Halford Cap

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®


17 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in K2, p2 Rib, slightly stretched. 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

Row 1 (RS):
*K2, p2; rep from * to last 2 sts, end k2.

Halford Cap Reviewed by Dee Hardison on 2014-12-05 ****
No one else had trouble with casting on 86? I think it needs to be a number divisible by 4, or it won't work out correctly.
