Mesh Tank

Lion Brand® LB Collection® Wool Stainless Steel

GAUGE:

19 sts + 38 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

1. Tank is worked with 2 strands held tog. For sizes M, 1X, and 2X only, wind one cone into 2 separate balls before beginning. Store each wound ball in a re-sealable bag to keep yarn untangled.
2. Back and Front are worked in Garter st (k every row).

Mesh Tank Reviewed by Deb Altman on 2012-05-10 *
First time reviewer...loved the look of this so bought the kit. Was very disappointed when I opened to find that this is not yarn, it's thread. Impossible to handle. Because I like the look of the pattern, I hope to be able to find a substitute for the yarn.
