Crochet Secrets to Not Twisting Your Starting Chain
 
01:49
When doing your first chain and the ends needs to be connected together, nearly all patterns are specific to say not to twist the chain. It's easy to chain but if you don't control the end of the chain, it can twist and sometimes be a real pain to untwist before joining. In the tutorial, I show you that I am starting with 10 chains. I drop the loop and insert the hook into the end of the chain. Then pick up the loop and begin to chain again. By doing this, you can ensure the end of the chain is correct. So even if he middle of the chain twists, the two ends are not... So you just have to untwist the middle of the chain but be confident that the ends are positioned properly to do so.

Steam Block Your Crochet or Knit Projects
 
08:46
The difference of pre-steamed projects to after steam projects is really quite noticeable.  The steam forces the fibres to open up and breathe and the as the steam wears off, the fibers compact back into position but taking to the new shape that was created with your stitch work.  Fibers are originally steamed as a straight strand as it's balled up. However, after you knit and crochet, you have applied new bends and curves in the strand. The steam opens the fibers up as it's in the new stitch configuration and relaxes back into position but now the yarn understands it has a new shape.  For garments, the project will hang better. For tassels and fringe, it will straighten up the fibers to get them to relax into a hanging position. For afghans and granny squares, it makes the project sit better when on display.  The steamer used as purchased at Walmart and is a Conair Steamer. It was fairly inexpensive.
