    Use a gauge of 9-1/2 sts and 19 rows (about 4 inch) over Garter St to knit a throw that measures 49-1/2 inch square and a pillow that measures 19-1/2 inch square. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you less stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size needle or hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle or hook.
