Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

13 sts and 12 rows = 4in [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.

Streamlined Sweater Jacket Reviewed by Debbie Fischer on 2012-06-26 **
I have been crocheting for 45 years and I would have to agree that this pattern is not written very well. A stitch count at the end of rows would be very helpful and being a little clearer on the neck edging would be nice too. It just seems that they "steamlined" the written pattern a little too much. I have been muddling through it with an occasional naughty word and hopefully will get done with this project soon.
