gauge - help!
I have a fairly simple, and probably a bit stupid, question about gauge. The pattern I want to knit says that my gauge should be 20 stitches and 32 rows equalling 4 inches. But, while my width (nr of stitches) is about 4 inch/10cm, by length is way longer, around 13cm . I was now wondering what exactly I could do about this? I can't take smaller size needles because then my widt is not 4 inch anymore. I don't want to take other wool.
Is there something else I could do to have a correct gauge swatch?
