Garter Stripe Jacket Pattern

$7.00

If working with a long-color gradient on two matching pieces (Front, Sleeves) begin at the same point so the color changes in the matching pieces are identical.  If doing this, work the Fronts, then start the Back and a few rows in begin the Sleeves.  This way you can use the two balls simultaneously for the sleeves, then return to the Back.

The sample shown was worked using a single ball of long color gradient used as D, cut and restarted at each contrasting stripe in the Sleeves.

Stitches & Special Techniques

Provisional Cast On
This is a term used to describe a Cast On which can be easily removed later, leaving a row of live stitches to be slipped onto a needle and worked.  One favorite method is to crochet a chain in waste yarn with at least 10 more sts than you would like to cast on.  Tie off the end of the chain, placing a knot in the tail.  Slip your knitting needle into the bump at the back of each chain, creating a “stitch” on the needle.  When desired, the chain can be loosened and pulled off at the knotted end.

VDD – Vertical Double Decrease
Sl 2 sts as if to work k2 tog-R, k1, pass slipped sts over (decrease of 2 sts)
