Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 12 sts + 16 rows (about 4 inch or 10 cm) over pattern to knit this shawl that is about 24 inch x 60 inch (61 cm x 152-1/2 cm) at widest and longest points. 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 match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
