12 sc = 4 in. (10 cm). 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

Rnd 1: Ch 1, sc in each ch around; do not join – 40 sc. Place marker for beginning of rnd. Move marker up as each rnd is worked.
Rnd 2: Sc in each sc around.
Rep Rnd 2 until piece measures 4 in. (10) cm from beg; sl st in next sc and fasten off.
Join B in same st as join.

Holiday Cheer Stocking Reviewed by Jennifer Willyard on 2011-10-12 ****
This pattern works up very quickly and is very easy.
The only part of the pattern where there might be confusion for a beginner is at the heel.
