In a 10×10 cm (4×4 in) square you should have 20 sts and 40 rows worked in Garter st. You should have 20 sts and 33 rows working half Garter St, half lacework pattern. The amount of rows is different depending on the stitch pattern. The amount of rows when working lacework gauge will determine the circumference of the bust, so you should make sure you get 33 rows and match both gauges.
