Knitting 'Tweed Beret' by Kristen Tendyke and I'm confused on the gauge determination:
Pattern says: Gauge: 17 sts and 27 rows = 4" in St st; 19 sts and 27rows = 4" in 1 x 1 rib, slightly stretched.
Does this mean lengthwise (from cast on sts to last row on needle), or width of the knitted swatch (side to side)?
Thanks to anyone who can clear this up for me :???:
