another knitter wanting to learn. . . I thought i would post here instead of another newbie thread.
My issue is hooking the yarn and pulling through. i think i hold it too loose in my left hand, and then i end up having to use the nail on my pointer left finger to pull the loops over the YO. any tips on how to trust the hook to pull the yarn through? should i go up a size (i was using peaches n cream and a 5.5 mm wood hook) I really want to crochet a babett inspired afghan (a granny square afghan with 3 different size squares.) THANKS!
