Bohemian Beauty to Crochet

Lion Brand® Moonlight Mohair - Trellis®

GAUGE:

6 sc + 7 rows = 4" [10 cm] with 1 strand each of C1 and C2 held tog.

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.

Bohemian Beauty to Crochet Reviewed by wport77 on 2014-02-07 *****
Love this! My mother made this for a friend of ours. We substituted a yarn for the mohair. But whatever she used is nice and soft. Despite the holes in the vest, I see it as being fairly warm. For me, since I am one of those almost always hot people, I'd find it overly warm. I am hoping my friend will love it!
