GAUGE:
14 sts + 20 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS) using larger straight needles. 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.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog - 1 st decreased.


M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle to make a new st.

Knit this new stitch through the back loop.
