HELP!! I just can't do it.
I have a shawl pattern with homespun yarn & a size J crochet hook. I need to chain 139 first. I've twice ripped out my work because the chains "disappear" to my eye. Should I try a larger hook? I'm trying to chain loosely, but I still can't seem to "find" the stitches.
p.s. this is my first attempt with homespun yarn.
