Peaks of Interest Afghan and Pillow

Lion Brand Homespun®

GAUGE:

10 sc = 4 in [10 cm] 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

FPdc = YO once, insert hook from front to back around post of sc one row below next sc, YO and pull up a loop, [YO and draw through 2 loops on hook] 2 times (FPdc made), skip sc behind FPdc.
FPtr = YO twice, insert hook from front to back around post of sc two rows below next sc, YO and pull up a loop, [YO and draw through 2 loops on hook] 3 times (FPtr made), skip sc behind FPtr.
