Cashmere Arm Cosies

Lion Brand® Lion® Cashmere Blend

GAUGE:

26 sts = 4 in. [10 cm] in k 2, p 2 rib pattern. 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.

Cashmere Arm Cosies Reviewed by Jennifer Sorensen on 2008-09-14 *****
I learned to cable by doing this pattern! I used gray wool yarn, but they turned out great! The cable instructions were easy to follow and by the time you are finished with these, you are a confident cabler!
