    Row Gauge Woes

    I’m currently up against my old nemesis...row gauge (height). I can usually get gauge when it’s just a matter of stitches per inch (width). This is usually sufficient for any pattern where you just have to crochet “until X inches long”. However, my row height tends to be short. I’m working on a pattern where I have to crochet diagonal SC squares. Because my rows are too short, they’re coming out more like diamond shapes. If I go up a hook size, then the stitches per inch (width) is off. Does anyone have any good tips for making higher rows?
  2. HI! My name's April. I live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. I just started teaching myself to crochet a couple of weeks ago using a book and some YouTube. I've made a couple of hats and some flowers and jewelry wraps. I'M IN LOVE! I'm struggling with getting the right gauge. Typically, I stitch to tightly. It's quite frustrating and I'm trying to figure out how to fix it. I love finding new patterns. I'm currently working on a ribbed hat that has a braided effect for my 16 year old son. I was so worried about it being too small that I went up a hook size and tried to loosen my stitches. Now, I'm afraid it may be too big. *Fingers crossed* that it turns out okay. I look forward to meeting other crochet lovers and learning tips and tricks from y'all.

    Gauge Help!

    Hi! I am having a difficult time understanding the gauge for my pattern. This pattern uses two hooks which they refer to as "smaller" and "larger." This is what the Gauge says: 12 sts = 4" (10cm); 8 rows = 3" (7.6cm) in dc with larger hook. Should the 12 stitches be done with the larger hook? On the yarn label itself, it says that a 4" with a 5.5 crochet hook should be 12 sc across and 15 rows. The second part of the gauge is confusing me. How can I fit 8 rows of double crochet into 3 inches? That just doesn't make sense to me. Thanks in advance!!
