GAUGE:
9 sts + 12 rnds = about 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in rnds (k every rnd). 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:
PATTERN STITCHES K1, p1 Rib worked in rows (worked over an even number of sts) Row 1: *K1, p1; rep from * to end of row.

Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.

Rep Row 2 for K1, p1 Rib worked in rows.



K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds (worked over an even number of sts) Rnd 1: *K1, p1; rep from * to end of rnd.

Rep Rnd 1 for K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds.

NOTES:
1.

Sweater is worked back and forth in rows beg at lower edge of back.

Sts are then cast-on for underbody and piece worked in rnds on double pointed needles to bottom of leg openings.

Piece is divided to make leg openings and back and underbody worked separately back and forth in rows to top of leg openings.

Pieces are joined again at top of leg openings and piece worked in rnds to neck.

2.

When knitting in the round on double pointed needles (dpns), your sts need to be divided fairly evenly onto the needles.

If you are working with a set of 5 dpn, your sts should be divided among 4 needles.

The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns that you are using - this is not a problem! Simply divide your sts as evenly as possible, you will still create a symmetrical 'tube' of knitting.
