Checking Your Gauge

Checking Your Gauge

So guys, I have a confession.I am a... dun dun dun...

LOOSE KNITTER.

I know, I know. It's been a real struggle. All of my knits end up way too big, and honestly, I historically just haven't cared enough to check my gauge and avoid ending up with a gigantic yeti sweater... oops.

But, even though I'm out of school, my year still starts in September. So, #NewYearNewMe, I'm trying to fix my loose-knitting ways one gauge swatch at a time.

Here's a tutorial on how to check your gauge... We can do it together.

I also found this written tutorial super helpful. It also clued me in on this amazing gif, which is literally how I feel every time I get gauge.
