GAUGE:
8 sts and 12 rows = 4" in St st. 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.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
3-needle bind off: With RS together, hold in one hand 2 dpns or straight needles with equal number of sts on each.

With third dpn or spare straight needle (k 1 st from front needle and 1 st from back needle together) twice, *pass first st over second to bind off, k next st on both needles together; rep from * until all sts are bound-off.

NOTES:
For ease of working, circular needles may be used for larger pieces,working back-and-forth unless otherwise indicated.
