    I learned how to crochet as a child and then started crocheting on and off when my children were you
  1. Very pretty, love the colors!
  2. This was going to be an afghan but on one of the rows I had to go into slip stitches and they were tight and got frustrated so I decided to turn it into a scarf. I continued along the other side and put an edging on it.
  3. The flower is detachable. Can wear scarf without flower or slide flower up closer to neck
  4. My own scarf pattern using sock yarn.
  5. Thanks, I sent a message to Lisa Gentry on Ravelry.
  6. I found it on in my documents. Somehow I have a digital of the holiday magazine. I don't remember buying it. I haven't bought patterns in awhile. On soc. sec. now and really can't afford to buy too much. I just feel stuck and ready to pull it apart.
  7. How would I do that. I printed out the pattern. Now I can't find where I got it from. I know it was free when I printed it. Here are links but they are not free. http://www.loveofknitting.com/articles/Festive_Fuchsia_Cardi Now it only shows the magazine. It is also listed in raverly. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/festive-fuchsia-cardi
  8. I need some help with this pattern. I started to make this cardi and there seems to be an error, I think. I am making the large size. on the last row of increases for the yoke, I needed to inc. 27 sts evenly and I should have 268 sts which I did. The next row which is row 15. . It saids Ch 3 ( counts as first dc here and throughout) dc in next sc *skip 2 sc, shell in next sc (which is 5 dc in same st), skip 2 sc, V-st ( which id dc, ch1, dc) in next sc, rep from * across. The pattern saids I should have 38 shells. I have 44. Can someone tell me if it is an error? Has someone tried this pattern. It is from Love of crochet/Holiday 2012.
  9. Thank you. I will continue on. I'll give a shout if I need more help.
  10. I need help with the Chevron Sweater pattern from Red Heart. I am working on the body. Here is what it says. Beginning at waist with color A, ch 99. Row 1 (right side) sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, turn. Row 2. Ch 3 (counts as dc here and throughout), dc in each st across, change to color b, turn. Row 3. Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. Row 4. repeat row 2, change to A color in last st. Row 5. Repeat row 3. Row 6 repeat row 2, change to color b in last st. Continue to change color every other row throughout. Right front and sleeve. Row 1 (right side) ch 1, sc in first 26 sts, turn leave remaining sts unworked for back and front. Row 2 Ch 30 loosely (for sleeve), dc in 4th ch from hook (beginning ch counts as dc) and in each remaining ch across, dc in each sc across, turn. My ch 30 should be at the end according to diagram on pattern but it is in the middle. Frustrated, and can't stand the yarn that it calls for. This is a free pattern from Red Heart website called Chevron Jacket. I just want to throw everything in a bag and throw in the closet but I can't. My sister bought the yarn for me to make this sweater for her.
  11. I recently started making my own creations. I've been creating outfits for a little girl's size 4. Mostly for my great grandaughter. I was asked about my patterns. I've read the copyright law and once it is written down which I have a cropped jacket done with pictures, that the pattern is copyrighted. But it is like so many sweater patterns that could be part of someone else's like the top down sweaters. I did my own measurements and checked gauges to determine how many stitches and then determine how many certain pattern stitches would be in a row and spent alot of time trying to figure how I wanted sleeves etc. Do I just keep these patterns, offer to sell them or offer some as free. I've read some of the threads and I wonder if it worth the aggravation that some designers go through. Am I wasting my time typing them up so people can follow them along with pictures?
