11 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) 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.

Painted Circle Scarf Reviewed by Lydia MacKenzie on 2013-02-25 ***
For those of us who don't already know how to knit short rows, tried this pattern and simply turned the work and wondered why it wasn't working, here are some helpful videos from youtube to explain how to knit short rows.

This one explains the 'wrap' and is actually for a scarf

This one uses Lion Brand yarn and mentions that the wrap requires pulling the yarn to the front.
