Lion Brand« Bonbons

GAUGE:

16 sc + 17 rows = 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:

sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

NOTES:

Wristers are worked in joined rnds with a thumb opening made by working back and forth in rows.

Spunky Wristers Reviewed by Ann McReynolds Bartee on 2014-05-17 ****
My daughter wore these as soon as I finished them. They don't have much shaping though. If you don't like weaving in ends, then this pattern isn't for you.
