My Mink Coat

Lion Brand® Fun Fur® - Microspun

GAUGE:

13 sts and 10 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in Garter st (k every row) with larger needles and 2 strands of A and 1 strand of B held together. 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.

Downloadable Pattern: My Mink Coat Reviewed by NANCY BROOKS on 2008-12-17 *****
I made this jacket and it was a fun project. It is a very heavy jacket so it is really warm. This was the first pattern that I downloaded and I was proud that I managed that. Totally simple. I sent a photo of it to you with the zebra jacket that I made earlier. But enclosed it again if you wnat that for the review.Love your site, always want more glamorous projects. Nancy
