Me and SO got really into crocheting about 6 months ago. The same thing kept happening to me at first, it gets so much easier with time though, the handmovements become second nature.  We tend to drop new activities pretty fast though, so I now have a half finished blanket sitting in my room. Ah well, it was fun while it lasted 🙂 

Keep at it! You’ll have your scarf in no time!

Keep practicing that single chain over and over, you’ll get the hang of it. And since you’re just practicing do it loosely and don’t worry too much abouith ow you’re holding it or consistency, the more comfortable you get with chaining, you can start working on how tightly to hold the yarn. Also nit everyone holds things the same, my best friend and i hold our crichet hooks totallh different  Dont worry about other chain types yet, the first few things I made were completely single chains!

I’ve been crocheting for 16 years, and recently taught myself to knit.  I could crochet in the dark.  It definitely gets so much easier with practice!

Get a big ass hook. I’m serious. I had the same problem when I started and untill I got the motions down Iunraveled a lot of yarn. The big hook makes it easier to grab the whole peice. They sell them at Walmart. It’s big blue and plastic.  🙂
