Colorful Cardigan And Hat

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice® - Vanna's Palettes

GAUGE:

16 sts + 22 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) over Stripe pattern.

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:

M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal strand lying between needles and placing it onto the left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop – 1 st increased.
ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog – 1 st decreased.

NOTES:

1. Cardigan is worked in one piece beg at lower edge. Piece is divided at armholes then Fronts and Back are worked separately.
2. Right and Left Sleeves are worked separately.
3. Top section of Hat is worked back and forth in rows. Resulting rectangle is folded and side edges seamed. Lower ribbing is worked in rnds around lower edge of Hat.
4. Color A is always worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS). All other colors are worked in Garter st (k every row).
5. When you see 'work even' in the instructions, this means to continue on in the pattern st you have established without changing the st count by increasing, decreasing, or binding off.
