Understanding the Causes of Crocheting Curves

Knowing the underlying cause of an issue is key to preventing it in future. Curves in crochet have several causes, including uneven tension, using the wrong number of stitches, and using the wrong size of hook for your yarn thickness.

Even beginner crocheters are often acutely aware of tension and stitch counts, but improper hook sizes can easily pass under the radar and cause havoc with your piece.

It is therefore essential to size your crochet hook properly. Below, we will dive into how to pick the right size. It can also be helpful to start with crochet blanket kits, thus ensuring you are beginning with the right sizes.

Choosing the Right Hook and Yarn Combination

By choosing the right hook and yarn combination, you are setting yourself up for success, rather than hours of unpicking. For an easier option, consider starting with crochet blanket kits instead.

You can think about crochet hooks and yarns as a balancing act. If your hook is too big, you can find yourself with loose crocheting large gaps, and a larger-than-intended end result.

Conversely, if you use too small a hook, the opposite is true. You can end up with a very dense piece, using more yarn than expected, and struggling to pull stitches.
