In case you need further assistance on what “BL only” means in our Sock Tutorial we made this special tutorial just for you!
We will show you how to work in both the back and front loops of a stitch and how this affects the look of the row. Unless a pattern specifies otherwise, always work under both loops.
Back Loop Only – (BL only)
Front Loop Only – (FL only)
It’s fun to play around with working in the BL and FL of stitches and see what effects you can make. I love working in the BL only when working on a project that switches colors. It allows the color from the previous row or round to shine and not get covered up by the next row’s (or round’s) color.
We in the Northern Hemisphere sure are ready for Spring and our friends in the Southern Hemisphere are getting ready to hunker down for winter. What seasonal projects are you working on?
We made a pretty big decision recently at The Firefly Hook. We don’t want to have a website with ads to earn income from what we do. We want to create with you, help you learn something about crocheting, and get you excited about inspiring others!
