Default Crochet Instruction Details - Joining & Turning - Crochet Tip 39
Lack of crochet instruction details and errors will add to confusion for a new crocheter. Having overlooked instruction details myself, I have a great appreciation for everyone who writes and shares a crochet pattern. This is a tip that becomes second nature to seasoned crocheters, which may be why it is not always included in the instructions. If your pattern lacks telling you to join or chain, keep the following in mind.
- By default, you join at the end of a round. Pictures are a good way to see what is supposed to be done if you think that joining is not correct.
- By default, you chain ?? amount to get to the next row/round. Traditional crochet instructions tell you to CH 1 for a Single Crochet, CH 2 for a Half Double Crochet and CH 3 for a Double Crochet.
