Cabin Rug

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®


2.5 sts and 3.6 rows = 1". 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

With A, cast on 60 sts. Work in garter st (= k every row) for 8 rows. Cont as foll:

Row 1 (RS): With A, k 6; with B, k 48; with A, k 6.
Row 2: With A, k 6; with B, p 48; with A, k 6.
Rows 3-12: Rep Rows 1 and 2.
Row 13: With A, k 6; with B, k 9; with A, k 30, with B, k 9; with A, k 6.
Row 14: With A, k 6; with B, p 9; with A, p 30; with B, p 9; with A, k 6.
Rows 15-36: Rep Rows 13 and 14.
Rows 37 & 39: Rep Row 1.
Rows 38 & 40: Rep Row 2.
Rows 41-96: Rep Rows 13-40 (twice).
Rows 97-104: Rep Rows 1 & 2 (4 times). With A, work in garter st for 8 rows. Bind off.

Reviewed by victoria.a.hopkins on 2013-04-04 ****
I liked this project a lot. I think it was good for my level which is definitely beginner. I wasn't quite ready for something with a lot of increases/decreases, but I was getting tired of scarves :). I do think it is best to already be comfortable changing colors. And I also thought it was a great idea to use more than one ball of yarn rather than keep cutting. I used 3 of color A and 2 of color B. I tried it first with just 1 each and had to keep cutting - it got really messy.
