Leaning Crochet Stitches and Squares - Crochet Tip #60

Have you noticed that the stitches in some squares may lean more than others? In this example, the stitches have a slight lean but it is not real noticeable. This is because the rounds of the square are worked in the same direction. Think about when you crochet a row of stitches when working a blanket. At each end you turn. The stitches will have a different look with crochet rows. To solve the stitch lean, you will turn on each round. This will produce more uniform stitches, that should stand taller and reduce the stitch lean.
