Additional Materials

GAUGE:
22 sts + 28 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with larger needles. 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:
M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle.

Knit this new stitch through the back loop - 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.

Pullover is worked in 4 separate pieces; a Back, a Front, and 2 Sleeves.

All pieces begin at the lower edge, then are worked up to the top.

2.

The lion is worked in intarsia colorwork on Front, following the Lion Chart.

To do intarsia colorwork, use a separate ball of yarn for each color section.

3.

When working intarsia colorwork, pick up the strand of the new color from under the strand of the old color to help prevent holes in the knitting.

4.

Charts are worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

To follow the charts, work from right to left on RS rows and from left to right on WS rows 5.

Small details are worked in duplicate and embroidered sts, these are indicated on the chart.

6.

"ROAR" is worked in duplicate st on the Back of the Pullover, following the Roar Chart.

7.

When you see 'work even' in the instructions, this means to continue on in the pattern st you have established without changing the st count by increasing, decreasing, or binding off.

8.

When the instructions indicate a number of sts at the end of a row, this tells you how many sts you will have after working that row.
