Gauge help


I need help with the gauging, I don’t understand what it means.


It says
22 stitches to 4 rows DK weight yarn.

don’t I need to know how much space this is going to take up??

Help appreciated!

im guessing it should say 22 stitches to 4 inches rather than to 4 rows as I can’t imaging what sort of yarn would give you a measurement of 22 stitches and 4 rows over any length!

thx for your swift reply! I did a little sample and it did measure ~4inches
