Does Size Matter?
I had no idea that there would be such a big variance in the size of the squares. Two inches is a lot, especially if you consider that there's only .75mm difference in the hook sizes. I'm not sure how much thicker the worsted yarn is, but I imagine it's 1mm or less. I'm a nerd at heart, and I'm partial to math and the role that it plays in crochet. That means that I had to see what would happen if I made the same square out of thread! This time I knew that the difference would be much greater, but how much? As you can see it's half the size of the dk/sport square. Now my love of math is elementary, so figuring out what yarn thickness, coupled with which hook size produces stitches that will make squares of what size is way beyond me. What I do know is size matters. And the only way to definitively know how big (or little) your square is going to be is to grab your supplies and get hooking!
I hope that you enjoyed my little foray into size, swatching and squares! Thanks so much for stopping by and spending a bit of your day with me.
Until next time friends,
Be blessed and stitch & read with love!
