Lion Brand® Sock-EaseTM


22 sts + 32 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with 2 strands of yarn held tog.

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.

Miss Mousie Reviewed by Cindy Booth on 2009-06-17 *****
I made Miss Mousie and filled her with catnip. My cat went nuts. He carried it everywhere and slept with it.
