15 sts = 4-inches [10cm] in Lace Pattern. Be sure to check your gauge.
Note: 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. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4-inch [10cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
