Oversized Lace V-Neck

Lion Brand« LB Collection« Silk Mohair

GAUGE:

12 sts + 16 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Lace pattern with 2 strands of yarn held tog. 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:

BPDC (back post double crochet) Yo, insert hook from back to front then to back, going around the post of st, draw up a loop, (yo and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice.
Skip st in front of the BPDC.
FPDC (front post double crochet) Yo, insert hook from front to back then to front, going around the post of st, draw up a loop, (yo and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice.
Skip st behind the FPDC.
sk2p Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over - 2 sts decreased.
ssk (slip, slip, knit) Sl next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog - 1 st decreased.

STITCH PATTERN
Lace pattern (multiple of 6 + 2 sts)
Row 1 and all other WS rows:
Purl.
Row 2 (RS): K1, *yo, k1, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog; rep from * across to last st, k1.
Row 4: K1, *(k1, yo) 2 times, k1, sk2p; rep from * across to last st, k1.
Row 6: K1, *ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, k1, yo; rep from * across to last st, k1.
Row 8: K1, *sk2p, (k1, yo) 2 times, k1; rep from * across to last st, k1.
Rep Rows 1-8 for Lace pattern.

NOTES:

1. Sweater is worked using 2 strands of yarn held tog.
2. After placing markers, slip markers on every following row.
3. On the first row you work of Front and Back, place one color of stitch markers between each rep of the Lace pattern. Place markers of a different color after the first st and before the last st - these 2 sts are the selvedge sts and are always worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS). Remaining sts are worked in Lace pattern.
4. On the first row you work of Sleeves, place a stitch marker between each rep of the Lace pattern.
5. Work Lace pattern from written instructions below or from chart. If working from chart, read chart from right to left on RS rows and from left to right on WS rows.
6. A yarn over (yo) creates a new loop on your needle and is worked by wrapping the yarn around your right hand needle. Do not use an existing stitch to make a yarn over. The finished yarn over will leave an open space (like an eyelet) in your knitting-that is part of this design.
7. Sweater design includes a crochet edging around neck and wrist edge of Sleeves. If you are unfamiliar with the sts used in this edging, simply work sc's evenly spaced around neck, then work 2 or more rnds of sc (or dc) around neck. Work the same edging at the wrist edge of Sleeves.


BACK
With 2 strands of yarn held tog, cast on 58 (64, 70, 76, 82, 88) sts.

Keeping selvedge sts in St st (k on RS, p on WS), continue even in Lace pattern as established until piece measures 28 (29, 30, 31, 32, 33) in. (71 (73.5, 76, 78.5, 81.5, 84) cm) from beg, end with a WS row.

Work Front same as Back until piece measures about 16 (17, 18, 19, 20, 21) in. (40.5 (43, 45.5, 48.5, 51, 53.5) cm) from beg, end with a Row 1 (5, 1, 5, 1, 5) of Lace pattern.
Divide for Neck
Place a st marker of a different color than Lace rep markers in center of row.
Next Row (RS): Work to center marker, join 2 separate strands of yarn and work to end of row - 29 (32, 35, 38, 41, 44) sts each side.
You will now be working the sts on both sides of the Front at once, using separate balls of yarn and continuing in Lace pattern as established.
Work 1 row even (Note: Work even means that you are not increasing or decreasing (adding or subtracting) sts).
Next (Dec) Row (RS): Work in pattern as established to 3 sts before neck edge, k2tog, k1; on other side, k1, ssk, work to end - 28 (31, 34, 37, 40, 43) sts each side.

Rep last 6 rows 6 (6, 5, 5, 4, 4) more times - 15 (18, 23, 26, 31, 34) sts each side.
Continue to dec at each neck edge every RS row 1 (1, 4, 4, 7, 7) more time(s) - 14 (17, 19, 22, 24, 27) sts each side.
Work even until piece measures 28 (29, 30, 31, 32, 33) in. (71 (73.5, 76, 78.5, 81.5, 84) cm) from beg, end with a WS row.
Bind off loosely.

SLEEVES (make 2)
Note:
The Sleeves do not have selvedge sts.
All Sleeve sts are worked in the Lace pattern.
