Why is it crooked

While crocheting straight I noticed it doesn’t stay straight form some reason. Why is that?

It may be tension differences along the chain, sometimes this happens to me and I just stretch it a bit to clear it up.

It may be your chain, try using a bigger hook size when making the chain, then switch to your smaller hook, and continue crocheting

the chains are to tight and the sc are losser
use a larger suzed hook when chaining then use the regular sized hook when sc or other stiches

I skip the foundation chain completely and use foundation crochet Especially when the pattern starts with “chain 500…”.

Funny when chainless appear I was already crocheting like that over 30 yrs ago. It is great especially for blankets.

Most people do their chains too tight and their stitches loose, so it ends up looking wonky.

Alternate solution, if foundation crochet is not doable for some reason, do the chain in a larger hook than called for, then do the stitches themselves in the smaller hook size the pattern calls for

This always happens to me and im consistent with my tension and all that. I just give it a little tug and stretch it a lil bit and ot goes back to how it should be :slight_smile: also, the more rows you do, the straighter it will naturally become!

Edit: when crocheting into the chain, flip the chain over and there will be a loop in the middle. Crochet into there and not only does it solve your problem, it makes the edge nice and neat!
