6 hdc = 3 in [7.6 cm]. 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


Wrap is worked from side to side, not bottom up. Number of chains to begin is the same for fronts and back.

Ch 65 (71).
Row 1: Hdc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across.
Row 2 (RS): Ch 2, turn. Hdc in each hdc across.
Rep Row 2 until piece measures 40 (44) in. [101.5 (112) cm] from beg. Fasten off.
Work as for Back until piece measures 16 (18) in. [40, (45) cm] from beg.

Urban Wrap Reviewed by Denise Weik on 2014-06-30 ****
I made this pattern but changed it completely by using
changes mentioned in the reviews. "Boring stich work" and changed yarn to Homespun, vs. 4 ply.
First I changed the stiches used, I made the first 2 rows and last 2 rows HDC then changed to a modified "forget me not" stich (1 single and 2 double crochet stiches in the same loop, skip two loops and repeat in third across to end with 1 one single crochet). Used 80 stiches across and then 35 stiches across for each side.
Then built up collar with 2 rows of HDC then one row of Forget Me Not stich and continued it down the front edge of each side. Please reply if you need pattern written better, Thanks.
