GAUGE:
9 sts + 12 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with larger needles. 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:
skp Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 1, pass slip stitch over knit stitch – 1 st decreased.

PATTERN STITCHES K1, p1 Rib (multiple of 2 sts + 1) Row 1 (RS): K1, *p1, k1; rep from * to end of row.

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

Rep Row 2 for K1, p1 Rib.

NOTES:
1.

Pullover is worked in 4 pieces, Back, Front, and 2 Sleeves.

2.

Collar is worked in the round on circular needle.

3.

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.

4.

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.
