GAUGE:

11 half double crochet = 4 in. (10 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

STRIPS 1 and 5
With A, chain 25.
Row 1: Half double crochet in 3rd chain from hook and each chain across - 24 stitches.
Rows 2-16: Chain 2, turn, half double crochet in each stitch across.
Change to B, and work 16 rows in half double crochet.
Change to C and work 16 rows in half double crochet.
Change to D and work 16 rows in half double crochet.
Change to A and work 16 rows in half double crochet.
Change to B and work 16 rows in half double crochet.
Fasten off.

STRIP 3
Work as for Strip 1, first working 16 rows with C, then 16 rows with D, 16 rows with A, 16 rows with B, 16 rows with C, and 16 rows with D. Fasten off.

 

STRIP 4

Reviewed by mjarvis1948 on 2014-03-23 *****
I like this pattern. Easy to do. I've used the Homespun and Homespun Thick and Quick for 2 to 3 years now. Love the way it looks and feels. A word of advice when using this yarn. Yes, it has a tendency to "snag ". The trick is to hold your crochet hook as loosely as possible. And hold the yarn loosely too. If you do this , it won't snag nearly as much.
