Matinee Jacket

Lion Brand® Lion® Suede

GAUGE:

11 sts + 9½ rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Griddle stitch. 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.

Matinee Jacket Reviewed by Sarah A. Kneier on 2011-01-25 *****
This is an awesome pattern. The waffle stitch looks so nice when it is finished. I gave the one I finished to my Mother and she wore it to church and got many compliments.
