Gauge is super important and I had to learn this the hard way on a recent project. I made a headband that should have been women's size and it will only fit a 6 month old to 2 year old sized noggin. Totally not worth all the time and energy I spent making it for it to only fit that size head. :(

I have definitely learned this lesson.

Yes, gauge is very important, too.
