The Proud Supporter Dog Sweater

Lion Brand® Bonbons

GAUGE:

19 sts + 20 rnds = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Texture pattern worked in rnds with larger needles and 2 strands of yarn held tog.

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:

pfb (purl into front and back) Purl next st without removing it from left needle, then p through back of same st – 1 st increased.

PATTERN STITCHES
K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds (multiple of 2 sts)
Rnd 1:
*K1, p1; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rep Rnd 1 for K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds.

Texture Pattern worked in rnds (multiple of 4 sts)
Rnd 1:
Purl.
Rnd 2: *(K1, p1, k1) in next st, k3tog; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rnd 3: Purl.
Rnd 4: *K3tog, (k1, p1, k1); rep from * to end of rnd.
Rep Rnds 1-4 for Texture pattern worked in rnds.

Texture Pattern worked in rows (multiple of 4 sts)
Row 1 (RS):
Purl.
Row 2: *P3tog, (p1, k1, p1) in next st; rep from * to end of row.
Row 3: Purl.
Row 4: *(P1, k1, p1) in next st, p3tog; rep from * to end of row.
Rep Rows 1-4 for Texture pattern worked in rows.

NOTES:

1. Sweater is worked in one piece beg at neck.
2. Piece is worked in the rnd to leg openings, then back and underpiece are worked back and forth in rows. When leg openings are complete, underpiece and back are rejoined and worked in the rnd to the back flap. Back flap is worked back and forth in rows.
3. Use yarn colors as desired. Our sample changed colors every 2 rnds.
4. Sweater is worked holding 2 strands of yarn tog throughout.
5. When knitting in the rnd on double pointed needles (dpns), your sts need to be divided fairly evenly among 4 needles. The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns that you are using - this is not a problem! Simply divide your sts as evenly as possible, you will still create a symmetrical 'tube' of knitting.
