  • Step 1

    To measure gauge you are going to make a gauge swatch. You are going to want to block your swatch so it will lay flat. Take a t-pin and place it between one of the stockinette rows. Then take a flat ruler and put the end of your ruler next to the t-pin and place your other pin at the 4 inch mark. Then you are going to count the number of stitches between the t-pins. Divide number of stitches counted by number of inches measured. For vertical row gauge you are going to want to do the same thing. Mark a stitch with a t-pin somewhere in the middle of the bottom of the row. Then take a flat ruler and put the end of your ruler next to the t-pin and place your other pin at the 4 inch mark. Then you are going to count the number of stitches in the row between the t-pins. Divide number of stitches counted by number of inches measured.
