HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

ABBREVIATIONS:


ch = chain (s)

Tdc = tunisian double crochet

Sl st = slip stitch (tutorial)

Sk = skip

St = stitch (es)

yo = yarn over

 

STITCHES YOU WILL NEED: 


TUNISIAN DOUBLE CROCHET (Tdc):

Yo, insert hook in next stitch, yo and pull up a loop, yo, pull through 2. 

 

Each time you repeat, you’ll add 1 extra loop on the hook.

STANDARD TUNISIAN RETURN (return):

Yo, pull through 1, *yo, pull through 2*, repeat from *to* until you have 1 loop on the hook. 

 

WHERE IS THE FRONT VERTICAL BAR?

After crocheting the first return pass, you should be able to see distinct vertical bars. One in the front of the work (the front vertical bar) & one in the back (the back vertical bar). 

 

CROCHET IN NEXT SPACE

Refers to the space (hole) made by a yarn over on the previous row.
You should then insert the hook in the space when crocheting the stitch instructed to “crochet in next space”.
