Electric Avenue Pullover

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

17 sts + 19 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) 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:

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.
skp Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 1, pass slip stitch over knit stitch - 1 st decreased.
ssp (slip, slip, purl) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; pass them back to left needle; purl them together through back loops - 1 st decreased.

PATTERN STITCHES
K1, p1 Rib worked in rows (worked over a multiple of 2 sts + 1 additional st)
Row 1 (RS):
*K1, p1; rep from * to last st, k1.
Row 2: *P1, k1; rep from * to last st, p1. Rep Rows 1-2 for K1, p1 Rib worked in rows.
K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds (worked over a multiple of 2 sts)
Rnd 1:
*K1, p1; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rep Rnd 1 for K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds.

NOTES:

1. Pullover is worked in 4 pieces, Back and Front and 2 Sleeves.
2. Pullover is worked in stranded colorwork, carrying color not in use across WS of work. Smaller areas of color can be worked in duplicate st.
3. Charts are worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS). When working from charts, read RS rows from right to left and WS rows from left to right.
4. Chart C begins on the WS the first time it is used, and on the RS the second time it's used.
5. When you see '- 12 sts' in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row.
