How to calculate gauge
Hello...I am starting another project (Lace up Fingerless Gloves from Alter Knits book) and I don't know how to count the gauge. The women at the LYS have usually done it for me. How can I figure it out myself. I can count the rows but the stitches is what I am not sure about. Do I count each V as two? or one? :thinking:

Each V is one stitch.

Here is a good article on swatching.

I usually don't block, either.
