Bear in a Jif

Lion Brand® Jiffy®

GAUGE:

11 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:

Sc2tog (decrease) (Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop) twice. Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

NOTES:

Rnds are worked in continuous spirals; do not join and do not turn. Place marker to indicate beg of rnd.

Bear in a Jif Reviewed by Kathy on 2014-03-09 *****
Very nice gift for baby showers, Christmas gifts, and bear friends for kids in the hospital. Very easy to work up in lots of colors. I did one in rainbow yarn (bright version) and I fell in love with it and kept it for myself! It's very cheery and brings a smile. Kathy Miller at kaneedle@gmail.com.
