Whether working in the round or in rows, we’ve all asked ourselves these same questions…

Does this count as a stitch?

Where do I join in the round?

Where do I stop when working in rows?

If you’re tired of trying to figure this out AFTER your project has too few stitches (or too many…), we’ve got a tip for you!

When working in the round:

  • If your chain counts as a stitch, place 1 stitch marker into the 3rd chain! This will mark the top of your first stitch, and this is where you will join at the end of your round!
  • If your chain does not count as a stitch, place 1 stitch marker into the loop on your hook (shown in above guide). This will mark the top of your first stitch, and this is where you will join at the end of your round!

When working in rows:

  • If your chain counts as a stitch, place 1 stitch marker into the 3rd chain! This will mark the top of your first stitch, and this is where you work your last stitch in the next row!
  • If your chain does not count as a stitch, place 1 stitch marker into the loop on your hook (shown in above guide).This will mark the top of your first stitch, and this is where you work your last stitch in the next row!
