  1. Past hour
  2. When you see a line of a pattern like the one you quoted, "row 1: "do stuff"--38 stitches" it means after "doing stuff" your stitch count should be 38--it's a sort of sanity check to make sure you have the right number of stitches at that point, not telling you to make 38 more stitches.

    sI’m working on a wrap and now I’m stuck. I’m working on a wrap called ARAN TOGGLE WRAP LEFT FROnT Ch 39. (Note: if you work into the “bumps” on the wrong side of the ch instead of into the front of the ch, you can ch 38 here and ch 4 instead of 5 on Rows 3 and 5.) Row 1 (WS): Slip st in 2nd ch from hook and in next ch, sc in next ch, hdc in next ch, dc in each of the next 34 ch, turn – 38 sts not sure if I start a new piece or and it to where?
  5. I’m new to this group. I’ve been crocheting on and off for a longtime. I just got back into it now I need help.
  6. I’ve seen many discussions on this and I’m in the minority as far as having multiple projects going at one time. You’re in good company 😉I’m the weirdo
  7. Thanks so much everybody! It's very nice to have such a warm welcome. And Lilol, that's very good advice, as rude as it sounds I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem. Maybe one thing at a time would work out better for me.
  8. 2 pocket linings are made first, which are 23 dc across and worked in rows until they are 4.5" inches deep. It's OK to post a line or 2 of a pattern, so I'll do that - my notes in red, also added some bolding for orientation. Place pocket: Next row: (WS). Ch 2. 1 hdc in each of first 10 (12- 12-14-16-18) hdc of the body (see diagram, it's made in 1 piece up to the armholes, the diagram has 2 short horizontal lines on the jacket fronts where the pocket tops will be). 1 hdc in each of 23 hdc from Pocket Lining. (so you stop working across the body and veer off to the lining) Skip
  9. Forgot to add, on the link I gave you, there is a menu on the right hand side, if you click on 'standard yarn weight system' it tells you which hook size range are typically used for each US yarn weight class.
  10. Just in case, here are steel hook sizes, which are normally for doily-size thread but there's some overlap in the bigger steel thread hooks and smaller yarn hooks (which are usually aluminum, plastic or sometimes wood). https://www.craftyarncouncil.com/standards/steel-crochet-hook-crochet-thread-sizes
  11. Are you crocheting with yarn or thread?
  12. I found a wiki page that lists the sizes. It shows (2) 2.75mm (3) 3.25 mm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_standard_crochet_hook_and_knitting_needle_sizes
  13. Hello and welcome! Cute little piggies ❤️Maybe try making smaller things that you’re more likely to finish. I don’t start multiple projects like many do. When I used to do that I would end up never finishing most of them.
  14. Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn. I make tons of toys and this yarn is softer than Red Heart Super Saver yet gives the same size and look.
  15. I recently downloaded a pattern that said I needed a hook NO2 and No3. Does anyone know what size this is in mm?
  16. I haven't tried Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice yet. I will keep it in mind! I use Red Heart quite a bit for most of my crochet projects. When I make stuffed animals, I use soft yarn.
  17. Thank you. The teddy bear can be a gift for someone.
  18. I do not like the Celtic Weave stitch. It makes a beautiful pattern but is so time consuming and fidgety.
  19. I like most stitches, but especially like the Moss stitch. It's fast going and so easy and relaxing to me. The Crystal Wave is a very pretty stitch but quite the yarn hog too. The Paris stitch and the Suzette stitch are also stitches I really like. I better quit here. Basically, I guess don't really have one favorite stitch. LOL
  20. When I need to make something in a little bit of a rush, I use Red Heart's Soft. It's one of the few brands I can fine in my area. One of my all time favorites for throws and afghans is Lion Brand- Vanna's Choice, mostly for it's ease of use and care and the wide range of colors. For baby blankets and scarves I like to use a 3 weight acrylic like Lion Brand-Ice Cream line. Their Cotton-Bamboo yarn is nice and soft too. I don't like using wools for baby's or small children due to sensitivities. Knitpicks.com has some nice yarns also in different weights that I've used several times.
  21. Just adorable and my favorite color.
  22. Welcome to Crochetville from the Gulf Coast of Florida. Grab your yarn and hooks, put your feet up and sit a spell. We are always so glad to meet new friends.😁 There are times when we all will start a project and then go to something else instead of finishing.
