In this episode…

You’ll learn how you can use gauge to change the width of a project if, for example, you have a baby blanket pattern but you want to make a lap blanket.

You don’t have to guess how many chains to make when you want to change the width of a project.

Instead of guessing, chaining and frogging over and over until you get it right, use the approach a designer uses to create the pattern. So the next time you find yourself wishing you could make this project a little narrower or that project a little wider, now you’ll be able to do it! By making a quick swatch and taking a measurement, you can use simple math to adjust the width of any project – a must know skill for any crocheter!
