I am knitting a gauge swatch for the Sporty Pullover sweater found in the
Knitting Man(ual) by Kristen Spurkland. The gauge is 21 sts and 27 rows=4" in
main pattern, 17 sts and 25 rows = 4" in St st.
the main pattern is : k4 (sl1 pwise, k1, YO, psso the k1 and YO, k3) to last st, k1.
I can count the stocking stitch gauge just fine, but how do I count the stitches in the main pattern?? the yarn over makes it very difficult to count. Any suggestions? I don't want to get the gauge wrong in the main pattern because I want it to FIT (of course!)...can I just knit the gauge in St st and trust that?
