Your gauge is for instance 15 20 and my pattern is 15
Of the two, the stitch gauge over 4 inches, ( 10 cms ) is more important.
In a sweater pattern, for example, most patterns will tell you to work so many inches ( cms ) to the underarm,

The best way to save money on your crafting expeditions is to find a reliable wholesale craft supply source.
Buying craft supplies in bulk is a good way to save money and most of all, you will probably get the products
you might not find in your local craft store. Many of the internet stores has the same prices for retail and wholesale.
Try to buy some craft supplies on overstock. If it is a bargain or not, will vary widely depending on what
wholesalers are trying to get rid of, but you can find good deals if you’re want to take time for it.

If you crochet through both loops in every stitch, you will have a stiff garment, not so stretchable.
If you crochet only through the back loop of every stitch, your garment will be more stretchable and will look more as knitwork. It will have a better

Using a larger size crochet hook than given or recommended in pattern or yarn label,
will give looser stitches, thus ; more stretchable crochet work. This feels much better.
Just make a tension swatch and choose the right crochet pattern with your gauge.
