I would be more helpful if you could give total amount of yards for yarn needed as they vary so very much esp. for this pattern since the rec'd yarn is no longer available. Thank you.

Looks like Caron Cozi yarn is discontinued. Will any 5 wt yarn work?

As you continue to crochet, or knit for that matter, you will get a good feel for whether the recommended gauge is crucial to a project -- or the final measurements of the pieces that make up a garment or an overall project. Gauge is also a good way to find comparable yarns if you wish to use a yarn different from the one called for in a pattern, for reasons of cost, availability of that yarn, the desire to use a yarn you have, etc. I do make square samples for checking gauge when I choose to check gauge and keep them for coasters or to assemble into table mats, or even afghans.

Gauge is a way to make sure your project comes out like the pattern. You use the yarn and chrochet about 15-20 chains then make several rows. If the gauge is not correct then you use a different hook to get the right gauge.

Hi, Since I haven't crocheted in probably 30 something years I decided to try and do this beginner throw for my grand daughters for Christmas 2011 and was wondering why the pattern doesn't say turn at the end of each row. Is this supposed to be taken for granted or am I missing something? I want you to know that I love getting your email. Fran Galvin

can you explain how to read the gauge and how to use the gauge I have never made a gauge and I don't know how to read it
