How to make a gauge swatch:
Gather up the exact yarn and needles that you plan to use for your project. Cast on a number of stitches that will give you at least four inches across, and then work in stockinette stitch or the specified stitch pattern until you have made a bit more than four vertical inches of fabric. Measure the number of stitches per inch and compare that measurement with the gauge specified on your pattern. The gauge swatches below were made exactly the same except for the needle size. This is the difference only one needle size can make! Make your life easier by using a gauge and needle size checker!
