Gauge
22 sts and 30 rounds to 10cm / 4in over colourwork pattern and stockinette in the round using gauge-size needle. If your gauge tends to tighten when working small circumferences or colourwork, you may need to go up a needle size for sleeves and yoke. Use 4mm needle as a starting point for swatching.
