"Do you know why a gauge swatch is important when crocheting a garment? No matter if you’re new to crocheting garments or you’ve been crocheting them for years, there’s one thing many of us unfortunately skip: Testing the gauge. Well, honestly it’s the most time-consuming mistake to make. Because after all, that gauge swatch doesn’t take that long to make if you do compare it with hours of ripping out projects, sizes that don’t fit & shapes not turning out how they should. So, before I dive into this blog post, let’s just put this straight! Do your gauge swatch, it can potentially save you hours!"
