Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 6-1/2 sts + 5 rows (about 4 inch or 10 cm) to crochet this hoodie. 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 (10 cm) square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
