well I picked up crochet a little while ago after two years of knitting. For me, I came up with a blob too and it was driving me nuts. I just walked away thinking I could never crochet and went back to my knitting project. I picked it up about a week later and just did a chain of 10 stitches. I just started working that chain (through the butt loop
) and when I finished the foundation I just stared at it to see where I go next and just through practice I finally got it. It took me a while but it did click. I just have to say that practice and analyzing how a stitch works in crochet worked for me. Good luck! Don't give up, crochet is really fun and fast once you get it.
