Luxe Faux Zebra Jacket

Lion Brand® Fun Fur® - Wool-Ease® Sportweight

GAUGE:

14 sts + 15 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with one strand each Fun Fur and Wool-Ease Sportweight held together. 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between the needles and placing it onto the left needle. Work this new stitch through the back loop.

NOTES:

Before beginning pattern, circle all numbers pertaining to your size for ease in working.
Entire garment is worked with one strand each Fun Fur and Wool-Ease Sportweight held together.
Twist yarns on wrong side of work when changing colors to prevent holes.

Luxe Faux Zebra Jacket Reviewed by NANCY BROOKS on 2008-12-17 *****
Of all the things I have made, I think I love this one the most, because it is so unique. People always ask me where I found it and even strangers have told me they couldn't help asking me where I got it. I did think it was difficult, but I am a stickler about following the graph and thinking back I probably wouldn't have needed to tear out rows to change a stitch that I used the wrong color, it never would have shown anyway. I love jackets, you can change a whole look with a change of a jacket. This is a WOW jacket! Nancy
