Gauge Your Gauge

Always, ALWAYS gauge your gauge! It’s extremely critical as we all know, or should know. I’m guilty for not checking my gauge with my crochet projects. I know; give me a failing grade. “F!” But, I do know that I should always use two crochet hook sizes smaller than the one mentioned in the pattern. Well… I didn’t do that this time around…

Remember the Fall Poncho I posted about a few days ago? Embarrassingly, it came out slightly off in size (with respect to the front of it). The front of the poncho is about three inches longer than the back. *Sigh.* If you ask why, I can give you one major reason:  lack of focus. Should have followed rule number four on my Zen List!

Anyhoo, don’t be a Debra Lee! Check your gauge before starting your crochet project, and even pay attention to how it’s coming to together. If your baby booty looks abnormally huge, unravel, go down a hook size, and try again.

Best wishes on your new crochet project!
