Example text

Walking Tall WHO WHAT WHERE? K. t’s been said that Americans and Brits are two people separated by a common language, and that’s doubly true for American and British crocheters. Perhaps it’s a leftover from the days of the American Revolution, when folks on this side of the pond wanted to do anything they could to distinguish themselves from those on the other side. But whatever the reason, British crochet stitches, though made exactly the same as American ones, have confusingly similar names that mean very different things.

While you are making a chain, you can try counting “1” every time you pull the hook through a loop. front Now turn the chain over and look at what’s on the other side (the back). ” It’s important to familiarize yourself with these three strands that make up each chain—the two arms of the V and the butt—’cause you’ll need to know them when you go on to the next part: making a row of single crochet stitches into this base chain. BY HOOK OR BY CROOK C Making Single Crochet (“sc”) Stitches into the Chain rochet can be a cruel taskmistress, and she’ll let you know who’s boss from the start.

Count the Vs across the top of your last row and see if there are 20 of ’em. If you have less, you’ve got a problem. Maybe you aren’t making a single crochet in the last stitch of your row. Pay careful attention to how you are working the ending and beginning of your rows. Try getting at least 4 rows of work that remains the same width (even if it’s less than 20 stitches). Then we can talk. Now, take a close look at your single crochet work. With all that yarning over and pulling loops through loops, the structure of an individual crochet stitch can be less than obvious.
