When you watch this episode of B.Hooked TV you’ll learn how to use a gauge swatch to make adjustments to a simple pattern so it’s the size you need.
A gauge swatch is the key to pattern grading (having multiple sizes available for one pattern).
So if you find a pattern you love in a different size than you need, you can use gauge to adjust the size of the pattern just as if you were pattern grading yourself.
Since this is the first time we’re talking about this topic, we’ll look at a simple adjustment – when you want to adjust the size of a pattern that’s in rows; what you would do if you need to make a blanket pattern bigger or smaller. By the end of this episode, you’ll know how to take the information from your gauge swatch and use that to figure out how many stitches to make for the width and how many rows to make for the length you need.
