Emma Hat and Cardigan

Lion Brand Vanna's Choice® Baby

GAUGE:

15 sts + 32 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row). 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.

Emma Hat and Cardigan Reviewed by laurette on 2011-02-05 *****
This was the first sweater that I knitted and found the directions to be very easy to understand although I neglected to put in the buttonholes on the correct side. By then it was too late so I decided to forget them altogether and just put a huge snap at the top and added three buttons on the outside at the top purely for decoration. I am really pleased with the results but still don't know about how true to size it is.
