New & Having Issues

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm new here and having an issue with fsc.   Let me first say that I have been crocheting  on and off since I was 7.  But crocheting steady for the last 2 years or so and I like to think getting pretty good.  I have done the fdc with no problems but the FSC is killing me and I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.  It curls.  In hind sight maybe not too big a deal since it is the foundation of a yoke or neckline, but I would prefer it to be straight.  Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?  If I make the first pull through for the chain too loose then I get big holes.  If I do it a little tighter it curls.  

Thanks so much!

Welcome to the 'ville! :hi 

It looks plenty loose, so I don't think that's the problem. 

I avoid using foundation stitches because I don't like the way it looks, but that's just me and I know that there are a lot of fans of the technique.  My two cents :2c is that the way the stitch is made, not across a straight line but rather into the side of a stitch, causes it to curl initially.  But subsequent rows will straighten it out.
