Jonah's Hoodie

Lion Brand® Baby's First®

GAUGE:

12 sts + 26 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row).

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.

Jonah's Hoodie Reviewed by Sandy Sacks on 2014-10-27 *****
I am not a very good knitter, but found this pattern to work out well. The sweater was for a baby whose parents are big football fans - I added two rows of crochet - one in each of their alma mater school colors. It was a big hit at Baby's First Football Game! Definitely would make this again.
