Swatches crocheted and knitted in colour 116 Saffron
Note about gauge: Although the label suggests that you can get a 20 stitch gauge with Santa Cruz, our swatching suggests that 18.5 stitches per 10cm is the firmest that you'd want to go. Any tighter than this and the fabric would be very stiff and firm.
