Sunrise Stripes Pullover

Lion Brand« Baby Wool

GAUGE:

17 sts + 24 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd). 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.

NOTES:

1. Pullover is knit circularly, in one piece from the neck down. Sleeves are knit downwards from body.
2. To create a stretchy, elastic neck that will slip easily over baby's head, it is important that you cast on very loosely. We suggest you use a spare needle one or two sizes larger to cast on, then change to smaller needles to knit the sweater.


PULLOVER
Yoke

With double pointed needles, loosely cast on 50 (54, 54, 60, 68) sts. Divide sts over 4 needles as follows: 17 (17, 17, 17, 19) sts on needle 1 for back, 8 (10, 10, 13, 15) sts on needle 2 for first sleeve, 17 (17, 17, 17, 19) sts on needle 3 for front, and 8 (10, 10, 13, 15) sts on needle 4 for 2nd sleeve. 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.
Rnd 1: Knit all sts on all 4 needles.
Rnd 2: Needle 1: K1, M1, k15 (15, 15, 15, 17), M1, k1; Needle 2: K1, M1, k6 (8, 8, 11, 13), M1, k1; Needle 3: K1, M1, k15 (15, 15, 15, 17), M1, k1; Needle 4: K1, M1, k6 (8, 8, 11, 13), M1, k1 - 58 (62, 62, 68, 76) sts at the end of this rnd.

Rep last 2 rnds, changing to circular needle when sts have been sufficiently increased, until you have a total of 154 (166, 182, 196, 212) sts - 43 (45, 49, 51, 55) sts on needle 1 for back, 34 (38, 42, 47, 51) sts on needle 2 for first sleeve, 43 (45, 49, 51, 55) sts on needle 3 for front, 34 (38, 42, 47, 51) sts on needle 4 for 2nd sleeve.
