In order to make sure that your sock fits, you’re going to want to make a gauge swatch with your yarn. Doing so is going to let us know how the yarn wants to be treated and give us our gauge measurements so that we cast on the right number of stitches. Now, of course you can make a circular gauge swatch, but I’m gonna show you how to make a faux circular gauge swatch as it uses less yarn and takes less time.
