i am currently working my first full size afghan pattern, its from all free crochet. the directions say seven rows of dc should equal about three and a half inches.  i can only get four rows of dc in that space. how should i proceed

If you proceed, your afghan will be bigger than the measurements given in the pattern. Otherwise, you need to rip it out and start over with a much smaller hook (maybe as much as 2-3 sizes based on the difference you are now getting).  Work a small 4x4" swatch to check your gauge first.  Are you using the yarn size recommended or a bulkier size?  That will make a difference too.
