Wrap tightly so as not to leave any spaces for the yarn to shift around. 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.
FLIP-FLOPS With one strand, wrap the Fun Fur around the outside end of the strap of the flip-flop (close to the heel where the strap starts) and tie a knot.
NOTE: It is prudent to tie the knot at least three times to keep it from slipping.
You may additionally use hot melt glue to secure the yarn, but don't put the glue where it will rub on your feet and be uncomfortable.
Wrap the yarn around and around the strap, pulling it back towards the beginning to make it dense and furry.
Continue to the end of the strap.
When you reach the end of the strap, tie another knot to secure the Fun Fur.
NOTE: It is prudent to tie the knot at least three times to make sure that it will hold.
Secure the knot with a dab of hot melt glue if you wish.
Cut the yarn.
For the second flip flop, make sure to start the yarn on the outside end of the other flip flop in the same color that you started the first so your flip-flops match.
Repeat steps 1 through 4 to complete the second flip flop.
Optional Finish your flip-flops by gluing a large button, rhinestone, or beads to the toe.
