1  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: knot ugly shrug help on: March 26, 2008 02:24:59 PM

Okay... I'm just guessing here since I can't find my copy of the book right now...  Sad
but I think if the turning chain counts as the first stitch in the row, then you would actually attach it to the turning chain.  Otherwise, yes, use the first actual stitch in the row.  If it were me, I would just try stitching it both ways and see which ends up looking "cleaner" to you.  hth!   Smiley

Thank you!  This is a great site.  And there's lots more good stuff if you go
to the front page (just leave off the Doilies.html at the end)!!   Smiley

I love this scarf too!!  It's gorgeous!  When I went to the Nurhanne site to look
at the stitch patterns there, I saw that she uses British crochet terms.  (It's the Harlequin pattern here http://www.nurhanne.net/filatim/crochet/p2.html  I believe.) 

So I think this pattern will need translating into American terms (unless you usually use British terms.... in which case I'm not a good enough crocheter to be able to tell you where you might have gone wrong!  Undecided)

To see a chart comparing British and American terms, you can go here

and click on the Crochet Terms Chart link.

Hoping this helps, and I'm glad you posted your question because it made me check!!   Grin

Great ideas thanks!  Keep 'em coming...  All my stuff is in a sad pile of grocery bags on the floor near my couch.  Something's seriously gotta change, there!   Grin

My guess is the same as Glee's.... for the longest time I kept losing stitches when I made a scarf until I realized that the last stitch of the row you're working won't go into another stitch but, rather, the top of the chain-3 (or whatever) that was the first stitch of the previous row... 

one of those "duh" moments, but because it looks a little different than the top of a regular stitch, I kept missing it.   hth... Smiley

Cool!!  Congratulations!  You're way ahead of me.  I love to crochet, but can't knit (yet!) to save my life...lol... someday, I swear I will vanquish the dreaded pointy sticks!!

When I concentrate really hard on something, I tend to tighten my hands up.  I finally learned to loosen up my hands and hold my hook and yarn more gently.  Now, the stitches are looser and easier.

Hitting this ROCKS!
