Cozy Textured Pullover

Lion Brand« Homespun® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

9 1/2 sts = 5 in. (12.5 cm) + 10 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with larger needles.
12 sts = about 5 in. (12.5 cm) in Center Cable pattern.

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:

5/5 LC (5 over 5 left cross) Slip 5 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k5, then k5 from cable needle.
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.
M1P (make 1 st as if to purl) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal strand lying between the needles and placing it onto the left needle. Purl this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.

Cozy Textured Pullover Reviewed by Nancy Saunders on 2014-04-03 ****
I made this using the pearl color. It is a wonderful color. I read all of the reviews and the correction. I agree with the reviewer who said you have to start the front neckline earlier. I did mine according to the corrections and I ended up with a huge turtleneck. I took out the stitches and used fewer and ended up with a modified turtleneck. It is OK but not anything close to the neckline in the picture. I still love my sweater for the softness, color, and style.
