Classic Cachet Pullover

Lion Brand® Homespun®


14 sts + 20 rows = 4 in. [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.

Classic Cachet Pullover Reviewed by Eliz J on 2014-01-29 *****
I could not be more satisfied with this sweater! This is my first time knitting a sweater and I found the directions very easy to follow. Perfect pattern for an easy to knit sweater that fits very comfortably.I will be making more of these in the future.
