a world of crochet and knitting
japanese charted patterns "Gauge is always given in stitches and rows per 10 cm, rather than stitches and rows per inch. This may be confusing to knitters in the USA, but really isn't as bad as it seems. 10 cm is nearly the same as 4". Usually dividing by 4 will give you a usable gauge."
