It’s officially autumn – crochet season has begun in earnest! This morning on Facebook Live I am showing off the past month of new free crochet patterns on Moogly, and giving you a sneak peek of what’s to come! And on YouTube this afternoon, I’m talking about gauge – what it is, why it’s important, and how to get it right!

In this month’s YouTube live, I’ll be talking about gauge – and how to get yours to match what’s called for in the pattern! Thank you so much to all who suggested it! And I’m looking for ideas for the October Live too – do you have a question you’d like answered? Let me know in the comments!

Thank you for this tutorial, Tamara! I must be a tugger because most of the time my rows are shorter than gauge. It’s interesting… one of the things I’ve done to correct this is to figure out how much my gauge is shorter and then compensate with an extra row after however many rows it takes to need an additional row. I do this because when I’m crocheting, like you said, most of the time I’m not paying a lot of attention to what I’m doing and my product winds up not matching gauge. It’s easier for me to add the extra rows than to try to modify my crocheting,
Just a little aside here… this color (like all the newer Office colors) is so lite it’s terribly difficult to see. I am not complaining… well, maybe a little, but I hate to do that! The color would be easier to see if the font was larger. I made this larger by using my mouse wheel and the key. 🙂
Thank you again! I will give the golden loop a little more length and see if I can make this a habit. 🙂
