Knit a gauge swatch in the cable pattern. Wash and lay flat to dry. If you don’t get gauge, please re-swatch in adjusted needle size until the gauge matches. Students should also bring in a sweater they currently own (doesn’t need to be hand knit) that fits the way they would like their finished sweater to fit.
