    since about 1960's, but really got into it late 1970's and prefer Susan Bates hooks
  1. I got on Annie's site and there was a section about 'infringement /copyright'. So I sent them URL for the Esty shop and explained that I recognized the pictures as I have them in the publications that I have at home as I used to subscribe to them. So, it's in their hands now. I've seen the actual books for sale, but not individual ones as PDF.
  2. I 'booked marked' that site.... she is selling them as PDF Download. I have these books which is why I recognized the pictures. AND if she's selling as PDF Download, then it is illegal, right???
  3. So I was searching for afghan ideas for a 7-8 year old boy. On an Esty Shop, came across pattern pages for sale from Annie's Crochet/Pattern Books that date back to the late 1970's at $3.00 each. Isn't this illegal??
  4. Thank you!! I will try and figure it out and get back to you,....in a PM.
  5. using knit pro. The xl graph I did is 158 w by 68 h.
  6. what shows in the graph - will that be the exact stitches across and rows to come out for a size wanted?? Like I would like to make an afghan about 46" x 64" using a team logo, but I'm not sure how to figure stitches and rows needed.

  8. This is SO COOL!!! I've been trying to figure out how to make something and this was a HUGE help! Thanks for posting the link!!!
  9. YEP! I frogged a couple of inches and then measured including the ribbing. Much better.

    poncho length

    I'm making the little-pebbles crochet poncho.....starting at the bottom, after making the ribbing and working on the body, "Rep last row for pat until total length measures x amount of inches. Am I including the ribbing in the length or not??? Turn work sideways and proceed as follows: 1st row: (RS). Ch 1. Work 46 (50-54) sc evenly across side of ribbing. Turn. 2nd row: Ch 1. *1 sc in next sc. 1 dc in next sc. Rep from * to end of row. Turn. 3rd row: Ch 1. *1 sc in next dc. 1 dc in next sc. Rep from * to end of row. Turn. Rep last row for pat until total length measures 14 (17-19)" [35.5 (43-48) cm], ending on a WS row.*** Thanks in advance
  11. Thank you!!! This video makes sense and I can understand it. in the learn to book, I think It's the way the directions were written: for row 2; Ch 1* insert hook from bottom to top under front lp of beg.ch (this was the back bump of beg ch that was not used in row 1; it became the front lp when you turned your work), insert hook from bottom to top under front lp of sc of row 1 directly above ch, yo, draw through 2 lps, yo and draw through 2 lps on hook; repeat across, turn. THEN: row 3 ch 1, *insert hook from bottom to top under front lp of sc in row 1 (two rows previous, the front lops form a horizontal line across the bottom of the piece), insert hook from bottom to top under front lp of sc in row 2 (previous row), (yo, draw through 2 front lps, yo and draw through 2 lps on hook; rep from * across, turn.

    Waffle Weave

    https://www.e-patternscentral.com/detail.html?prod_id=4460&cat_id=506&classification_id=B I ordered the download - but now I'm am *so* confused the way the basic directions are written for this in SC...I can't get it figured out. Does anyone know if there is a video tutorial on this. I find the DC/front post one.
  13. https://www.anniescatalog.com/detail.html?prod_id=129303 This is where I got the idea for an afghan pattern only make it wider. I got this pattern and made this, it's a two row repeat. I can't relocate the video with Ellen Gromley on how to do it, but it's really easy.
  14. I was thinking of Fishbone and maybe Basketweave or Seed stitches using regular worsted weight yarn possibly and H hook. Then I did think about making a panel of each starting with 1 skein each and going from there. So I guess i'm on the right track. Thanks Friends!
  15. I am thinking of making an afghan in panels - using two different stitches. How can I figure out how much yarn is needed for an average size afghan??
