Robin Stroot: Getting the Gauge in Knitting, Crochet Patterns | Opinion

Many crafting patterns contain information about the final size of the garment or home decor item. This allows the artisan to determine whether the item will fit a particular size (eg a garment) or a particular area (eg an afghan).

Besides the finished measurements, other relevant information about the pattern includes the type of fiber or fabric used for the pattern, notions such as buttons/zippers or other closure embellishments.
