Lullaby and Goodnight Baby Cocoon and Hat Set

Lion Brand« Tweed Stripes® - Luxe Fur

GAUGE:

8 sts + 10 1/2 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) with 2 strands of A held tog.

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. Cocoon and Hat are worked in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) and are very stretchy.
2. Yarn B is worked with a single strand, yarn A is worked with 2 strands held together.
3. Less than a half ball of B is needed for the Set.

With 2 strands of A held tog, work in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) until piece measures about 15 in. (38 cm) from beg.

Knit 2 rnds. Cut B. Join 2 strands of A.
With 2 strands of A held tog, work in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) until piece measures about 4 1/2 in. (11.5 cm) from beg.
