Slim Silhouette Coat

Lion Brand® Lion® Bouclé

GAUGE:

13 sts + 16 1/2 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in k1, p1 Rib with larger 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.

Slim Silhouette Coat Reviewed by Beth Duffield on 2009-02-22 ****
I enjoyed making this. It worked up quickly. I did put two buttons on to help hold it in shape as it tends to flare open below the buttons. I recieved many complements on it the two times I have worn it. It is warm yet light.
