Finished Chest: 36 (44, 53) in. (91.5 (112, 134.5) cm)

Finished Length: 28 (28 1/2, 29 1/2) in. (71 (72.5, 75) cm)

 

Abbreviations:

beg = begin(s)(ning)

k = knit

k2tog = knit 2 together

p = purl

p2tog = purl 2 together

rem = remain(s)(ing)

rep = repeat(s)(ing)

RS = right side

St st = Stockinette stitch

st(s) = stitch(es)

Gauge: 9 1/2 sts = 5 in. (12.5 cm) + 10 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with larger needles.

12 sts = about 5 in. (12.5 cm) in Center Cable pattern.

BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

 

Stitch Explanation:

 

5/5 LC (5 over 5 left cross)

Slip 5 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k5, then k5 from cable needle.

kfb (knit in front and back)

Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st - 1 st increased.

M1P (make 1 st as if to purl)

An increase worked by lifting the horizontal strand lying between the needles and placing it onto the left needle. Purl this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.

PATTERN STITCH

K1, p1 Rib (worked over an odd number of sts)

Row 1 (RS): K1, *p1, k1; rep from * to end of row.

Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts. Rep Row 2 for K1, p1 Rib.

 

Notes:

  1. Pullover is worked in 4 pieces: Back, Front and 2 Sleeves.

I am LOVING the wonderfully warm, cuddly look of this Cozy Textured Pullover! Has anyone out there knitted it yet? Ive been knitting for years and cant wait to add this lovely sweater to my winter wardrobe but have never knitted a cable and would love to know how if its difficult to do before I get started.

looking forward to trying this sweater like the look and that colour - shall see how the sleeve cap works out

PLEASE share the complete directions for the sleeve cap. Many of us don't want to "invent" the rest. Please help!!

Would someone assist with the additional directions to finish the sleeve cap on the cozy textured pullover?thank you.

Would anyone be willing to share the correct sleeve cap instructions. I'm not a very experienced knitter and don't trust myself to figure it out

Please help? What does KFB and 5/5 LC mean?

Hi denmilligan 5874957, KFB = knit in front and back of stitch; 5/5 LC = 5/5 Left Cross in reference to the cable pattern. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

KFB MEANS THAT YOU KNIT FRONT AND BACK IN SAME STITCH

Why then does someone not fix the pattern?? This annoys me, I sent a pattern to knit for me and spent tons on the yarn and the pattern was wrong. Contact was made and company just shrugged. Bad 8(

Its not up to anyone on this web site, they don't own any of the patterns, if there are corrections to be made it's up to Lion Brand to make them, not this site. Furthermore, it is only the opinion of one person on here that the sleeve cap is in error, its entirely possible it was in fact her error and not the pattern at all.

The sweater is beautiful. I am using Paton's Melody in soft white...I call it my poodle sweater. One problem with the pattern: the sleeve cap directions do not finish the cap. The directions as printed stop at the cap having 20 stitches and much shorter than it should be. I had to add rows and decreases to make the correct shape for a sleeve cap to fit the front and back sleeve shaping. That's the only point that prevents me from rating this pattern as AWESOME. I'm sewing it together now and can hardly wait to snuggle up in it!

I finished this sweater and will make another in a different color. It works up quickly and is the ONLY sweater I have (among many) that really keeps me warm. I would prefer if someone would finish the directions for the sleeve cap, though. The directions only go up 1/2 way on the cap and I had to figure out how to finish the cap to fit the armholes. I made it in white and call it my Poodle Sweater. If you are always cold, you'll love this sweater.

would you be willing to share the correct instructions for the cap.

Were "they" willing to share the correction? If so, would you mind sending it to me? Thank you!
