Image of Asymmetric Ribbed Sweater

This sweater is great for those who like eccentric styles; its off-centered neckline and a left batwing sleeve will have you taking a closer look.

Asymmetric Ribbed Sweater

Lion Brand Heartland

GAUGE:

17 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

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 the same st – 1 st increased.

Asymmetric Ribbed Sweater Reviewed by Rebecca Barker on 2014-01-07 ***
No I have not made this sweater yet...but love the look, the light wt # 4 yarn, vert. lines.

Could we please have this item in a smaller bust size and not the one aslymmetric bat wing sleeve?
