GAUGE:
17 sc + 20 rows = 4 in. (10 cm); 4 shells = 4 in. (10 cm).
When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

SKIRT
Notes:

1. Skirt is worked as a separate piece (rather than as a part of the Bodice) to control waistline fullness.
2. Beg of Skirt is worked in rows to avoid the twisting that is possible with a long beg chain. When 4 rows have been completed, piece is joined and remainder of Skirt is worked in the round to eliminate the need for seaming. Skirt is worked from waist edge to lower edge.
