Cabled Baby Set

Lion Brand® Lion® Organic Cotton

GAUGE:

18 sts + 34 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in Garter st (k every row) with larger needles.
19 sts + 27 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with larger needles.

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.

Cabled Baby Set Reviewed by Erica Johnson on 2013-10-02 *****
Not all patterns are good! However, I appreciated how nicely the proportions came out on this pattern - that it actually FIT the baby. It turned out really adorable, and I added the heart on the top. I did not make the hat or booties, so they aren't included in this rating.
