GAUGE:
12 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. 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.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
dc3tog over 5 sts (decrease of 4 sts) Step 1: Yarn over, insert hook into next sc and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops (2 loops on hook); Step 2: Skip next sc, yarn over, insert hook into next sc and draw up a loop.

Yarn over, draw through 2 loops (3 loops on hook); Step 3: Skip next sc, yarn over, insert hook into next sc and draw up a loop.

Yarn over, draw through 2 loops (4 loops on hook); Step 4:Yarn over and draw through all loops on hook - 4 sts decreased.





Lace Inc (increase of 4 sts) Work (dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc) all in same indicated st for lace inc - 4 sts increased.

NOTES:
Each dc3tog over 5 sts (4-st dec) is paired with a lace inc (4-st inc), so stitch count will not change throughout this pattern.
