  • Me, not paying much attention: "Yeah, sure."
  • Hubs: "Did you see what truck it is?"
  • Me: *looks up, gets excited* "Yes! Let's!!"
  • It was a Hobby Lobby truck. I love that he gets me.

Crocheting in the opposite side of a starting chain is my biggest weakness right now because I can never keep the correct stitch count. Even when I follow the directions down to the letter i typically end up three stitches behind. What the hell!?

Are you meaning when you chain [x amount], work in the 2nd ch from hook and across, then put [x amount of] stitches in the last, then work down the other side? If so, I totally feel for you, because I frequently have the same issue. (Especially when working slipper soles!!!)

Here are a few tips I’ve learned from trial and error:

  • Make sure you chain the correct amount. It may seem like an obvious thing to do, but chaining is usually pretty mindless so it’s very easy to get your count off.
  • Be sure your tension is even, and you’re working into the proper part of each chain. If it starts looking funky and you can’t tell where the next chain is, pull back and restart it!
  • The biggest confusion, for me, is working multiple stitches in that last chain and starting down the other side. Here is where you need to make absolute certain you’re working into the first chain on the opposite side. Sometimes when working multiple stitches into the last chain, the first stitch on the next side (and sometimes even second or third!) gets hidden by all those stitches forced into the last chain. Scrunch all those stitches together, and make sure you’re getting into that next chain and not skipping any.
  • Sometimes if I am having a lot of trouble on a particular day, I will work in only one loop of the chain going down the first side, and work in the other loop of the chain on the opposite side, just so I can more easily see my stitches. It may leave a little bit bigger of a gap there and not look as perfect as it could, but it’s better than getting too frustrated and tossing it out!

I hope some of these tricks work for you! Good luck!

Hey there! What do you have on your hooks?

Check out these awesome slippers I made! This pair is for my oldest sister’s birthday, but I quickly whipped up an identical second pair for my cousin before she went back to California (she spent the summer with my mom in my hometown).

I used Mamachee’s Oma Slippers Pattern, and also her Jute Soles pattern for the bottoms!
