Gauge: 20 sts & 48 rows = 4” / 10cm in garter stitch 
You don’t need to be super exact about gauge as long as you like the knitted fabric with your chosen needle size. If your gauge is looser, you may need a bit more yardage for each color. If your gauge is tighter, you will probably use less than the recommended yardage.

Errata: Abbreviation sk2p = slip 1 knit-wise, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over
