Snowflake cape, Snow Baby jacket and beret, and Spun Sugar jacket, hat and booties are original "School House" designs by Lillian Rather.
The correct gauge is important to the fit of your garments. To check gauge, make a test swatch of at least 3" square of the pattern stitch, using the yarn and hook or needle specified.
DO NOT HESITATE TO CHANGE HOOK OR NEEDLE SIZE TO OBTAIN CORRECT GAUGE.
