  1. Looking for a pattern for a sweater for my soon to be four year old granddaughter. Looking for a worsted weight cardigan with a high waist and decorative bottom. Long sleeved. If anyone knows of a pattern, I am looking at a size for a five or six year old as size so it will fir her awhile.
  2. I am making a ripple afghan in white and purple red heart. The red heart is a lot softer than it used to be, but my tension finger is getting sore still. Might have to bandaid that when working on this. I am working on it as I can, I have a knit diagonal afghan I am finishing now for a young boy with cancer, then a knit prayer shawl for the grandma who I work with. That has to be done first. But I put a row and a half at my meeting today. Going four rows of white then purple, considering doing two rows of purple these two rounds, then alternating. I see them often done in three colors, not so much two, so I thought this would break up the pattern a little. What do you think? Christi have fun with your graphghan I just cant do those, they drive me crazy. I have three patterns somewhere.
  3. Yes she deserves the pin and earings too, she's getting OLD! lol, Christi and her sister are friends of mine. My sister turned fifty just recently too. I guess we are the younguns. Even though we are the grandmas. Love you! Sweater is beautiful. What was the weight of the yarn, worsted?
  4. I keep getting compliments on my hat I made with a dot pattern I can not find. I used two different purples, a light and dark. People ask me for the pattern, but I cant find it. But I love her patterns and wish her well. I will just have to try another pattern by dot.
  5. I finished the spider man afghan and the rose and white one. I gave the pink one away, and my grandson got the spider man one. The other spider man one was found by daughter and it went to younger grandson. now busy making a baby one, with blue camo yarn and light blue and beige. increased from one amount of points to another, not sure of the number. but it looks good! no pictures of afghans though, sorry.
  6. Thank you, contacted her for the six point one, now can you direct me to how to turn it into a six to twelve to twenty four one? Threads or links or info on getting the pattern from annies attic? Does annies attic still make that pattern? I hear that Aggie may's six point is easier. I have only done twelve point ones. I am using baby yarn and size g hook to make a baby one. Is this possible or should I go for a simpler pattern for a baby one.
  7. looking for this. and pictures and threads.
  8. Stitch markers are your friends with patterns like these. They really helped me keep count. I made a huge one with a large skein of bernat worsted. Don't know how much yarn I used, it was awhile ago. The sock yarn ones are beautiful.
  9. I am doing an afghan that is a graph afghan with tunisian crochet soon, my first one. i will keep an eye on this thread.
  10. Very pretty sweetheart afghan. that is a pattern from one of the crochet magazines isn't it? i beleive there is a cal especially for the sweetheart afghan. I bet she loves it.
  11. it is huge! But it will fit a twin size bed. I am wondering if it's gettin too big. But it is fun to make. And the points are really sharp. Going to see if the red can make one more round then maybe call it quits, even though I have a skein of blue still. Very pretty blue afghan.
  12. I am thinking of starting one with tunisian crochet, any one wnat to join me?
  13. I am making a spiderman afghan right now, it's 59 inches so far with an I hook and I plan on doing at least ten more rounds. I did four rows of each color with a double crochet row of black between colors. I have started another RR with pink and white and I am planning a gray and black spider man one. Everyones look so nice, I especially like the blue ones, and the green ones.
  14. The shell made has been called the double v stitch before in another pattern, 2 double crochets chain 2 two double crochets makes a double v stitch shell, all in the same stitch or area. Then v stitch is the double crochet chain two double crochet in one stitch or area. Same thing as what you are doing in your pattern. The black rows are now double crochet and I am about done catching up, and I am trusting the one row of v stitch, then 2 rows of shells. It's looking pretty good, minamal frilling.. No cupping of the middle. I will crochet on!
