Lion Brand® Velvetspun

GAUGE:

7 1/2 sc + 7 rows = 4 in. (10 cm). 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:

sc2tog (sc dec) Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.

NOTES:

Work in back loops only throughout.

Editor's Note: Based on customer comments, this pattern was revised on February 15, 2008.

Bunny Blanket Buddy Reviewed by Jackie on 2014-06-25 *****
This was really quick and easy. I also inserted a cat ball into the head so it makes a little rattle.
