GAUGE:
5 sts = 2" measured over fabric that has been smoothed to lay flat, but not stretched. 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.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
CROCHET STITCH

dc variation: Insert hook from right to left through st, yarn over hook and pull loop through, (yarn over hook and pull through 2 loops) twice.

Note: When inserting hook from right to left, hook exits on left where it would normally be inserted for regular double crochet.

St is not worked around lower portion (front post) of previous row's st.
