Darling Devil Set

Lion Brand® Glitterspun® (old)


16 sts + 24 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in St st (k on right side, p on wrong side) with 2 strands of yarn held tog. 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.

2 strands of yarn are held together throughout.

Darling Devil Set Reviewed by Sunshine Loveless on 2008-10-11 ****
I used this pattern to make the "tail".( I had a different one for the "horns").I wore this costume to a halloween party at a local nursing home.The residents and nurses thought it was so neat that I had knit a costume.They all loved it and so did the kids and parents that came to the party.
