Summer Swing Jacket

Lion Brand® Cotton-Ease®

GAUGE:

13 hdc + 9 rows = 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.

Summer Swing Jacket Reviewed by dot andersen on 2010-11-21 *****
Made four last year. Washed it over and over and looks like I just made it. Doesn't change shape and I get comments on how nice it looks. Lost my pattern from last year and needed to print another to make this year.
