24 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Lace Pattern.

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.

Shimmery Shawl Reviewed by Elise Baker on 2012-12-21 ****
The pattern is wonderful for a first-time lace-knitter like myself. One observation - there seems to be an inconsistency in the pattern. There are six pattern rows that form the stair-step design: 1, 5, 9, 13, 17, and 21.

Rows 5 and 21 are the same.
Rows 9 and 17 are inverses of each other (3-2-1 pattern on 9 and 1-2-3 on 17.)
Rows 1 and 13 are completely unrelated to each other by stitch count (5-3 on 1, 4-4 on 13).

This causes a slight 'hiccup' in the pattern that has mildly bothered me through the knitting, but I'm too close to Christmas to figure out if 1 should have been inverted, or should have been identical to 13.
