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!
I hear you... I've been crocheting for more than 40 years as well... I've never had to change tension or hook size on only part of a crochet project, so all these issues this week have been concerning to me as well... I was kind of wondering if WE are the pattern testing?
