Not applicable. 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.
Cut 4 lengths of wire each 60 in.
(152.5 cm) and 8 lengths each 24 in.
With pliers, bend one end of each length into a loop.
Tie yarn to bent end of wire, then wrap wire completely with yarn.
If needed, secure ends of yarn with glue.
Repeat for all wire pieces.
Hold 4 longer lengths together and wrap at center with a small piece of wire.
Lay bundle onto a flat surface, and spread lengths into evenly spaced spokes.
Twist the ends of a shorter wire length onto ends of 2 adjoining spokes; repeat for all eight sections.
Cut a long doubled length of yarn.
Tie length to one spoke, about 5 in.
(12.5 cm) inside outer edge.
Wrap and knot yarn around each spoke in turn.
Repeat with 4 more doubled yarn lengths, each about 5 in.
(12.5 cm) closer to the Web center.
