Lion Brand® Lion® Suede

GAUGE:

9 hdc2tog + 8 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:

    • 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.

Show Stopper Coat Reviewed by GeGe Dodd on 2013-09-16 *****
Ladies!Ladies!- This coat is a FABU! head turner. Can I just say "OMG!". I have used suede yarns for years. Unlike chenille yarn,it is a very durable and manageable fiber to work with. I LOVE!how it feels. You must keep in mind not to be too overly aggressive while working with it. Have some patience. The end result will not disappoint! I will recommend using the next size up on the crochet hook. This will create a little ease on fiber, make easy hook insertion that will allow you to see your crocheted stitches more clearly. Once those stitches are locked by other stitches, the suede fibers starts to expand and interlock each other tightly. Thus giving more stability. Suede is not only durable and last for long wear, it also holds warmth, it is soft and luxurious. It's one of the Haute Couture of fibers, like many other of its caliber to knit or crochet with,etc . DON'T Be SC-KARED!! ENJOY!:) GeGe
