;t come so far, I would scrap this sweater and make another style. It's awful!
