    Help with Harry Potter Scarves

    I'm not certain, but I think the striping pattern changed from wider stripes to thinner stripes with larger blocks of color at some point. Either for the 3rd or 4th movie. I made mine with even rows of each color and everybody knew what it was supposed to be.

    Thanx, Chrome Kitty. The numbers will me keep track better.

    Thanx, Paulette. That's what I was thinking myself, but wanted to double check.

    pattern question

    I'm working on the magic stripes midi skirt from the 2005 BHG Simply Creative Crochet magazine and I'm not sure about the increasing. Here are the instructions: Inc Row: Ch2 counts as hdc; 2 hdc in next hdc, hdc in ea hdc across, end with 2 hdc in next hdc, hdc in last hdc Work 4 rows even Rep inc row now, then every 4th row 5 times I understand the first part, it's the part in italics I'm not sure about. Does this mean I work even for 3 rows, then increase on the 4th or do I work even for 4 rows then increase on the 5th? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Hotpad question

    Cotton yarn like Sugar N Cream is probably best, but I've also used acrylic without problems.

    Right side vs. wrong side?

    That's usually what I do, too, and yes, the tail is on the left for a rightie. I'll only mark the right side with a stitch marker if row 1 doesn't start the right side.
  9. Usually, you would use a spiral for anything where you don't want a seam, like for a hat or stuffed animals. When you ss at the end of a round to join, you sometimes end up with a noticeable seam.

    herringbone half double crochet ????

    Deneen, here's a link to Barnes and Noble They have a couple copies you can get. The copy I have is the fourth one listed. I think to get all the stitches I have in my book, you'd have to get both Vol 6 & Vol 7.

    herringbone half double crochet ????

    Rebecca, here are directions for the herringbone hdc I found in my Harmony Guide: yo, insert hook, yo, draw through st and first loop on hook, yo, draw through both loops on hook. As near as I can tell, my stitches look the same as in the clutch. I'm wondering if you're adding an extra yo after you draw the loop through the stitch. When I first tried it, I found myself doing that because it's more natural to work the stitch that way.

    Blue Squares Too

    I finished my last square this morning. I think a few of them need blocking, so I'll do that this weekend and hopefully get them mailed out next week.

    Frogged

    It means you've ripped out some or all of the stitches in your project.
