Inez Cardigan

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

14 sts + 20 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) with one strand each of A and B held together 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

Sweater is knit with 2 strands of yarn held together throughout.

Inez Cardigan Reviewed by lori fryns on 2013-05-03 **
I am an advanced knitter, and the collar of this pattern drove me insane. The directions are horrible and made no sense at all. I devised my own collar and it worked out well.
