4 Ball Market Bag

Lion Brand« Kitchen Cotton

GAUGE:

10 dc = about 4 in. (10 cm).

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:

dc2tog (dc 2 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops) twice. Yarn over and draw through all loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

1. Beginning with Rnd 2, work all dc’s into the sps between sts instead of into the top of sts.

4 Ball Market Bag Reviewed by Camille Hart on 2014-03-12 ***
I had to improvise with this pattern and add rows in order to get a good length. It wasn't as good as I had anticipated. I liked the pattern, but I think that it could use some adjustments.
