GAUGE: 20 sts and 32 rows = 10 cm (4”) in Chart A. Or 24 sts and 16 rows in Chart A (2 x 2 pattern repeats) = 12 cm (4¾”) and 5 cm (2”) - After blocking, slightly stretched.
The Pebble (cream) swatch was also blocked rather severely. The gauge unblocked was 22 sts/4”, so I tried a larger needle. However, as with the linen, blocking was a big change. After blocking the gauge was 17sts/4 inches. What I learned was that blocking changed the gauge by five stitches. While I was able to obtain gauge in linen with the suggested needle size, in Pebble I need to go down a needle size. I've decided to knit the Hitofude.in linen, now I just need to decide what size I should knit.
