Granny Raglan Pullover

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

GAUGE:

1 Granny Square for sizes S and M = 11 x 11 in. (28 x 28 cm) square.
1 Granny Square for sizes L and 1X = 12 x 12 in. (30.5 x 30.5 cm) square.
14 sts + 8 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in (3-dc, ch 1) pattern.
16 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) using larger knitting needles.

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:

dc2tog (dc 2 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook - 1 st decreased.
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.
sk2pSlip 1 as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over - 2 sts decreased.

PATTERN STITCHES
K1, p1 Rib worked in rows (over an odd number of sts)
Row 1:
P1, *k1, p1; rep from * to end of row.
Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Rep Row 2 for K1, p1 Rib worked in rows.

4. Back and Sleeves are worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS).
