How to tell if you’re Crocheting Inside Out

April 23, 2013

A while back when I was getting into crocheting a bit more, I realized that I might have been making my hats inside out.  I was really confused.  I wasn’t sure if there was a right or wrong, and had to search around a bit to figure it out.

Today’s Tuesday Tip is for any crocheters out there.  🙂  Is there a right way to crochet?  Ever wonder if you’re crocheting inside out?  YES!  You totally can.  Let me show you a visual of the difference.

First, let’s see the right side out.  It’s not totally “smooth”, with a slight texture (this is all assuming your not using a fancy stitch you’d other wise be able to obviously distinguish the pharmacy different between right and wrong.  This is half double crochet).

 
 
If you look at the inside of this hat, you’ll notice that it’s pretty smooth looking.  There isn’t any slight texture to the stitching, and the stitches blend together more.
 
 
 
 
I know it’s a little tricky to see the different, but hopefully that’s somewhat helpful to any that may run into the this problem, or have questions about it.  

As a side note, something like an afghan obviously isn’t the same.  When making a hat, or something along those lines, that’s when something like this will matter.  🙂

I hope this has been helpful!  Do you crochet?  If you do, what is your favorite thing to crochet?

    I so did that in the beginning 🙂 I even sold some things inside out… people LOVED the projects, though. Isn’t that funny? Thanks for linking up at this week’s Off the Hook!
