Gauge:  12 dc + 7 rows = 4 in. (10 cm).  BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

I just finished this. I wasn't sure about the edging at the end with gaps, so I chained two the first time around and it turned out great.

I love the look of the tunisian rug. Can someone please tell me what a crochet needle is? I have never come across a pattern using it before. I am only an intermediate crocheter. thank you .

Is there a way to knit this instead of crochet?


Oct 9, 2011

Hi,I think what the pattern is telling you, is that at the end of the 4th row, you will have 28 chain two spaces across the row. Hope I am correct and that will help you. Keep crocheting!

I am stuck on row 4 of the first strip at the end where it says "ch-2 sps at end of this row. Can someone help?
