I have not knitted in a while and I can't remember how to figure out how many stitches I need to cast on to do my swatch. Here are the pattern instructions:
[COLOR=black][B]Pattern InstructionsMy gauge: two motifs=5.75″ across, unstretched. 10 st per motif plus 1, plus four ribbing stitches each edge of the afghan.Yarn: I used a cashmere/superfine lambswool yarn I’d six-plied from cones to make a yarn on the heavy side of aran weight. Swatch with your own yarn to get the right fit between yarn and needles.[/B][/COLOR]
This, I'm sure is an easy one, but I'm drawing a blank. I tried this a few different ways but each time I end up with not enough stitches. Here is a link to the pattern as well.
