Rebecca - crossways worked sweater



Pattern: Rebecca Magazine #26, Pattern #37 - Crossways worked Roll Neck Sweater
Yarn used: Lion Brand Kool Wool - Charcoal

Details: Knit up fast on size 13 needles. I didn't quite get gauge, but the design is so simple, I was able to fit it easily. I made the neck wider so that the waist would fit better. Instead of a turtleneck, I bound off early. This is a pretty flattering sweater for a chunky yarn.

At last! I've been looking all day for a sweater pattern to use a big stash of Lamb's Pride bulky yarn and I love this one! Is there any way you could tell me the gauge of the pattern so I can see if this yarn will work (before I work on seeing if I can track down an old issue of Rebecca)? Thanks much!

The yarn suggested is GGH - SIERRA. The gauge mentioned in the pattern is in pattern, not stockinette. I looked up Sierra's suggested gauge and I think it was 3.5st/inch - which is what Lion Brand Kool Wool is.
