14 1/2 sc + 15 rows = 4 in. (10 cm). 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


You can easily customize the size of your Garland. Simply make more or fewer Flags and a shorter or longer Chain as desired. If you opt to make more Flags and a longer Chain, you may require additional yarn.

FLAG (make 9 - 3 each with A, B, and C)
Ch 2.
Row 1: Work 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook - 2 sc at the end of this row.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, 2 sc in each st across - 4 sc at the end of this row.
Rows 3 and 4: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across.
Row 5: Ch 1, turn, 2 sc in first st, sc in each st across to last st, 2 sc in last st - 6 sc at the end of this row.
Rows 6-23: Repeat Rows 3-5 six times - 18 sc at the end of Row 23.
Round 24: Do not turn, work sc evenly spaced around entire outside edge of Flag; join with sl st in first sc.
Fasten off.


With A, make a ch that measures about 72 in. (183 cm) long.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Fasten off.
Sew Flags to Chain in following color sequence: B, C, A, B, C, A, B, C, A.
Weave in ends.

Reviewed by Emily Smith on 2012-10-16 *****
I really loved this pattern. It worked up very quickly and is so easily customizable to different sizing and colors. I used 10 pink, 10 orange and 10 yellow flags for my banner, for my sister's baby shower. I stopped at the 16 sc row on each flag and I thought they were plenty big. Also, to attach them all together, I chained 20 with white, attached with a sc in the corner of the flag, chained 2 and then attached with a sc on the 3rd sc from my last stitch (skipped 2), and repeated that across the top of the flag, then chained 10 in between each flag. I didn't measure yet, but the full length ended up much longer than I had expected. Overall, this pattern was exactly what I was looking for. It was a great travel project too! Thanks a lot!!
