  1. You never put the hook size in your patterns, is that because everybody is different. Like me for an 8-ply yarn, doing an amigurumi, I prefer a 4 mm hook, and it just comes out bigger, is this okay, or am I doing it wrong.

    1. Hi,

      For amigurumi, the hook size and yarn size doesn't really matter as it will just produce a smaller or bigger toy (unless you are very particular about the size of the toy)

      For things like bags/wristlet, size do matter so I used a gauge. I did not use hook or yarn size because different people have different ways of crocheting, some crochet it tighter and some crochet it looser. So they will produce bags/wristlets of different sizes even if they used the same yarn/hook. So by using a gauge, they can just find a suitable size hook and yarn which produces the same length as the gauge with their crocheting style.

      I hope I did not confused you :P feel free to correct me if I am wrong. :)
