Crochet tutorials?

Hello!

I am a proud self-taught knitter from this website!! Two and a half years ago I quit smoking and took up knitting! (ask me which habit is more addictive and expensive, though!:aww: )

I now want to teach myself how to crochet. I’ve got the “make a chain” bit and also the “single crochet” stitch, but I cannot figure out how to turn the work. I inadvertantly add / lose stitches unless I count each stitch every time I turn the work.

I’ve checked out the www.nextstich.com which is really helpful, but I haven’t found anything regarding specifically turning the work (how embarrasing).
Anyone self taught crocheters? Please help and thanks!

Someone in the crochet section had what seems to be your problem (since counting fixes it for you).

Lots of information here, too.
