I’m so excited! You’ve kept on your adventure of learning crochet! I remember when I first started crochet, I kept having to review turning. I’m not sure why because it’s pretty simple. None the less, sometimes even the simplest of things need reviewed.
As a side note, you can find me on Instagram @AshleyDylanLife.
Turning with crochet is very easy. You chain as many as you need. That being a single crochet is one chain. A half double crochet is one to two chains. And a double crochet is two to three chains. The secret to figuring out how many chains you will need is for the stitch you are using is, how many chains does it take you to reach the tallness of your stitch? Once you figure that out, that’s how many chain stitches you use.
# of Turning Chains
|Stitch||# of Chains|
|Single Crochet||1 Chain|
|Half Double Crochet||1 to 2 Chains|
|Double Crochet||2 to 3 Chains|
After all that, you literally turn the project. Yeah, that’s right. You turn the project. Easy, simple. 😊

I’m curious. Is crochet easier or harder than you thought it would be and why?
