  • Patter I don't understand.

    I'm doing a pattern that says it is for beginners but I'm having a problem with the first row already. It says ch 32, row 1 ch1, turn, ch1, 1sc in 4th ch from hook, *ch 1, skip next ch, 1 sc in ch, repeat from * to end of row. I got it from the * on but I don't get ch 32 and then it says...

  • Re: The Official Petal Pullover Crochet-Along

    Hey, so things are looking up----I'm back from "a trip" to several LYSs & on my 5th stop, I bought 5 skeins of MerLin in "Crabapple"---which is a raspberry-red! It's a stand-out for sure! Red is my favorite color and so I'm swatching now--hoping to catch up to all...

    i actually just picked up enough hobby lobby sport, in a very similar pale blue, a couple of weeks ago for this same sweater :) i was thinking since is is 100% acrylic, i would actually work smaller guage rather than "to fit", to give some room for acrylic stretch & growth. thoughts?

    Hello. I've never done a crochet a long nor have I made something for me to wear! I've done baby sweaters, hats, booties, fingerless gloves as well as adult hats and scarves, a few shawls and afghans/coverlets galore over the past 40+ years. This pattern is beautiful and caught my interest. However...

    Hi, i just picked up the pattern for the Sprout Chains Shawlette a few days ago. I got my Crochet So Fine book several months ago and absolutely LOVE it! I'm going to Italy in May and am currently using the trip as an excuse to make a very nice cover-up for those churchy-tourist attractions (no paper...

    I started working on my gauge swatch today. I have some doubts about this yarn as a good sock maker. It's a little scratchy. Granted, I'm sensitive to wool, but I have found some wools more irritating than others, and I imagine one would want soft fibers for a sock. I'm not making these for...

    Are there alternative yarns you would recommend for those of us who don't do merino? Is there a comparable baby alpaca or blend? Since you don't mention yarn weight is this 0 or 1? I guess the word "lace" gives it away, but just want to confirm before I purchase something other than...
