GAUGE:
15 stitches = about 4 in. (10 cm) 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.

NOTES:
1. Follow loom manual instructions for SINGLE KNITTING for how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off.
2. The loom is configured into a square to make it easier to hold, but knitting is worked in rows across only one side of the loom.
3. Finished Throw is blocked by machine washing and drying.
