    Use a gauge of 13 sc and 14 rows (4 inch) to crochet a blankie that measures 18 inch square. 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 Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere. Special abbreviation: Sc2tog = Draw up a loop in each of the next 2 sts. Yoh and draw trhough all loops on hook
