Flattering Jacket

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

12 sts = 4 inches (10 cm).

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.

Flattering Jacket Reviewed by Lynn Currie on 2012-09-28 *
Extremely confusing pattern. Took it out, did it again, took it out. Already had the back done so had to continue, but so frustrating and I've made complicated items before but this takes the cake!
