Mother of two who crafts in her spare time. I spin, knit and crochet for the most part, always wanting to keep busy with my hands. It is both a hobby and a passion.

I craft every day, its a hobby and yet its so much more at the same time. Its relaxation, its challenging, its fun. Its all of these things, and I am looking forward to sharing all I make with you.

When you started crocheting, did you decrease when you weren't aware you were? I'm just starting crochet and I have an issue where each row gets smaller and smaller, what am I doing wrong?

And when you crochet if you wrap the yarn the wrong way on the hook, why is that a disaster?

In a word, yes. Its difficult to know exactly what the issue you are having is, as it may be several things. Personally I wasn't seeing the last stitch in the row as one I needed to work into, often because it was a turning chain and my brain wasn't seeing it like the lovely v at the top of the other stitches. This issue being complicated by some patterns counting the turning chain as a stitch, and others don't. And some patterns expect you to know which of those two they want you to do without telling you. Some want you to work into the stitch your starting chain comes out of, others don't, and again are not always explicit about which it is. I am working on a pattern that has switched between the two at different times. It is something that comes with practice. My advice is to fond a video on youtube that's very clear and you can see how to count your stitches. Are you a member of ravelry.com? Their forums are great for helping you figure things out. 

Honestly, I have no clue on this one. Personally I would assume that as long as you wrap consistently in the same direction there is no 'right' direction, but it will affect how your stitches look.
