  1. I'm using sort of a memorized pattern I guess you'd say. 12 dc's on the 1st round, then 24, then 36, etc. I'm using a lightweight yarn, so I got up to 84 stitches before it was about 6.5" across and time to start working down the sides.
  2. My basic beanie is flat on top as it should be, and when I stop the increases to start working down the side, if I lay it flat, it's puckered. My stitch count is correct. I've crocheted for many years and I've seen this before but haven't made hats for awhile so I haven't had this problem for a long time. As I work more down the side, the hat has sort of a boxy look, kinda square-ish on top since the top was made in a flat circle. Does someone have another good method?
  3. Thanks for your replies! This gives me an excuse to go to Hobby Lobby and pick up a new crochet hook...with a 40% off coupon!
  4. Oh wow...maybe I crochet too tight!
  5. K makes it tight, but M is hard for me to work with. Is there such a size as an L? I want it soft, not stiff. I'm making hats.
  6. Sorry if I'm a little behind. I don't get to get on here much anymore. Have any of you tried adapting this to a tree skirt? I would love to know how to do so.
  7. I just wanted to say THANKS for sharing this pattern. I'm going to make it for my daughter for Christmas!
  8. Addey, that's how I felt when I was working on mine...I didn't want to put it down. I'm tempted to do another one and do it in dc's like you guys are doing. (I had started my last one in sc's after seeing the picture but before RoseRed posted her pattern.) I'm sure the dc version goes a lot faster.
  9. Hot off the hook...and weighing in at a whopping 8 pounds...here's my finished afghan!! RoseRed, to answer your question, I prefer the smaller border. I ended up doing 3 rnds of sc & 1 rnd of rev sc.
  10. I'm sewing on my last 2 strips this afternoon. My afghan is 6 blocks by 6 blocks and it's BIG and WARM and we just LOVE it!! For the border, a friend of mine suggested just doing a couple rounds of sc's and then a round of rev sc. I think that will look nice, and I'm planning on starting it in a little while. I'll post a picture when it's all done.
  11. Question for you guys that have finished your afghans: How much yarn do you think it takes for the border? I'll be sewing my last 2 strips on today & starting the border, but I've gotta go buy the yarn for it. 1 or 2 skeins?? Thanks!
