18 stitches & 32 rows/rounds = 4” in stockinette stitch or Texture Pattern with Size A needle(s), after blocking
Note: Correct length of the one-piece yoke is dependent upon achieving the stated row/round gauge.
Size A (for Main Fabric)
One each 24” and 32” circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs) in size needed to obtain gauge listed
Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6)
Size B (for Ribbing)
One each 16”, 24” and 32” circular needle and one set of DPNs, one size smaller than Size A
Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)
Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On only)
One 32” circular needle and one set of DPNs, one size smaller than Size B
Suggested Size: 3½ mm (US 4)
32” circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (i.e., Sleeves).
Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
