Earth Block Afghan
Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®
One Block = 14 in. (35.5 cm) Square. 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.
BLOCK (make 12 – 4 each with A, B and C) Chain 24.
Row 1: Half double crochet in third chain from hook and in each chain across – 22 half double crochet.
Rows 2–16: Chain 2, turn. Half double crochet in each stitch across.
FINISHING Following Assembly Diagram, sew Blocks together.
Weave in ends.

I used an N hook, 10mm and did 12 rows, it makes a square with the chain of 22. However, I already used 14 skeins! What did I do wrong? I count and will need about 30 squares to make a medium sized afghan. I still need to buy more yarn!
