Buried Stitch

Question

Hi everyone!  I like to make hats for the Salvation Army.  Many hat bands call for the band to be a SC in BLO which gives it a nice ribbed effect.  But no matter what I do, it’s like the last stitch of the row gets buried and it’s hard to get to.  I don’t crochet tightly at all yet no matter what I try…loose last stitch from previous row, loose turning stitch…doesn’t seem to matter, it still gets buried.  I hope this makes sense.  I prefer to work with Caron’s Simply Soft yarn.

Put a marker in the top of that stitch as soon as it's made.  Then you'll be able to see it, and can pull up on the marker to open it up so you can work into it.  

I use locking stitch markers, but you can use a bobby pin or safety pin or similar, or a loop of yarn.
