1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Is this right? on: December 10, 2012 05:08:26 AM
I'm not sure if I'm doing this right. I've never successfully made anything that was not in the round crocheting. I always end up slowly increasing or decreasing. I'm trying to make a blanket using my old yarn, with random squares of crochet. (I'm doing "single crochet ribbing")

Obviously, it looks funny. Is that because I'm increasing, or is it because the first row(?) that I did is just tighter than the rest? When I get to the end of a row(?) and I flip the piece, and start again, I always chain one. Then do I skip one stitch(?) and start at the second one? Because I haven't being doing that, and so am I therefore increasing?

Help would be appreciated!!
