What does it mean to crochet in the front loops only?
The Front Loop Single Crochet is a variation of the basic single crochet stitch. It creates a twined ridge along the surface of the fabric if repeated for several rows. This stitch can be used as an independent element of a pattern, or as a pattern in and of itself, as seen in our sample.
Do you not join rounds in crochet?
Usually it means that instead of an slst and chaining, you just continue with your pattern in a spiral. It’s SUPER helpful to use chain markers in this situation! Just keep working in a spiral. When you finish a round, don’t slip stitch your last stitch to the first one.
Does crochet look the same on both sides?
When you work in rows, you’ll turn your work after every row. This means that you will see both the right and wrong sides of the stitches on alternate rows. The look is the same if you choose to work joined rounds while turning your work.
