Is there a different way to check your tension when doing Lace knitting?

What does the pattern say? I've seen patterns say gauge measured over 10cm stocking stitch
Or worked in pattern, but washed and blocked before measuring.
I think if it only gives a tension square guide worked in stocking st then it's assumed that your lace will naturally follow and the pattern itself will have allowed for any change in size due to the lace content.

My tension is fine :thumbup: :thumbup: but i don't make these easy, ive had to buy more yarn and when looking i cant find the same dye lot :curse: :curse: . So im going to use the old and new yarn, the lace bit which is on the bottom half will be old yarn and the top half and sleeves will be the new yarn :thumbup: :thumbup:. Arrr the joys of knitting :lol: :lol:
