My First Mink

Lion Brand® Fun Fur® - Festive Fur

GAUGE:

8 sts + 12 rows = 4" [10 cm] in Seed st with 2 strands of A and 1 strand of B 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.

My First Mink Reviewed by Sheryl on 2010-02-11 *
Dreadful - poor instructions and the result is a misshapen, heavy mess. Don't get the idea that because it's heavy it's warm - it about as warm as a screen door. I got this when it was a "for-fee" pattern. It certainly wasn't worth the money ---- it wouldn't be worth it if it was FREE!
