Sample text

Many sweater patterns allow for your row gauge being off a little by telling you to work to the desired length in inches, regardless of how many rows it takes you to get there. However, if your stitch gauge is off, your sweater may be too wide or too narrow, and that’s something you can’t adjust without tearing out all of your hard work and at least some of your hair. Note: The yarn manufacturer may also recommend a particular gauge on the yarn label. This gauge may be quite different from the one in your pattern, but that’s okay.

Different publications may use different names for stitches. Crochet isn’t standardized, so you may encounter names you don’t recognize. The pattern’s stitch descriptions should clear up any confusion. ✓ Check to see whether you’re working from a British or an American pattern before you begin. Patterns published in Great Britain and Australia, as well as some patterns published in Canada, use different terminology for even the basic stitches. For example, they call the American single crochet a double crochet and the American double crochet a treble crochet.

Ruler and tape measure: These tools are necessary when measuring for gauge (see Chapter 3) and for measuring your work in progress. Try to find a ruler and tape measure that feature both standard and metric measurements. ✓ Rustproof straight pins: These pins are absolutely necessary when pinning down a project that you’re going to block (meaning shape; see Chapter 19). After putting so much time into your project, it’d be a shame to ruin it by failing to use rustproof pins and ending up with reddish-brown spots throughout your creation.
