Embroidered Hood

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Chunky - Cotton-Ease®

GAUGE:

13 sts + 18 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

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. Circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
2. Button Flap and Buttonhole Flap are worked first, then stitches are cast on between the Flaps for front edge of the Hood.

Embroidered Hood Reviewed by Katie Leslie on 2011-08-31 *****
I absolutely love this pattern!! I work outside and I thought this would be a cute but functional accessory. The pattern was very clear and I had no issues with it even though I am not the most experienced of knitters. I definitely want to make more of these but in wild and crazy yarns!
