Alaska Poncho and Hat: Man's Version

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

10 sts + 16 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

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.

Alaska Poncho and Hat: Man's Version Reviewed by RAFFAEL SANTANA on 2012-09-09 ***
The Gauge on this pattern is way off! ugh. i had to jump three needle sizes higher to make the dimensions on the pattern. so i opted on my third try to continue with the needle size in pattern and calculate the differnce in the patttern and buy more yarn and then more on top of it. just looked nicer not too loosely done.

The design itself is wonderful but the gauges on LB patterns always seem off for me and almost always require a second trip to the store to purchase more yarn.

its Tiring no more Lionsbrand patterns or yarns.
