Shaded Stripes Wrap

Lion Brand« Vanna's Glamour«

GAUGE:

14 sts + 20 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern, with 2 strands 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.

Shaded Stripes Wrap - poor description, no schematic Reviewed by Sabrina McIlwrath on 2014-04-12 *
What happened to posting a schematic overview of the project? The description in the text is not very helpful and the picture does not show where you will start the project nor any real detail.
