Eyelet Swing Cardi

Lion Brand® LB Collection® Cotton Bamboo

GAUGE:

21 sts + 26 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS).
25 sts + 26 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern st on Fronts.

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:

k2tog tbl (knit 2 together through the back loops): Insert tip of right hand needle, from right to left, into the back loops of both of the next 2 sts on the left hand needle. Wrap yarn as you usually would to knit and knit the 2 sts together - 1 st decreased.
p2tog tbl (purl 2 together through the back loops): Insert tip of right hand needle, from left to right, into the back loops of both of the next 2 sts on the left hand needle. Wrap yarn as you usually would to purl and purl the 2 sts together - 1 st decreased.
kfb (knit into front and then back)
An increase worked as follows:
1. Knit the next st through the front loop, but do not remove the st from your left hand needle.
2. Knit the same st once more, this time inserting your needle through the back loop of the st. You will have created 2 loops (sts) on your right hand needle.
3. Drop the st from your left hand needle - you have increased 1 st.
skp Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over knit - 1 st decreased.
sk2p Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over - 2 sts decreased.
sp2p Slip 1 as if to purl, purl next 2 sts together through back loops, pass slipped stitch over - 2 sts decreased. Note: If you prefer, sp2p may be worked by slipping 1 as if to purl, purling next 2 sts tog, then passing slipped st over.
Yo (yarn over)
An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. To yarn over between 2 purl sts, take the yarn over the right needle to the back, then bring the yarn between the needles to the front. To yarn over between 2 knit sts, bring the yarn between the needles to the front, then over the right needle to the back.
2. It's important to remember that a yarn over is simply a strand of yarn, wrapped around your needle. A yarn over does NOT involve an existing stitch!

NOTES:

1. Circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
2. Fronts are worked in rib pattern with eyelets. The eyelets are created with yarn overs and are worked in the center of each p3 rib, on every 6th row.
3. Eyelet rows are worked on the RS of the Right Front and the WS of the Left Front.
4. The lower edge of each Front is shaped by casting on sts.
5. Each Front can be worked following the written instructions or reading the charts. Read RS rows from right to left, and read WS rows from left to right.
6. Work Back and Sleeves following written instructions.
7. 'Work even' in the pattern means to continue without increasing or decreasing the sts.

FINISHING
Sew shoulder and side seams. Sew Sleeve seams. Sew in Sleeves.

Note:To work the Trim, you will need to pick up sts evenly spaced along an edge. To pick up sts evenly, divide the edge along which you'll be picking up into segments, first in half, then into quarters, etc. Use pins, removable st markers, or scraps of yarn to mark the segments. Next, divide the number of sts you will pick up (as evenly as possible) into the segments.

Using the size XS/S as an example, divide the cast-on edge of the Left Front into quarters. Then divide the 109 sts to be picked up by 4 - you will need to pick 27 sts across 3 segments and 28 sts across the 4th segment.

Lower Edge Trim
From RS, pick up and knit 109 (119, 129) sts evenly spaced across cast-on edge of Left Front, 113 (133, 153) sts evenly spaced across cast-on edge of Back and 109 (119, 129) sts evenly spaced across cast-on edge of Right Front - 331 (371, 411) sts at the end of this row.
Knit 4 rows.
Bind off.

Front and Neck Trim
From RS, pick up and knit 55 (60, 65) sts evenly spaced along Right Front edge, 35 (36, 37) sts evenly spaced across Back neck and 55 (60, 65) sts evenly spaced along Left Front edge - 145 (156, 167) sts at the end of this row.
Knit 2 rows.
Bind off.
Weave in ends.

Eyelet Swing Cardi Reviewed by Sylvia Tearle on 2012-08-23 *****
Have just completed this cardi and it's delightful and looks just like the photo. However I feel there are a number of errors in the pattern instructions which kept me on my toes making sure it worked out correctly. Also I didn't care to pick up so many stitches at the end so crocheted an edge as I also felt the two knit rows in the pattern would curl and I wanted to give the back particularly a bit of extra weight. Thanks Lion Brand for something different to knit.
