GAUGE:
25 sts + 32 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) using smaller needle(s). 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:
MB (Make Bobble) 1.

(Knit into front of next st but do not remove the st from needle, yo) twice – 4 sts on right hand needle.

2.

Knit into the same st again and remove the st from needle – 4 sts increased, 5 sts on right hand needle.

3.

Turn the work and purl the 5 sts.

4.

Turn work, skp, k3tog.

5.

Pass the k3tog over the skp and off the needle.

skp Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 1, pass slip stitch over knit stitch – 1 st decreased.

yo (yarn over) An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows: 1.

Bring yarn to front of work, between the needles.

2.

Take yarn to back of work, over the right needle.

This creates the new st.

You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.



PATTERN STITCHES Garter Rib (worked in the rnd over a multiple of 4 sts) Rnd 1: *K2, p2; rep from * around.

Rnd 2: Knit.Rep Rnds 1 and 2 for Garter Rib.



K2, p2 Rib (worked in the rnd over a multiple of 4 sts) Rnd 1: *K2, p2; rep from * to end of rnd.

Rep Rnd 1 for K2, p2 Rib worked in rnds.

NOTES:
1.

Tunic is worked in the rnd beg at the lower edge.

At armhole, piece is divided and extra rows are worked to add length to the back.

Sts for sleeves are cast on and work continues in the rnd.

2.

Tunic is worked in stranded colorwork using 2 colors on each rnd.

When working stranded colorwork, carry colors not in use across the WS of work.

At the end of every other rnd, twist working yarn around unused colors to secure the strands.

3.

Colorwork patterns can be worked from written instructions or by following the charts.

To follow charts when working in the rnd, read all chart rnds from right to left.

4.

When following Chart 1, work the 4 st rep around all sts on each rnd.

When following Chart 2, work the 5 st rep around all sts on each rnd.

5.

A larger needle is used for colorwork sections of the Tunic, to help maintain an even gauge.

6.

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.

7.

When you see '0' in an instruction, this means that for your specific size, there will be no sts to work.

You should just skip to the next part of the instruction.
