Lion Brand® Cotton-Ease®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 32 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.

Hoodie Reviewed by Jessica on 2012-05-06 *****
I love this pattern. It is a relatively quick knit and it fits great! Given that I'm not a huge fan of knitting stripes I improvise and follow the pattern using a variegated yarn to give it the multicolor and striped appearance then use a coordinating solid color for the trim.
