12 stitches and 15 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in single crochet. 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.

To change color, work the last stitch of the old color to the last yarn over, yarn over with the new color and draw through all the loops on hook to complete stitch.

Fasten off the old color.


Work 8 rows with A, 4 rows with B, 2 rows with C, 8 rows with D.

Repeat these 22 rows for Color Sequence.

With A, chain 29.

Row 1: Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across - 28 single crochet.

Row 2: Chain 1, turn, single crochet in each single crochet across.

Repeat last row, changing colors following Color Sequence, until piece measures 10 in.

(25.5 cm) from beginning.

Fasten off.

Weave in ends.
