Why do I keep losing stitches when crocheting?
4. Why do I lose stitches? A major cause of stitch loss is failing to put a stitch into the last stitch of the row. The last stitch can get quite tight and may not look like a ‘real’ stitch – but it is.
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.
How do you crochet a row without turning it?
- Row 1:Without turning your work, insert your hook into the next stitch.
- Row 2:Wrap the yarn around the crochet hook and pull the yarn through the stitch.
- Row 3:Wrap the yarn around the crochet hook and pull the yarn through both stitches on your hook.
