Falling Water Shawl

Lion Brand« Homespun®

GAUGE:

11 sts + 4 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern.

 

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.

Falling Water Shawl Reviewed by Kimberly Burk on 2014-05-04 *****
Looks like they listened to you, Dottie! With the addition of a dash before the row description (at the end of every row), the pattern is now very easy to read!
