One-Stitch Adult Cardigan

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

16 sts x 32 rows (16 ridges) = 4 in.[10 cm] in garter st. 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.

One-Stitch Adult Cardigan Reviewed by Sandy Moyer on 2009-10-16 *****
This was a very easy and fun pattern! It is a really warm sweater. The only thing that I'm not crazy about is that the way this sweater is made, with the sleeves being knit right into the body, you end up with a seam going down both arms from beneath and above. Other than that, it's a beautiful sweater that I might make again in another color!
