GAUGE:

16 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Pattern st.

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

Norwegian Wristers Reviewed by Natalie Farah on 2014-10-01 **
I love how these look, but once I finished one and tried it on, it felt like a Chinese finger trap trying to take it off. I also couldn't get the red and white stripes to start right away at the beginning of the pattern. Some more instruction on strand knitting would be helpful.
