Actually the war is with my poor brain. I have just learned from a wise tester for the Gypsy Turban pattern, that
a) flat swatch makes pattern gauge, counting stitches in a stretchy FO gives a way different gauge, and
b) smaller swatch means higher gauge (more stitches/inch), and larger swatch means lower gauge (fewer stitches/inch).
Go figure... and while you're at it, give thanks for wiser knitters and crocheters than yourself.
