Driftwood Pullover

Lion Brand« Recycled Cotton

GAUGE:

One Motif = about 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 in. (11.5 x 11.5 cm);
9 mesh squares + 8 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Mesh insert 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.

Driftwood Pullover Reviewed by Donna on 2013-10-02 *****
Very nice. Easy to make, but took a long time. I find that the cotton yarn shreds so it's not easy to weave in the ends.
