Cozy Colorblock Pullover And Hat

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

GAUGE:

16 sts + 26 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in 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.
s2kp Slip next 2 sts as if to knit them tog, knit 1, pass the 2 slipped sts up and over the knit st and off the right needle – 2 sts decreased.
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.

PATTERN STITCHES
K1, p1 Rib (multiple of 2 sts)
Row 1:
*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.

K1, p1 Rib (multiple of 2 sts + 1)
Row 1:
K1, *p1, k1; rep from * to end of row.
Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Rep Row 2 for K1, p1 Rib.

NOTES:

1. Pullover is worked in 4 pieces: Back, Front, and 2 Sleeves. Each piece is worked in a textured pattern stitch, changing color to form sections of striping. Twist yarns on WS when you change colors to prevent holes where colors meet.
2. Neck edging is worked in rnds using double pointed needles (dpns). When knitting in the round on double pointed needles (dpns), your sts need to be divided fairly evenly onto the needles. If you are working with a set of 4 dpn, your sts should be divided among 3 needles. If you are working with a set of 5 dpn, your sts should be divided 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.
3. Hat is worked back and forth in rows beg at lower edge. Side edges are sewn together to form Hat.
