Lion Brand® Incredible®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS). 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.

Bright Baby Tank Top Reviewed by Yvonne on 2012-02-23 ****
I enjoyed the pattern. It was quick and easy. The hardest part was the trim at the end. I could have used a link to instructions on how to do it. I made this primarily to use up some yarn. The black seemd too dark for a baby item, so I threw in the bright colors. I liked the stained glass effect. Luckily, I do have a baby niece to send it to!
