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.

  1. Not understanding, "worked . . . in the round." How does this happen. Would you please explain more in depth. Thank you.

  2. Hello! This is a beautiful cowl that I can't wait to try to make. The yarn you suggest is discontinued, so I've chosen one (or several!) others to try. In some instances, because of differing yarn thickness, or weight, I will have to change needle size. I may have to play around with changes to make this beautiful pattern work with different yarn and needle size and may want to adjust the height and width. Would you please, therefore, tell me the number of stitches in a row? I don't mean "CO 126 stitches". I mean to create the main pattern, does it require 5 stitches + 2 ; or 4 stitches +1; or 6 st + 2; etc. I know how to work in the round, but want to have the correct multiples of stitches to alter this pattern just a bit since the yarn is discontinued. In addition, if you have an updated pattern, I'd love to get it from you. Thanks very much!
