A little help here.
Wednesday, May 9, 2007
Okay so I am thinking about knitting the Lolita Stockings with the yarn my Secret Pal got me. Now... first question: Do you think the socks will look right with the colorway ? Second Question: In the pattern when it refers to gauge. What the hell is this ?!?!

20 sts/??? rows = 4" in stockinette stitch

Like seriously, could they have been any less of a help here.

Anyone know of any cute long sock patterns that are easy ? I don't like short socks and I have only one pair of ankle socks that I wear when all the laundry is dirty.

    Well, when you knit St. stitch you knit one side and then purl the other, (I'm sure you're saying duh right now). But gauge means, you actually take a ruler and measure out 4" across the swatch you knitted and see if 20 stitches fit inside those 4". Is that what you're asking?

    Sorry, bet you're wondering who spunstitches was...that's me. Oh I checked it out and 20 sts/???rows = 4" means that she doesn't really know how many rows there are so she couldn't really measure it. I'm guessing. Usually it's something like 20sts/15 rows = 4" square. 15 rows up and 20 stitches across.

    Hmmm, here's my guess. Either the row gauge doesn't matter much or like teresa said, she wasn't sure. And you have to just figure out what needle size will get you the 20 sts per inch gauge. So try like a 6 or something and then go from there. :D

    I'm thinking the row gauge doesn't matter. It's construction doesn't seem require a row gauge.
