Turning chain making edging uneven please help!


Question

I'm crocheting a scarf in double crochet, but along the edges the turning chains stick out and make the sides look bumpy and wavy. I'm only chaining 3 and going into the 4th from the hook like your suppose to in DC. And I've been counting my stitches each row and being careful to not increase or decrease. So what am I doing wrong and how can I fix this problem?

the simplest fix would be to only chain 2 for the turning chain. sometimes 3 chains is too many. Also, remember the turning chain counts as the first dc so you will make the chain, then make a dc in the next stitch of the row below, not into the dc that the turning ch is based in. http://www.crochetcabana.com/tutorials/double-crochet.htm

 

there is also a way to start the new row without using a chain at all, it takes some practice. No-turning-chain-dc video here http://www.youtube.com/user/TXCr1cket

This is the method I use and I like it very well!

 

 

quoting myself :lol

 

I just used this on a baby blanket that I then went around the edge with a finish and having the chain edges was really nice to work with. Before my attempts at edging an afghan were ..well lets just say it wasn't very pretty.
