  1. Thank you all for your replies :-) I have decided it is a tension issue - getting looser - as my work is a bit more holey than at the beginning. I am not using a slip stitch but rather going round and round. I will try and crochet a bit tighter, but I'm a little worried about this as the hook is quite fine for me, and the wool is fluffy-ish so not a good combination for fine work. But I will give it a go and update you how things look! Thanks once again, and wishing everyone a productive and crochet filled day :-)

  3. Hi, I am crocheting my first pattern in the round (my second ever project). As I work on the pattern - currently about 10 rows, it is getting wider than the foundation row. It is a pair of gloves, starting at the wrist, so I am concerned that it will be too large and baggy by the time I get to the hand. I don't mind it being loose, but I would like it to stay on my hand! The pattern looks quite loose fitting. Do I need to crochet tighter, or will it just all be ok in the end? I am not sure about doing much more until I understand if it will be ok as I currently work on it or if I need to change something. The hook is 2.5mm and the yarn is 4ply (fingering weight). Thank you in advance for any response to help me learn
  4. Hi, I am a teach myself crocheter who can do ok but somehow things don't often look exactly like I picture them when I start. My only large project to date is a short cardigan which is lovely and very warm. I am now working on some fingerless gloves and will post a question in another forum about problems I might be having! I am looking forward to learning a lot! Jackie.
