14 double crochet + 8 rows = 5 in. (12.5 cm). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. 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. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
To change color work last stitch of old color until 2 loops remain on hook, yarn over with new color and draw yarn through 2 loops on hook to complete the stitch.
