  1. My sister asked me to make a chevron or ripple scarf for my niece for Christmas. She has now called and asked if I can join it so it will be circular. I haven't ever joined a chevron...Can someone give instructions on joining it or give a site where it shows step by step? Thanks....
  2. Thanks for the help! I haven't found the one I saw, but rather than looking more I think I am going to try the 3rd one!
  3. I recently saw a pattern on a site that I thought I bookmarked. It was named Infinity..... It had three separate crocheted strips that were entwined into a shape they called infinity. After they were entwined the 3 strips were put together to make a cowl for the neckline. Has anyone seen one like this? Thanks!
  4. I purchased Snuggly wuggly yarn from Loops and threads at Michael's. Pink "doodle dots". I am crocheting a small ripple for a baby blanket. I have done most of this while my dad was in hospital...do the light was dim. The labels have the same numbers...so i thought they were the same colors...I connected the second skein and have done 7 rows and noticed that that the first skein was lighter and not as many "dots" of darker pink. It was connected at the end of a row, but it does look like 2 different colors of pink. Any suggestions to make it look like it is suppose to?

    70's poncho??

    I was asked a question on another sight. I don't know the answer, but hope I can ask it here to give her some help. Remember the 70s? You know, before the internet ...Remember the 70's? You know, befor the internet. Patterns came from the fabric or yarn store or from the newspaper. I sent though our local newspaper, for a crochet granny square poncho pattern. It was two large squares sewn the the diagional, joined, with a turtle neck and fringe. I made many....many.... It came in adult sizes and children's sizes. I made so many that I no longer needed the pattern. Well, now I do . Does this ring a bell with anyone? I would love to make this again... and again! Thank you one and all, ---------------------
  6. I work at a school. Our art teacher is having a baby in the summer. There are 4 teachers on our hall that can crochet. We wanted to make a blanket from all of us. One will crochet and pass to the next. Just wondering if anyone has done this and wanting suggestions on a pattern that would work. I thought a ripple would be easy...others wanted more ideas. Thanks for your help!
  7. I have a friend who is looking for a ripple pattern. She explains it as one that has ripples made with the shell stitch. Anyone seen or done one like this before? She told me I am always talking about finding what I want, or seeking the help I need on Crochetville....so could I ask this question for her....! Hope someone can help or give ideas! Thanks!

    Do I ?

    Thanks, I decided to do the ch1 through the entire pattern. It is going o.k. Next time I will use the larger hook and see if it works better. Thanks for answering!

    Do I ?

    I am trying the Pattern called Bev's 5 day blankie. I did two rows and thought it was to tight. The Pattern Row 1: Work 3 dc in the 4th ch from the hook. (*Skip 1 chain. Sc in the next ch. Skip 1 chain, then work 3 dc (=1 shell) in the next chain.) Rep from (*) across row, always ending the rows with 1 sc in last stitch. Ch 3, turn. Row 2: 3 dc in lst sc. *1 sc in the center dc of the next shell, make 1 shell of 3 dc in next sc. * Rep the sts between (*) across the row. End with 1 sc. Ch 3, turn. I frogged it and want to try skipping 2 chains. I thought I would chain one in between the 3 dc and 1 sc. So my pattern would be : 3dc, ch1, skip 2 chains, sc in next ch, ch1, skip 2,.....then start over. My question is...if I do this, do I also add a chain like I did on the other rows? I have never varied from a pattern and really need help. Thanks,
  11. I have this pattern, but i don't understand how to read it. I will post it and would love some help. Row 1 (Right side): Ch 3, 4 dc in first sc, * skip next sc, [dc in next sc, skip next sc] 7 times **, [5 dc in next sc] twice; rep from * to last sc, end at **; 5 dc in last sc; turn. My question is..the instructions in the [ ] I understand. I don't understand if I do that 7 times then go to the next [ ] or what. Please explain what I am suppose to do.
  12. Thanks to both of you for your help!
  13. These are the instructions: Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook, and in each ch across. Ch 1, turn. Row 2: Sc in 1st st * Skip 2 sts. In the next st work (dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc) = Shell. Skip 2 sts; sc in next st. Repeat from * across. Ch 3, turn. Row 3: * Ch2, sc in middle ch at top of shell. Ch 2, dc in next sc between shells. Repeat from * across. Ch 1, turn. Row 4: Sc in each st across, including each ch st. Ch1, turn. I have 2 questions. 1. When I get to the end of row 2 it says Ch 3, turn. Then on the next row it says the first thing to do is Ch2. Does that mean I will chain 5 before I sc in the middle chain? 2. Row 4 says to sc across the row. To make it got faster do you think I could dc instead of sc? Your help and opinions please!
  14. What about this one http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/faq-search.cgi?store=/stores/eyarn&faqKey=355 'And,,,could the "Soft and Easy" pattern mentioned in an earlier post be done with just one strand of yarn rather than 3 like the pattern calls for?
