  1. Past hour
  2. Looks great (and oops, I overlooked that the palm side is plain netting so isn't "the same"), and I'd love to see them when they're done! There's a show-and-tell section, more people would probably see & admire them if you post over there.
  3. ^ Agree. In traditional crochet pattern-writing, and pattern reading expectations, there should have been an asterisk denoting the start of the repeat, so " *2sc in first (stitch), sc in next (stitch),repeat around " would have been the normal/more accepted way to have expressed that. They did omit the word 'stitch', but it should have been understood if all the stitches in the prior row were the same.
  4. I already made the palm: I only have one ball of white thread and I don't want to remake the palm fingers again. I have the second hand to make and white is the main color (while pink is the accent). Despite that I will take your advice on the top fingers. You have helped me immensely. Thank you kindly for the help and advice, if you like I can show you the end result.
  5. Today
  6. Sounds like you are probably working in the round and the first round most likely consists of 6 sc. Next round you would place 2 sc in first sc of previous round, sc in next stitch, 2sc in next stitch, sc in next stitch, 2 sc in next stitch, sc in next stitch, join ch 1 (for a total of 9 sc made on this round) The next round you work 2 sc in first stitch of previous round, sc in next stitch, sc in next stitch----you repeat the 2 sc in next stitch, sc in next stitch , sc in next stitch sequence to end of round for a total of 12 sc in round.
  7. OK, making more sense now - so those are incomplete fingers, made lengthwise; I assume each finger will be seamed if they are made flat. So if you are making 4 fingers separately, I can make a guess how these might go together. But I was dead serious about reading the entire pattern thru before going farther, I don't want you cause you extra work because you followed my guess and then have the pattern to say something else and you have to start over. I can see from the photo the front and back of the palm are made separately, flat and seamed, and the fingers look to be seamed as well. My guess is below, it is the most efficient seaming I can think of: Make 4 finger tops and 4 finger bottoms (long rectangles, probably different lengths for each finger). (Top/back of the hand side): Line up the the 4 finger tops in the order the pattern tells you, work across the palm ends (short side) of the fingers in the right order to connect them (so you have a solid line of crochet [top of the hand] with 4 finger 'streamers' hanging below). Then you continue working across the width of the top of the hand as it tells you, to the end of the cuff. (Palm side): same as top side. (there will be some instruction about the thumb front/back that I'm omitting here, the thumb requires more/different shaping 'stuff' that I won't try to guess at, but the pattern should explain) Put the 2 pieces together, probably right sides together so the ugly side of the seam is on the inside, and as invisibly as possible sew 1 long seam from 1 bottom edge of the cuff, up one side of the hand, up and down each of the fingers and the thumb, ending at the opposite end of the cuff. If I were making these, I'd probably try to mitigate the thickness of the seam by using matching sewing thread--you wouldn't want to crochet a bulky seam on gloves. You might want to check out how to sew a 'mattress stitch seam, it is fairly invisible and doesn't add bulk.
  8. Can you explain the following pattern 2sc in first,sc in next,repeat around (what do I repeat), join, chain 1 (9sc) next increase is as follows 2sc in first, sc in next 2, repeat around, join, chain 1 (12) cant figure it out to have correct stitch count thank you annette
  9. Hello and Welcome! Krys
  10. Hello fellow crocheters! Glad to be here! I've visited Crochetville many many times over the years but never thought about signing up until today! I've been crocheting for 40+ years....afghans, home decor, wearables and my all-time favorite dolls!
  11. Good morning. Brenda your flag painting looks wonderful. My days have been a little off since summer break started but I'll get back on track when school starts again. I will be heading home from my daughter's house today. It's been a nice visit and I will miss everyone but I need to be home to take care of my other granddaughter tomorrow. I hope you all have a wonderful day.
  12. good morning the 3 H's again Bgs, that painting is sooooooooo beautiful, I'm not a painter either but enjoy seeing other people's work
  13. The palm and the back of the hand are made seprately, then joined together, then the cuff is made. (Fingers down). This is some of the pattern: Back. First finger. Commence with 87 ch. (work ch loosely). 1st Row: 1 tr into 7th ch from the hook, * ch 2, miss 1 ch, 1 tr into next ch; repeat from * to end of row (41 sps), 5 ch, turn. 2nd Row: Miss 1 sp * 1dc into next tr, ch 3, 2 dbl tr into same place as dc leaving last loop of each dbl tr on hook thread over and draw through all loops at once ( a cluster), miss 2 sps, a 2 dbl tr cluster into nest tr, ch 3 ch 1 dc into same place as cluster, ch 5, miss 2 sps; repeat from * 9 more times 1 dc into 3rd of turning chain, ch 6, turn.

    Hi Granny Square! Alison, please tell us the name of the pattern, because seeing a picture of it would really help. i wonder if we are all reading it wrong, or maybe I should say it's just not clearly punctuated. It could be that you work until you get to the chain space. Then you chain, not into the space but just into the air. Then you do the dc, ch3, dc, all INTO the chain space. Then you make another ch in the air and make a dc into next stitch. They just didn't express it very clearly.

    I wonder if it means 'over' the next chain space, so you'd have a little 2 row 'ladder' going on. So you are 'using' the chain space (sort of) by "filling up" the space it spans, but nothing is touching vertically. That's the only thing that makes sense to me (or my imagination, any way).

    The pattern is a we are knitters pattern. If says *chain 1, skip the next stitch, work 1 dc. Repeat from (to) until you reach the next chain space. Chain 1 inside the next chain space, work 1 dc, chain 3, 1 dc, chain 1 into the chain space. Work 1 dc into the next stitch.*

    Welcome to the 'ville! That is a bit of a stumper. All I can think of is chain 1, do something else in/around the chain space. Can you tell where the spot you are at now, is on the pattern photo? I see Magiccrochetfan has just replied as I'm typing, I was about to ask the same thing.

    To me also that doesn't make sense. What is the name and location of the pattern?

    Hello, I’m a newbie and I don’t know what chain 1 inside the next chain space looks like. Can someone help please. I know how to crochet in a chain space but i don’t understand what chain I inside the next chain space means. Thank you.
  21. What appealed to you about this design, was it the 4 petals which is a little unusual? There are LOTS of motifs with flowers in the middle, here are a couple with a 4 petal center http://loopsandbinds.weebly.com/blog/crochet-garden-flower-square https://www.crochetleaf.com/4-petal-crochet-flower-square.html http://brightbag.blogspot.com/2013/09/2nd-edition-of-my-flower-square.html
  22. Welcome to the 'ville, but not meaning to be 'mean' but that would be against the law (it would be the same as translating a pattern from 1 language to the other, only the author has the right to approve that due to copyright laws). We could help you interpret a detail, but not write out the whole pattern. Also, the stitch diagram does not match the crocheted item shown; the center flower part looks similar but the rest is completely different--which your friend probably realized once she got past the flower.
  23. Since I retired I have taught myself to crochet. I love this granny square. A kind soul wrote out the pattern for the flower, but did not have the time to write the notes for the attached lace background. I have tried to read the graphic pattern. I am too right brained and can not understand it. Is there another kind soul who could write out the rest of the pattern for me? I just need the background granny square. Thank you for your consideration. Yodasister2
  24. How is the glove made? Does the pattern orient you in any way (example, "starting at the cuff, chain x")? I can think of 2 ways that keep the stitches oriented the same way (which this flower pattern would likely be), fingers down (make fingers separately and join where fingers meet the palm) or cuff up, and what you have doesn't look like the finger area to me. It's OK to type out a couple of lines of the pattern, just don't post the whole thing for copyright reasons. Also, It's a good idea to read a pattern all the way thru before starting it, to get your bearings so to speak and make sure there aren't any surprises (probably especially for vintage patterns).

    I do enjoy making for the great grand kids. They are not picky and appreciate everything I send them and with joy too. I looked for the fabric to start making the kids masks and can't find it anywhere. It was all kids theme too. 😲 Guess it was lost in the big move. Maybe I can find some online. Now for the big search. Hope you had a great holiday yesterday.
  26. Ah Mary Jo! Such a nostalgic story. Love the deco's too. Thank you for a great story.
