Hoodie: Fun-Fur and Lion Boucle

Lion Brand® Lion® Bouclé - Fun Fur®

GAUGE:

10 sts + 20 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in Garter st (knit every row). 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

Hoodie: Fun-Fur and Lion Boucle Reviewed by Barbara Rumpf on 2009-11-16 *****
I found that I couldn't get the gauge with the boucle, so I used Vanna's Choice instead with the fun fur. It turned out so great! I used hot pink worsted and Mango fun fur. My granddaughter loves it.
