I have to go up a hook size in general because I crochet very tight. My Clue #2 motifs were around 9-10 inches when completed using an "I" hook but I stretched it to be 11 inches when I blocked. So, do I stay with the same hook for Clue #3 (looks like its going to also measure 11 inches) and stretch it? or go up another hook size "J" to get it closer to 11 inches the first time around...........?
I would recommend using the same hook you used for Clue 2, because this motif also needs to be loose.
yes, but I stretched the heck out of Clue 2 for it to be 11 inches using an 'I' hook (I got ahead of myself and finished all 6 before measuring ) By going up another size, would that end up messing up the seams when it comes to attaching?
You don't have to have exactly the same number of rows or stitches to seam motifs together. We will have tutorials and videos available for seaming as well.
If you are stretching your motifs too much, the yarn could be stretched too thin. Maybe you should just add some extra rows of single or half-double crochet to make the motifs larger, so they fit in the template?
