32 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k 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.
Short rows are a way to add shaping to a knit piece without changing the st count by increasing or decreasing.
When working short rows, only a portion of the row is knit, the rem sts are left unworked.
This gradually adds height to one section of the knitting, while the height of the other section does not change.
To work short rows, the pattern will tell you to 'turn' before you reach the end of the row.
Cast on 55 sts.
Row 1: Knit.
Row 2: K44, turn, leave rem 11 sts unworked.
Row 3: K44.
Row 4: K33, turn, leave rem 22 sts unworked.
Row 5: K33.
Row 6: K22, turn, leave rem 33 sts unworked.
Row 7: K22.
Row 8: K11, turn, leave rem 44 sts unworked.
Row 9: K11.
Row 10: K across all 55 sts.
Repeat Rows 1-10 until nearly all yarn has been used, end with a Row 10.
Note: End with a Row 10 means that the last row you work should be a Row 10.
Weave in ends.
