    I use this method: http://bigserious.hubpages.com/hub/Why-to-Knit-a-Gauge-Swatch-and-How-to-Do-It

    The Otto bumps were a trick I learned from, I think, tentenknits. Either her or Debbie holler. I’m actually insure now. Lol! But I’ve learned my lesson, and I swatch 85% of the time now.

    I love the Swift Stitch. It’s one of my favorite yarn stores and I always make time for a visit when I’m in town visiting my family. Anyway, I would also recommend washing and blocking your swatch in the same fashion you plan to wash and block your finished piece. Every yarn type is different meaning some will grow with blocking, and thus changing your gauge. Good luck!
