MAKE A SWATCH

MAKE A SWATCH
Once you have selected a pattern stitch , choose a hook and yarn you like .
Make a beginning chain long enough to make a 4" or larger swatch using the correct
amount of multiples for the beginning chain . Crochet in your selected pattern
until you have a square swatch


Measure The Guage.- If you like your pattern stitch swatch, its time to measure
the guage to determine the number of chains needed to design your project. Lay
the swatch right side up, on a flat ,smooth ,surface,Measurethe width of two full repeats of the multiple . Lets say two repeats measure 1". Now do the math .
Example: If two repeats of the multiple measure 1" and there are two chains in one multiple , you know it takes four chains to equal 1" .

Determine the Multiple

Determine the Multiple

This is the first piece of information needed to begin the design
process. The multiple indicates the number of chains required to form one full repeat of the pattern stitch. The multiple of each pattern stitch is listed below.
Example: Let;s say the pattern you selected has multiple of 2+5 chains .The
beginning chain requires any number divisible by 2 . lets say 36 .Then you add
5 more chains for a total of 41 chains.
Hint: Patterns which share the same multiple will not necessarily be interchangeable,because each may produce a different gauge.
