Lion Brand® Holiday Homespun®


13 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd). 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

Winter Mix Stocking Cap Reviewed by Amy Kirk on 2009-12-29 *****
I made this cap with christmas colors for my boyfriend. He had many people comment on the hat and ask where they could get one. It was very easy to make and looks great.
