Lion Brand« Heartland

GAUGE:

12 sts + 6 1/2 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern;
Center Motif = about 7 in. (18 cm) diameter.

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:

beg-Cl (beg cluster) Ch 2, yarn over, insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops rem on hook); yarn over, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

Cl (cluster) Yarn over, insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops rem on hook), *yarn over, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook; rep from * once more, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

NOTES:

1. Shrug is worked in joined rnds beg at center. Do not turn at the end of rnds.
2. Color is changed by fastening off old color and joining new color.
3. Piece is folded and 2 side seams sewn to create armholes.

FINISHING
Fold piece in half. With fold at top, measure 8 in. (20.5 cm) down from fold on each side and place marker for armholes. Measure 6 in. (15 cm) along edge below each marker and place another marker. Baste or pin edges together between markers and try Shrug on to check fit. Adjust marker position if desired, then sew edges together between markers on both sides. Weave in ends.

Sunset Shrug Reviewed by Janet Sharik on 2014-03-26 ****
Made this with the wrong hook (3.75mm) instead of the recommended J hook. It look really nice! Will post photo of what I did once I finish the fitting.

I rate this four stars, because the finishing instruction was a bit confusing as to how do I figure out the marking for the "sleeve" opening.
