Crochet! - - Dress It Up -

It is very im­por­tant to block your gauge swatch be­fore be­gin­ning your gar­ment. Make your swatch, place it on a padded sur­face, sprin­kle with wa­ter and stretch and pin in place. Mea­sure when dry. When mea­sur­ing your work, be sure to stretch out, as you did for the blocked piece, for a more ac­cu­rate mea­sure­ment. Start­ing each Front with a sep­a­rate ball of yarn makes for a more even color strip­ing. Be a row counter. Make sure you have the same num­ber of rows to arm­hole on Back and Fronts. This makes for eas­ier assembly and match­ing pat­terns.
