How do you not stretch when crocheting?

To do this, grab the tail that is still hanging out and gently pull until the slip knot is tight. Then, finish your single crochet as normal. Continue working your single crochets across the row to the end. Continue crocheting over the end of the fishing line to secure what will be the “tail” down.

Can you use a sewing machine on crochet?

A basic sewing machine will work for joining knit/crochet items as long as it has the capability of making an adjustable zig-zag stitch. It helps if you can adjust the pressure on the presser foot of your sewing machine. That can be really helpful with some thicker knit/crochet yarns.
