GAUGE:

10 sts = 4 inches (10 cm) in double crochet with larger sized hook
Square measures 11 inches (28 cm) square

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.

Lacey Blues Throw Reviewed by Blythe Quelin on 2011-09-02 *****
I love this pattern! I made it in Tudor the first time and completely love how it turned out. I had lots of yarn left over, so I made 25 squares instead of 20. Then, of course, I had to go out and buy an extra ball of yarn, but it wasn't a big deal as dye lot isn't crucial with the painterly yarns.

I don't have the patience to sew squares together, so it took me a year between finishing the squares and sewing the afghan together. The second time, I did only 16 squares and crocheted them together as I went along. The extra rounds from crocheting the squares together made the second afghan big enough and used up all the yarn.

I think I've figured out a way to make this crocheting the squares together but without using as much extra yarn, so I should be able to do the next one with 20 squares according to the pattern.
