Quick Tips

♥When working in ends, split the plies and work them in separately.  It’s a little more work but you won’t have any kind of visible bump and they are less likely to pop out.

♥When you are turning your work, always turn in the same direction; either away from you or towards you.  By doing this, your side stitches will always be twisted the same way, making it easier when you need to work in the side of your rows.

♥Keep a Post-It notepad in your crochet bag and stick one to your pattern. Move the sticky along as you progress in the pattern to help you keep your place. Also, you can make notes or tick marks for row repeats on the sticky and therefore keep your pattern clean for the next time you need it .♥
