5 sts = 3 in [7.6 cm] in half double crochet. 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.

Urban Wrap Reviewed by Denise Weik on 2014-06-30 ***
I liked this pattern, found stitch boring so I changed the pattern. The first 2 rows and the last 2 rows of the back and each front piece are done in (80 stitches for the back) HDC, but the rest is done in a "forget me not" stitch which is, chain 3 on last HDC turn, do 2 DC in same starting stitch, and skip to 3rd stich from starting chain, then in same stitch, 1 sc, 2 dc skip to 3rd stitch and repeat to end of first row, you should end on a single crochet, chain 3 and turn start over from begining. I made each front piece 35 stitches wide.
I build the collar up with 2 rows of HDC and one row of 'forget me knot' stich connect down the front of each side of the opening. This gives the piece pazazz.
All done (9 skeins)in Lion brand homestyle, I have made 5 of these friends love them.
