On this sampler fisherman's sweater, horizontal sweater patterns cover the body and part of the sleeves. If you would like to simplify the design, work a large section of stockinette stitch above the ribbing and below the armholes and use only horizontal stripes on the yoke, or work the entire body and the sleeves in an easy check pattern. * Texture stitches: horizontal bands . * Lower body worked in the round and upper body sections worked back and forth. * Shallow square neckline, finished with picked-up ribbing, plus optional eyelets and drawstring. * Sleeves picked up at armholes and knitted down to ribbed cuffs. GAUGE Make a gauge swatch in each of the pat- tern stitches you have chosen. Measure your favorite sweater or use standardized size charts (www.yarnstandards. com/sizing.html) to determine the basic dimensions for your sweater. Write the measurements on the visual plan on page 5 and the sweater-planning worksheet on page 6.
