I’ve crocheted before. I crochet well. I’m no newbie though it’s been a while. But I’m insanely frustrated by one issue I keep having on larger projects, like the crocodile stitch hooded cape I just started, which have long foundation chains (177 in this case.)
The problem is not my working tension, I can crochet a consistently good foundation chain. The problem is that I’ll be working along,nice tension as I said, and then a section of chain I’d already done gets pulled taut, ruining the tension of already worked chain. Happens either later in the chain row or as I’m working that first row into the chain (which, in this case happens to be V stitches? And so I’ll start over, and then it happens again. So, how can I keep the chains I’ve already made from being pulled, or fix it when that does happen? Any suggestions? (Unfortunately, searching the web has not found any answers, which is why I’m asking here.)
Thanks for any help you can give!
