|Front and Back Loops
We have discussed previously front and back loops. But this is a confusing topic, so it can't hurt to look at it again.
After you have made a few rows, look at your practice piece.
On top, you will see what looks like " ( )".
These are your loops..
(Mine have a tendency to not be directly on top of my swatch but laying towards me)
The loop closest to you is the front loop. "("
The loop farthest from you is the back loop. ")"
What do these loops do?
They make ridges in your piece. Scary.
If you do not want ridges,
then use both loops to crochet in.
