Lion Baby Bath Wrap

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton

GAUGE:

14 sc = 4 inches (10 cm) with Size F-5 (3.75 mm) 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.

Lion Baby Bath Wrap Reviewed by Robin Comfort on 2011-09-12 *****
I made two of these for a twins' baby shower. My only suggestion is that as I got to the widest part it would have been good to have at least a target measurement to know I was crocheting in the right direction. Other than that I made them as blanket/capes for the babies. The mom and dad just loved them. The aunt is trying to steal them to use as baby photo props! I made each in slightly different colors. And my picture is not great but the capes ARE!
