A gauge is very simple to use. If the pattern calls for a 1 by 1 inch stitch gauge and says they have 4 stitches per inch, you make a gauge and measure it to see if you get the same amount of stitches per inch.

If you get MORE than 4 stitches you would want to go DOWN one hook size

If you get LESS than 4 stitches you would want to go UP one hook size

Then make another gauge and re-measure to see if it’s a better size hook for you to use for your project.

I love to teach! As time has gone by I have improved my teaching methods but my upgrade of my equipment is very slow. Most money I make goes to every month bills and yarn supplies. I have just reached over 100k subscribers and I am feeling with the ever growing number that I really need to step up my game, but I need your help. All my content will still be free, this just gives you a chance to support me in what I do, so that I can make the best videos possible for you to learn from. I wish I could do it all myself but I am only one person. So I need you, my most loyal fans, to stand up and help me improve the channel. http://www.patreon.com/meladorascreations
