20 stitches by 32 rows = 4" (10 cm) in stockinette stitch (knit and purl alternate rows) with US #8 (5mm) needles 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.
Product quantity used is small; this is a great project for using up left-over yarn.
A single full skein of yarn will make at least 4 copies of this sweater
With A and size 8 needles, cast on 24 sts.
Knit in stockinette (knit a row, purl a row) until piece measures 2 1/2 inches.
Bind off, leaving a tail of 8 inches.
Cast on 12 sts.
Rows 1-24 Knit in St st.
Bind off all stitches, leave 6 inch [15 cm] tail.
Sew front and back of sweater together to make a tube.
Tie off securely, cut and wave in ends.
The tiny crochet hook was made from the ring that secures the milk jug lid (and that has to be removed when opening the jug).
We used scissors to cut it to shape.
Purchased at Michael's: The Arts and Craft Store in the floral section.
MINIATURE YARN BALLS
Use any kind of lightweight yarn to create yarn ball and skeins.
For these skeins, we unraveled about 4 feet of Lion Wool into its four separate strands, got them damp, ironed them to make them straight and then wrapped them into skeins.
We made labels, cut them to size, wrapped them and secured them with tape.

After the sheet is printed cut the sheets carefully to size.
To keep ours organized, we used a thumbtack to make a hole in the corner and put a jewelry jump ring through the hole to keep them together.
We have also seen very tiny two-prong brads that could be used for this purpose.
