DIRECTIONS

GAUGE:

18 sts + 14 rows = 4 in. in pattern.

BE SURE TO CHECK GAUGE. 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. If it takes you

fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if

more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

NOTES:

1. Bodice is worked in one piece from lower edge (waist edge) to armholes, then divided and backs

and front are worked separately to shoulders.

2. Sleeves and skirt are worked directly onto bodice.
