Wisteria Shawl Collar Pullover

Lion Brand« Amazing®

GAUGE:

17 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) using 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.

Compliments every time I wear it! Reviewed by on 2013-10-18 ****
I made this in "Joshua Tree" in size medium. The amount of wool was adequate, but I found the sweater overall length a little short. Also, I found that the collar for the medium size was also a little short and pulls the front of the sweater up in the front a bit when wearing it. Since I do knit a little loosely this was a bit of a let-down. Still it makes a nice warm sweater with a cozy but comfortable collar that doesn't bind. After I'd finished, I went back to the store and got an extra ball of yarn and picked up the stitches all around the bottom on circular needles. I continued ribbing for almost the entire ball. There is a slight line where I picked up the stitches, but the overall length is much cozier and the collar no longer lunges for my throat! I get compliments every time I wear it!!
