  1. Granny Square .. I made an entire tree of those angel two different sizes plus a tree topper. I just did those this year. I got hooked on those things. Thanks again for everyone’s help. Merry Christmas!
  2. Krys .. you asked for a picture of the hat when I finished it up. Just want to let you know I posted a picture on show-and-tell. I closed the short side seam with slip stitches. It really worked well & is hard to see. Thanks for everyone's help. Janice
  3. Just finished up this hat today. Slip Stitched the short sides of the hat together instead of using a needle. Found that this way it was barely visible. Had some questions while I was crocheting it. Thanks to the ladies who helped me. You know who you are. Janice
  4. Ladies .. you've all been very helpful. Each helped in a different way. I understand it now. You probably think I'm a newbie to crochet but I'm not (almost 50 years). I've always shied away from sewing seams together .. I hate it. I understood better when you said to close the side seam first & then gather the top where the pom-pom would be. All the pictures were very helpful. Thanks for your patience. Janice
  5. On the yellow side, you weave around the tube perimeter. You don’t weave both edges together as a seam? Hard to picture how this can be pulled together. Thanks for your patience. Janice
  6. So, would you weave along one long edge & pull tightly. Then, go down seam ends sewing them together? This is all done with one long piece of yarn without breaking off?? Thanks! Janice
  7. Okay, I can see if you first close up the short sides, that will make it round. I was just following the directions which said to weave through ends of rows on one long edge & pull together then lastly to seam ends to make hat. Thanks for responding. Janice
  8. Hi .. I've completed the Repeat Row 2. The piece measured 19" and is flat. I don't understand how to close up the top of the hat. The top is currently not in the round. Do I join the two ends together, then work through the ends of the rows, first one side, go around the corner & back through the other side, then pull tight through the row to gather the top? Thanks for any help. Janice

    Virus Afghan

    Thank you, Reni C. I'll just have to sit down & write down the pattern as she's crocheting the afghan. Thank you. Janice

    Virus Afghan

    Thank you, Granny Square. The pattern by Jonna Martinez is the closest to what I'm looking for. I haven't decided if I want to pay $4.50 for the printed pattern. Thanks for your help. Janice

    Virus Afghan

    Hi .. does anyone know of a crochet pattern for a virus afghan? I found a 5 sided pattern but like the looks of 4 corners better. Thanks. Janice
  12. Hi & thanks Granny Square. I printed out the chart. So, in this case it would be a treble crochet since it looks to be a UK pattern. Is that correct? Thanks. Janice
  13. https://pin.it/wcsusam7dt54gt Hi .. would the “t” symbol with the line through the vertical post be a treble crochet? Any help or hints would appreciated. Thanks. Janice

    Childs Hat

    Hi .. thanks for the addn'l help with the t-bag hat pattern. I plan on making that one next. I'm almost finished with the Pretty in Pink hat pattern that Empress Busy Bee suggested. I'll post a picture in a couple of days to show you. The pattern that I was originally looking for has a ribbed design. I know the picture was poor. It was similar to this one: http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/easy-fit-ribbed-pompom-hat The ribs are a bit farther apart on the one I'm looking for & it has the point type ears at the top. Here is a picture of a different pattern I used for my granddaughter. It was fun to make.
