Midnight Glamour Pullover

Lion Brand« Vanna's Glamour®

GAUGE:

22 sts + 30 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

6/2 LC (6 over 2 left cross) Slip 6 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k2, then k2, p2, k2 from cable needle.

M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.
M1P (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.

Midnight Glamour Pullover Reviewed by Jodie Stevenson on 2014-01-16 *
I read the reviews of this sweater and knew I was likely to run into problems, but I decided to take on this pattern as a challenge, nonetheless. To get straight to the point, there are just too many issues with this pattern to make it worthwhile. Someone at Lion Brand needs to revisit this pattern (for each size!) and completely revise the instructions.
I knitted this sweater in size small. While I managed to get my sweater to look like the bottom half of the photo, I couldn't get the top to work out exactly as shown.
Most of the problems with this sweater concern the travelling cables. I couldn't get my cables to run completely up to the shoulders of the sweater because I simply ran out of width to do so. Since the cables travel diagonally, you must have a certain amount of width to go along with the height in order to get the cable to run to the top of the shoulder. My cables didn't quite make it.
Another problem is the odd number of stitches in the center of the top "V". It's really hard to continue in k2p2 when you're dealing with an odd number of stitches. This odd number contributed to problems trying to follow the instructions. I couldn't repeat the instructions as given, because I kept having to adjust for the odd number of stitches in the center section.
My guess is, there is one size that works out just fine, since someone obviously got the sweater in the photo to work out. I'm also guessing that the original sweater was knitted from a graph and not from written instructions. Someone seems to have tried to generalize the cabling instructions in the written instructions to accomodate all sizes and these instructions just don't work as written.
If you want to knit a sweater in "Vanna's Glamour" that is quite similar in style to this one, I'd recommend pattern #L0576 - Ribbed Top. I have knitted this sweater with no problems and the results are quite nice.
