Welllllll...I looked at the "row gauge" given in my MissBB pattern.
It is knit with worsted wt yarn, and uses a US8 needle.
The row gauge given in the pattern states: 24rows=4".
Let me work this out again. Maybe I misstated the inches.
So, 6 rows would equal 1".
64 rows divided by 6 is 10.66.
At the gauge given in my MissBB pattern...64 rows of st st would measure 10.66" tall.
Well, I think that is right.
So 5" was wrong. :wall:Doh.
