Is anyone having trouble reaching the gauge?  I can get the 20 stitches correctly but I only get 24 rows instead of the required 34 rows with size 6 needles?  I am using Knit Picks CotLin DK weight yarn.

 I switched yarn choice to Berroco's Weekend DK, which I love.  It is very cottony feeling but is mostly acrylic.  Anyhow,I also can get the 20 stitches but get 30 rows.  When I knit I usually don't worry too much about the number of rows because you can always add or subtract from the length.  I don't know how that will work out with this ruched yoke, though.  I would like someone to explain how to get the correct stitches AND rows--it seems one or the other is always off for me.

I need to wash my swatch before I do a final gauge check.  I am using a completely different yarn, so will just adjust my numbers accordingly.  My unwashed swatch with Casino II (cotton/rayon blend yarn) was 22 stitches x 26 rows.  I will just adjust the rows, by knitting more rows between each element to produce the correct size.  BUT first I wash, since I expect that it will grow in width and shrink in length after a few washings!

I just want to make sure this is the official thread.  I want to join up for the knit along.  I am not sure if we are supposed to have started already but I am up to the second ruched band.  Working with Debbie Bliss Prima in a lovely blue.

Good Luck!

I did when I used the size 6...same issues.  I switched to a 5 and still got the 20 st, but I increased the rows to 30 that was before I washed and dried and it stayed the same after I washed and dried it.  I'm sticking with that.

THE OFFICIAL THREAD IS OVER HERE:  http://www.knittingdaily.com/forums/t/18529.aspx

 And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen.   Ex. 35:25
