GAUGE:

10 sts = 4 inches [10 cm]; 8 rows = 5 inches [13 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.

Openwork Afghan Reviewed by Lois Patterson on 2014-02-11 *****
Not even done with this yet but loving it. Once you get the pattern down, it's quick and easy. Can't wait to finish and make another! My only complaint is....while this yarn is soft and cozy, it's a little tricky to work with and sometimes it's hard to tell where your hook is going and you're not in all the fibers, so slow down and just take a little extra time and it will go well. I also find the lighter colors of this yarn easier to "see" the stitch and work with.
