GAUGE:
15 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Pattern sts. 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:
Note: In front (or in back) refers to the side of the work facing you.

3/3 LC (3 over 3 left cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k3, then k3 from cable needle.

3/3 RC (3 over 3 right cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in back, k3, then k3 from cable needle.

LT (Left Twist) Knit the 2nd st on left needle through the back loop and leave on left needle.

Then knit both the first and 2nd sts together through the back loop.

M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal strand lying between needles and placing it onto the left needle.

Work this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.

RT (Right Twist) K2tog and leave on left needle, then with right needle, go between the 2 sts and k the first st again.

NOTES:
1.

Cardigan is made in 5 pieces: Back, Left Front, Right Front, and 2 Sleeves.

2.

Hood is worked directly onto Cardigan.

3.

When you see 'as established' in the instructions, this means to continue in the current pattern st.

4.

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.

5.

The Pattern st is a 4 row repeat, and Cables A and B are each 16 row repeats.

Before beginning, set up a system for keeping track of your rows! 6.

When working the Sleeves, you will be increasing sts within the Pattern st.

Study your pattern rows on the Back, so that you are able to 'read' your work.

This is the best way to incorporate the added sts into the Pattern st.

7.

Buttonholes are not worked on the front of the Cardigan, instead, the spaces created by the twist sts are used as buttonholes.
