I prefer the inside track myself. Smiley Just like the way it feels really.

I crochet on the outside, but I have no idea how to do it on the inside.

I am an outside person myself and honestly didn't know there was another way to do it.  I must echo the hook envy. Shocked So pretty. . .

I still love those hooks.  They are all that I will use.  They really are super comfortable.  You totally need to get some - I get mine at Hobby Lobby.  They are the only place that used to sell them in town but Joann's just opened up - a small, dinky one sad to say but at least it is a Joann's - and they carry them as well.  I am not sure if AC Moore or any other stores carry them.  I know my Michael's, Walmart and Hancocks do not.

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

I crochet along the outside but sometimes you just have to do it the other way for certain projects. It's really whatever feels more comfortable to you.  Wink

Definitely outside. Especially with small diameter appendages, I can stick my finger in the work and crochet against that. Although as chpetunia points out, inside is the only way to deal with fluffy-fied yarns. (If you're brave enough to deal with them at all.) Cheesy

And I don't have hook envy because I've got a whole set of the bamboo handled ones. They are some of my favorites to work with, but I've also got some Clover Takumi Soft Touch, Chiao Goo, and Tulip Etimo ones that I enjoy. I get these guys online since there are limited choices where I live. Definitely check out inline vs non-inline hooks first though, so you know what you're getting.

I learned by using the outside loops, an' that always worked best for me. I'm such a slow learner though, I just started learning how to fold by using the inside loops for a row. xD

I actually crochet using joined rows (seriously, am I the only one?), so I alternate inside-outside every row. But back when I did continuous rounds, I normally crocheted along the inside.

I crochet along the outside. I never even thought to do it on the inside. It's really useful to hear that it can be good for the furrier/fluffier yarn. I've made a few amigurumis using fluffy yarn and I found it pretty tricky, because I couldn't even see my stitches. I think I might try crocheting along the inside the next time I use that yarn again.
