How to count stitches

Check your work is cor­rect

Simply Crochet - - YOUR GUIDE -

Be­ing able to count your stitches is very im­por­tant and helps you to en­sure that you’re fol­low­ing a pat­tern cor­rectly. It’s a good idea to count your stitches at the end of ev­ery row. To count short stitches such as dou­ble cro­chet, look at the plaited tops (see above right). For taller stitches, count the up­right ‘stems’ – each ‘stem’ is counted as a stitch (see right).
