  1. Deb, you are right. I did contact the seller and she sold me the pattern. you are correct in the stitches. thank you everyone for your help.
  2. thanks Becky, but I sure hope it isn't the broomstick! lol I do not like doing that stitch! some how, it looks like a tighter stitch than the lace, though... not sure.
  3. does anyone recognize the stitch in this afghan? I would love to try it, but can't seem to place what it is.. http://www.etsy.com/listing/94670736/bright-bold-rainbow?utm_campaign=Share&utm_medium=PageTools&utm_source=Pinterest thank you for your help!
  4. thanks RoseRed! that's exactly what I did. I went to the CAL and found that one person had indeed made the afghan for a baby and suggested 142 chain as the base. it worked perfect! just what I needed. and for future afghans...the pattern is plus or minus 13 to get the correct pattern details. thank you all so much! I will post a photo after it is complete!
  5. I have the pattern for the sweetheart ripple afghan and have made it a couple of times. This time I would love to make a baby afghan version for my new granddaughter coming in June. Can anyone please help me convert the amount of chain stitches into what I would need for a nice baby blanket size? Is there an approximate general baby blanket size? thanks for your help.
  6. yes, it is increasing by one stitch...so on round 2, you ended with 16 stitches around. for round 3, you will do 1 sc in next stitch, then 2 sc in the next stitch, then 1 sc in next stitch, then 2 sc in next stitch, and so on... that way, you have increased the stitches by another 8 stitches, for a total of 24 on round 3. then on round 4, you will be doing 1 sc in the next 2 stitches, then 2 sc in the next stitch, then 1 sc in the next 2 stitches, then 2 sc in the next stitch and so on...it's a repeated pattern of alternatiing the increase stitches. I hope I have explained it well enough. I made a hat like this once, it comes out with a nice pattern by alternating the increase stitches like that. good luck and best wishes!

    love it!! it looks like hearts..what pattern is this? if you don't mind sharing please.
  8. could you please tell us what you would consider the difficulty rating? or the stitches used in the pattern? I want to buy the pattern, but I am afraid that I will purchase it and not know how to do some of the stitches. Im an intermediate crocheter, and have not learned some of the more complex techniques. thank you!
  9. oh! I love it! it's so neat and professional looking...like it was store bought! I thought the pattern in the book looked lacey or web-like, but seeing your finished afghans shows me that they turn out very nicely. did you use the "H" hook and reg 4 ply yarn?
  10. I have that book, and I must say... I never thought of making that afghan because it just doesn't look as nice as yours does! after seeing yours, I now want to make one also! beautiful work! good job!
  11. so beautiful!!! I have never made a jacobs ladder afghan, but after seeing yours, I think Im going to give it a try! I love the colors you used. this is what I would like for myself..warm and yet classy looking! great job!
  12. Thank you so very much! sometimes when you pick colors, you think, hey..no one but me is going to like this.. LOL I have always preferred fall colors of the browns, greens, orange, etc... so when I found a pattern that needed 7 colors, I knew I could use them all together. I only hoped it would turn out as good as in my imagination. I really appreciate all the kind and wonderful comments. It makes all the work we do on our projects, so worth it when our peers give us the nod. :manyheart:clap
  13. this is so pretty, that is inspired me to do a ripple as my next project. I love your color scheme! great job!
  14. they are all so beautiful!! great job! very nice work!
  15. just fabulous! very well done! <high five>!
