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" .
