Lion Brand« Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

16 single crochet + 18 rows = 4 in. (10 cm). 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

Change color when joining a round. To join and change color, insert hook in first single crochet of round, yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook; drop, but do not cut old color. Carry color not in use loosely up inside of piece.

Pumpkin Pal Reviewed by Theresa Pearson on 2010-10-07 *****
What fun he was to make! My tweaks were: I made the main piece as one, switching to a strand of copper Fun Fur and a strand of black Fun Fur held together, just decreasing back down to 6 stitches and finishing it off. I used Fun in black and orange for the body front, arms and legs and made the face all in black. I made the toothy grin in one piece as well.
