Child's Raglan Sleeve Pullover

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Chunky


11 sts and 16 rows = 4" with larger needles over 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


K2tog Knit 2 sts together
Ssk (slip slip knit) Slip the next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, from the tip of the left needle to the tip of the right needle; insert the left needle into the fronts of these 2 sts from the left and k them tog from this position to dec 1 st.

Child's Raglan Sleeve Pullover Reviewed by Susan Block on 2012-03-03 *****
I used this pattern with a bulky cotton yarn to make a sweater for my grandson. Fit very well. This is definitely a pattern I will turn to again and again over the years as he grows. I knit it in the round, and then I went to You Tube to learn how to set in raglan sleeves. Thank you very much for your free patterns!
