Also,based on what I found, at least on this project, going up one hook size only added 1/2". Since I am more a knitter than crocheter, is this kind of a general rule of thumb? Am going to be busy today! Love the pattern and love doing it, is not boring!
I think the main issue with gauge in this clue is that we are doing such a varied mix of different stitches. The chains need to be very loose, and some people make their chains very tight. If the chains are too tight, the motif will not be allowed to stretch out enough.
