Lion Brand Lion® Cashmere Blend

GAUGE:

14 sc + 12 rnds = 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.

Elfin Baby Set Reviewed by Brenda Ghezzi on 2010-12-27 ****
Cute but if you have larger babies you have to use it quick... my baby was too big for it by 4 weeks. Easy to make but the ear flaps sit a little far back. I also made long strings in order to tie it if wanted.
