Poodle Princess

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® - Ruffles®

GAUGE:

17 sc + 17 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) with A. EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT.
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.

Poodle Princess Reviewed by Hillary Fields on 2013-02-22 **
Argh! I got all the way through to the ruffles before realizing I needed the special Ruffles yarn, which is discontinued. Phooey! Here's my substitute attempt. Looks a bit maniacal but fun!
