  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.

    I found the perfect crochet scarf!

    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.

    Forgotten stitch

    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.

    cold shoulder

    Pretty! If you make it long enough, it would make a great dress too.

    Ribby Scoodie

    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, slst top of hoodie tog, using the inside lps of top of hdc. End off. Scarf Leaving a generous tail, ch 71. Like hoodie, hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. With right side of hoodie facing, hdc in each free lp of beg ch of hoodie. When you reach end of hoodie, YO and insert hook in last lp again and pull up a lp, YO and pull through one lp, YO and pull through all 3 lps. *YO and insert hook into middle of bottom of st and pull up a lp, YO and pull through one lp, YO and pull through 3 lps. Rep from * until you have 70 hdc. Now use yarn needle and tail of yarn to fasten first part of scarf to edge of hoodie before concealing it. Continue on as you did for hoodie until scarf is as wide as you like. Do not end off Sc around entire edge, making 3 sc in each corner. Join with a slst to first sc Ch 4 and dc in same sp, *sk 2 sc, dc, ch 1, dc in next sc. Rep from * around, join with a slst to 3rd ch of beg ch-3. Make dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc in each corner. Note: I don't give a gauge because you can vary the size by using more or fewer chs in your beg chs and you can make more or fewer rows in your hoodie. It's all good as there's no stitch count. Also, I stashbusted on this one, so I'm not sure how much yarn I actually used. With the edging I think the scarf is about 5-1/2 to 6 inches wide. But you can make it as wide or as thin as you like.
  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.

    Ribby Scoodie

    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. https://forum.crochetville.com/topic/160034-ribby-scoodie/ https://www.ravelry.com/people/EChatty
  8. I love this pattern. I've made several since I discovered it years ago and have a sunny yellow one on the hook that I really need to finish. My favorite one has to be the one I made from leftovers that I still add to once in awhile.

    Fisherman Cable Hoodie Scarf

    That's really nice. I may give it a try when I get some WIPs out of the way

    Shells Hotpad

    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 recreate it exactly, but I can recreate it in colors I have around the house.

    Cast Iron Skillet Handle Cover

    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

    Shells Hotpad

    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 same. I think I'll make some more, it's a really good stashbusting project.
  13. 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.

    Bun Cap

    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
