Here is a project that uses the simplest stitches, garter and stockinette, in an imaginative way to create a pattern that is fun and rewarding.
Complimentary StitchSaver™ Row Checker
Designer Knitting Pattern
Knitted top down starting at the neck, with increases along the four raglan seams, two colors are alternated to create a yoke crafted in very small stripes. The lower body and sleeves are worked in stockinette and finished with narrow bands of garter. Stitches are then picked up around the neck and the seamless hood is worked in garter stripes to match the yoke.
This pattern includes instructions for all sizes, a list of all abbreviations, glossary of terms, and a crisp schematic with dimensions for proper blocking. The pattern also includes my proprietary StitchSaver™ Row Checker. Plus, a link is provided to Knitting Help on my web site.
StitchSaver™ Row Checker
"It is hard to make a mistake with our unique complimentary Row Checker. It helps you keep track of stitch count row-by-row for each section of the pattern, plus all increase and decrease shaping. With check off boxes for each row you can put this project aside for a week, a month or a year and return to the exact spot where you stopped."
For your convenience, we’ve collected definitions for abbreviations, links to tutorial videos that may make knitting your project easier and more fun, as well as guides to techniques and tailoring. Visit the Knitting Help page on our website.
