lion brand® wool-ease® thick & quick® bonus bundle milton harbor knit cardigan

Step 1
Project Note: The number of Skeins needed to complete this project is 4 - Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® Bonus Bundle Yarn – Urban Camo
 
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: S/M (L, 1X/2X)
   -  Finished Bust: About 44½" (50", 57"), (113 cm (127 cm, 145 cm)).
   -  Finished Length: About 22" (23", 24"), (56 cm (58.5 cm, 61 cm)).
 
Note: Pattern is written for smallest size with changes for larger sizes in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning.

GAUGE: 9 sts + 12 rows = about 4" (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). Please be sure to check your gauge.
 
STITCH EXPLANATIONS:
M1 = Make 1
   -  An increase worked by lifting the horizontal strand lying between needles and placing it onto the left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop – 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 together – 1 st decreased.
 

NOTES:
1. Cardigan is worked in 3 separate pieces: body and 2 sleeves.
2. Cardigan body is worked in one piece to the underarms, then divided.
3. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth in rows on the circular needle as if working on straight needles.
4. When the pattern tells you to slip a st, slip as if to knit or as if to purl, whichever look you prefer.
5. 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.
