  1. I agree with the other two ladies. Get permission first. Many authors of patterns, especially free ones, do not want the pattern redistributed in any form, they just require a link back to their pattern. Youtube tutorial videos seems to me to be one of those redistributions.
  2. Yeah, it takes us to a vest pattern, what does that have to do with a scarf? Although it is a very pretty and intricate pattern.
  3. Yeah, it looks like hdc between hdc of the row below. I don't see any ch sps between the hdc of the last row.
  4. Pretty! If you make it long enough, it would make a great dress too.
  5. Materials WW yarn such as RHSS. To be safe, 2 skeins, 6oz Crochet hook size 7mm (this is between a K and L, so either of those would work too) yarn needle Gauge: Unimportant Difficulty: Medium Size: One Instructions Note: ch 1 at beg of rows does not count as a st Ch 71, hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Rows 2-30: Ch 1, turn. Working in the horizontal yarn below top of hdc, hdc in each hdc across. Note: the last hdc can be difficult to see. Count your sts periodically to make sure you always have the same number. After Row 30
  6. Yeah, getting internal service error when I click the pattern link. Will go and try to locate it myself. Love them. I construct slippers similarly, but the post stitches look like they make a nice, thick slipper.
  7. Just finished this yesterday. Obviously I ran out of purple on the last row of scarf, but I like it anyway. If anyone wants the pattern I will publish it and eventually get it on my Ravelry, where all my patterns are free. It's pretty simple, up until the scarf construction, but even that isn't too difficult. I just used stash yarn to do it with. The pink came from an old afghan I pulled apart and it had some stains in it. But some oxy powder took care of that. A turn in the washing machine/dryer, and it looks great. Okay, I put the pattern in Original patterns. I hope they're clear. http
  8. That's really nice. I may give it a try when I get some WIPs out of the way
  9. Thanks everyone. Sorry I haven't gotten back before now, got kind of busy. I seem to have her knack for looking at things and figuring them out, or getting pretty darn close. I'm attempting to recreate the large hexagon motif used in the afghan on the Wayne's World couch. I think I'm really close. Close enough that I'm going to try making an afghan with it. If anyone wants to know what I'm talking about, here's a link to an image of it. https://crackinfilms.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/its-waynes-world_517x290.jpg See the afghan behind Garth? I love it and I want. I know I can't
  10. Great use for old t-shirts. I make something almost exactly like it, only using two strands of WW yarn held together. I called it a Skillet Grabber. Nice work
  11. After my mother passed away a couple of years ago, I got a few things that she had crocheted, including an afghan, scarf, hat and a hotpad. I really liked the hotpad, and it was looking well-used, so I finally sat down this morning and studied it, and then recreated it. I wrote down how I did it, but since I'm not sure if she got it from a book or what I can't publish it anywhere, so I just thought I'd show it off On the right is the original one that I brought home and on the left is the one I did. Now, the other side of hers is solid white, but I made both of my motifs exactly the s
  12. Oh, you're welcome I like helping, and I know a lot of people who have trouble with the simple ripple. That's why I decided to suss it out and write it out.
  13. If you have long hair, like I do, and wind it into a bun on occasion, then this is the accessory for you. It uses a small amount of yarn and works up very easily and quickly. It's also my very first Ravelry store addition, I hope to add more in the future. This one is free, I can't always guarantee that though. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bun-cap
  14. How interesting If I put everything I like on my to-do list...it would be long enough to wrap around the earth.....several times
  15. Very pretty! I love either keyhole scarves or moebius scarves and cowls because they don't slip off your neck/shoulders. This does look very easy, but very pretty at the same time and is something different from basic, endlessly boring, single-stitch scarves (which are good practice pieces for raw beginners nonetheless)
