Spiral Sweater

Lion Brand« Fishermen's Wool®

GAUGE:

16 sts and 16 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in sc using smaller hook.

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:

rev sc (reverse single crochet) Single crochet worked from left to right (right to left, if left-handed). Insert hook into next stitch to the right (left), under loop on hook, and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all loops on hook.

NOTES:

1. Sweater is worked in one piece beg at center. Directions are provided for how to make the Sweater larger. Note that the Sweater is a circle, so as you increase the width, the length will also increase.
2. All rounds are worked in continuous rounds with the RS always facing, and not joined at the end of each round.
3. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. Fasten off old color.
4. 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.


 

 

STRIPE SEQUENCE: Work 7 in. (18 cm) with A, 4 in. (10 cm) with C, 6 in. (15 cm) with B, and 2 in. (5 cm) with C.
