Embellished Pullover

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® - Romance® - Bonbons

GAUGE:

16 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

STITCH EXPLANATION:

kfb (knit into front and then back)
An increase worked as follows:
1. Knit the next st through the front loop, but do not remove the st from your left hand needle.
2. Knit the same st once more, this time inserting your needle through the back loop of the st. You will have created 2 loops (sts) on your right hand needle.
3. Drop the st from your left hand needle - you have increased 1 st.

PATTERN STITCHES
K2, p2 Rib (multiple of 4 sts + 2)
Row 1:
K2, *p2, k2; rep from * to end of row.
Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Rep Row 2 for K2, p2 Rib.

K2, p2 Rib worked in rnds (multiple of 4 sts)
Rnd 1:
*K2, p2; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rep Rnd 1 for K2, p2 Rib worked in rnds.

NOTES:

1. Pullover is worked in 6 pieces, Front and Back, 2 Sleeves and 2 Lower Panels.
2. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts.
3. Flowers are worked in duplicate st, following the chart, onto completed Lower Panels.
4. End with a WS row means that the last row you work should be a WS row, and the next row that you are ready to work will be a RS row.
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.
