Soft and Warm Baby Hoodie

Lion Brand® Microspun

GAUGE:

20 sts + 40 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in Garter st (k every row). 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.

Soft and Warm Baby Hoodie Reviewed by LINDA V SHEPHERD on 2013-03-19 *****
Made this for my 2 year old great niece. Knit it in soft lavender - instead of putting the tassel on the hood, I used white fun fur for the last 1" of the hood, then added white pearl buttons - very girly looking. Her mother loves the sweater.
