1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Crocheting on the right side help on: June 23, 2008 04:56:50 AM
Ok... so you don`t really have to crochet into one side of the stitch in particular?

I feel like such a newbie to have to keep asking, but I`m still slightly confused. It seems easier to crochet into the side with the clear, v-shaped stitches - how come I can`t arrive at that side when I turn the first time? I`m sure I've stitched into that side before.
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheting on the right side help on: June 23, 2008 03:25:50 AM
Ok. I`m pretty new to crochet, but I've made a few things and so far I've never had this problem, so I`m really stuck.

In my current project, I turned a chain of 20, then did a row of sc, turned, and found that the side facing me, which should be the right side ( not the one with the bumps) , was the wrong side.

I undid the whole thing, started again, and the same thing happened! I have no idea what's happening! Luckily the piece I`m doing doesn`t need a right side, so I've just continued on - crotcheting on the other side doesn`t actually change the stitches, apparently!

But I would like to solve this problem before I get to my next project, which does have a right side.

Does anyone have any idea what I`m doing wrong?

I am a complete and utter nerd, so when I saw the pattern - by the Institute for Figuring http://theiff.org/press/interweave.html - for a crochet model of the hyperbolic plane I just had to make one. Turns out they're really good practice for Increasing as well as looking cool.

They're easy, and once you've made one you can alter the pattern to make even stranger looking shapes, or join the Hyperbolic Coral project.

Anyone interested?

By the way, here are some photos of my hyperbolic piece so far to get you interested -

this is after about ten rows with a C hook and really cheap, coarse yarn, increasing every 4th stitch

Absolutely adorable. I see to be collecting patterns for octopii at the moment - I think I`m going to end up with an enormous collection.

I`m adding this pattern to my list. Which seems to be getting longer every day!

Totally awesome and incredibly nerdy - I love it!!

That is such a good idea. I`m adding spectrum scarves to my list of projects  - as long as you don`t mind me using the idea?

Totally awesome. I have a bunch of friends , and not just guys, who would love something like that.

Totally awesome. If ever there was a crochet form for nerds, that would be it. I`m making one as soon as I`m done on my other projects.

I`ll test it gladly. I know just the person I can give the finished product to. bettyboop5594@hotmail.com

I've almost completed one - he's purple, and just need his feet and eyes sewn on - and I've started a smaller pink friend :-) Unfortunately, the head of the second one is even more pointed and hexagonal than the first! I get the feeling I`m doing something wrong...

Lol. Luckily all I have is a small dog, but I have to be careful not to leave my projects on the ground, because if they're soft enough she'll sleep on them. She also loves to jump up into my lap while I'm crafting, usually on top of my wool and the project.
