Pumpkin Hat and Booties Set

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice® Baby

GAUGE:

16 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) over Stockinette st worked in the rnd (k every rnd).

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.

Pumpkin Hat and Booties Set Reviewed by Liz on 2012-11-11 ****
This was a very easy project. I made it for my second cousin when she had her baby and it knit up in no time at all. The reason I gave four stars is the booties were entirely too small. I had to rip out almost an entire bootie and remake it twice as large.
