This morning I put the "bitch" in Stitch n' Bitch!

I was 3 rounds into the Fluffy Bunny slippers when I realized I did not have the correct number of stitches all around. So I started unravelling, meaning to go back a step. Unfortunately I could not distinguish where one round ended and the next began! I wound up almost unravelling it completely!

Does anyone have any tips on how to keep track of your rows when crocheting in a circle/oval? Maybe a stitch marker in the last slipstitch? I'd be grateful for any advice!

Yeah, anytime I've ever had to do stuff in a round, I put a stitch marker in the space where I would eventually do a slipstitch. It helps a lot.

I know how you feel! To this day, I still have not achieved the Yeehaw Lady because the rounds confused me.

I always have to use stitch markers whenever I crochet in rounds, especially projects where you don't turn after each round.  I just put a stitch marker in the slip stitch.  I use saftey pins, but they also make special crochet markers that can be slid on and off the stitches with ease.

i'm working on bedfellows which are designed in the round as spirals. i'm using a short piece of yarn (in a contrasting color) as a stitch marker. when i get to the marker i pull it out and place it over my next stitch. check page 23 in happy hooker where stitch markers are described.

I had the same problem with the inside (top) sole -- I'm pretty sure I found mistakes.  There were several rounds where the number of stitches you were instructed to make did not match the number of stitiches given at the end of the round's instructions -- basically the instructions didnt make enough stitches.  But I didnt see any corrections on the top/inside sole in the errata.

I had that same problem, Jenn, as did someone else who posted on craftster about it. After the upper sole though, the pattern (plus errata) are correct

damn your eyes -- yeah, you're right, I didn't have any problems after that.  Except now I can't find the embroidery thread I bought for the nose.  I can find the buttons, but no pink embroidery thread.
