Bias Knit Hooded Jacket

Lion Brand® Jamie®

GAUGE:

20 sts + 40 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row).

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:

kfb (knit in front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st – 1 st increased.

2. The Back and Sleeves are worked beg at lower edge.

4. Hood is worked diagonally, beg at peak of Hood.
5. Front edging is worked with a circular needle to accommodate the large number of sts.

Bias Knit Hooded Jacket Reviewed by Sharon Amabile on 2014-05-05 ****
I made two sweaters for two children in my family who live far away from me. This meant I had to trust the pattern totally without holding pieces up to the child to get an idea of how the finished product would fit. Each sweater was in a different size. I liked the pattern and the bit of challenge it presented. As I completed the knitting and put the pieces together, they looked really good. I took them to the children and the body fit beautifully. Having said that, the hood fit as if it was made for a child with no neck. It just does not work. At first I said I would just tinker with the pattern and redo it, but I don't have to skill at this point to tackle that demand.
