Knit Dog Fur Coat

Lion Brand® Fun Fur® - Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

14 sts + 18 rows = 4” (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with one strand each MC and CC held tog on larger needles. 18 sts + 24 rows = 4” (10 cm) in St st with one strand CC on smaller needles.

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

Beg at neck opening with one strand each MC and CC held tog and larger needles, cast on 40 (54, 68, 72) sts. Work in St st until piece measures 8 (12, 16, 17) inches  from beg ending with a WS row.


 

Dec 1 st each edge every other row 8 (8, 12, 12) times – 24 (38, 44, 48) sts. Work even until piece measures 12 (16, 21, 23) inches from beg. Bind off all sts loosely.
