    I know this is an old post, but I just found it when I searched for “measuring lace gauge.” Thank you for this clear and detailed description of how to measure gauge in lace knitting. This is something I’ve tried to figure out in the past and wasn’t very successful at (and truthfully it didn’t matter because I was mostly making scarves, cowls, etc. where gauge wasn’t critical) This post provides such a clear and simple way to measure. Now I can make the all over lace sweater I’ve been drooling over and it will fit because I know how to more accurately check my gauge!

    Thanks for a great post! I love the idea of measuring gauge based on the width of a lace panel rather than number of stitches over 4 inches. Much easier!
