Lion Brand« Vanna's Palettes
16 sts + 15 rnds = 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.
Making a Gauge Swatch
1. Wrister cuff is worked back and forth in rows, then joined to make a ring.
2. Sts are worked along one edge of cuff, then Wristers are worked in the rnd.
3. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. Fasten off old color.
4. Each package of VANNA'S PALETTES contains 8 miniature balls of yarn. In order to follow the Stripe Sequence, so that your Wristers look exactly like those shown in the photo, you'll need to identify each color yarn in each VANNA'S PALETTES package. To identify the yarn color names, check the photograph of the yarn packages at LionBrand.com.
5. The Wristers do not use every color of yarn in the packages. Use the remaining yarn for other projects, or feel free to substitute colors in the Wristers.
