FurTrimmed Jacket

Lion Brand® Chenille Thick & Quick® - Fun Fur®

GAUGE:

9 sts + 17 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with A.

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.

FurTrimmed Jacket Reviewed by Marta Stevens on 2010-02-06 *****
I made this jacket last year and am remaking it this year for my daughter. It is REALLY beautiful, much prettier than the picture. It is dressey looking but not so much that it can't be worn more causually.
