Whenever I try to do “in the round” it ends up being lumpy and wavy. I can’t make it flat. Anyone know how to help me? I’m also terrible with acronyms.
As far as it being lumpy and wavy, it’s difficult to say without knowing what you’re working on, but generally I’d just make sure you’re increasing evenly and not increasing too fast. If you increase too much in each round, it will get lumpy and wavy.
For example, if you start with 6 stitches, you should have:
Round 1: Work 6 st in your ring (either magic circle, or ch3 or 4, join, and work in the ring)
Round 2: *work 2 stitches in each stitch* around - 12 stitches
Round 3: *work 2 stitches in next stitch, work 1 stitch in next* repeat around - 18 stitches
Round 4: *work 2 stitches in next stitch, work 1 stitch in next 2 stitches* repeat around - 24 stitches
If you’re increasing evenly, the stitch count of each round should be a multiple of your starting number. Of course, if you’re working on something that isn’t typical, it may be hard to say.
I’d love to know what you’re working on to help you further. Especially if you’re working from a pattern. :)
Also, if you’re having issues with the crochet acronyms and abbreviations, I have an abbreviations cheat sheet you can learn from! For me, it just took time. I used my reference sheet so much, in the beginning!
I have internet again! I’ll be working on filling the queue (when I’m not unpacking or otherwise involved in something else!)
I have ecards and roundups to be queued, I just need to find the time to get them done! Thanks for sticking around!!
This little lantern is very easy to make. The sleeve is just four rows of double crochets in a round and one last row of singles. I used a white mohair yarn with a little bit of glitter in it. For this honey jar I did about 25 stitches all around with an 8 mm hook. Wove in a piece of ribbon, placed a light inside (LED). Done. A nice last minute gift. :)
THANK YOU FOR SUBMITTING! - Just Stitched
@bethama - probably! It doesn’t look too hard, so long as the beginning is figured out!
@readalfa - I haven’t had much of a chance to look, but I will definitely post it if I find one! It doesn’t seem too hard, but the beginning is probably tricky.
@wishingforaperfectforever - I thoight about that pattern, too! It isn’t exact, but it’s very similar!
Uh-oh! The queue is empty!
Looks like life happened, and I haven’t had time to fill it! I’ll get some more posts loaded as soon as I can.
In the mean time, share your tips and tricks, projects, WIPS, or ask questions in the Submit or Ask box.
I saw this beanie while I was out eating with the fam. I loved the stitch pattern, and I hope to see if there is a pattern online!
What’s on your hooks?
I have a ruffle scarf that I have in my bag - I’ve been working on it in my down time! What are you working on?
I saw this blanket at a thrift store, and thought the stitch pattern was so pretty!
Today is moving day! So I will be without internet* until we get it turned on at the new house! I have stuff in the queue to last through the weekend, so I’ll try to get some reblogs in a couple times a day after that!
*Without internet is loosely used term - I will have internet on my phone, but it’s slow because I don’t get 4G service in my new area, and we all know slow internet isn’t Tumblr friendly!
Happy Thanksgiving, Americans!
I hope you are safe and sound wherever you want to be this holiday! I’ll be having lunch with my siblings and mom, as usual, and then off to my Husband’s Uncle’s house for a few hours, then to my mother in law’s for the evening! I hope you’re having as great of a day as I am, and that your day is absolutely perfect!
If you’re going Black Friday shopping tomorrow, please be safe, be smart, and pick up some nice yarn for me! :D
