8 sts = about 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


Popcorn Work 4 dc all in the same st, drop loop from hook, insert hook from front to back in first dc of the 4-dc group just made, return dropped loop to hook and draw it through.
sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

Stardust Hat Reviewed by Sugar Babe on 2014-10-22 ****
This is my favorite pattern. I get so many compliments when I wear this hat. The first one I made was red. The texture and look of the hat makes it stand out. I will be making one in every color and trying different yarn. The next one I make I will increase the rows for a larger band Winters in Chi-Town (Chicago) can be a monster.
