I’ve only been crocheting for a few months and my biggest problem is the way I currently hold my hook, working yarn, and working piece. When I go to put the hook into the stitch, I find myself having to put my left middle finger behind the stitch to help guide the hook but it is killingggg my finger. It just hurts so bad.
Any tips/advice? Anyone do this too? Help please!
Caron baby cakes in petals. No pattern, just a big granny square. For my niece-in-law, who is having a girl.
400m of yarn and 5 days later
Let the record show I've never blocked anything I my life.
Making a patchwork cardigan and I want to know if it will be good to heat block the square patches before sewing them together. Also will it matter whether I steam or mist and blow-dry?
And after I block the squares and sew the cardigan together, should I wet block the entire thing after? In my head this seems like a good idea but idk😭
Completely inspired here on /r/crochet: vision and idea from /u/crochetlady71 and her amazing wreath. Was super fun to look for flowers to try, and I learned a ton of new stitches. I love the final product- it'll be a birthday present for my mother in law.
Hi guys! I’m currently working on some crochet daisies made of classic cotton… but how do i block them? I usually work with very soft solo that doesn’t nerd blocking.. so how do i proceed? Thank you!
Row 1: do I dc in the fourth chain and then connect the chain together to form the circle?
i’ve tried making them before but never understood anything, then i watched a youtube tutorial today and had an epiphany. it was a surprisingly mindless process as soon as i got the hang of it. it made me super happy that i finally learned how to make them because now i can start on a blanket with all the leftover wool yarns my grandma gave me, it was a BIG BAG and i’ve been so lost on what do with all of it.
I bought some brown/chocolate yarn for £1/100g so I decided to use it for a blanket/throw but I've now been told several times that it's not a very nice brown (a bit darker than in photo/chocolate brown).
Should I change/pattern as stripes of this and a beige/white or should I commit to full ugly brown? I have 4 more balls of this yarn. It's 1.5m long. It also curves a little at one end due to tension issues but I've accepted that.
I’ve watched so many tutorials and I just can’t figure it out! If anyone has any tips or links to tutorials PLEASE help a girl out… I’m getting so frustrated!
Hello everyone. I am usually a good knitter and knitting comes pretty naturally - tension, structure and all that. I tried crochet many times and just got annyoed. However, deciced to try again and just do whatever, no preassure.
Which is why now we have a pretty irregular rectangle made by I don't know which sticth and no idea what I did.
Can you please tell me:
Ultimately, I'd love to make granny squares and those cute little crochet plants and other things.
