GAUGE:


Step: 6

16 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in bodice pattern stitch;


Step: 7

17 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in peplum and sleeve pattern stitches. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. 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 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
