18 sts + 24 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in Moss 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


K2, p2 Rib (worked in the rnd)
Rnd 1:

Electra Leg Warmers Reviewed by Carrie Garner on 2010-12-15 *****
This is the best leg warmer pattern I've found for a beginner. Everything else involves cables and I'm just not to that level yet. I agree with the previous commenter that the stitch pattern is a little boring, but if you use some fun yarn, like Vanna's Glamour, these become far more interesting.

This pattern, in a smaller gauge and with the addition of a thumbhole, can also be easily adapted to a nice wrist warmer.
