Child's Easy Hooded Pullover

Lion Brand® PolarSpun

GAUGE:

14 sts + 19 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) using larger needles. 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.

Child's Easy Hooded Pullover Reviewed by Fern Osborne on 2013-03-13 ***
Easy to follow pattern. Body should be longer and sleeves were too long in proportion to the body. Will definately make this again but I will increase the length of the body by at least 2 inches and make the sleeves at least 2 inches shorter.
