EDITOR’S TOP 5 T! PS
1. What’s Ease? Ease is the difference between the wearer’s body measurements and the finished measurements of the garment. Ease is necessary for a good fit, but it varies according to the style of the garment.
2. RS (right side), WS (wrong side): These terms refer to the side of the project that will be on the outside or the inside after the project is finished.
3. Highlight It! Using a highlighter to mark special stitches and notes in the patterns before beginning is a great way to prevent setbacks! It can also be helpful to mark repeat symbols and color changes.
4. Motifs! Before beginning an intricate motif it is a good idea to practice using yarn and a large hook.
5. Too Tight? To keep your beginning chain from being too tight (a very common problem in crochet), try making the beginning chain with a hook that is one size larger than the hook size called for in the materials list. Doing so will help ensure that your beginning edge is the same width as your ending edge.
