Crochet Short Jacket

Lion Brand® Lion® Suede - Moonlight Mohair

GAUGE:

7 hdc2tog + 6 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in pattern with 1 strand each of A and 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

hdc2tog Yarn over hook, insert hook into st, draw up loop, yarn over hook, insert hook into next st and draw up loop, yarn over hook and draw through all 5 loops on hook.
hdc3tog Yarn over hook, insert hook into st, draw up loop, (yarn over hook, draw up a loop in next st) twice, yarn over hook and draw through all 7 loops on hook.

PATTERN STITCH
Row 1 (RS):
Hdc2tog into 3rd and 4th ch from hook, *hdc2tog inserting hook into same ch as st just worked and next ch; repeat from * across, end hdc in last ch.
Row 2: Ch 2, turn, hdc2tog into first and 2nd sts, *hdc2tog inserting hook into same st as st just worked and next st; repeat from * across, end hdc in top of ch-2.
Repeat Row 2 for pattern.
Note Beg ch-2 and last hdc are not included in stitch count.

NOTES:

1. Take care in setting up first 2 rows to establish pattern.
2. To maintain st count, be sure to work end of row as written, working hdc2tog into 2nd to last and last sts and hdc into turning ch. Check work from time to time to be sure hdc2togs are lining up and st count is maintained.
3. Jacket is worked with 1 strand each of A and B held together, unless otherwise noted.

Crochet Short Jacket Reviewed by Shadow on 2011-08-11 ***
This is going to be interesting. At the end of Row 2, it states to make another HDC along with the 2 already made in the same stitch. After counting everything in that row to assure of a 69, I counted 72ish . . might have been 73 so that 3rd HDC . . NOT NEEDED. I also had to realign my left anad right sides as they do not like up as 16-33-16. It's closer to 16-35-16 (Working large pattern

And I am using stitch markers and a stitch counter. I gave it a medium rating becuase I'm not far enouogh along to really judge one way or the other. I just know that the first 2 rows are screwy but if you count and measure and half and make it even, it might still work.
