Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

10 sts = 4" [10 cm] in pattern.

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.

New Wave Throw Reviewed by Sally Lofquist on 2015-11-24 ***
I am in the process of crocheting this pattern.
I love the pattern, I love the varigated colors of the yarn, I love the softness of the yarn, but hate working with it! The twist makes it extremely difficult to see individual stitches consequently it's very slow working with it.
I had to get a larger sized hook (L) than suggested and crochet much looser which made for large holes between the stitches. Something I don't like in a throw.
Really sorry I bought this before trying a skein. I can't return it as I bought it a long time ago & have no receipt.
