  • For this pattern, the stitch gauge is more important than the row gauge.
  • If you cannot get both stockinette stitch and colorwork gauge using the same needle, try using different size needle for one of them.
  • The listed measurement around the head is based on stitch count of colorwork section. To get that exact measurement, it is more important to have the correct colowork stitch gauge.
