Are your projects turning out too big or small? Or are you use much more or less yarn than a project calls for? You might have a gauge problem. Gauge, or the number of stitches and rows per inch of fabric, is a key attribute of a successful project. We'll discuss the importance of swatching before starting a project and how to adjust your gauge to match pattern requirements. We'll also discuss how you can adjust and customize patterns based on your gauge.
Supplies needed: ~50-100 yards worsted weight yarn and needles recommended on ball band, optional: different sized needles to swatch with and 6" or larger ruler
