Lion Brand® Bonbons®


26 sts + 36 rows = about 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


kfb (knit in front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st – 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. Color is changed every other row according to Color Combinations. Do not cut yarn until instructed. Carry color not in use across WS of piece.
2. Allow top edge of Bootie to roll inwards.
3. Ears are worked separately and sewn to Bootie.
