Yarn Overs and Pull Throughs
Hope you don’t mind the phrase “Yarn over…. and pull through…” because you’re going to be hearing, reading, and repeating it to yourself an awful lot through these lessons. If you’ve been following along so far you’ve got your hook and you’ve got your light-colored worsted weight yarn – the material of your choice.
Still not convinced to use a lighter color? As a person that adores my darker colors, when I wanted to learn to crochet I wanted a glorious dark gray for my very first scarf. I bought a skein of the perfect dark shade and thought I would just learn as I made my scarf. I failed almost immediately. My stitches didn’t line up; I was “off count” each row. My scarf was losing stitches every row I finished. Frustrated, I realized how hard it was for me to see each stitch clearly. Back to the store I went, I picked out an ugly light brown, and well.. here I am today. The lighter color isn’t a fashion statement, it’s merely to help you distinguish each stitch until you finish learning and can dive into all those pretty yarns you’ve been drooling over at the store.
