How to Knit a Swatch

How To Knit A Swatch

A typical swatch is 20 stitches by 40 rows. But the bigger swatch you can make the better.

Also, it is usually best to use the same stitch in your swatch that you are going to be using in the piece. Like use the particular lace stitch, color st, etc. Or if it is plain stockinette st or garter st, use that.
