Speed Hook 2-Hour Tank

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®


4 dc + 2 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] with 1 strand each of A and 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch


dc2tog (dc dec) Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops. Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

With 1 strand each of A and B held together, ch 19 (20, 22, 24, 26) loosely.
Row 1 (right side): Dc in 4th ch from hook (3 skipped ch counts as dc) and in each ch across – 17 (18, 20, 22, 24) dc.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), turn, dc in each st across.
Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 16 in. [40.5 cm] from beg.
