Hooded Sweatshirt

Lion Brand® Cotton Thick & Quick

GAUGE:

9 sts + 12 rows = 4" in St st with size 11 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

3-needle bind off: *With right sides together, hold two needles together, with third needle knit 2 stitches together, one st from front and one st from back needle; rep from * once, then pass stitch worked first over second as to bind off. Rep this procedure until seam is completed. Fasten off.

Hooded Sweatshirt Reviewed by Kristina Zoller on 2009-01-06 ****
My son picked this out for his own sweater and he loves it! I did it in black with a white stripe and it really does look cool. I found it to be very quick--perfect for those piling up projects! The hood is too small--impossible to do the crossover without strangling the unfortunate person. I had to doctor that. What I need is to figure out how to do this pattern without the hood....I'll get back to you.
