Your question: Why is my crochet going diagonal?

Why is my crochet going at an angle?

Crochet blankets can come out slanted, crooked, or warped for a number of reasons. You may have accidentally missed making or added extra stitches into the beginning or the end of a row. Your tension could have changed due to your position, a change in the hook you were using, or a change in yarn color.

How do you avoid seams when crocheting in the round?

For All Stitches (SC, HDC, DC)

  1. Option 2: Turn every round.
  2. Joining with a slip stitch and chains then turning your piece after each round will keep the seam straight and is a great option if you’re designing your own sweater or if the pattern you are using already turns each round.

Is it normal for crochet to curl?

The most common reasons crochet edges curl is because tension is too tight (gauge is off), the foundation chain stitches are too tight, there are not enough stitches crocheted in the round, and increases or decreases are inconsistently crocheted in the round.
