Gauge

D Fair Isle Cardigan & Helmet d

Gauge - the number of stitches and rows per inch - is the key
to a well-fitting garment. In the pattern, we have specified a
gauge; it is essential that you achieve this gauge in working
the garment. Before beginning the garment, take the time to
work a gauge swatch in the pattern stitch, and with the yarn
and needles specified. Change to a larger or smaller needle if
necessary to achieve gauge.
