Please read the whole pattern before starting to make sure you have an understanding of how the item is made and if there are anything to consider before starting.
Check your gauge and if needed go up or down a size on your hook.
Your gauge is checked by making a square with the stitch used in the pattern, how many you will start with is usually written in the pattern and then for as many rows as written. If your square is bigger than 10x10cm (4″x4″) you may need to adjust your hook size to a smaller size and if it’s smaller you may need to go up in size. If your gauge is still inaccurate you may need to consider trying another yarn.
When choosing yarn for a pattern I have designed please keep in mind that the same type of yarn can vary in thickness between color batches.
The finished product may vary in size even if your gauge check was spot on. This can happen for a number of reasons. If you are working on your project over several days you may use different tensions when crocheting. For example I always make the soles of slipper or shoes on the same day and even in the same sitting because something as simple as changing my position can mean that I crochet harder. And if I have had a bad or a good day this can also affect how much tension I use while crocheting.
In most patterns you will find the number of stitches you should have when each row or round is finished written within brackets (-).
If not otherwise stated when a number of chains is used to start a round or turn a row these does not count as a stitch. You will therefore have to make your first stitch directly below your chains. See pictures below. (These pictures are from another pattern and is just shown as an example) if the pattern you are currently working on is crocheted in rounds it may look a bit different.
If a round is finished by a slip stitch you will, if not otherwise stated, make the first stitch of the next round in the same stitch as your slip stitch.
Each time you will make a different stitch or number of stitches change it is shown by a , . For example: 1 sc, 2sc in next st, 1 sc in 4 sts. Means that you will make 1 single crochet in your first stitch, in your next stitch you will make 2 single crochets in the same stitch, and in the next four stitches you will make 1 single crochet in each separate stitch.
When a sequence of stitches are repeated these are written within * – * and the total number of times the sequence is repeated is written after.
If the instructions for several sizes are written on the same row the specific number of stitches for each size are separated with /, if there are no / on a row in such a pattern the numbers apply to all sizes.
