I found some bulky weight (Lion Brand Homespun, if it helps) in a beautiful variegated teal color that I cannot seem to be able to work with. I had been trying with a K hook (as a 'noob' I only have a K and a G hook right now) and make the loosest possible chain I can. I get my first row started ok, but when it comes to doing the second I seem to lose all the stitches and end up with too many or too few.... I have such a hard time figuring out what is a stitch and what is just the ripple in the yarn!!
Does anyone have any tips/tricks for working with this type of yarn?? I am hoping to avoid having to mark every single stitch if I can!!
