8 sts = about 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.
Large hook is used to create an open fabric that will easily stretch to fit a range of sizes.
SHRUG Ch 85. Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across – 84 sts. Row 2: Ch 1, turn, working in back loops only, sc in each st across. Repeat Row 2 until piece measures about 38 in. (96.5 cm) from beginning.
FINISHING Fold piece in half to measure 21 x 38 in. (53.5 x 96.5 cm). Place markers on each of the 21 in. (53.5 cm) sides, 7 in. (18 cm) below fold for armholes. Seam sides from markers down to lower edge. Weave in ends.

Very fast - I used the pattern diagram measurements and a chunky weight yarn to make one. It only took two evenings of TV watching and it's adorable! The back loop working really allows for stretch. Going to make another in a regular weight and add a fancier edging to give as gifts.
