Elizabeth Wrap Cardigan

Lion Brand® LB Collection® Superwash Merino

GAUGE:

23 sts + 30 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with larger 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

NOTES:

1. Stitch markers should be split-ring style.
2. Body is knit as a rectangle, beginning at one front edge, then working to opposite front edge.

Suzie Wrap Cardigan Reviewed by Suzie Kemp on 2013-12-05 *
Easy to follow the pattern, and not many techniques required- just patience and stick-with-it-ness. I had to use the largest size sleeve pattern as the pattern for my size resulted in sleeves that were far too small. I lengthened the sleeves and shortened the sides, and added a button on the left breast and buttonhole on the right collar. Took about 6 months, whilst working full time, organising a wedding, and completing several other projects.
