Child's Popcorn-Stitch Pullover

Lion Brand® Jiffy®

GAUGE:

12 dc = 4 inches (10 cm) 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.

Child's Popcorn-Stitch Pullover Reviewed by Katie Ross-Olds on 2008-08-28 *****
I have made this sweater 2 times for my granddaughter. I just used a little bit bigger hook to make it a bit bigger. (ages 4 and 6). It is really quite easy and goes fast. The arms appear a bit long, but when on it is perfect.
