  1. Hi Anna Marie, You count the stitches in the order that you come to them (not the order they were worked) – so you count the tops of the stitches – not the posts of the stitch. So look for the top loops of the stitch and count them as you reach them when you are crocheting. I hope that makes sense!! I’m not sure if this will help but in this crossed double crochet stitch you can see how the tops of the stitches hold different positions from the posts. Work with the tops of the stitches when you are skipping 🙂 https://oombawkadesigncrochet.com/crossed-double-crochet-afghan-block-8×8-inch/ Best wishes, Rhondda

  2. Hello, I love your tutorials. I have a question. I have always had trouble doing cables in crochet. For some reason I’m not getting it. I’m doing the acetic Dream Earflap Hat. I just finished round 3. Now this is were it gets me confused. I got the ch3 then it says sk4 , I get confused about the counting when there are cables. Do you count the sts that are closest to you and then the back ones? Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  3. Hi Vicki, I think I know where you mean. Right at the very top of the stitch – try keeping your working loop that is on the hook before you wrap your yarn overs, snug (not too tight so it can’t move but very snug) then after you wrap your yarn overs (for the stitch you are doing) allow your project to fold slightly towards your hook as you insert your hook around the post to keep your working yarn closer to your post stitch. We need to reduce the gap there between the top of the stitch and the stitch you are working so it doesn’t make the first loop on the hook (the working yarn loop from the very beginning) stretch out and gape. Another trick I use is I place one of my fingers on the yarn overs to keep them in place as I begin the stitch to keep the size of those loops the same as when they were wrapped (otherwise they tend to tighten up and cause the working loop to pick up the slack and create a big hole). Hope this helps! Rhondda – If you take a look at this video I filmed for my Donation Project Hats it uses a very tall stitch and it demonstrates how I work those taller stitches. https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=531&v=D-H_MC_VS5I&feature=youtu.be

  4. How do I prevent my FpDtr from having a large, loose loop on the last step of the stitch that leaves an unsightly gap?

  5. I absolutely love your stitch tutorials. They are so clear, clean and easy to follow.

    I wonder if you have ever heard of a Standing Double Crochet and if you can explain how to do it.
    Thank you.
