GAUGE:

10 hdc + 8 rows = 4 in. [10 cm]. 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.

Matinee 'Swing' Jacket Reviewed by Laura Biggs on 2013-09-18 *****
I just finished this sweater! I love how easy (& quick!) it was to make as well as the fit and feel of it. I made the medium size which is the size top I usually wear, but I worked an extra inch in length on the bottom before beginning the raglan shaping. Now if our Texas weather would just cool off so that I could wear it.
