Tuck Stitch Pullover


Men's Tuck Stitch Pullover Chart

As noted earlier in this tutorial, the shaping formula for this, and all my charted patterns, is given in stitches-rows-times, which is different from the Japanese charted patterns. This is the formula most American designers use for their charted patterns.


Please use the written instructions, found in the Free Patterns section for specific instructions. This is the way I charted the Men's Tuck Stitch Pullover pattern. I always begin with this format, then convert to written patterns when publishing. However, when drafting patterns just for myself, I knit directly from this chart. I keep a clean sheet of paper handy, and make notes to myself while knitting, especially if the shaping is a little complicated
