GAUGE:

26 sts + 32 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd).

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.

Luxurious Wristlets Reviewed by Cecelia Smail on 2014-04-05 ****
These wristlets are an ambitious project with a very lovely result. Each row required careful attention to the pattern. This is not a quick project and I confess I did not gift them away as planned.This is a knit that a knitter appreciates.
