Anyone a crocheter?
Or anyone know of a site like this for crocheting? I have been instructed to "go through next st" and I'm not sure how to do this.

Thanks.

Yes, I crochet. [but this likely belongs in the Crochet thread?]

When the directions say, Go through the next stitch, they mean: Well, each stitch on the previous row looks like a little sideways horseshoe, right? One horseshoe overlaps the next. These instructions want you to take your crochet hook, push it under both prongs of the next horseshoe-shaped stitch [just beyond the horseshoe you finished doing your last stitch in], then hook your yarn and bring it under the horseshoe, making a loop on your crochet hook that is now ready to figure in whatever your current stitch should be.

Remember. Under both sides of the horseshoe, unless the instructions say specifically to do different.

Sorry, I didn't notice a crochet thread.

Thanks for the quick response. I'm going to give it a shot.

Ok, let me see if I'm understanding this. Am I basically just inserting the hook as if I were going to crochet the next stitch as usual? And then yo and pull through - just like a regular stitch? But instead of continuing the stitch I'm left with 2 loops on my hook? I think I'm confusing mysef when I read my instructions. Is the part in brackets basically telling me how to go through the next st?

Here's my instructions:
Ch 1, go through next st, *[yo, pull through (2 loops on hook), yo, go through next st, yo, pull through (4 loops on hook), yo, pull through all 4 loops, yo, go through same st)* Repeat from * all the way around the hat, then join with sl st.

Is this the same thing as Working in a space (sp)? I see instructions for doing this in my how to book.

Generally a space is a small hole left by doing a chain on the previous row (or round). If my understanding of what you've written of the instructions is correct, you're going to do this :

Chain one
Put your hook in the next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop
-you now have 2 loops on your hook-
Yarn over
Put your hook (with 3 loops on it) into the adjacent stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop
-you now have 4 loops on your hook-
Yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on your hook

Now, in my understanding, where it says at the very end, before the )*, to "go through the same stitch", you're working in 2 stitches per bubble (for lack of a better term)...the same stitch they're referring to is the second stitch of the bubble. So you're going to start your next cluster or pattern stitch in the second stitch that they had you put your hook through.

I worked up a tiny little swatch and this is how I interpreted the pattern.

Yes, it's like working the next stitch. You hit it right on the first try!

And a space is generally, like alleuson says, created when you chain one or more ch sts between two regular [sc, dc, trc, etc.] stitches.

Keep it up! Crochet is far more stable and goes lots more quickly than most knitting. Less stretchy, too.
