  1. Yep, those are knitted without a doubt. I knit, and have added crochet to knitted item a few times; below is an example where I edged a knit cardigan all the way around - below is a scan of the front opening and bottom edge of the cardigan, you can see the stockinette knit of the body and the crochet linen stitch / woven stitch / other names I'm not remembering for the 1.5" edge. I chose it because I thought it blended in pretty well (and I was lazy, and I knew it would be a bit sturdier than knit). I'm not sure if it wouldn't look odd to add something to what it already a knit ribbed e

  3. I would probably look for one sold as baby yarn. They come in a variety of weights. I like to use acrylic because of the ease in washing/drying something that likely will be used often and get dirty. There are so many brands and yarn choices in each brand. I've used baby yarn from Bernat, Lion Brand and Mary Maxim.

  4. Welcome to the 'ville, and I concur with all of the above. J Just adding that you are going to find that crochet stitch names are wildly inconsistent, I can think of at least 1 other crochet stitch called the 'seed' stitch - I learned it (edit, the stitch you are making) ages ago as the 'up down stitch', and Bgs found a link for the same stitch called lemon peel stitch (that's a new name to me but that's a good description!).

  5. Before committing to a blanket practice making a square maybe 8 × 8 so you get a feel for it.

  6. This couch scarf was on the back of my husband’s aunt’s couch when he was a child. It is not an Afghan. It is a long rectangle. Is it crochet? If so, what stitches? I can’t figure it out. I have looked and looked at it but it isn’t like anything I crochet.

  7. I have 2 of the 16" Baby Dolls and duplicates of the Our Generation and My Life 18" dolls so stuff gets repeated especially with the baby dolls to make sure they have complete "sets" of things. That brings us to today I knew I had to get back to making a second one of these for baby doll 2. Pinky Keen

  8. Patterns are notoriously incorrect. Always read the entire pattern through before starting. That will help you to figure it out. I agree with Moz. Some of the patterns I come across seem odd and perhaps they are translated from another language to English. I find that a lot......Good luck!

  9. Good morning all! I haven't worked in the round before since increases/decreases confused me so much as a beginner. After some YouTube diving and finally understanding, the result was a super simple coaster for my desk 😄 Finally feel ready to tackle round projects.

  11. One of the things I do to keep repeating patterns for multiple dolls interesting is play with the colors. I love fall colors so this seemed like a good time to make a fall themed dress. 16" Baby Doll Dress for Fall

  15. Judy all very pretty but especially love the round ripple. Need to remember how you did the multicolor one for prayer shawls. I tend to have multiple skeins of different colors and not multiples of single colors.

  17. The instructions seem to be counting the slip stitch as a stitch, so Ch 92, slip stitch = 93 Then you Ch 1 (which you don't count), SC in each chain, and then slip stich again at the end = 94. It is an odd way, but so long as they provide a stitch count at the end, it should all work out. ~Moz

  18. That's a Russian or Ukraine style design. Years back there was a really cute purple and greens cardigan in one of the US crochet magazines. I planned on making it, started on it. Life and I forgot. I still have the magazine because the design was so unique, I may still make it. Similar construction. I have seen similar ru designs. Basically a mesh cardigan and then beautiful flower, leaves added and other artistic touches. (were stunning to look at) If you are experienced enough- find a mesh cardigan and crochet appliques to add to it. It'll be your unique style.

  19. Yeah, this is a fussy / fiddly one. I have done a few lace items where you have to make lots of little somethings first and attach them as you go, but I'd rather work on one piece. I suppose it's about the same amount of work (maybe except end weaving), but still....

  21. Welcome to the ville! It is lovely, but it looks like a photo from a clothing catalog. The pattern is undoubtedly proprietary to the manufacturer, and made in a 'factory' which is probably a bunch of people crocheting like mad all day making pennies an hour. I blew up the photo a bit, I'm fairly sure it was not made entirely in an integrated way (row by row, changing colors), I think it is at least partly done Irish Crochet style--where you make the flowers and leaves first, arrange them and then make joining chains between them.

  22. Hi everyone!!! It's been 3 weeks since I've been on! In that time, I made the first 3 parts of the Celestia CAL and decided to just put those pieces together into a baby blanket, which I then gifted without taking a picture of. I also made a small Adipose stuffy (Doctor Who) for a friend and mailed THAT off without a picture. A friend of mine (who is pregnant) told me her sister (that I also know) was pregnant but miscarried right after they found out she was carrying a little girl and picked her name....so I made a baby blanket for a memorial/keepsake.....and I'm currently working on a doubl

  23. This is my third attempt at making a cthulu toy. It turned out better than the first 2 times. The third picture is all three, the light green is the first attempt, the dark green the second, and the purple the third.

  27. Yup- we had a tinsel tree and the color wheel floodlight also. And a few years ago I saw one at Walmart. Go figure. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

  28. The pattern the OP was looking for sort of reminds me of a Norfolk pine. I have seen these (potted plant sized ones) used when I lived in Hawaii, you see big ones growing wild there. Heck, before we moved to Hawaii our tree looked like the one on this link, which isn't exactly realistic. (I thought the color wheel that went with our silver tinsel tree was pretty cool (ooh, ahh) when I was little ).
