Crochet Quote: Importance of Gauge

Today’s crochet quote comes from a post by Tracie Barrett last week on the importance of listing gauge when writing a crochet pattern. She makes some great points in this smart post.

“My fear is that there are new baby crocheters who will gravitate toward free patterns while they learn their skill, and then give up because things don’t work out. Maybe they crochet tightly and the fingerless gloves that should fit everyone end up fitting baby dolls only. Maybe they’re still pretty loose and that hat will fit two heads. And maybe they give up and walk away. That makes me sad. So please, take a few minutes if you’re writing a pattern and mark what your gauge is.”

On a scale of 1 – 10, how important is it to you that a crochet pattern lists the gauge?
