11 dc = 4 in. (10 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.
|dc2tog (dc decrease) (Yarn over and draw up a lp in next dc, yarn over and draw through 2 lps) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 lps on hook – 1 st decreased. |
