Free Crochet Techniques Questions and Answers


Oh no! You notice that your test swatch's overall measurements are too small when you measure it! Which technique is most frequently suggested to help you crochet larger stitches?

Correct! Wrong!

The majority of crocheters establish a rhythm and tension in their stitches. Although looser stitches can still be used, most people find that as they become more and more into the rhythm, they begin to make smaller and smaller stitches. Although using two strands is certainly an option, doing so will typically result in increased costs for you. You could definitely add more stitches and take more time if you are proficient at reading the pattern. Generally speaking, using the larger hook is just simpler.

Keeping with acronyms, what is the common stitch that "sc" stands for?

Correct! Wrong!

Most patterns also include the following additional stitches: sl st (slip stitch), dc (double crochet), ch (chain), and sp (space). By no means is this an exhaustive list.

If you were making a thread doily, which size hook from the ones listed would you use? (The answers combine metric and US data)

Correct! Wrong!

Hooks come in a variety of sizes. In thread crochet, size 7 (4.5 mm) is most often requested (again, check your gauge!). Converting from US to metric is challenging. A hook size of E (3.5 mm) is suitable for use with fine yarns. A J hook (6 mm) works well with heavier yarns or larger stitches. U hooks are the largest hooks; they have a diameter of 25 mm, or one full inch.

What is the common term (US usage) for 4-ply yarn when searching for yarn?

Correct! Wrong!

Even in patterns that call for sport or baby yarn, I usually use worsted-weight yarn because it comes in the widest range of colors. It's also more understanding if you make a mistake and have to unravel several rows!

This "relatively" simple pattern is one that many people begin by crocheting.

Correct! Wrong!

The granny square is a very adaptable pattern. The various varieties and styles of granny squares are covered in entire pattern books. There are many different types of basic afghans, sweaters, and doilies that you can make. If you have extra yarn from other projects, this scrap granny square afghan would make a thoughtful gift.

When I create something, I usually use patterns. Many acronyms are used in crochet patterns. What does "yo" mean in full?

Correct! Wrong!

You have to know the lingo to be able to follow any crochet pattern. The abbreviations save space because a pattern has so many variations.

You now have the ideal bedspread to sew. The yarn is to your liking, and the measurements are perfect. As a meticulous crocheter, you create a test swatch to ensure the desired size is achieved. What are you doing, in terms of crocheting?

Correct! Wrong!

When sewing sweaters and other fitted patterns, it's crucial to check your gauge. It's not generally recommended if you are going for a specific size, but to be honest, I don't usually check my gauge when I make an afghan. It's just a personal preference of mine.
