The Sports Nut Dog Sweater

Lion Brand® Hometown USA®

GAUGE:

9 sts + 12 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in rnds (k every rnd).

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:

PATTERN STITCHES
K1, p1 Rib worked in rows (worked over an even number of sts)
Row 1:
*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 worked in rows.

K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds (worked over an even number of sts)
Rnd 1:
*K1, p1; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rep Rnd 1 for K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds.

NOTES:

1. Sweater is worked in one piece, beg at lower back, changing color following Stripe Sequence.
2. Piece is worked in both rows and rnds.
3. When knitting in the round on double pointed needles (dpns), your sts need to be divided fairly evenly onto the needles. The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns that you are using – this is not a problem! Simply divide your sts as evenly as possible, you will still create a symmetrical 'tube' of knitting.



STRIPE SEQUENCE
Work *6 rows/rnds with A, 3 rows/rnds with B; rep from * for Stripe Sequence.

SWEATER
With straight needles and A, cast on 22 (26) sts.
Lower Ribbing
With A, work in K1, p1 Rib worked in rows for 6 rows.
Body
Change to B.
Beg with a RS row, work in St st worked in rows (k on RS, p on WS) and continue to change color following Stripe Sequence for 3 (7) rows.
At end of last row, cast on 12 (14) sts.
Shape Underpiece
Notes:

1. Piece is now worked in rnds.
2. Continue to change color following Stripe Sequence.
With RS facing, divide sts onto 4 needles. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on the left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts – 34 (40) sts.
Rnds 1-7: K22 (26), *k1, p1; rep from * to end of rnd.
Knit 3 (6) rnds.
Divide for Leg Openings
Next Rnd:
K22 (26) sts for back, place next 12 (14) sts on a holder for underpiece.
Back
Change back to straight needles and work in St st worked rows across rem 22 (26) sts for 9 (13) rows, then place these sts on a st holder.
Underpiece
Return the 12 (14) sts for underpiece to straight needles, ready to work a RS row.
