Additional Materials
Circular knitting needle size 9 (5.5 mm), 24 in. (61 cm) long
GAUGE:
16 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). 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.



PATTERN STITCHES K2, p2 Rib (multiple of 4 sts + 2) Row 1: K2, *p2, k2; rep from * to end of row.

Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.Rep Row 2 for K2, p2 Rib.

NOTES:
1.

Pullover is worked in 6 pieces, Front and Back, 2 Sleeves and 2 Lower Panels.

2.

A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts.

3.

Flowers are worked in duplicate st, following the chart, onto completed Lower Panels.

4.

End with a WS row means that the last row you work should be a WS row, and the next row that you are ready to work will be a RS row.

5.

When you see '– 12 sts' in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row.
