Before starting your next project, we recommend making a 10x10 swatch in the stitch and the number of rows as indicated in the pattern. With this knitted or crocheted swatch, you can count the number of stitches and rows you get in 10 centimeters. In this way, you can check if your swatch matches the gauge of the one indicated in the pattern. If you get more stitches and rows, repeat the swatch with a larger crochet hook or larger needles. If, on the other hand, you get fewer stitches and rounds, repeat the swatch with a smaller crochet hook or thinner needles. Ultimately, it is important that your swatch matches the one indicated in the pattern because the explanations in the magazines are calculated based on these numbers of stitches and rows.
