  1. I don't really crochet much anymore and I don't own crochetkim anymore. If you will visit crochetkim.com, I did an article years ago to help with this pattern. Just put sweetheart ripple in the search box. I sold my site and I have a recipe food blog now. I didn't even know crochetville was still online.
  2. Once you've completed the row on top of the prior row, the cord can come out of the prior row. It's just there to hold the stitches temporarily until you get the next row on there.
  3. The last heart you did looks like it has a little bit extra on the left. You would need to take out 4 of the post stitches there and re-work them like you've done for the first 2 hearts. It's just a little smidge over where you have it now.
  4. Because the knook stitches are picked up very similarly as Tunisian crochet stitches, initially they appear to be the same. But, knooking is literally knitting. True, literal, actual knitting.... with a crochet hook. Tunisian crochet isn't knitting. Although there are loops all across the hook at the beginning, you then close the loops at the end of the row. Tunisian crochet isn't knitting because there is a closing chain running through the top of each row. It is the only true difference between knitting and Tunisian. Tunisian crochet stitches are closed after each row. Knitting sti
  5. I'm sure it will work out, but just in case... I wanted to let you know that I'm going to be with limited internet access from Tuesday through Saturday. I may not have it at all. I'm unsure right now. So, if you write, and I don't respond immediately, you'll know why.
  6. I think you are spot on. Hard to see to the side like that. But, I'm pretty sure it's exactly correct.
  7. This is not uncommon. You aren't following the diagonal of the ripple. The stitches are straight down, at the diagonal angle. There will be three skipped stitches where I have circled in this photo. Right now, you have no skipped stitches there. You'll need to move them over. http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa67/crochetkim/3skippedsts.jpg
  8. If you're having trouble with placement, there is a really nice photo I posted showing which stitches to skip earlier in this topic. Hope it helps!
  9. This is the correct number of starting chains. If you are lacking stitches, it could be because, when you put multiple stitches into a chain, it squeezes the chain together and you miss the next chain, not realizing that it's there. That's the usual culprit.
  10. Linda, I'm sorry I didn't see your message sooner. But, if you are still having problems, you may be able to get all your answers in the video tutorial I did for the stitch: http://kimguzman.wordpress.com/2009/06/24/crochet-along-sweetheart-ripple-afghan/
  11. Heather, I'm sure you'll start seeing people making it soon. It would make a lovely gift for the winter holidays.
  12. I definitely agree! The placement of the stitch is certainly causing a bit of a problem and I'm hopeful that all my prior tips/instructions have been helpful. I'm walking a thin line between being helpful and giving away the pattern. As much as I love to help with a crochet-along, I have to be careful that I'm not giving away too much since I wouldn't want to get into trouble with the publisher. I have to try to be as careful as possible in helping. Fortunately, the instructions don't indicate that you make the stitch in any kind of an angle. It is straight down into one of the stitch
  13. Well, I'm not sure how much help it will be since we are by no means professional videographers. But, for those of you wanting a video of the modified front post treble that I used for this afghan, here you go: http://s197.photobucket.com/albums/aa67/crochetkim/?action=view&current=DSCF0255.flv
