Lion Brand® Babysoft®

GAUGE:

Sweater, Hat, Booties 24 sts + 32 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) and Pattern st on Size 4 (3.5 mm) needles
Blanket 22 sts + 34 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in Pattern stitch on Size 6 (4 mm) needles 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.

Aqua Layette Set Reviewed by Corinne Gaudette on 2011-08-06 *****
loved knitting the sweater. Easy to follow instructions and loved that there were no shoulder seams! Hardly any sewing required makes for a softer, smoother look. Will make it again.
