Sweet Sandy Camel

Lion Brand® Martha Stewart CraftsTM/MC Extra Soft Wool Blend

GAUGE:

20 sts + 28 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.
ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog - 1 st decreased.

1. Camel is knit in one piece then stuffed and seamed.

Sweet Sandy Camel Reviewed by h on 2014-07-16 ****
im almost finished and have just realized that this camel might wind up with two legs. im going to try to turn it into four skinny legs, but am not too hopeful. wish the description had mentioned this.
