Jazzy Snazzy Pants

Lion Brand® LB Collection® Superwash Merino

GAUGE:

22 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop – 1 st increased.
M1 as if to purl (make 1 st as if to purl) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between the needles and placing it onto the left needle. Purl this new stitch through the back loop – 1 st increased.

Jazzy Snazzy Pants Reviewed by carrie on 2010-03-01 *****
I made the pants and sweater for my daughter. It is really cute, and an easy pattern to make. I really liked making the sweater in the round, no sewing seams. We get lots of compliments when she wears this outfit---plus it is her favorite because it is so comfty, like wearing pajamas!!
