Finding the Last Stitch - Crochet Tip 46

When working with single crochet, it can be difficult at times to see where to put the new stitch. The ending or edge stitch are even more difficult to see when changing rows/rounds. I always stress to make sure you have an accurate count of stitches, since this is where you can drop or gain a stitch. When starting the new row/round and the instructions guide me to "Chain 1, single crochet in the same stitch", and I am not able to tell where the same stitch is, I will pull out the last stitch on the previous round. Look at the top of the stitch facing you. Chain 1, turn, look at the top of the stitch on the backside. Look closely at the stitch so you know where to put your hook.

Note: This tip will apply to any stitch.
