Galway Elongated Cardigan

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease« Thick & Quick«

GAUGE:

10 sts + 14 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (K on RS, p on WS) with larger needles.
12 sts + 14 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Twist Cable and rev St st (P on RS, k on WS) patterns with 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.

SPECIAL TECHNIQUES
Grafting

Holding the 2 needles parallel with WS of fabric together, thread a large-eyed blunt needle with one of the yarn ends and work as follows:
1. Insert needle as if to purl into first st on front piece. Insert needle as if to knit into first st on back piece. Pull yarn through, leaving sts on needles.
2. Insert needle as if to knit through first st on front needle and let the st drop from needle.
3. Insert needle into 2nd st on front needle as if to purl and pull the yarn through, leaving st on the needle.
4. Insert needle into first st on back needle as if to purl and let it drop from the needle.
5. Insert needle as if to knit through 2nd st on back needle and pull the yarn through, leaving st on needle. Rep steps 2-5 until all sts are gone. When finished, adjust tension as necessary. Weave in ends.
w&t (wrap and turn)
W&t is a technique used to ensure that a small hole doesn't form at the end of a short row. How you work a w&t depends on whether you are doing a KNIT stitch or a PURL st. Follow the specific instructions below to work a w&tK (a wrap and turn for a KNIT st) or a w&tP (wrap and turn for a PURL st).

NOTES:

1. Cardigan is worked in 5 pieces, Back, 2 Fronts, and 2 Sleeves.
2. Collar is shaped by working an Inner and an Outer Collar.
3. Left, Right and Figure 8 Cables can be worked from written instructions or from charts. When working from charts, read RS rows from right to left and WS rows from left to right.
4. Note that the Figure 8 cable is created from 2 sts of Twist Cable, increasing the number of sts from 2 sts to 4 sts and then back to 2 sts when 12 rows of Figure 8 Cable have been worked. The Twist Cable continues on the rem 2 sts.
5. 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.
