Crochet Catskills Jacket

Lion Brand« Jiffy® Thick & Quick® - Wool-Ease« Thick & Quick«

GAUGE:

1 Cluster, ch 1 = 11¼2" (3.75 cm) and 1 row = 1" (2.5 cm) in Pattern with Jiffy Thick & Quick. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Note Gauge for Wool-Ease Thick & Quick is a bit tighter (a tiny fraction more st per inch); this is expected and desirable.

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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Base ch/sc: (Note This method creates a base chain and foundation row of sc at the same time: easy, sturdy and elastic, especially useful for necklines and waistlines.) Start with a slip knot, ch 2, insert hook in second ch from hook, draw up a loop, yo, draw through 1 loop, yo and draw through 2 loops – 1 single crochet with its own chain at bottom. Work next stitch under loops of that chain. Insert hook under 2 loops at bottom of the previous stitch, draw up a loop, yo and draw through 1 loop, yo and draw through 2 loops. Repeat for length of foundation.


Cluster Stitch: The Cluster Stitch (CL=cluster) makes a row of sc clusters separated by vertical bars, a lattice resembling woven fabric. It’s basically a sc2tog, lined up over a cluster of previous row. Increases are made by clusters over bars of previous row. Spread the work open if you need to see where the clusters and bars are and where you need to work the next stitches.
CL: (normal cluster, made over CL of previous row) Insert hook in space before next cluster, yo, draw up a loop, insert hook in space after same cluster, yo, draw up a loop, yo and draw through 3 loops on hook.

CLB: (over bar; adds one cluster) Insert hook in space before bar, yo, draw up a loop, insert hook in space after same bar, yo, draw up a loop, yo, draw through 3 loops on hook.
CLC (adds two clusters in a corner): CLB over bar before marked center, ch 1, CL over marked center CL, ch 1, CLB over bar after marked center.

BLOCKING


Jiffy Thick & Quick and Wool-Ease Thick & Quick machine wash, so the wet-blocking method works well. Put the Jacket in your washer and fill with a couple of inches of cool water. Thoroughly wet the Jacket by gently squeezing in the water. Spin briefly until just damp. Spread clean towel(s) on a carpeted floor or on a bed. Lay the damp Jacket on the towel(s) and gently ease it into shape, blocking to size, pinning where necessary. Allow to dry completely.

Crochet Catskills Jacket Reviewed by Bo Hansen on 2012-11-02 *
I've been crocheting for 40+ years and I found these instructions to be very confusing. Too bad. I really liked the jacket.
