Drop Stitch Capelet

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® - Fun Fur®

GAUGE:

12 sts + 14 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in k2, p2 Rib with larger needles and 1 strand each of A and B held tog.

20 sts + 26 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in k2, p2 Rib with smaller needles and 1 strand of A. 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.

Drop Stitch Capelet Reviewed by Laura Thomas on 2011-03-30 **
Contray to the first comment about pattern, I did not have enough of the wool to make the neck piece as long as directed. I do like the pattern and since there is enough of the fun fir, I would buy more of the wool and make the body of the piece somewhat longer.
