1  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Left handed = mom in tears on: March 22, 2006 08:50:54 PM
My mom is making the one skein scarf and halfway done with the pattern. She is left handed. The 3 rows of DC and the shell stitches worked fine. Then she reached the end of the first shell repeat where the shell curves around the short end of the scarf. Well this is where it gets complicated. Apparently when you crochet there is a rs & ws like knitting.. I knew that but didn't know what it ended up looking like until tonight. I am a new crocheter (thank you SO much i FINALLY got how to crochet) so I do not understand how to "reverse" a pattern for left handers. Is there any way I can figure out how to even out this pattern with it looking symmetrical? My mom is crying and super upset screaming how she's going to throw it in the trash when she's spent all this time on it. She refuses to learn how to crochet right handed because she's been crocheting left handed for 2 years (all scarves.) Any help you could give me would be absolutely fabulous. I feel awful as it is because she's so upset and I cannot figure out how to help her out besides teaching her right handed (which is not an option at the moment.) I would appreciate ANY suggestions you wonderful people might have.
