18 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. 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.

Gretna Gauntlets Reviewed by Wendy Thomas on 2015-02-16 *****
This is one of my new favorite patterns!! It is so easy, after the first pair I didn't need the pattern. Made 6 (so far) sets of these with a matching infinity scarf by using same starting pattern (with a hook 1 size larger) and making the piece long enough to make a single or double loop scarf. Super easy, great take along project. Uses very little yarn.
