Pouf Pullover

Lion Brand Jiffy®

GAUGE:

15 sts + 20 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) with size 10 (6 mm) 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:

Kfb (knit in front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st – 1 st increased.
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.

PATTERN STITCHES
K1, p1 Rib worked in the rnd (multiple of 2 sts)
Rnd 1:
*K1, p1; rep from * around.
Rep Rnd 1 for K1, p1 Rib worked in the rnd.

K2, p2 Rib worked in the rnd (multiple of 4 sts)
Rnd 1:
*K2, p2; rep from * around.
Rep Rnd 1 for K2, p2 Rib worked in the rnd.

NOTES:

1. Sleeves and Body are worked separately from the lower edge up to the armhole. The pieces are then joined and worked in the round, decreasing to shape yoke.
2. Use different color markers for beg of rnd marker and for increase markers.


SLEEVE (make 2)
With smaller double pointed needles, cast on 22 sts. Divide sts onto double pointed needles. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
Work in K1, p1 Rib worked in the rnd until piece measures 1 1/2 in. (4 cm) from beg. Change to larger double pointed needles.
Next Rnd: Kfb in each st around – 44 sts at the end of this rnd.
Work 4 rnds in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd).
Note: In next rnd, markers are placed to indicate where incs are to be worked. Use a different color for the inc markers than for the beg of rnd marker.

Note: Incs have been staggered to avoid creating a distinct inc line.

Pouf Pullover Reviewed by Nancy Saunders on 2012-11-13 ****
This is a quick knit. The biggest problem I found was that the top of the true sleeves only come up to the elbow. At this point the body to the sweater starts. It makes wearing a coat over the sweater very uncomfortable because the armpit is down at the elbow. But the sweater is very comfy for in home wear and warmth. I thought the sleeves were short. Anticipating this, I added 1 1/2 inches to the length and it was still short for me. The ribbing all across the shoulders makes the sweater want to pull up constantly. The model makes it look smooth, but it just doesn't fit like that. I used the Jiffy yarn and it really feels soft and smooth. Yes I like the sweater but the rolling of the ribbing above my shoulders bugs me. Next time I make the sweater I will add more to the length of the sleeves and possibly less to the body and maybe that will force the ribbing to stay down. Folding the neck down helps.
