Crochet Challenges ?

What do/did you find most challenging about crochet? 

Comments

  1. When starting a new row or round, I have a difficult time deciphering which stitch was/is my beginning stitch. Do I count it or not. Sometimes, even when I think I am counting meticulously, it still doesn't come out like it should. I am trying to learn how to "make it work" instead of ripping out time and stitches. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    1. Jennhenders do you use stitch markers to help you mark your end rows and creating a new row?

  2. The foundation stitch for the cupcake hat. I can do the foundation stitch, but it's when I continued with the rows. They were all uneven. So, I stopped fighting it and knitted it in 2x2 rib stitch.

  3. Swapping from US to UK instructions in a pattern.

  4. Making my stripes even. I'm crocheting in a round and when I want to put a stripe or two right in the middle of the hat it NEVER comes out even. What am I doing wrong? I'd LOVE to be able to figure it out!

  5. I should add that I'm making a hat and crocheting in a continual round!

  6. The most challenging thing that I found in crochet was learning the double crochet stitch. I wanted to try a granny square and my sister graciously showed me how to do it and the rest is history. the next challenge I wanna get over is the foundation single crochet that you have taught.

  7. To keep the countings of stitches in mind and knowing type of stitch( SC/DC/TR/HDC) seems to be a challenge in crochet..

  9. I new to crocheting and taught myself using books and
    your videos (when I see your videos it all drops into place thanks). I am trying to venture into more advanced crochet and the most difficult thing for me is joining motifs as you go. I have tried several times but still not happy with results.

  10. Learning it on my own only knowing how to do a basic chain.

  11. The hardest part for me is joining rounds/rows in either a circle or a granny square. They always look so sloppy. Also with squares, I sometimes screw up the stitch count and instead of increasing with each row I end up actually decreasing on the side where the join is. The other sides are all fine but the join side ends up with a completely different count of stitches.

  12. When I was younger, it was to keep the same amount of stitches by row...

  13. Hi,
    The Basic stitch count in making a dress.-Neck Line.It frustrates at the point where the join is instructed and the design blok has less chain!Other Home decor patterns,stitches are fine.

  14. Hi Theresa,

    The hardest part of learning to crochet, was finding someone to teach me.

    Then I found YOU and your VIDEOS!!

    I made my very first item...an afghan (54 x 81") in 4 weeks!! And my hubby and I love it!!

    I'm on to my 2nd afghan...one with ROSES!!

    I wanted to let you know that I'm considering doing a CROCHET PATTERN GIVE-AWAY (I have over 200 patterns, since I closed my ETSY shop to get rid of.) I posted about it TODAY! If you'd like to take a peek about it...or send any of your readers and friends over...I need comments about doing it!!

    ~Blessings,
    Jan

  16. The most challenging thing I've found about crocheting is trying to figure out printed patterns. Sometimes they just don't make any sense. I usually get so frustrated I rip it all out and quit trying. I'm more of a visual learner, that's why your videos are so helpful.

  17. What a great blog! I learned to crochet when I was a kid, and I stopped because nothing I made came out right. I knew one stitch, single crochet, and my scarves looked like roller coaster tracks! Now I found you and love your videos, but my rows still start creeping smaller....I'm losing stitches somehow. I tried to make a dishcloth-crooked edges, and to make a little pouch-same issue. Trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong....

  19. pup90303 - I have a video tutorial for a diamond that shows yarn changes in the middle of the row. I also have the Blue Star Service Flag which demonstrates color changes in the middle of the row.
