I am trying to knit some socks using a loom. The pattern says to measure my foot then multiply that number by the gauge of 7. What does that mean? I am then supposed to subtract 15% of that number and the remaining number is the amount of pegs I am supposed to use.
Does multiply by the gauge of 7 just mean multiply by 7?
Am I subtracting the 15% of that number from the original measurements or the number I get after multiplying by the gauge of 7?
