Australian/UK terminology is used throughout this pattern.
Crocheting to gauge is not important for this project, as long as you achieve a density to your fabric that you like.
(if your crochet style is usually loose, use a smaller hook; if your crochet style is usually tight, user a larger hook)
This may of course affect the final size of the project along with the yarn amounts required.
Thanks to the lovely Kelly at Tangled Yarns for the beautiful images in the pattern, without them it would have been very ordinary indeed. Thanks also to Lauren and Kelly for the test crocheting and tech editing. You both did a wonderful job.
