Striped Trim Poncho

Lion Brand Homespun®

GAUGE:

6.5 sc + 6.5 rows = 4" [10 cm] on larger hook.
6.5 sts + 4 rows = 4" [10 cm] in Body pattern on larger hook.

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:

V-stitch (dc, ch 1, dc) in same st or ch-space

NOTES:

Pattern is written for smallest size with changes for larger sizes in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning.
