Sweet Sophisticate Baby Set

Lion Brand® Microspun

GAUGE:

24 sts + 32 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS) on smaller needles.

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:

2/2 LC (2 over 2 left cross) Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k 2, then k 2 from cable needle.
2/2 RC (2 over 2 right cross) Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in back, k 2, k 2 from cable needle.

Sweet Sophisticate Baby Set Reviewed by Sherry Patrick on 2014-10-21 *****
I knitted the coral sweater and hat for a gift, it turned out beautiful. Then I needed to make another gift for a baby boy and knitted the sweater and hat in the tan color. They were fun to knit and very rewarding as the sets were beautiful. I wish I would have taken photos as I was very proud to give them as a gift. One of my favorite patterns.
