GAUGE:

17 tr + 10 rows = 6 in. (15 cm) in pattern stitch 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.

Reviewed by Ingrid Ford on 2013-01-19 ****
The only problem I have is the straps are a bit long and I had to alter them because they stuck out under the armpits. So I decreased around the bottom of the strap as needed. It's bulkier than it seems just FYI. Other than that the pattern works great.
