Pert Classic Pullover

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

19 sts + 27 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in 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.

Pert Classic Pullover Reviewed by Dorothy Vandiver on 2014-08-28 ****
I love the sweater, problem is I am dyslexic, I have less problems with crochet. Found a nice crochet pattern for a sweater but the hooks were too big, made it sloppy, and the sleeves were not shaped. Made it heavy in the sleeve and not very attractive. Using the sleeve to modify the crochet pattern. Thanks for all the information, it has been very helpful.
