Stupid Gauge Question

OK, this is probably a very stupid question coming from the Administrator of this KAL, but... I seem to have misplaced my copy of Knitscene with the pattern in it. I already re-wrote and charted it in the round so I have the "pattern" but what I don't have is the gauge. I just knit a swatch and washed, blocked and measured it—about time, eh?—and have my gauge established, but I don't know what the target gauge is.

Can anyone tell me what the pattern's gauge recommendation is and also the biggest size and how many to cast on?


Horribly Embarrassed

17 sts and 24 rows = 4" in St st on larger needles (US 8, in the pattern).

Ooops, sorry...

The biggest size is 48" bust

CO 110 stitches for the back, 52 stitches each front with smaller needles (US 6 in the pattern).
