Inishturk Pullover

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

12 sts + 14 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern using larger 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.

NOTES:

1. Pullover is worked in 4 pieces, Back, Front and 2 Sleeves.
2. All pieces are worked with cable and stitch patterns. The number of stitches worked in the various patterns change for each size – if you see '0' as the number of stitches or repeats, that means that for the specific size you are making you will not need to work any stitches.
3. Stitches are picked up around the neck, then neckband is worked in the rnd.
4. When you see '– 12 sts' in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row.
