Additional Materials
Small (1/4 or 3/8 inch - [6 - 10mm]) rhinestone button
18 sts + 26 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS) with smaller needles and A. 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.

The amount of yarn used in this project is very small and it is a great project for using up left-over yarn.

A single full skein of each yarn will make at least 6 copies of this outfit.
