No swatch? No Success!

No matter what you want to knit, knitting a gauge swatch is NOT OPTIONAL!

Without knowing gauge:

  • How do you know how much yarn you need?
  • How are you going to know if the finished item will fit?
  • Determine if you are even going to LIKE the resulting fabric
  • Try out the chosen stitch pattern, maybe it’s too tedious… learn this BEFORE starting to knit
  • Dress the swatch and check for shrinkage, pilling, fading
  • Save time by knowing AHEAD if the yarn will knit easily
Promise me you will master this skill.
