How to make and Use a Crochet Gauge

A Crochet 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.

About the Author:

Hi I'm Candy from Meladora's Creations and I design crochet patterns and film them for my YouTube channel. I want to start by saying, I am by no means a professional teacher. I figure things out as I go along and I love playing with yarn! This is how I have discovered new crochet stitches. I am a mother of two and I live in Israel presently, but I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I met a man on an online game and became friends and through time we fell in love and I came out here to Israel to be together. From lack of knowing how to speak Hebrew, I had to find a way to help take care of our two kids, so after sharing my crochet projects online and being asked to do a tutorial on one of them, I finally broke down and tried it.
