crochet stitch requirements
June 25, 2019 at 1:01:40 AM
 
Hello. Totally new to stitchboard, and love the possiblities that come with this graph generator. I just wondered if someone might be able to clarify for me please... the stitch required when doing a crocheted afgan would be single crochet stitch, yeah? 

I also wondered if you could clarify for me also, that the 'count' on the generated colour palette refers to how many stitches of that particular colour, yeah?

I am pretty sure that the answers to both question as yes, but really want to make sure before I go and start on my design. I look forward to any and all replies.

Thanks kindly

Jodi,
Welcome! Smile
You got it!
We called it a "standard stitch" only because the UK calls a single crochet a double crochet. We felt this might cause less confusion.
And yes, we have stitch counts of each color. Smile
Feel free to post pics of any of your work so we can all drool! Wink

Thanks Admin for getting back to me so quickly!

I am just waiting for an order of yarn to arrive, and then I am going to start on my project.... I also have a feeling that I will be starting LOTS of projects now that I can make graphs of what I like or want to do! LOL!

I will be sure to share pics, but ask that you don't hold your breath ~ that would not be good for you haha!
