Circular gauge swatch question
I am using a pattern for a hat and the recommended gauge simply says, "Gauge: 2 inches= 10 sts." It mentions nothing about the number of rows or type of stitch to use for the gauge swatch. Since this pattern is worked in the round, I've started a circular gauge swatch in stockinette stitch. Is this the correct stitch to use and do I not need to worry about the number of rows?
Thank you for your help
