Lion Brand® Lion® Suede

GAUGE:

10 hdc = 4" [10 cm]; 5 rows = 3" [7.5 cm] in hdc with 2 strands of A held tog.

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:

hdc2tog (hdc dec) Yo, insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Yo, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yo, draw through all loops on hook.

Bag Reviewed by Jenni on 2008-01-30 *****
I get lots of compliments on this bag. The pattern was pretty straight-forward, however, I had some problems getting used to working with the suede yarn. I made my bag with black sides instead of the pink shown, so I needed one extra ball of the black yarn.
