    Hi there
    I could really use your insight Mikey. I just started crocheting a few months ago and have a question; when I crochet something I usually want to add a simple, single crochet stitch border to clean up the edges but the corners are a puzzle as I want to have neatly defined corners but I can’t find a tutorial that tells me what to do. Most just tell me to put three stitches into the corner but that is as far as it goes and they go too fast for me to observe properly so..

    So after I have made my final stitch in the row, do I add another stitch then do s single crochet into that turning chain, chain 1 then do another single crochet into the turning chain or do I put the last of the three stitches into the first space along the side.

    If you have a tutorial I would really love to see how you do that please.

      In the final stitch of a row, you will add 2nd and 3rd to it and then turn your project to continue around. If the end of the row is a turning chain, you will put the 3 sc into the top of that chain. I normally do this practice in my work on YouTube.

    Hi Mikey! I just want to say thank you and tell you what a great teacher you are. I always wanted to learn to crochet better but I had difficulty understanding written patterns. I’m dyslexic and trust me the struggle is real lol But watching your tutorials and reading from your website has helped me to notches unknown. Thank you

    • Mikey

      You sure can. We don’t have a rule where it says you need to credit us for the assets.
