Crochet Tip

Found on WEBS Tuesday's Crochet Tip: If you’re new to crochet, or a seasoned veteran that gets tripped up by that last stitch in a row, this tip is for you!

In crochet, it can be tricky to keep track of the last stitch in your row, especially when using dark yarn. Your first stitch in a row tends to be a little tighter than the others and can even curl a little bit. This makes us unsure if that last stitch in a row is really part of the row we’re working on, or if it’s the side of a stitch from the row below.

To keep track, I put a locking stitch marker at the beginning of each row I start. This way, when I turn my work and start working back across the row, it’s very clear which stitch is the last in the row. It’s a simple tip, but can come in really handy!
