I used size 5 and then I "thought" I used size 10. I could not get 4 inches in rows. No matter how many times I did it or how loose I made it, I couldn' get gauge. Well, hmmm, lesson learned - look at the little numbers at the end of the needles! It seems that when I finished a previous project using size 8, I put them on my desk next to the size 5 and thought they were 10. Of course size 8 wont't do it, lol. I have my size 10 firmly clutched in my hands and I will not let them go again. Check your needle size! I crack myself up, lol.

For the CAL it's a size H hook and for the KAL it's size 8 needles.
So itching to get started.
crochetqueen wrote:So I got my yarn yesterday! I don't typically do a gauge when I am making a blanket, but last year my squares were not very uniform, so I decided this year I would do the gauge. I am glad I did! The pattern calls for an H hook/5mm (for crochet), but I have a very loose tension hold so I will need to use an I/5.50mm hook to get the right gauge (12dc and 7 rows=4inchs). Honestly I would recommend doing the gauge for this blanket! It will make putting the blanket together and blocking in the end SOOOO much easier! Getting excited for next Wednesday!
