Am I crocheting inside out?
I’ve been getting asked this question a lot recently… and when I get the same question more than once, I know it’s time for a blog post!
It’s pretty common for folks on discussion boards to say that you have to crochet with the right side facing out. This makes beginners feel very anxious when they are crocheting with the right side on the inside of the work.
Good news! There’s no right way to crochet, as long as you know which side is the right side and turn your piece appropriately before you are finished.
So, today, I’ve created a little video for you about crocheting inside out. (click on the rectangle in the lower right corner of the video frame to watch in full screen)
I hope the video has shown you the two possibilities, and convinced you that ‘crocheting inside-out’ isn’t a big deal!
