Midnight Elegance Fabulous Fur-Look Jacket

Lion Brand® Chenille Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

8 sts + 14 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in 3x2 rib. 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.

Midnight Elegance Fabulous Fur-Look Jacket Reviewed by Jamie Mullenix on 2011-01-22 ***
tried to make this. ended up frogging it after the first skein. The size of the fabric didn't match up with the pattern. Ended up with 16" instead of 22" (on back)unless I stretched it which resulted in lousy looking fabric.
