Crochet Pattern Making Study 1.

Understanding the Basic Math Behind Crochet.


As a novice crocheter I would wonder, well, how do they know which chain from the hook, in the foundation row, should the first stitch in row 1 be made in, and how do you know a multiple of what should the foundation chain be, and how do you decide how many chains should the turning chain contain?


Figuring out the basic math the crochet principles are based upon was a major breakthrough that made my crochet life so much easier 🙂


Why would you even care about the math when all you want to learn is how to crochet?  Because it will allow you to:


– follow patterns with a more thorough understanding of what it is you are doing;
– spot inaccuracies in patterns;
– fix mistakes you’ve made along the way;
– modify a pattern to your liking;
– design your own pattern.


Here’s a little chart of my notes to self; perhaps you too will find these helpful in a way:
