1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: what am I doing wrong? +how to turn? on: November 21, 2006 10:22:01 AM
There are videos in the FAQ on the discussion and questions page that will show you how to turn! if you go to http://nexstitch.com and go to the tutorial section and look at the videos, I think each of them show you how to turn in that particular stitch

nexstitch's video is down/the link doesnt exist...hehe.

http://nexstitch.com/v_crochet_videos.html works perfectly fine for me.

i mean the video on turning.

Hey there, don't get too frustrated, twisting happens... there are a number of reasons why... most of them are about tension....
1) you chain may be too tight
2) you may be placing too many stitches in each chain (this is not a tension thing, this one is about counting...)
3) your stitches may be too loose
4) you may be using the wrong size hook for your project

Turning is another story... say you are making a scarf and you want it 30 stitches wide (by however many stitches it takes to get a good length)
You would start out with 31 chains (NOT including the slip knot to start your chain)
Your first single crochet would start in the second chain from the hook. COUNT your stitches to make sure you are only making 30 stitches to get to the end of the row. Some patterns tell you to chain one (and some want a chain 2,) chain one, and you will turn your work and begin again. Place your first single crochet in the very last single crochet you finished from the previous row of work (just before you chained one), count again, crocheting 30 stitches and repeat!
Hope that helps, I have no idea where you can find a video BUT if you have IM I would be happy to set up the web cam and show you! Just PM me! Smiley


yeah, the instructions are pretty good, but I'm still a tad confused. I really need to see someone doing it, in order for me to, haha. So yeah, if you don't mind I'll PM you. : D

 Huh

This is so confusing! My third day crocheting, and apparently I've got everything under control...but for some reason, when I start single stitching my chain halfway through, it starts to curve/bend...and look a little funky.

Here's some pics.

I don't know...maybe I'm just thinking it doesn't look right because it's barely started.... Huh

Also, how do you turn? I can't seem to find any tutorials on the subject...especially video ones. Does anyone know where to find some?
