12 chains = 2" in [5 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
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.
Apply nail polish to cut end of yarn.
When polish is tacky, roll yarn end between your fingertips to create a smooth, firm end.
Allow polish to dry.
Slide beads onto yarn in the following order: *A, B, A.
Repeat from * until there are 19 sets of 3 beads each.
Leaving a long tail of yarn, make a slip knot.
Step 1 Chain 15, enlarge last loop on hook enough to pull chain and strung beads through to create a knot.
Step 2 Slide next 3 beads down to knot.
Step 3 Make a slip knot on opposite side of beads as close to the last bead as possible.
Insert crochet hook into loop of knot.
Continue in this manner until all beads have been secured.
Cut yarn leaving a long tail.
Tie ending tail and beginning tail into a square knot.
Trim ends and apply clear polish to cut ends.
