Learn the importance of checking your gauge and how to adjust patterns to fit the gauge you actually get! In this workshop, we will compare gauge swatches knit by different knitters. This class is most appropriate for an advanced beginner who is able to knit, purl, and cast on independently. We gauge this workshop to be a 10 out of 10!
