GAUGE:

14.8 sts = 4 inches. 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.

Diamonds & Lace Throw Reviewed by Amy Heestand on 2012-09-18 ****
I made this using a dark rose and a light rose color. It took a bit of practice to get the hang of the pattern, and I had lots of notes on my printed copy by the time I was done. My main difficulty was keeping up with where in the pattern I was, especially when I had to put it down for any length of time. I also had to do a lot of stitch counting. I did not do the ruffle because I was running out of yarn; I did a simple shell stitch around instead. It turned out really pretty.
