FREE UNIQUE ROW CHECKER
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. 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. The wonderful heathered Hanf Natur yarn creates a rich looking finish and a sporty lightweight garment that can be worn year round.
Pattern and Row Checker
This pattern includes a list of all abbreviations, glossary of terms, and a crisp schematic with dimensions for proper blocking. It also comes with my unique Row Checker, complimentary. A tool you can use to help keep track of your stitch count, row number, increases, and decreases. Throughout the pattern you'll find indicators of when to refer to your Row Checker.
