    Use a gauge of 4 sc and 4 rows (about 1 inch) to crochet a coaster that measures about 5 inch wide x 5-1/4 inch tall. Save time, check your gauge. If it takes you less stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size needle or hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle or hook.
