15 sts + 21 rows = 4½ in. [11.5 cm] over 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


• Piece is knit from side to side, arm opening to arm opening. • Due to large number of sts, you may want to work back and forth on size 10 circular needle, 36 in. long.

BACK: Cast on 106 (116) sts. Work in St st until piece measures 40 (44) in. [100 (110) cm]. Bind off all sts.

LEFT FRONT: Cast on 106 (116) sts. Work in St st until piece measures 16 (18) in. [40, (45) cm] end with a WS row.

Neck Shaping:
Next Row (RS):
Bind off 4 sts (neck edge), work to end. Work next row (WS) even. Cont to bind off at beg of RS rows 3 sts once, 2 sts once, dec 1 st once – 96 (106) sts. Work even until piece measures 19¾ (21¾) in. [50 (55) cm]. Bind off all sts.

Work as for left front, reversing all shaping.

Sew shoulder seams. With RS facing, beg at left shoulder seam, work 1 row sc around entire piece.

Click for explanation and illustration
beg = begin(s)(ning) cont = continu(e)(s)(ing)
dec = decreas(e)(s)(ing) RS = right side
sc = single crochet St st = Stockinette stitch
st(s) = stitch(es) WS = wrong side

Urban Wrap Reviewed by Jean Lumpkin on 2014-01-06 **
I wish I had read these comments before I knit this. It curls terribly and is unwearable. I cut the pattern down a bit as I am a size 6. It is still big, but OK as far as size. I am thinking about sewing a wide ribbon or tape to the underside to see if that helps the curl but that seems like a lot of extra work. I haven't knitted or crocheted anything in 40 years so I am relearning. I liked the look of the crocheted version but I found it too hard to relearn crocheting with that kind of yarn - hard to see the stitchesn the dark green.
