13 sts + 18 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. 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.

Yo (yarn over) An increase that also creates a small eyelet.

In this pattern, the yo is worked as follows:

Bring yarn to front, between the needles.


Take yarn to back, over the right needle.

The loop you have created is an increased st and you are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.


Throw is worked in one piece, in Garter st (k every row) beginning at one corner and working diagonally across to opposite corner.

In the first half of the Throw, 1 st is increased on every row; in the second half of the Throw, 1 st is decreased on every row.


Yarn overs (yo) create decorative eyelets along the edges of the Throw.
