Knitting a Flat Swatch and Blocking

This is Part 2 on swatches and stitch gauge. In this video I knit a flat swatch and block both swatches. Knowing your stitch gauge is critical to the success of your sweater, whether you’re designing it yourself or using someone else’s pattern. Ask around–the more experienced the knitter, the bigger the swatch they’ll knit. Think of the time you spend knitting a swatch as an investment in the success of your sweater.
