12 sc + 12 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) with larger hook.

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.

Team USA Mittens Reviewed by John Primrose on 2014-11-12 ****
Wonderful pattern! Easy and quick to crochet. Only there seems to be a glaring mistake; I believe the pattern is missing a switch to the larger hook between the cuff and the body. Excellent design, though!
