GAUGE:

12 sts + 10 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in hdc. 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.

Wee Vest Reviewed by Laurie on 2013-09-20 ****
I just made this cute vest using color "SWEET PEA". Beautiful color and quality yarn. Instructions are not clear on how to attach hood. Prefer a clear diagram for this. This little girl wearing the vest looks different than the faint sketch provided on the instruction sheet.
