GAUGE:

16 1/2 sc = 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

NOTES:

Kimono is worked in one piece from lower back edge up to sleeve. Sts are then added to both sides for sleeves and work continues up to back neck. The piece is then divided and the fronts worked separately, one at a time.

I enjoyed making this piece. I added edging around the piece to clean it up a bit. And I made the ties skittle different. I'll make this piece again.
