Level 1 Crocheted Cardigan

Lion Brand« Lion's Pride« Woolspun«

GAUGE:

13 sts + 9 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in (hdc, ch 1) 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.

Level 1 Crocheted Cardigan Reviewed by Mona Simpson-Premorel on 2014-09-14 *****
I love this pattern. I also love the easy to follow diagrams, which help me learn how to read patterns. Until now, I could only read the text patterns, this helps me learn and follow diagrams. Thank you for this new addition to your site. Keep up the good work.
