lion brand yarn knit crochet gauge swatch How To: Knit or Crochet Gauge Swatches
Does the idea of swatching make you want to swear off knitting needles and crochet hooks forever? Have no fear! Check out this knit and crochet gauge swatch tutorial from Lion Brand Yarn, and learn how to get the fit perfect you’ve been waiting for!

I admit it: I used to cheat at gauge swatches. I would cast on, work a few rows, then assume I was good to go. Of course, my projects never came out the right size (and I have the ill-fitting sweaters to prove it)! Since then, I’ve decided that I prefer sweaters that fit, so now I’m a believer in the gauge swatch. Not only does a swatch help you measure your gauge, but it also gives you the chance to practice your stitches and see how your project will drape.

Sound good? Head over to Lion Brand Yarn to see the full how-to!
