12 sts + 16 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in Lace 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.

Cross between a poncho and a capelet Reviewed by Jane Kamper on 2014-04-01 ****
I made this poncho in Wool-ease Chunky Willow color. I found the pattern to be easy to follow, however I did need 3 balls of yarn to make a small. I checked my gauge before starting the project as well, so I would just get 3 balls of yarn to be safe. I am not sure how I feel about the back being straight across, instead of matching the front like a traditional poncho. I posted pictures so that you can see for yourself.
