With Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs


See The Video On My Crochet Youtube
 Channel At This LINK

We are going To Crochet a Simple Circle
To see if Hook Size Really matters.

Grab A 
H / 5.00 MM hook
J/ 6.00 MM Hook
And Any Med (4) yarn from 
your Yarn Stash

Stitch up a circle with each hook using the same yarn.
Than let's measure to see if Hook Size Matters?

Skill; Easy
Crochet Hook - H/ 5.00 mm. And J / 6.00 mm.
Small Amount of any Med (4) yarn fiber does not matter

Chain (ch)
Slip Stitch (slst)
Double Crochet (dc)
Size: 4 inches across if Stitched with the 5.00 MM Crochet Hook
         5 inches across if Stitched with a 6.00 MM Crochet Hook
Pattern Notes:
Ch 3 counts as a dc, join rounds to the ch3 with a slst.
Make one Circle With Each Size Crochet hook - (H, J)
following the pattern the same.
R: 1 - Ch 4, 1 dc in the 4th ch from the hook, 8 more dc in the the same ch,
join to the top of the ch 3, Ch 3 ( 10dc)

R: 2 - 1 dc in the same st as the ch 3, 2 dc in each dc around, join to top of ch 3,
Ch 3 (20dc)

R: 3 -1 dc in the same st as the ch 3, 2 dc in each dc around, join to top of ch 3
Tie off, weave in ends. (40dc)
How did your circles come out?

2 Things To Remember:

1. Crochet Hook Size Does Matter.

2. Everyone's Tension Is Different.

3. If your tension/ gauge is not measuring right, 
you can loosen or tighter your stitches, 
or Go up or down a hook size, or 2.
