GAUGE:
12 sts x 22 rows (11 ridges) = 4 in [10 cm] in garter stitc 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.

NOTES:
Potholder is worked with 3 strands of yarn held together throughout.

To use one ball, re-roll yarn into three separate balls.

(If you hare making more than one potholder, you may find it easier to use three balls of Lion Cotton and eliminate the need for re-rolling.)

Note: Knitting twice into a stitch (once in front and once in back) of a stitch is a way to do an increase.

Then knit into the back loop of the same stitch so you have two stitches.
