11 sts = 3"; 6 rows = 1". 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.
Potholder is worked with 3 strands of yarn held together throughout.
To use one ball, re-roll yarn into three separate balls.
(If you hare making more than one potholder, you may find it easier to get three balls of Lion Cotton to eliminate the need to re-roll.)
KNITTED POTHOLDER: With three strands of yarn held together, cast on 28 sts.
Work in garter st (= k every row) until 8" from beg.
Bind off until one stitch remains.
Knit that st, remove needle, insert crochet hook (ch 10, sl st to base st of ch) for loop.
