GAUGE

7 pat­tern reps = 41/2 inches; 13 pat­tern rows = 41/2 inches Take time to check gauge.

PAT­TERN NOTES

Sweater is worked from bot­tom hem to arm­holes, where it is di­vided and each sec­tion is worked sep­a­rately. Sweater be­gins by mak­ing two rec­tan­gles in Wat­tle Stitch. Then 4 sec­tions of Rib­bing are made and joined as you go to the Wat­tle Stitch rec­tan­gles. Pieces are held to­gether with stitch mark­ers while work­ing first round of Wat­tle Stitch at the waist of Sweater. Work con­tin­ues in rounds to arm­holes. From there, work pro­gresses in rows to neck­line. Ad­di­tional sec­tions of Rib­bing are made and joined as you go to the top edge of Sweater Body. Sleeves are made sep­a­rately, work­ing in rounds to Sleeve Cap. To change col­ors, lo­cate the stitch or chain space where the first sin­gle cro­chet of the row/ round should be placed, slip stitch in that stitch or chain space, chain 1 and be­gin with the first sin­gle cro­chet, then con­tinue the row/ round as usual. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less oth­er­wise stated.
