Gauge or Drape?

Started working on a shop sample last night to illustrate how summer crochet patterns can be used for cooler weather here in the Gulf.

I did my gauge swatch. Like always. And hit gauge for the J/10/6mm hook using a Japanese 8/0 which is approximately a 5mm or H hook.

I sure was pleased and started chaining right away without really getting a feel for the drape of the swatch I’d just produced. Just when I got to the underarm shaping it suddenly occurred to me to hold the work to my front to see how it looked. I wasn’t sure.

The drape of the fabric was stiff and so I ripped it all back and started again with a hook two sizes larger. The drape was perfect but the fabric made me look bulky whereas the other looked sophisticated and slimming.

Needless to say gauge won over drape on this one so I’m starting over, yet again. Serves me right for second-guessing the designer.20180913_1624322063050823658626506.jpg
