EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL TO THIS PROJECT. 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.
1. The instructions in the loom manual for casting on are the same for both flat knitting and knitting in the round.
These instructions are under the heading of SINGLE KNITTING.
2. Knit on only the large pegs for Wristers.
The small pegs are only used to hold the loom together.
3. Wristers are knit on only one side of the loom.
Loom is set up in a rectangle to make loom easier to hold.
4. Wristers are worked as a flat rectangle and then sewn together to form tubes.
Use the following pieces: (2) 36-hole pieces, (2) U-shaped pieces.
Connect pieces to form a rectangle as follows: 36-hole piece > U-shaped piece > 36-hole piece > U-shaped piece.
Insert 17 large pegs into every other hole along only one 36-hole piece - 17 large working pegs placed.
Insert a small peg into each connecting hole to hold loom together.
