Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Lion Brand® Vanna's Glamour®: Moonstone, 5 (5, 6, 7) balls or color of choice
  • Lion Brand® removable stitch markers
  • Lion Brand® large-eyed blunt needle
  • Circular knitting needle size 5 (3.75 cm), 36" (91.5 cm) long

DIRECTIONS:

    • SIZES
    • Curvy Girl 1 (2, 3, 4)
    • Finished Bust 48 (52, 56, 60)" (122 (132, 142, 152.5) cm)
    • Finished Back Length 25-1/2 (26, 26-1/2, 27)" (65 (66, 67.5, 68.5) cm)
    • Finished Front Length 24-1/2 (25, 25-1/2, 26)" (62 (63.5, 65, 66) 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 the appropriate size before beginning.

    • GAUGE
    • 17 sts + 20 rows = about 4" (10 cm) in Drop St pattern.
    • BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

    • NOTES
    • Pullover is made in 2 pieces: Back and Front.
    • Back and Front are both worked from the top down in an easy Drop st pattern with Garter st (k every row) edges. The sleeves are worked as part of the Back and Front.
    • Pullover is made with side slits, and a slightly longer Back than Front.
    • To print the patterns, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above).
    • This pattern includes some knitter’s lingo. When the pattern says to ‘work even’ this means that you continue in the specified st or pattern and keep the number of sts the same – without increasing or decreasing. When ‘– 12 sts’ appears at the end of a sentence, this is the number of sts there will be after working that row.
    • Our pattern includes diagrams to help you visualize how the Pullover is put together. Take the time to review the diagrams before knitting.
    • 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.

    • PATTERN STITCH
    • Drop Stitch (worked over any number of sts)
    • Row 1 (RS): K1, *k the next st, wrapping yarn around needle 4 times before drawing all of the wraps through the st; rep from * to last st, k1.
    • Row 2: K1, *k the next st, dropping the 3 extra wraps from the needle; rep from * to last st, k1.
    • Rows 3-6: Knit.
    • Rep Rows 1-6 for Drop st pattern.
