Child's hooded knit sweater

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

9 sts = 4 inches. 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 the next 2 sts knitwise, one at a time, from the tip of the left-hand needle to the tip of the right-hand needle; then insert the left-hand needle into the fronts of these 2 sts from the left and knit them tog from this position.

3-needle bind off: Put half of sts on spare needle, place 2 needles holding sts together, right sides together (wrong side will face out). Knit together one st from each needle, *knit together one st from each needle, pass first st worked over second to bind off*; rep from * to * across to last st. Cut working yarn and pull through last st to secure.

PATTERN STITCHES

Twisted Garter St: Knit every st through back loop across row.

St st: Knit on RS, purl on WS rows.

NOTES:

Make Left Front before Right Front to determine buttonhole placement. Each front is worked in one piece to bottom of pocket slant, then divided for pocket shaping and insertion. Pocket lining is joined to side front and worked to height of top of pocket slant. Pocket lining is joined to side front and worked to height of top of pocket slant. Pocket slant shaping is worked on center front sts. At top of pocket slant pieces are rejoined and remainder of each front is worked in one piece.

Child's hooded knit sweater Reviewed by Linda Williams on 2011-12-01 *****
hello, just this week knitted this sweater for my grandson, I had planned on solid green yarn but ran short, so found the Tweed Stripes yarn Woodlands to help me finish the project. The pattern was easy other than the pocket directions, luckily I had made pockets before so just looked up inside pocket directions, from there on no problem at all, this was the first time for a hoodie I found it to be easy, I liked the end results and I may knit the sweater again sometime.
