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

Baby Bunting Reviewed by Cathy VanderPloeg on 2014-05-25 *
Very confusing! Besides row 11 not adding up, plus you loose three stitches by 'knitting together' three times, where's the directions for the flap from the back that comes to the front at the left shoulder? Would assume you'd bind off a portion of back and then cary on with forming the flap.
