nutshellwords: Any Advice???
I need some advice. I crocheted a ball-shaped animal last week, then decided to make another one this week. I used the same pattern and yarn, but the second ball came out smaller by what seemed like 1-2 rounds. When I counted, they had the same number of rounds and the same number of stitches also per round. I’m thinking I must have pulled too tightly in the second one. Can anyone explain how this could have happened? :(

- kittykrochetofficialetsy answered: Did you use a differently sized hook? And what kind of yarn did you use?
- agirlnamedbob answered: Tension is everything. Were you stressed this week? Or relaxed last week?
- nutshellwords answered: Oh, I forgot to add: I used the same hook for both balls. :) Can humidity also contribute to this? It suddenly got extremely hot here.
- lizzieousbyillustration answered: It is probably a change in tension, the more confident I get with my corchet, the tighter my tension seems to get.
- chromocrochet answered: You’re likely correct - tightness of stitches can make a significant difference in your finished ami! You’ll improve at uniform stitching :)
- regenerate---me answered: Did you also use the same hook or a smaller one? That might have caused it as well.
