Ok, so I am trying to crochet a simple rectangle scarf using the fishnet stitch but I have hit a snag.

Maybe the world's stupidest question but I can't find an answer anywhere - how do I end a rectangle of fishnet?  The one I have going on started with foundation chain, then a chain 5, sk 3, sc, chain 5, etc...

so at the end do I just chain 3, then sc into hoop, chain 3, sc into the hoop, etc...?

I tried that and it is looking kinda wonky  Undecided

I will love you forever if you are able to help!!!!!

I've got a pattern for a similar scarf at home... If you give me a day or two, I'll find the instructions and see how they do the final row.

It sounds like you want the last row to be "straight", and I think you're on the right track! An extra row of sc after you've done the ch 3 wil help flatten it... as well as a good blocking. Remember that it's only us crocheters that see the faults, real or imagined!

Crochet uses a hook. Pirates have hooks, and they are cool. So crochet is cool because of the hook.

I tried that but it ends up looking really bunched up in some spots and really loose in others.

Yes, this is true, I am just hoping to get something straight but I am sure no one else would ever notice.  It is just that it is a gift for a friend and I really want it to look as good as possible.  If you are able to find that pattern - that would be SO SUPER awesome of you!!

Thanks both of you guys for you input!! Grin
