  1. Today
  2. Dont feel bad. Granny Square and I have pulled out so many stitches in our lifetimes we could have made afghans to cover a house or two. I mess up and still have to pull projects apart.
  3. These should help. We use this technique when adding a border to afghans. You just need to do it for a few stitches.
  4. Thank you bgs and Granny Square for the advice ... I shall heed it.
  5. You are correct, it is not the answer that I wanted to hear, but deep down I was expecting it. I thought I could do a little cheat to save some time. Thanks for the help!
  6. You're being so helpful I really appreciate it. I hate to ask (I tried google), how does one work into the sides of a stitch? Is it just going through one loop? Sorry if I'm being daft.
  7. Now I see what the chains are for. Red lines are the lateral sides. Green line is row 14. On the lateral sides you are working into the sides of the stitches.
  8. So nice all of it. The woodpeckers make me smile. We had lots of them at old place. One that looked a lot like these used to take sunflower seeds and drop them down channels in the siding and front door. The sunflower candle holder catches my eye.
  9. ahhh sorry i didn’t realize the link wasn’t working! but these are the granny squares i was talking about

  11. Hello from Mississippi!
  12. That is so very pretty. Love the little toadstool in the glass to. That gives me an idea for a Christmas gift.
  13. 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.😁
  14. I can't access that link. The thing with crochet stitch patterns tho, is that pattern names are mostly useless, often one stitch pattern name can describe several completely different stitches, or the same stitch can be called by many different names. There dozens if not hundreds of variations of blanket motifs that include elements of classic granny squares with something else (like a flower in the middle for example), which don't have standard names. If you can post a photo, or link another way, we might recognize it or be able to find something similar. You can put a pdf, jpg
  15. That's really adorable! Super cute! Our son loved dinosaurs when he was a little boy...he would have loved something like this. Saving the pattern. Just in case .... Most of our small christening blanket group were able to meet at the church a couple of days ago...fist time in probably a year! The lady who started the group is so encouraging..and she also passed along a skien of Caron Pounder white yarn as further encouragement...LOL!
  16. Hope you have a great party. Back up to mid 70's today. Odd fall weather. I was really looking forward to autumn before winter weather.
  17. hello! i’m having a hard time trying to find out what these granny squares are called :// does anybody know what these are called https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-Czqa0r9sE98ljPM-ZaDWGJwnqMdoyrDWlD2kxHXyaQ/edit

  19. Repasting with emphasis on the skips and spaces 1st row: (RS). 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook. (Ch 1. Skip next ch. 1 sc in next ch) 9 times. (1 sc in next ch. Ch 1. Skip next ch) 9 times. 1 sc in last ch. Turn. 38 sts. 2ndrow:Ch1.*1sc in next sc. (1 sc in next ch-1 sp. Ch 1. Skip next sc) 8 times. 1 sc in next ch-1 sp. 1 sc in next sc. Rep from * once more. Turn. Your pattern is being very clear and telling you what sort of stitch to skip, it tells you above to skip 1 chain in 2 different spots, and 1 sc in the ch-1 sp in 2 other spots. "Skip the next stitch just means "you see that nex
  20. 1st row: (RS). 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook. (Ch 1. Skip next ch. 1 sc in next ch) 9 times. (1 sc in next ch. Ch 1. Skip next ch) 9 times. 1 sc in last ch. Turn. 38 sts. 2ndrow:Ch1.*1scinnextsc. (1 sc in next ch-1 sp. Ch 1. Skip next sc) 8 times. 1 sc in next ch-1 sp. 1 sc in next sc. Rep from * once more. Turn. my question is the underlined part. Confused about sp (space) and skip. Is it the same?
  21. They are all beautiful but the forest scene is my favorite.
  22. So excited to find this forum. My mother taught me to crochet but after a 40 year hiatus I have started again. My mom has passed away so I can no longer ask for help. Some new patterns have me confused.
