GAUGE:

8 sts + 12 rows = 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Yo (yarn over)
An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.

NOTES:

Topper is worked in one piece then folded and seamed.

Emily Bronte Topper Reviewed by Ernestine Barnes on 2014-03-24 *****
Fills the bill for so many uses. I am making the latest one now for a first-time mother to wear when she feeds the newborn in the middle of the night. She will feel cozy and loved as she cuddles her infant under it's oh-so-soft rows of Granite Stripes Homespun Thick and Quick.
