14 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st in the rnd (k every rnd). 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. When knitting in the round on double pointed needles (dpns), your sts need to be divided fairly evenly onto the needles.

If you are working with a set of 4 dpn, your sts should be divided among 3 needles.

If you are working with a set of 5 dpn, your sts should be divided among 4 needles.

The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns that you are using - this is not a problem! Simply divide your sts as evenly as possible, you will still create a symmetrical 'tube' of knitting.
2. When you see 'work even' in the instructions, this means to continue on in the pattern st you have established without changing the st count by increasing, decreasing, or binding off.


Cast on 63 sts.

Divide sts onto 4 needles (16 sts on each of 3 needles, and 15 sts on 1 needle).

Place marker for beg of rnd.

Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
Work even in St st in the rnd (k every rnd) until piece measures about 4 in.

(10 cm) from beg.
