Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®
10 stitches + 13 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in 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.

Curious sizing. Good thing the finished size was included. First try was about 12X22 using size 13 needles. Switched to size 15 and got about 14x24. Wound up having to add five more stitches (one pattern) to width and two more rows to each pattern or eight total rows. Used the Mesquite color. Turned out fine after adjustments but would have frustrated a novice knitter.
