  1. Thank you all for your help. 4mm sounds about right. I tried 3.75 and tested out the gauge, but I felt it came slightly under. 4 came out just right.
  2. Cool thanks. I didn't realize it required such a small hook, but I'll test out the tension just to make sure.

  4. Hi. I have a pattern for a 60s suit modelled by Twiggy herself. I bought the pattern and was really excited. Still am, but I don't quite understand the instructions. From the photo, it looks like it requires a small hook. On the pattern it reads: "Materials: 14 (15:16) 2 oz balls of twilley's stalite no 3 soft cotton or 29 (31:33) 1 oz balls of twilley's crysette no 3 cotton. Nos 14 and 12 wool crochet hooks. Tension: 1 patt. to 1 1/4 ins. in width on no. 14 hook." Really I don't get any of it. Please help.
  5. Thanks for the info. I would really love to make some bright and strong colored garments, but it's really taxing on the eyes to work with some colors. It would be great to crochet in white and then dye afterwards. Am I right in assuming the garment size would not be affected by the dying process?

    Human Nose

    May I ask why you want to crochet a human nose?
  7. I want to crochet a dress in white yarn and after it is all crocheted I want to dye it. Is this possible? Also is it possible to dye acrylic yarn?

    Twiggy suit

    Does anyone know this pattern and where it can be purchased? It’s a white 60s crochet suit and Twiggy is modelling it. I saw it in yesterknits, but I really don’t want to pay $9 for one pattern (shipping included). Please help.
