  1. Welcome, New Members! We're glad you've chosen to join the Crochetville family and community. We're a pretty friendly, supportive, and helpful bunch around here. We'd love to hear stories and see photos of your crochet projects. Since we've moved Crochetville off our own server into Invisiion's Community in the Cloud, we seem to be getting more registrations than usual. Would you like to share with us how you found Crochetville?
  2. Crochetville would like to give a special thanks to Dot Matthews for generously allowing us to host her patterns here and give them a special permanent home on the internet. This thread will be a directory of all Dot's patterns here at Crochetville, arranged by type. We are slowly getting all her patterns added, so please be patient with us as this list grows. (Only 7 more patterns to add!!)

  3. I thought Crafty_Boy_13's question about how many are right-handed vs. left-handed was interesting. A poll will make it much easier to keep up with the results, so here we go!
  4. My newest design! I'm in the process of writing the pattern right now. It will come in 3 sizes: XS/S, M/L, and XL+. The yarn is Lion Brand Heartland.
  5. Clarification about the website linked above: The owner of the site does make mention on her site that the original patterns are public domain. Since she has made this claim, I am going to assume she has done her homework and has verified that. Should a copyright holder come to me with information that some of the patterns are indeed still under copyright, I'll at that point remove the link to this site.

    Is this pattern right?

    I have had to remove the screenshots of images from the blog as well as the link to the blog in question, as it does appear to be one of those questionable blogs that posts copyrighted photos and pattern charts without permission from the copyright holders. (At the very least, I was unable to find any claims they made that they had permission to do so.) We are very happy to provide assistance with patterns, but we must do so while respecting copyright law. That means please only post photos that you have taken yourself. Don't upload photos or screenshots from other sites. Provide us with a link to the page or pattern in question. If it's on a legitimate site, there's no problem. Unfortunately, if it's on something posted on a site like the one in question, we may not be able to allow the link. And don't worry: Most sites are legitimate.

    Aunt dots double cross afghan pattern

    Since the original poster's question has been answered, I am going to close this thread. If anyone wants additional information on why we do not allow links to patterns in the Wayback Machine, you can consult our Terms of Use for more information. You're also welcome to send us a message, and we'll talk with you privately about our site policies.

    Hello I am Lydia

    Lydia, welcome to Crochetville! I'm sorry for the late response, but I need to address your comment about sharing patterns. We encourage all our members to share links to patterns or information to where they were published. However, we cannot allow sharing of copies of patterns, as that would be copyright infringement, which is both against the law and a violation of our forum policies. Hopefully, you meant that you like to share information about patterns, and your wording just wasn't quite clear. i hope you have fun looking through all the information on our site.

    As Kathy stated, sites like this genially do not have permission from copyright holders to distribute all of those patterns. I have edited the original post to remove the links to the site in question.

    interpreting graphic pattern

    I have had to remove the symbol chart of the pattern included in the original final post to check mplynwith our forum copyright policies. These policies state members can only post patterns or pattern charts if they are the copyright owner (generally the designer or publisher). These policies help keep our site and members clear of any legal issues related to copyright infringement.

    Harley Davidson logo blanket

    I am going to close this thread, since we keep getting requests for the pattern (many of which I gave already deleted), despite all the information several of us have shared about why we can't help with a pattern source.
  12. What are some of the fun crochet phrases you've heard or used? Can you think of any? Let's start a list: Hooked on Ewe Hooked on Fiber (or string or yarn or whatever)
  13. The patterns should all still be here in the forum. These links just no longer redirect. I will need to take the time to search the forum and find the current correct links for them all. Unfortunately, I'm not sure when I will be able to do that. Crochetville is moving in to studio space this week, then I have a big local event next Saturday, and our grand opening the Saturday after that. If any forum members have time to search out good links, if you could post them in the other thread I would be most appreciative. I'll update the first post as soon as I possibly can.

    Help finding a old post

    If you click on the magnifying glass next to the search bar at the top of a forum page, it will bring up the advanced search option. You can enter all sorts of search parameters to help you narrow down your search.

    Profile question

    We used to have one option for showing who was online and a separate option for displaying what they were doing. We had it set to show who was online, but keep everyone's activity private. This is no longer possible. We can either show who is online and what they're doing on the forum OR show none of it. We also believe in respecting each member's privacy, so for now, I've changed that setting to turn it all off. At some point, we may be able to find a plugin that will let us display who is currently logged in. If not, that information isn't really vitally important, although it is nice for admins to know. We will continue to show what areas Guests are viewing, since nobody can tell who is which guest.That's still anonymous.
  18. I just had an inkling to create a new set of clothes for my American Girl doll, Samantha!

    menu bar glitch

    Donna and I both have iPhones, so we tried to duplicate what you're seeing. When we click that menu bar icon, all the options appear on the right side of the phone screen. If you click an option to go down to a deeper level, everything shifts over and stays on the right-hand edge of the phone, with no need for scrolling to see anything. We did this with both the regular iPhone Safari browser and Chrome. This may be a function of Android-based phone software, we aren't sure. However, we would prefer that the ads not be cut off and causing issues for anyone on a mobile phone. We will need to spend some time researching how to show one size ad for computers and a different, smaller ad for mobile devices that will fit completely within the display screen. We'll see what we can do!

    Pattern instructions

    The "Report Post" link is grayed out, but if you click within a specific post to select it, the link will turn blue. At least, that's what happens on my iPad.

    Sharon, I've moved her topic to the correct area, so I'm going to merge this thread into the original one. It's better if we move topics that are in the wrong place to the correct place. If anyone ever notices something in the wrong place, just use the report button and let us know about the problem. We'll Mbe happy to move a discussion topic to the right location.

    Can you let me know which phone and browser you're using?

    2017 Stashbusting CAL

    Ellie, due to a server software upgrade, we were forced into a forum software upgrade without advance notice to n which to prepare ourselves and forum members. The forum upgrade would have happened to summer regardless, because the old version was no longer going to be supported and would be vulnerable to threats. With advance notice, we could have made the transition easier. Now Donna and I have to learn new things right along with the rest of you. It's definitely a team effort! Anywat, the emoticons are right there in the new post toolbar as always (maybe in a slightly different location), at least when I use my laptop and iPad. If you're by any chance using a different sort of mobile device and can't see them, can you please let us know which device and app you're using to access the forum? We'll see what we can do to help.

    Best yarn for bedspread

    Abbyroselou, as Sharon mentioned, our site focuses on issues related to crochet. We have some members from Australia, but they may not end up seeing this post. You'll probably get more useful advice by asking your question in a forum that is based in Australia so people will be more familiar with the business you're asking about. A forum with a broader focus, such as shopping in general or just home goods, might also be a better bet than one focused on a particular craft like crocheting. Do you crochet? If so, we'd love to have you join in our crochet discussions.
