GAUGE:

23 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in K3, p3 Rib, slightly stretched. 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.

Fitted Top Reviewed by Linda omalley on 2013-01-17 ****
I'm making this pattern right now. I'm adding about 3-4" to the length b/c I like a longer waist that won't ride up or show skin when I lift my arms. I love this yarn!!! It's beautiful and VERY forgiving!!! Using size 5 meddles and is taking longer than I'd like but I'll push through. Send pic when I finish. Can't wait!!!!!
