Hi, sorry for all the questions but I'm a big beginner with crochet, despite having taken to knitting like a duck to water. For some reason I'm just not picking up the crochet as fast.
Anyhoo... I've finally gotten my basic stitches down and am feeling more confident about being able to read my crochet. The main issue I'm having now is keeping my tension even. I keep getting some V's much looser than other and I seem to have a loose gauge in general, which I also find to be the case when I knit but I don't have a problem with my knit stitches looking even.
I've found one way of keeping things more even but I it seems to tighten things up a little too much and makes my hands cramp.
I've tried different ways of holding the yarn and I really don't think that's where the problem is. I think the problem is my right hand.
Are there any crochet videos I can find online?
How much can blocking actually even out crochet? What about acrylic? Any hope there?
