Lion Brand® Jiffy®

GAUGE:

12 sts + 6 rows = 6 in. [15.25 cm] in pattern.

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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Bobble Holding back last loop of each dc, work 5 dc in next st, yarn over and pull through 6 loops on hook.

Elspeth Shawl Reviewed by Marge Stone on 2014-03-18 ****
I made this with a light weight yarn and think it is very pretty. I wish there was a pattern that would make this a full moon ponchos. It is very pretty if you turn it around like a cover up however you can't wear it that way.
