Motif Vest

Lion Brand® Jamie® Pompadour


Each motif measures 3 inches x 3 inches (7.5 x 7.5 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.

Motif Vest Reviewed by Nancy Schultz on 2008-05-14 *****
Made this in blue for work over a white blouce and it worked great. Now we have to wear green ,so I'll be making a green one. Nice warm season vest, easy and fun to do.
