Keep in mind that "crochet" is different than "knitting", so If you knit then try to learn crochet is can be (I think) difficult, only because I did "crochet" first then tried knitting (which I like better) here's a tut maybe it will help

I also think looking at different books and mags helps you see the stitches better. I know (for me) I have to sometimes see something over and over (by different people) before I finally have that A-Ha moment~! Hang in there... it is worth it!

learning to crochet
If you can learn to follow the instructions in a book, which you're going to have to do anyway in order to make projects, get "Donna Kooler's Encyclopedia of Crochet" and you'll find the illustrations in it will be most helpful. Very clear. One of the best books around. Good luck.

All my early rectangles did this. When in doubt, I count my stitches before I go to the next row. Hope this helps.

BTW, you don't have this problem with granny squares.

LOL, I feel the same way! I "know how" to crochet (basic stitches) but always seem to either lose or add stitches (I HATE to count!) I made a baby blanket a few months ago that came out shaped like an hour glass....... now the cat's blanket!


socks (still!)
baby afghans
HAP items
