Crocheting question....

Hi Ladies I am new to this board. I was wondering can I ask a question about crocheting or is this a knitting board?

If so, here it goes. I am new to crocheting (only know how to single, double and triple stitch). My question is I am having trouble with the edges of my work. Why do they never maintain a straight line???? For example, if I am practicing to make a blanket, the edges are all bumpy and uneven. I do the extra chain stitch when I turn the piece. Is it because I am not counting the rows across or am I turning wrong?

Thanks, hope i didnt sound too confusing. Wink

I am thinking maybe you are not counting the lines across and my be missing or adding a stitch here and there. But that is just my guess. I have that happen alot too

I have trouble with that. Particularly with the treble crochet. Sometimes a good hard blocking when the project is done helps.
