Good evening! I started knitting in late Sept. and decided that I wanted to learn to crochet as well. I am in the process of making DH the Afghan Squared afghan, which is one large Granny Square. It is going well, and I decided that I wanted to make the Granny Poncho and Cap for my DD’s 5th birthday.
I went to the store today and bought my yarn, but am already having trouble with the pattern. I think I have the first two rounds figured out, but when I get to the3rd round, I keep messing up with the sc. I think I can figure that out with a bit of practice, though. The big problem is that one motif is supposed to equal 3-1/2 ins. and mine equals 2-3/4 ins. I am using a sz. H hook like the pattern calls for and am not sure how I adjust. I know that I am a tight knitter. Can you be a tight crocheter (is that a word?) as well? PLEASE - any advice would be so welcomed. I am in love with this poncho and really want to make it work for my DD.
