Which do you prefer to do crochet in the rounds or rows? I prefer working rows.

I prefer rows,too because it can be hard at times doing rounds

For some reason when I work in rounds, you can see my connecting spot on each row and throughout the entire pattern. Yuck.

I like rows better. When working in rounds (like a round ripple) the more rows there are, the further it takes to get thru each row. For some reason, that really gets to me (the never ending row)

Rows, definitely.

 

I worked my first round this week, however, and it went alright (I think).

Rounds!! I still have to count a lot when I work in rows. :P

 

As to the seam showing in rounds, yeah... It does. But if you don't count the chain as a stich, and work an extra sc/dc/whatever "over" that chain, it's better... I really didn't explan that well... Sorry. :P

Either in crochet; but whenever I can take a flat knitted pattern and work it in the round (lets say for wearables) I do.

I don't mind doing either, although I hate it when the round doesn't lay like it should!

I don't mind working in rows but I LOVE rounds. I always try to find a way to make something that is worked in rows and convert it to rounds.

Either is fine with me. What I don't like doing are a lot of squares or hexagons! :thumbdown

I like working in rows. I am making the Cathedral Rose right now and its at the point that the rounds seem never ending. I get tired of it and end up setting it aside for long periods of time, so I dont think it will ever get done:eek

I like rounds because usually you're increasing a lot. I like to have the variety of having to count. I don't get that in rows very much. Also I can work with different colors in rounds but I can't get it in rows.

I like rows better, I don't have to count as much :-)

Definitely rows...I find that if I do rounds I get all confused about where you're supposed to "join with a slip stitch." I always end up with more stitches than I'm supposed to have.

I like both, but rows are easier for me. I still sometimes mess up the joining of the round. I also really like the turning of my work at the end of a row for some reason. :D

I don't have a preference really. Regardless of which one I do I always have to count my stitches before starting the next row/round as I"m bad about losing stitches. I think rows might be a little harder for me because I have trouble doing the first/last stitches because I forget how they're supposed to be done by the time I get there.

I prefer rounds, for some reason they go faster than when I do rows

I voted rows, sometimes rounds are a bit tricky, but I do have to admit when I make a small project in rounds (hats, oreos) I am amazed at how quick it is, sometimes I think rounds are somehow quicker than rows

I generally prefer rows. Rounds are okay, just find rows easier :)

Rounds seem easier - I always lose stitches in rows, but you can fake it with rounds much more easily- at least with the toys I make.

I think I like rounds the best...I always mark the beginning of the round with a stitch marker. Rows of sc, I always get goofed up on. I do better with rows of hdc or dc. I always lose that last stitch with sc when I turn..grrrr.

I prefer rounds.

When you add a row of say, dc, you increase the length of your piece by, say 3/4 inch (for example). If you do one ROUND, the overall diameter grows by at least and inch, if not an inch and a half.
