Downtown Baby Pullover And Hat

Lion Brand® Modern Baby®

GAUGE:

22 sts + 32 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

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. Pullover is worked in 4 pieces: Back, Front and 2 Sleeves.
2. Hat is worked back and forth in rows beg at lower edge. Crown (top of Hat) is shaped and side edges are sewn tog to complete Hat.
3. Pullover and Hat are worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS), so edges will roll naturally to the RS.
4. Color is changed every 4 rows when working Hat and Front and Back of Pullover. Do not cut yarn between stripes, instead carry unused color along side edge of piece.
5. Sts for Pullover neckband are picked up around neck and worked in St st.
