I want to make this:
I have had the pattern since I started knitting 3 years ago and now I know I can do it. My silly trouble is (and this has kept me from making lots of things) I don’t understand how to do a gauge swatch “in pattern”. I’m sure it’s just what it says but do you squash the ribbing down and count or just hold the ruler over the swatch? I have another pattern that says the same thing but it’s a different stitch pattern and I have never started it because I don’t know how to swatch it!!
Any help would be appreciated!
