    One skein

    Throughout the year, when I have a skein, I make hats. I have 3 styles that I do that take a couple of hours to make. If I have more than a single skein of a color, I make mittens to go with the hat. A local charity in my community collects hats, gloves and scarves. The first week of Dec. they distribute what they have to the local schools. The teachers can see to it that children who are in need get items at the school parties, without the children being made to feel so needy. This past Christmas I was able to donate 100 hats and 38 sets of mittens. There's always a group somewhere who are more than happy to accept donations.

    Looking For A Nutcracker

    I've googled. I've checked CPC. I would like to crochet a nutcracker for a friend who collects them. He has quite a few. They are made of wood or ceramic or whatever. Certainly nothing made by hand or from yarn. Any ideas of where to search would be appreciated.

    Magic Scarf

    Have you ever seen or heard of the Magic Scarf? www.magicscarf.com/stores...a7fddbac0c It seems to be a tube that can be stretched to five times the width. Are there instructions anywhere to make one of these scarfs?

    Hexagon Sweater

    I'm finishing up this sweater: http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/hexagon-jacket.html It is so quick and easy to make. It struck me that it strongly resembles the baby surprise jacket. Only difference is, this is done in two pieces. I was wondering if anyone knows if there is an adult version of this crochet hexagon jacket. I've googled without any luck. I think this would be a great adult project and could be a good use for stash.

    Who's The Author>

    This getting older sure is for the birds. I thought I was looking for books by Joyce Chen at the library. But that's only if I want cookboods. Who is it that has the top down patterns? Please help before I lose what little is left of my mind.

    Aggie May simple round ripple pattern

    I see she's already on the job. Aggie May's a real peach!
  15. The pattern that sherry posted, from Garn Studio, seems to be just what you're looking for. Adding the cap sleeve would be a snap.

    I love this shawl pattern! ~~ Amber waves of grain

    Here's an exact replica of feather and fan, done in crochet. It's a little hard to see because there doesn't seem to be a zoom for the picture. The pattern repeat is quite easy. Depending on the yarn and hook you use, a beginning chain of about 100 would probably be wide enough for a shawl. Then just work it until it's long enough to suit you. http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=4080&cps=21191

    Was Someone Looking for a Fan Pattern Afghan?

    Maggie Weldon sells just the pattern. It's in PDF format. However, just for the one pattern, it is $7.99. I just won't spend $8 for a single pattern. I'd sooner do without than to spend that much on a pattern.

    Looking for Pineapple Border pattern or formula ?

    Go to Freepatterns.com and do a search for Vintage Lace Afghan I. If you are not familiar with free patterns, you have to register, but it is free to do that. The vintage lace afghan has a pineapple border on it. The afghan, itself, is nothing special, but the border makes it.
  20. This one is my favorite. I'm working on my second one as we speak. It uses an N hook. Not Q. But I don't think you'll be sorry. http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?p=818270#post818270

    Simply Knitting Magazine

    Can anyone tell me where I might buy a hard copy of the Dec. issue with Alan Dart's Knutcracker pattern? All I can seem to find online are downloads. I live in a rural area and only have access to dial-up. Downloading a full magazine would probably take the rest of my natural life. I'd have loved to have this pattern for Christmas, but it will certainly be welcomed as a birthday gift for a special collector friend for an Aug. birthday. Any help would be appreciated.

    Simply Knitting Magazine

    I'm 50 miles from the nearest bookstores, craft stores. As for the simply knitting website, they do not mail single copies outside of Europe and the UK. Single copies can only be downloaded in the US. My niece has offered to check for me. She lives in a more populated area. Unfortunately, she's in the path of the blizzard headed for the NorthEast this week-end. If it's meant to be, it'll work itself out.

    Simply Knitting Magazine

    When I go to those sites, they say no search meets criteria. Either they are sold out, or they don't have the magazine. When I first checked B & N, they did offer a download, but I'm really looking for a hard copy. Just downloading updates for my computer takes 4 hours. I'd hate to think what a 100 page magazine would take. But now they aren't even offerring the download.

    Eeyore or Disney crochet patterns

    FetchBook.com is a favorite resourch of mine. I put Disney Crochet in the Title search. Back comes a page and the first book has eeyore and disney critters. FetchBook tells you where you can get what you're looking for and lists them from least expensive to most expensive. http://www.fetchbook.info/search.do;jsessionid=E9716DF64103F33CB86CA0A97F451D64?search=disney+crochet&searchBy=Title&Submit=Search Give it a look.

    French granny square

    That's just a square. Work corner to corner. Start with 1 sc and every row increase one at each end. When it's as wide as you'd like start decreasing one at each end until you get down to one. Work in the back of the stitch only. Pick an edge stitch you like for the outside. Place them down with the angles going in opposite directions. Seems simple enough.
