Per your request I am introducing myself. I live in New Mexico and I first picked up a crochet hook at about 13 years old. This week I decided to pick up a crochet project I started several years back thinking I knew the stitch that I was using but was apparently wrong. 😞 Now I have about a yard of fabric completed and cannot continue. So I thought I would look for some assistance online and that led me to your site. Please let me know if you think you might be able assist. I am attaching a photo of the work I've done to see if you can tell what kind of stitch I was using. I wasn't using a "formal pattern or stitch". I just knew I would like an afghan for my living room and decided to crochet it myself with a simple stitch that I "thought" was a simple double crochet. Obviously that was incorrect since when I added a couple rows of double crochet it did not match my previous work. I have looked through a lot of crochet photographs and have found nothing similar in appearance to what I did previously. I really like, not only the appearance of the previous work but I love the soft drape of it and it feels exactly like what I wanted when I started the whole project. I have also ripped out several rows in an attempt to deconstruct what I was doing previously but I am just not experienced enough to figure it out. I would appreciate any help or guidance that can be provided. On the first photograph I have circled an area where there is a diagonal thread on the back side that creates a small opening. That opening is skipped and I was stitching into the next "opening/stitch". I'm pretty sure I was wrapping the thread over the hook and inserting it in the next stitch but from there I'm lost. Thank you, Patricia
