Beginner's One-Button Jacket

Lion Brand® Lion® Bouclé

GAUGE:

10 sts + 20 rows = 4" (10 cm) in garter st (k every row). 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. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Downloadable Pattern: Beginner's One-Button Jacket: Beginner Knit Pattern Reviewed by Susan on 2009-06-22 ****
This sweater fits great in the body, but the sleeves are ginormous. I ripped them out and re-knit them at least 3 inches narrower, and omitted the cuffs (too thick). Otherwise, I love it!
