Velvety Hood

Lion Brand® Chenille Thick & Quick®


8 sts = 4 inches (10 cm) in pat. 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.

Velvety Hood Reviewed by Isabel Stone on 2014-07-16 ****
my daugter requested this one. She has a longer, slimmer face than I, and it looks really good in the dark green.

I had her try it on while "in process" and decided to add to the length, and also did a bit of increasing so it would drape a bit on the shoulders.

very easy, very fast, VERY pretty in TQ Chenille!
