My pattern gauge reads:
Gauge: 22 sts = 4" over St st
I am confused b/c I learned gauge as being a stich per inch measurement. So I am unsure of what to do here. I cast on 22 stiches, knit in stocking stich for... I don't know, 4" long? 4" wide? And if I do knit 4" long I still don't know how many stiches per inch I'm supposed to be getting. Please, aweful confused. Thanks!
