Tablet (iPad) Fair Isle Tech Vest

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

18 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) and Fair Isle pattern 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:

sk2p (slip-k2tog-pass slipped st over)
A double decrease worked as follows:
1. Insert right needle as if to knit, and slip the next 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 - you have decreased 2 sts.
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.

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

NOTES:

1. Vest is worked in 2 pieces, Back and Front.
2. When working Fair Isle color pattern, carry colors not in use across WS of piece.
3. Fair Isle pattern is worked by following the chart. When following the chart, work from right to left on RS rows and from left to right on WS rows.
4. The front neck is worked with 2 separate strands of yarn. Unwind about 3 yd (3 m) of each yarn before beginning to use while working the front neck.
5. When you see 'work even' in the instructions, this means to continue on without changing the st count by increasing, decreasing, or binding off.
