Shaped Shoulder Pullover

Lion Brand® Superwash Merino Cashmere

GAUGE:

18 sts + 33 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over Interrupted Rib 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

k1b (knit 1 in row below) Insert tip of right needle through center of st 1 row below next st on left needle and knit the st, slipping the st above off the needle.
sk2p (slip-k2tog-pass slipped st over)
A double decrease worked as follows:
1. Insert right needle into the next stitch as if to knit, then slip the st from the left needle to the right needle.
2. Knit the next 2 sts together.
3. With tip of left needle, lift the slipped st (the 2nd st on right needle) up and over the k2tog (first st on right needle) and off the needle - 2 sts decreased.
M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.

PATTERN STITCHES
K1, p1 Rib (worked over an odd number of sts)
Row 1 (RS):
P1, *k1, p1; rep from * to end of row.
Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Rep Row 2 for K1, p1 Rib.

Interrupted Rib (worked over an even number of sts)
Row 1 (RS):
P1, *k1b, p1; rep from * to last st, p1.
Rows 2-4: Rep Row 1.
Rows 5 and 6: P1, *k1, p1; rep from * to last st, p1.
Rep Rows 1-6 for Interrupted Rib.

NOTES:

1. Pullover is made from 4 pieces: Back, Front, and 2 Sleeves.
2. Back, Front, and Sleeves are worked separately, back and forth in rows on straight needles, from lower edge up to neck edge beginning in K1, p1 Rib, then changing to the Interrupted Rib pattern.
3. Keep careful track of which row of the pattern st you are working on. It is helpful to take time to study your sts and to practice 'reading' your work before you begin to work shaping into the pattern sts.
4. The neckband is worked in rounds on a circular needle.

Shape Neck
Note:
The neck is shaped by slipping the center front sts onto a holder, then decreasing 1 st on each side of the neck as you continue working. A different number of sts remain for each side of the neck. This was done so that you have an odd number of sts over which to work the neckband.
