15 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). 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

With A, cast on 74 sts.
Work in St st (k on RS, p on WS) until piece measures about 5 1/2 in. (14 cm) from beg, end with a WS (purl) row.
Note: End with a WS row means that the last row you work should be a WS row, you will be ready to work a RS row.
Shape Crown
Next (Decrease) Row (RS):
K8, k2tog, *pm, k2tog, k14, k2tog; rep from * 2 more times, pm, k2tog, k to end - 66 sts rem at end of row.

Mocha Latte Cap Reviewed by Ciera Atkins on 2013-05-27 *****
Perfect pattern for a newbie. Quickly knits up.
I didn't have size 9 needles, so I used size 10 instead. Worked fine and I just knitted the main part of the hat to 5" instead of 5 1/2" so it wouldn't be too long. Came out great and fits close to the head.
