Frog Bib

Lion Brand® Cotton-Ease®

GAUGE:

16 sc = 4 in. (10 cm) with A. 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.

Frog Bib Reviewed by Mearla VanDenBerg on 2012-01-27 *****
This made up very easy & is adorable! I slip-stitched back down the chains for the ties to strengthen them, but had to make them chain 50 in order for them to be long enough. Love it!
