24 sts + 32 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in ribbing (see below) 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.
This sock is made in ribbing.
Ribbing is made with a combination of knit stitches and purl stitches and produces a stretchy fabric.
Knit two stitches.
Bring the yarn from the back of your work between the needles to the front.
Now purl two stitches.
Bring the yarn to the back of your work between the needles.
Knit two stitches.
Continue to knit two stitches, purl two stitches until you reach the end of the row.On the subsequent row, knit into the wrong side (WS) of the purl stitches and purl into the wrong side (WS) of the knit stitches.
Remember to have the working yarn in BACK when you knit and in FRONT when you purl
Turn and repeat rows 1 and 2 as many times as the pattern instructs.
Cast on 40 sts
All Rows: *Knit 2, purl 2.
Repeat from * 9 more times (until the end of the row is reached).
Repeat until piece measures 5.5 inches [approximately 14 cm].
Bind off all stitches.
Cut yarn, leaving a tail of approximately 18 inches.
Thread it into the large-eyed, blunt needle.
Working on the right side, sew the sides and bottom together as shown to form a sock.
Tie off end of yarn firmly on the inside of the sock and trim.
Sew the two edges together.
When you join a knitted or crocheted piece, you do so on the right side so you can see how the finished seam will look
