Additional Materials
Circular needle size 6 (4.25 mm) 29 in. (73.5 cm) long
GAUGE:
23 sts and 27 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with Eyelet Panel 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
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
kfb (knit in front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st - 1 st increased.

ssk (slip, slip, knit)Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog - 1 st decreased.

NOTES:
1.

The neckband is worked back and forth in rows on circular needle.

When neckband has been completed, final raglan seam, including neckband, is sewn.
