Lion Brand® Trellis®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 20 rows = 4 inches [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:

ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and k them tog.

M1 (make 1 st) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between the needles and placing it onto the left needle. Work this new stitch through the back loop.

Kimono Reviewed by Veronica Stevans on 2009-09-20 *****
This was not only easy to knit but every time I've worn it I get positive comments...from strangers as well as friends. It doesn;t wrinkle so it's perfect for travel and it dresses up whatever you're wearing.
