I'm surprised at the number of people with gauge issues on this one. If the gauge is supposed to be the same as the last clue then I don't understand why so many people are having problems. I was thinking probably 2 more rounds. One that is the double crochet and chain stitches, and one that is just the double crochet.

Darn it! my ends aren't nearly that long, what do we do if that happens. I'll do that from now on

Couldn't it be that they don't? My thinking on the issue is that I crochet the same way all the time with the same tension. Therefore if the pattern was made to fit together then my own work will fit together. I might end up with a bigger or smaller blanket but I'm going to love it either way. I was just curious. It seems like a lot of headache and worry for something that's supposed to be fun.
Of course I didn't even look at the blocking and gauge stuff maybe it says they go together?

My Clue 2 squares measure 9 1/2 inches. The fact that so many seasoned crocheters are having gauge problems indicates a lack of pattern testing on Bernat's part. I can't believe such a reputable company would put out an apparently untested pattern under their banner. I am extremely disappointed with the issues this week. Love the pattern and had no problem figuring it out. But I currently have a really bad taste in my mouth concerning Bernat products because of the problems with the testing and design of this CAL. I will hang in for one more week, still using my trusty H hook. If the next clue is problematic, I will frog my progress so far, and go to a more reliable source for my patterns and yarn needs. Thanks for letting me vent, but this is ridiculous!
