I can’t crochet. I’ve been trying for 2 weeks and my chain just keeps turning- so I’ve got 5 perfect chains then it twists for 3 chains then repeat and I don’t know why it’s happening.

I don’t wanna spend $20 on a class 😔

Don’t fret! Sometimes chains just go wonky (I’m…

ohhmannitslyssss My chains always used to twist when I first started, eventually I just gave up on it, I carried on with my project. They were as ugly as you can get, but they helped me see what I was doing wrong, and eventually I learnt how to avoid it.
 Just for reference, when I started I made much worse than a twisted chain. Once, my grandma started me on this project which basically required only going around in a big circle, somehow I managed to go the other way around and only noticed at the very end…

Don’t worry about any mistake you will make at first, just keep on trying and you will get better!

I need to fall in love and spend the rest of my life with a geek who likes to crochet because I have so many huge projects ideas to make, but I know I won’t find the motivation to do it all by myself.

I guess what I am trying to say is that I am taking applications…

Henry will understand. Crochet love is a strong bond. Stronger than most <3

<3 I guess that is easily solvable, let’s find me a job in Glasgow!
