Additional Materials
Circular knitting needle size 5 (3.75 mm), 16 in. (40 cm) long Circular knitting needle size 5 (3.75 mm), 29 in. (73.5 cm) long Circular knitting needle size 6 (4.25 mm), 29 in. (73.5 cm) long Circular knitting needle size 9 (5.5 mm), 29 in. (73.5 cm) long
GAUGE:
9 1/2 sts + 13 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) on size 15 (10 mm) needle with 1 strand each of A, B, C, D, E, F, and G held tog. 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 into front and then back) An increase worked as follows:
1.

Knit the next st through the front loop, but do not remove the st from your left hand needle.


2.

Knit the same st once more, this time inserting your needle through the back loop of the st.

You will have created 2 loops (sts) on your right hand needle.
3.

Drop the st from your left hand needle - you have increased 1 st.

NOTES:
1. Sleeves are worked back and forth in rows on circular needle as if working on straight needles, beginning at wrist edge and working up to underarm.

Sweater body is worked in the rnd from lower edge up to underarm, then Sleeves are added to the Body sts to work yoke (the portion of the Pullover above the Sleeves).
2. Yarn combinations and needle sizes change throughout the Pullover, so gauge will vary throughout the piece.
3. Lower edges of Pullover and Sleeves are designed to roll softly.
4. The stitch pattern in the yoke has been modified for larger sizes and will vary slightly from that shown in the photograph.

(15 cm) from beg, end with a WS row.

Note: End with a WS row means that the last row you work should be a WS (purl) row, so that you are ready to work a RS row for your next row.
Cut C.
Continue with 1 strand each of A, B, D, E, F, and G held tog.
Next Row (Increase Row, RS): K1, kfb, k to last 2 sts, kfb, k1 - 28 (31, 34) sts at the end of this row.
