Hello all! I've been working on a tunic for several weeks now but keep running into difficulties with the pattern. The pattern has a side pattern motif made of a crochet round, outlined by yarn strips using a hairpin lace loom. There are some additional rows of crochet, and then a hairpin lace band. My first issue has been with the first set of strips. This is my first time using a hairpin lace loom, so perhaps I should have made these loops smaller (I made them four inches on an adjustable loom). Also, the pattern calls for making 136 loops for a size 6. In trying to adjust the sizing for myself, I made 182 in order to make the motif large enough for a size 14-16. However, now that I'm ready to join these two pieces together, I realize that there are about double the number of chain spaces on the hairpin lace band as there are on the circle piece. I'm not sure how to go about joining without making the band pucker. Should I redo the entire crochet circle with more stitches throughout? If so, how should I adjust this from an initial chain 6 to start out? Any help is very appreciated! I don't want to scrap this whole project.
Crocheting in the round can be pretty and practical, because you get a straight front side and a back side, rather than getting a front row and then a back row in your pattern. If you want to lean, there is a block post about crocheting in the round here It can be a little hard to learn from pictures, so there is also a video about crocheting in the round here If you are not into long tutorials, there is a short version here, where you can learn to crochet in the round in 20 seconds Thank you for reading, and happy hooking ^^
