Lion Brand® Cotton-Ease®

GAUGE:

14 sts + 7 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in V-st 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:

V-st (dc, ch 1, dc) in indicated st or ch.
3-dc fan 3 dc in indicated st or ch.

PATTERN STITCH
V-st Pattern
Row 1 (WS):
Ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout), turn, dc in next dc, *V-st in ch-1 sp of next V-st, 3 dc in center dc of next 3-dc fan; rep from * across to last 2 dc, dc in last 2 dc.
Row 2 (RS): Ch 3, turn, dc in next dc, *3 dc in center dc of next 3-dc fan, V-st in ch-1 sp of next V-st; rep from * across to last 2 dc, dc in last 2 dc.
Rep Rows 1 and 2 for pattern.

NOTES:

When checking the number of V-sts per row, count only the V-sts, not the dc on each end or the 3-dc fans in the row. The pattern is worked with V-st over V-st, 3-dc fan over 3-dc fan so that the stitch patterns line up vertically. Check periodically to make sure you are consistent with this pattern.

Airy Lace Shell Reviewed by Amanda Barnhart on 2013-06-11 ***
This pattern was easy to follow. I'm giving it a low star amount because the arm holes finish to large and the top it's self isn't flattering.
