Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 16 sc and 20 rows (about 4 inch) to crochet a whale. Remember 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 and rows to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook.
