GAUGE:
10 sc = 4 in. (10 cm); in Main Pattern 2 repeats = about 5 in. (12.5 cm); 4 rows = about 3 in. (7.5 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
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

NOTES:
1.

Jacket is worked from the top down.

2.

St counts in this pattern are given as the number of 3-dc groups within each row because the pattern shifts back and forth every other row.

3.

The border around the body is worked in rnds.

To work sc along the front edges, work 2 sc in each row edge by inserting hook under only 2 strands of the dc for each st.

4.

Move the corner markers to the corner st in each new rnd of the border as you work to mark the increase corner for the next rnd.
