  1. Silly me, I could use either crochet or knitted.
  2. I am tryng to knit a pink & black scarf for my great neice and I need a pattern that is girlish and where the color changes don't look awful. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions of maybe a pattern or a stitch that would be be able to be crocheted into a scarf. Thanks in advance for any help you can give. Pam
  3. You have a good point Frloplady. That did not occur to me but also I was trying to save on yarn, not to waste it. It's just a scarf but even though I am donating it to charity I would like it to look as good as possible. Just because it's being donated I don't want it to look crummy. And I was just adding another skein not a different color but I didn't think about adding it where the color would continue as previously. Thanks to both of you for your suggestions. I do appreciate it. Pam
  4. :hookYou are correct, it's only a little thicker for a couple of stitches and it's not really that noticeable within the context of the whole item. I just thought there might be some type of joins that I didn't know about but someone who's been crocheting longer than I might know. Thanks for the quick response. Have a great day, RoseRed
  5. What is the best way to join 2 skeins of variegated worsted weight yarns to get the most seamless and most unnoticeable join? I tried the russian join but the thread is too thick and is very noticeable. I'm just doing a simple scarf with hdc w/variegated yarn. Thanks for any advice. Have a great day! Pam
  6. I went to the LionBrand site and found the info. I also found so many great FAQs that I've bookmarked the page so I can go back and read them when I have time.
  7. Thanks everyone for the responses. Pam
  8. Is there a simple way to figure out how much yarn is needed for a scarf that is x inches or x number of chains long and is done in single crochet? I am making it much longer than the original pattern (which I can no longer find) so I don't want to get it almost finished and then find out I need enough for 1 more row! I also don't know how wide I will make it so I wondered if there was a way to figure out how much would be needed for 1 row and then I can figure out how many rows I can get. This is some yarn that I just bought many months ago and they have no more in this dyelot. Thanks for any help. Pam
  9. Those squares are beautiful. I have never tried a granny square afghan. It's on my list to do. Pam
  10. Thanks for the info. I'll start on it now.
  11. How many chains should I do for a scarf with the Homespun? Can I make a scarf with just 1 skein if I do as Rosered suggested & do a hdc with an N hook?
  12. well I was using a K but I will take your advice and change to an N. Thanks Pam
  13. I got some great advice on a previous question I had about using Homespun for a purse. My friend is going to get the yarn the pattern calls for and I am making a scarf out of the Homespun. My question now is what is the best way to finish ends with Homespun since it frays so badly? When I added a new ball I crocheted over the two ends for an inch or two. Is that the best way to do it? What about the beginning and ending thread? Should I just use a crochet hook and weave those ends back into the fabric? I am doing the whole scarf in sc. Thanks for any advice. You guys are great. Pam
  14. Thanks everyone for the replies. Finding this website is a great find for me. You guys are great and thanks for the input. I told my friend what you all said and she is going to get the yarn the pattern calls for and I am making her a scarf with the Homespun. Have a great day!
  15. Thanks everyone for the information. I'll let my friend know that we have to choose another yarn for the purse.
