GAUGE:
15 sts + 18 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter Stitch (knit every st on every row). 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:
Kfb (knit into front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st - 1 st increased.

NOTES:
Materials are sufficient to make multiple Headbands.
