Cable Peplum Pullover

Lion Brand® Kitchen Cotton

GAUGE:

22 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in K2, p2 rib.

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.

1. Pullover is worked in 4 pieces, Back, Front, and 2 Sleeves.
2. The Front and Back are worked by following charts, with additional written instructions for specific rows.
3. When working from charts, read RS rows from right to left and WS rows from left to right.
4. The longer circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth in rows on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
5. The neckband is worked in the round from sts picked up around the neck using the shorter circular needle.
6. 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.

Cable Peplum Pullover Reviewed by Kathryn Borbacs on 2014-07-06 **
Frustrating because there is an error in row 18 for the front and back charts, all sizes. See photo. You can see the error in the cable to the left and right of the center.
