I am working on the homework that I have to do for my first class on Monday. We have to create 4 swatches for gauge measuring.
The first 3 are one a size 6, 9, and 9 needle. We cast on 30 stitches, knit the first 2 rows then use stockinette stitch until the swatch measures 4" long.
The 4th swatch is done on a size 8 needle with a cast on of 30 stitches. We are to do K2, P2 ribbing for this one until it measures 4".
We are not supposed to bind off any of the swatches. We are to either put them on waste yarn or a stitch holder. I am guessing that this is to prevent the swatch from rolling more.
I have 1 swatch done and 3 more to go. Guess I should get back to it. I will get some pictures of them as soon as they are done.
