Gauge help... Please?!

Hello everyone!

So I’m undertaking Haiku on knitty for my cousin’s new baby girl.

The patter says to knit a swatch in garter stitch…how do i measure gauge in garter stitch? each individual stitch? or do i count 2 in a ridge?

I usually do swatches in stockenette…so I’m a little confused.

(*note - i did a search on here for my question and couldn’t find exactly what i was looking for…hopefully you guys can help me out!)


Yes you stilll measure the stitches, the rows are the ridged ones and while you measure each ridge for 2 rows, the stitches are still counted individually, just as they are in stockinette.
