Why is my Tunisian crochet slanting?

Do all Tunisian crochet stitches curl?

Tunisian crochet is a beautiful way to create waffle-like fabric that looks kind of like knitting. Since the stitches are worked on just one side, Tunisian crochet does have a tendency to curl. Fortunately, you can make a few minor adjustments when you’re crocheting to minimize curling.

Is it normal for crochet to curl?

The most common reasons crochet edges curl is because tension is too tight (gauge is off), the foundation chain stitches are too tight, there are not enough stitches crocheted in the round, and increases or decreases are inconsistently crocheted in the round.

How do I stop my crochet blanket from curling?

Instead of tossing your work away in a heap of frustration, try blocking it. With some yarns, such as wool, blocking loosens up the fibers, allowing you to stretch out any curls. One way to prevent curled corners is by simply loosening your stitches.

How do you keep rounds even in crochet?

For All Stitches (SC, HDC, DC)

  1. Option 2: Turn every round.
  2. Joining with a slip stitch and chains then turning your piece after each round will keep the seam straight and is a great option if you’re designing your own sweater or if the pattern you are using already turns each round.
