Lion Brand® Tweed Stripes®
7 V-sts = about 8 in. (20.5 cm).
EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT.
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
|V-st: (Dc, ch 2, dc) all in indicated st or ch.|
Row 1: V-st in 6th ch from hook (beg ch counts as dc), *sk next 2 ch, V-st in next ch; rep from * across to last 3 ch, sk next 2 ch, dc in last ch – 7 V-sts at the end of this row.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc here and throughout), turn, V-st in each ch-2 sp across to last dc, sk last dc, dc in top of turning ch.
Rep Row 2 until nearly all yarn has been used. Fasten off.
Weave in ends.
