Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of about 14 sc x 16 rows (about 4 inch) to crochet a banner with flags that are about 8 inch x 10 inch each and a banner that is about 8 foot in total. Be sure to check your gauge. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size needle or hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle or hook.
