'Easy-to-Imagine' Sweater

Lion Brand® Imagine (Old)


10 sts and 14 rows = 4" [10 cm] square in Reverse St st HOLDING 2 STRANDS OF YARN TOGETHER THROUGHOUT. 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

With 2 strands of yarn held together, cast on 62 sts. Work in Reverse St st (p on RS, k on WS) until piece meas 22" from beg.
