Gauge swatch uneven

Question

Hello!

I am looking for an article or video or post that would explain why I might have a gauge swatch that is the correct height but too narrow in width. Any recommendations?

Thank you,

Diane

Hi and welcome to the ville!

Width is (in my experience) influenced by the tightness or looseness of our stitch-making.  Height has to do with how far we pull up the loops, which is a little different.

I don't have a link for the tight/loose width part, but here is a video from Crochet Cabana and a blog from Doris Chan regarding stitch height.

I have the opposite problem than you do - I am a 'yanker' on Doris' scale.  Usually height doesn't matter as much as you can often add or subtract rows, but it does make a difference on some things like raglan construction.

Thank you, Granny Square! I will check these resources out. :-)
