Hooded Coverup

Lion Brand® Jiffy®


13 stitches + 20 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). 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.

Hooded Coverup Reviewed by Lori Fox on 2012-02-01 *****
This sweater was my first attempt at knitting a sweater. I have many years experience of crocheting and I have knitted blankets before. This pattern was so easy to follow and really easy to adapt when I wanted more button holes.
