  Knitting Tip: Definition of Gauge  

The term "GAUGE" refers to how many stitches per inch you are creating horizontally and how many rows you are creating vertically with the needle size and yarn you are using.

To make a garment that is the same size as the pattern you want to make, it is important to match the gauge of the design as given.
