Knit Sampler Throw

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

16 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Ridge st.

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.

Knit Sampler Throw Reviewed by celeste alderson on 2012-10-16 ****
Love the pattern, but, I needed 4 skeins of the toffee for 7 squares and 4 skeins of brick to make 7 squares. The other 3 skeins were fine when making 6 squares. Just sayin'.
