Eyelet Yoke Cardigan

Lion Brand® Cotton-Ease®

GAUGE:

17 sts + 24 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.

Eyelet Yoke Cardigan Reviewed by Eszter Kato on 2013-02-08 *****
This is such a nice and easy pattern! Found some left-over yarn in my basket and got started on it - the cardigan was ready at the third sitting and has gone to its proud owner (a friend's little daughter) since. I added two more buttons at the length of the yoke. Will surely make some more of it, perhaps by adding more colours. Thanks again!
