  1. Thanks all!!! I think I have enough info and links to deal with the pattern. Plus some extras!
  2. I ran across a crochet technique that I really would like to try but there is no written pattern or chart and I have a hard time dealing with video tutorial and it's not in English. I think it is Turkish and it looks like it is called Rhombus. Has anyone done this one before? It's on this page, about 5 down I think. http://yarnandhooks.com/index.php/2020/06/06/9-crochet-stitch-patterns-for-beginners/ and it looks like this.
  3. I had actually gotten my graph paper out already. The design is on "graph pixels" right now. :) Thanks.
  4. I am trying to create a blanket for my husband for our anniversary. I have a design drawn out and have tried to run it through several different programs but I can't seem to get anything workable. It's a labyrinth but my husband is 6', maybe 6'1", and since I want a useable blanket, I've done a very simple design with nothing but straight lines. I thought that would be a fairly easy thing to chart but I guess I have the ratio off and I can't find anything that will make anything workable. Is there anyone who can help guide me on how to get the ratio right so I can make this surprise? Or point
  5. Yes, I should have mentioned that I looked there. Unfortunately, the two colors I need aren't in stock. And from what the employee said, they might not get restocked. But I'll be watching!
  6. I'm not a huge fan or multi-color yarns that have abrupt color changes but I liked the way Caron's Latte Cakes looked so picked up a few cakes. I have since decided that I really like it! Now, what happens a lot of times is I find something that I really like and it then disappears! I know it's a Michaels exclusive. The first time I got it there was a huge center aisle display and I bought some again last week. Since the "buy 2 get 1 free" sale was still on I went back yesterday for more. There was none. Some of the cake style yarns were in a bin they told me was clearance but none were the La
  7. Thanks!!!! I don't know why I was being shown only one page. It's showing both now.
  8. This is a free pattern on Ravelry but the link takes me to a file on the WayBack Machine and it only seems to go through round 5. Does anyone know where I can find the complete pattern or does anyone know of a similar one? Doesn't have to be a free pattern if it is a unique design. I do want something pretty solid though, not a lot of holes. And rounded points.
  9. Thanks, Reni. I've got some of Donna's patterns. I was looking for something fairly solid and I love the gentle curves instead of actual points. I can probably adapt that though. I will check them out. As for where this ended up... I have no clue how that happened! LOL... Will repost. Thanks1
