Striped Raglan Baby Pullover

Lion Brand« Martha Stewart CraftsTM/MC Extra Soft Wool Blend

GAUGE:

18 sts + 26 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) with smaller 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:

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.
ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip 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.

NOTES:

1. Pullover is worked in one piece from the neck down following Stripe Sequence for color. Sts for sleeves are placed onto holders. After Pullover body is completed, sleeves are worked down to wrist.
2. When working Stripe Sequence, carry unused color up the WS between rnds.
3. 'Work even' in the instructions, means to continue in the pattern st you have established without changing the st count by increasing, decreasing, or binding off.
4. Keep careful count of which rnd of the Stripe Sequence you are on so that the stripes will match on the sleeves.


STRIPE SEQUENCE
*Work 6 rnds with A, work 2 rnds with B; rep from * for Stripe Sequence.

PULLOVER
With double pointed needles and A, cast on 64 (72, 80) sts loosely.
Divide sts onto 4 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.
Rnd 1: K28 (31, 34) sts for back, place marker (pm), k4 (5, 6) sts for sleeve, pm, k28 (31, 34) sts for front, pm, k4 (5, 6) for sleeve.
Sl markers as you come to them.
Rnd 2: Knit.
Rnd 3: *K1, M1, k to 1 st before next marker, M1, k1, slip marker, (K1, M1) twice, k to 2 sts before next marker, (M1, k1) twice, sm; rep from * once more - 76 (84, 92) sts at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 4: Knit.
Notes: 1. Rnds 1-4 complete the first 4 rnds of the Stripe Sequence.
2. Change to circular needle when sts have been sufficiently increased.

Rep last 3 rnds, changing color as in Stripe Sequence, until there are 172 (192, 212) sts, end with a Rnd 4.
Notes:
1. There should be 46 (51, 56) back sts, 40 (45, 50) sts for first sleeve, 46 (51, 56) front sts, and 40 (45, 50) sts for 2nd sleeve.
2. End with a Rnd 4 means that the last rnd you work should be a Rnd 4.
Knit one rnd.

Divide for Body and Sleeves
Dividing Rnd:
K across 46 (51, 56) back sts, sl next 40 (45, 50) sleeve sts to a holder, k across 46 (51, 56) front sts, sl last 40 (45, 50) sleeve sts to a holder - 92 (102, 112) sts rem for body.
Work in St st (k every rnd), and continue changing color as in Stripe Sequence, until piece measures about 6 1/2 (7, 7 1/2) in. (16.5 (18, 19) cm) from Dividing Rnd. Cut B.
Border: With A, purl one rnd, knit one rnd, purl one rnd.
Bind off.

Sleeve
Sl 40 (45, 50) sleeve sts from holder back onto double pointed needles. Place marker at underarm 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.
Continue to change color as in Stripe Sequence.
Rnds 1-6: Knit.
Decrease Rnd: K1, k2tog, k to last 3 sts, ssk, k1 - 38 (43, 48) sts at the end of this rnd.
Rep last 7 rnds 1 (2, 4) times - 36 (39, 40) sts rem.
Work even in St st until piece measures 5 (6, 9) in. (12.5 (15, 23) cm) from beg.
Cut B.
Border: With A, purl one rnd, knit one rnd, purl one rnd.
Bind off. Rep for 2nd sleeve.

FINISHING
Sew underarms.
Neck Edging
From RS, with double pointed needles and A, pick up and k 67 (75, 83) sts evenly spaced around neck. Without joining or working any rnds on these sts, bind off loosely, as if to purl.
Weave in ends.

Striped Raglan Baby Pullover Reviewed by Ivan hibbert on 2013-08-11 *****
I made the smallest size jumper and really like the simplicity of the pattern. However, when it came to picking up stitches around the neck I realised there were only 56 stitches available, and not the larger number advised. Also, the first increase row in the pattern cannot be followed exactly as written when starting with only 4 sleeve stitches.
