GAUGE:

13 sts + 20 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Zigzag pattern.

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:

1/1 LC (1 over 1 left cross) Slip 1 st to cable needle and hold in front of work, k1, then k1 from cable needle.
1/1 RC (1 over 1 right cross) Slip 1 st to cable needle and hold in back of work, k1, then k1 from cable needle.
M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal strand lying between needles and placing it onto the left needle.
Knit this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.
sl2kp (slip 2-k1-pass slipped sts over)
A double decrease worked as follows:
1. Insert right needle into next 2 sts as if to knit them tog, and slip them from the left needle to the right needle.
2. Knit the next st.
3. With tip of left needle, lift the 2 slipped sts (the 2nd and 3rd sts on the right needle) up and over the knit st (first st on right needle) and off the needle - you have decreased 2 sts.
