Diamond Lace Ttunic

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Sportweight

GAUGE:

3 sc = 1 inches; 1 pat rep = 2 1/3 inches wide x 3 inches high. 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.

Diamond Lace Ttunic Reviewed by Susan on 2011-08-05 *****
I LOVE this pattern! I haven't finished yet because I ordered special yarn for it from a different manufacturer and didn't pay enough attention to the yardage of the yarn. Long story short, I am waiting for more yarn. But I love the crocheted FABRIC in this design! It works up very fast and makes me smile to look at!

Also, the pattern is very easy to follow!
