Let's talk fiber!

If you need to substitute with an other yarn and are not sure what to look for here are some tips...

What you will look for between labels

Is the weight the same?

Are the fibers similar, such as Acrylic, wool, alpaca, nylon, etc.?

Is the gauge similar or close enough to make it work?

Are the recommended hook sizes the same?

Another piece of information you can look for is the number of wpi (wraps per inch). This information is not always available so me be more difficult to compare.

Do you know these stitches and abbreviations?

  • St- stitches Ch- Chain Sc- single crochet
  • DC- double crochet
  • SS- slip stitch
  • FO- finish off

Special Stitches

  • CrDC- crossed double crochet.
  • DC INC- double crochet increase.

Gauge and measurements

14 sc x 4 rows of sc = 1” X 1” or 2.54cm X 2.54cm W- 8” H- 8”

**May need blocked to reach the proper Height and Width**

Other things you should know before starting...

While working the graph portion, you will need to CH 1 at the beginning of each round. This chain DOES NOT count as a stitch.
