GAUGE: 14 sts + 10 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in hdc. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Beginning ch does not count as an hdc throughout the pattern.

I would have never imagined making a crocheted bbq apron for wearing! What a unique and interesting idea. I just wonder if it could get a little hot if you are bbqing in the hot sun. Has anyone tried this and found it didn't get to warm during the summer?
