Baby Brights Pants

Lion Brand® Sock-EaseTM


28 sts + 37 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with larger needles 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.

Baby Brights Pants Reviewed by Jan Parsons on 2015-01-17 *
Something is very wrong with the directions or the measurements. I followed the instructions, but it's much longer than noted in the pattern.
