GAUGE:
9 sts + 12 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Rev St st (p on RS, k 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:
pfb (purl into front and back) Purl next st without removing it from left needle, then p through back of the same st – 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.

Body of Sweater is worked in one piece.

2.

Sleeves are worked separately, back and forth in rows in Rev St st (p on RS, k on WS) with Garter St (k every row) border.

3.

Body and Sleeves are joined at the armholes and Yoke worked in rnds with raglan shaping up to neck.
