Seasonably Chic Hood

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Chunky


11 sts + 30 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Brioche Rib with larger needle.

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.

Seasonably Chic Hood Reviewed by ASHLEY A BEDO on 2011-01-12 *****
Great! First time following a patter, so i was sort of confused at first.. but just by basic stuff you would probably know how to do if you read from patterns. I like to stray of and do my own thing though usually.. I wanted to make this larger but even after making it bigger it seems to not make much of a difference. Now I noticed they have a larger one with more of the look I was going for.

Oh I made one for my little niece and my sister for Christmas so they could match. They were a huge hit! <3
