GAUGE:

14 sts and 18 rows = 4" in St st. TO INSURE PROPER SIZE, BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

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.

Knitted Dancing Star Baby Bunting Reviewed by Laurel L Appleman on 2014-02-01 ***
I started on this pattern - the KNITTED star - but ran into troubles with the written directions matching the charts. Until, that is, I realized page 3 - the one with the three charts - is for the CROCHETED version.

SO

if you make the KNITTED star, DON"T use page 3. The KNITTED chart has 112 rows, the CROCHET chart has 88. They don't match.

Now I'm off to ravel and start over! :/
