I have never made anything where gauge was important but I will be attempting some things soon where I will need to check it. I am sitting here watching Knitty Gritty on DIY network. They are making a sweater and Jennifer says it should be 14 stitches 4 inches. And then she showed another part of the sweater that should be about 10 inches tall. When she layed the measuring tape down on the swatch, she started at “1” and measured to “4” and did the same thing on the body “1” and then “10”. This would only make 3 inches and 9 inches. Is there something different in measuring with knitting? Thanks in advance.
