Does an increase count as one or two stitches?
The taller stitches (the double crochet and treble crochet) are easier to count the post of the stitch because the stitch is so tall. With the single crochet and half double crochet, it may be easier to count the ‘v’ stitch at the top. Remember, the loop on your hook at the end of each row does not count as a stitch!
What does an increase mean in crocheting?
Increasing stitches (abbreviated inc) in crocheting is just what it sounds like. You add stitches to a crocheted row so that it has more stitches than the previous one.

Does it matter which way you turn your work in crochet?
It may not seem like it matters, but turning in crochet ought to be done consistently each time. That is, you should be turning the same way every time you turn to the next side. The turn creates a neat edge, which is important if you are joining two pieces or seaming garments.
Does chain count as first row?
When you’re working rows of half double crochet, you will chain 2 as your turning chain at the beginning of each row. Because this chain does NOT count as a stitch, you will create your first half double crochet into that very first stitch.
How many chains do you need for a throw blanket?
To give you an estimate, the chain stitches you’ll need for a blanket range from 90 to 225 chains. This is because every blanket type differs in size, and you have to consider the yarn thickness and personal gauge. You may also be using a bigger hook, so the chains you’ll do might be lesser.
