    Looking for a thin twisted cord

    No, that's not the one. See my comments above.

    Looking for a thin twisted cord

    I don't know. That's why I'm asking

    Looking for a thin twisted cord

    Neither the Lobster cord or the Romanian cord have a twist. The one I'm looking for has kind if a line of stitches on top of the base that spirals along the cord. Oohh it's hard to explain this 🤣
  4. Hi. I've seen a tutorial somewhere on a twisted, very thin, twisted I-cord. It wasn't made the usual way,and it was like a twisted row of stitches on the surface of the cord. Does anyone understand what I mean?

    Crocodile stitch pattern help

    When I think it look weird I just do as they say. It will probably explain itself on the following rows.

    Thanks. I found one of them is for crochet, and I'll have a look at that one.

    Crochet software

    Thanks. Yes I have but it doesn't allow me to go outside the box with stitches.

    Crochet software

    Hi, All the posts about charting software are pretty old, and some of the links are invalid. I'm looking for a charting software. Also, I'm looking for a really good ttf file for the crochet signs. I've tried some free software, but they don't allow you to digress from the common ways to do things. I want to go wild, but not having to photoshop crochet signs.

    Blocking large items

    I would dampen a towel, lay it over the piece, and then turn it into a big roll

    Crochet Brioche Hat

    It's a very instructive pattern. Just read and do exactly as instructed. The turning has to be learned, but once that's done everything else seems fairly straight forward.

    Pattern Confusion

    I always rewrite patterns like this before I start. Like this: Ch 4, join with slip st to form ring. Rnd1 Ch3, 4 dc in ring, (ch3 ,5dc in ring) 3 times, This I sometimes write out three times instead: ch3 ,5dc in ring, ch3 ,5dc in ring, ch3 ,5dc in ring ch 3, join with slip st to top of beg ch-3. Rnd 2 Ch 2, (yo, insert hook in next dc, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through 2 loops) 4 times, yo and pull through all 5 loops on hook (dec made) this is a decrease. 4 stitches together and it seems to be 4 dc together as far as I can see. Just follow through and you'll get it right) , ch 4, slip st in next ch-3 space, ch 4, *(yo, insert hook in next dc, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through 2 loops) 5 times, yo and pull through all 6 loops on hook (dec made), This is 5 dc together ch 4, slip st in next ch3-space Which I always rename as chainloop, ch 4. Repeat from * twice more; You can recolour the * to * part, or rewrite it to make sure you repeat the exact right stitches join with slip st to top of first decrease Or as I call it "dc's together" Fasten off. Rnd 3 Working over slip st of Rnd 2, join next color yarn with slip st in any ch-3 space of Rnd 1 . Ch 3, (2 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) in same space, slip st in top of next dc dec or together, *working over slip st of Rnd 2, work (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) in next ch-3 space or chain loop of Rnd 1 , slip st in top of next dc dec. Repeat from * twice more; ' join with slip st to top of beg ch-3. Fasten off. " Did that make it any easier or did I confuse you even more ?

    Help Needed to Decifer Meaning

    In patterns with different sizes I usually rewrite the pattern with only the directions I need for the size I'm making. That minimizes the risk for making errors in number of stitches.
  14. I usually rewrite patterns like this. Ch-5sp (or whatever number) i write as "chainloop" and I write a new row for every task. That makes it much easier to follow.
