OK all you stitcher gurus-I bought this mainly to check needle sizes-which I know how to do-but how do I use this to check swatch gauge? It did not come with any instructions. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I've never seen this one before. It says to set points at 10 stitches. so you porbably put the left handpoint on stitch one, then move the right hand point to the 10th stitch, then look at the number of stitches indicated at the top of the right hand point. Perhaps you can contact Boye for instructions on the stitch per inch part. If it works well it could be very handy.

Found this page with instructions on how to use the stitch gauge part.

Boye Accessories Plastic Knit Gauge Count 10 Plus is a
handy tool that will help you know what needle size to use
and how many stitches per inch you should get.
It will determine your gauge quickly and easily.

Count out 10 stitches on your gauge swatch and place the 0 line of the Count 10 Plus at the first stitch.
Now slide the Stitches per inch marker to the outside of the 10th stitch and read your gauge!


Can also be used to count rows per inch and size knitting needles.
If you knit or crochet, this tool is a must-have!

I just bought one of those, my old metal one has gotten bent and the printing has worn off. I just wish it had a ruler printed on it too.

You got a good one that has a variety of uses, especially if you need to swatch for gauge.

You could add ruler markings by lining up a regular ruler next to the slot and scratching in the inch markings. Then put a dab of colored nail polish on the scratches. This will give you a way to count rows or stitches per inch using the slot.
