8.5 sts = 4 inches in Garter st (k every row)
Row gauge will vary according to yarns and st pattern used.
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
A circular needles used to accommodate the large number of stitches. Stitches are worked back and forth in rows.
Editor’s Note: When creating fringe using Homespun please note that because of the texture of the yarn the fringe will fray when cut. If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends,
crochet a fringe, or use hairspray or fray check.
With A, cast on 139 sts loosely. Work in Garter st (knit every row) in stripe sequence as follows: 3 rows A, 3 rows using 1 strand each of B and C held tog, 3 rows using 1 strand each
