GAUGE:

About 4.75 hdc = 4 in. [10 cm] with 2 strands of yarn held together. Due to the nature of the fabric when working with a Speed Hook, gauge may vary throughout the crocheting and is not crucial to this project. EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT.
When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

BLANKET With 2 strands of yarn held together, ch 50.
Row 1: Hdc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across - 48 hdc.
Row 2: Ch 2, turn, hdc in each hdc across.
Repeat last row until piece measures 12 in. [30.5 cm] from beg.
Next Row (turning row): Ch 2, turn, hdc in back loop of each hdc across.
Next Row: Ch 2, turn, hdc in each hdc across.
Repeat last row until piece measures 72 in. [183 cm] from beg. Fasten off.

FINISHING
Fold piece along turning row. Tack each corner of folded section to wrong side of Blanket. Weave in ends.
