Tied 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).

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:

2/2 LC (2 over 2 left cross) Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k2, then k2 from cable needle.
2/2 RC (2 over 2 right cross) Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in back, k2, then k2 from cable needle.
kfb (knit in front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st – 1 st increased.
LT (Left Twist) Knit 2nd st on left needle through the back loop and leave on left needle, knit first skipped st and slip both sts from needle.
RPT (Right Purl Twist) Purl 2nd st on left needle and leave on left needle, purl first skipped st and slip both sts from needle.
skp Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 1, pass slip stitch over knit stitch – 1 st decreased.

PATTERN STITCHES
Left Cable (worked over 8 sts)
Row 1 (RS):
P3, k4, p1.
Row 2: K1, p4, k3.
Row 3: P3, 2/2 LC, p1.
Row 4: K1, p4, k3.
Rep Rows 1-4 for Left Cable.

NOTES:

1. Cardigan is worked in one piece, top down to armholes. At armholes, Body and Sleeves are worked separately to lower edge.
2. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
3. Sleeves are worked in the round on double pointed needles.
4. Left and Right Cables can be worked from written instructions or by following charts. When working from charts, read RS rows from right to left and WS rows from left to right.
5. End with a WS row means that the last row you work should be a WS row, and the next row that you are ready to work will be a RS row.
6. 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.
