  1. Hmm, definitely a mistake in row 1. I think it should read: Turn with 3 ch., 1 tr. into same stitch as chain., miss 1 stitch, 2 tr. into next st., 1 ch., 2 tr. into next stitch., miss 1 st., 2 tr. into last st. The 'gp' stitch they are referring to is finally explained on row 6 as (all into one stitch or ch. sp.: 2 tr., ch., 2 tr. The twisted tr. seems to refer to a round the post stitch as it round the post of the tr. on the previous row. Well, that's what I'm going to do, seems to be working. The increase is just a normal increase by doing more than one into one stitch. Will have to write this down and keep it with the pattern! No wonder it was selling on ebay.

    Ignore post

    Ignore this, duplicate post. Can't see delete option.
  3. I've attached a photo of the pattern's image to see if that helps anyone help me. I am completely stuck. It is a UK pattern so our dc=US sc and our tr=US dc I've made the two circular panels which go on either side of the baby's head and now I'm trying to make the middle section. I don't know how to do twisted tr nor nor a 'gp' which in the abbreviations list means group and I'm not clear on how to increase either. When the pattern instructs to do a twisted tr is it meaning that I should do the tr down into the stitches of the previous row? I just can't make head nor tail of it. Is a group a set number of tr into one stitch or some sort of stitch I haven't met before? I've searched the web and can't find anything nor corrections to the old pattern and nobody on Ravelry has done it either. Thanks to those who responded to my earlier query but I'm still stuck. Those are my problems but I am starting to wonder if there is a mistake in the number of ch. at the start as it doesn't seem to work when I get to the 1st row. Middle section: Make 7 ch., work 1 d.c. into 2nd ch. from hook, 1 d.c. into each ch. to end. (6 d.c.) 1st row.-Turn with 3 ch., 1 tr. into next st. , miss 1 st., 2 tr., 1ch., 2 tr. into next st., miss 1 st., 1 tr. into each of the last 2 sts. 2nd row. - Turn with 3 ch., 1 twisted tr., round 2nd tr., 1 gr. in centre, 2 twisted tr., round last 2 tr. 3rd row.- Turn with 3 ch., 1 twisted tr. round the 2nd tr., inc. 2 tr. before gr., 1 gr. into centre, inc. 2 tr., 2 twisted tr. round last 2 tr. Work 2 rows in pattern as set, with 4 twisted tr. at each side of gr. 6th row.- Turn with 3 ch., 1 twisted tr., inc. 1 gr. (2 tr., 1ch, 2 tr), 2 twisted tr., 1 gr., 2 twisted tr., inc. 1 gp., 2 twisted tr. to end. Continue without further inc. until work measures 8 3/4 ins. from commencement.
  4. Hello everyone, I've got a Peter Pan baby bonnet crochet pattern which mentions a stitch I haven't encountered previously and there are no instructions on how to do it. It is called a twisted treble (UK terms). After ch 7 I do a row of DC then the instruction is to do a row of twisted treble crochet. Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks

  6. I happened upon an example described as tulip. It looks quite similar, although I think the scale is smaller. What do you think?
  7. Hi there, I was admiring the Oscar de la Renta suit on the left of the attached picture. It is described as being crocheted. I was wondering what the pattern is and if anyone has seen something similar in crochet patterns as I my purse is not deep enough to stretch to lovely Oscar de la Renta.
  8. Thank you. I have a large stash of cross stitch cotton which I'd thought to use but I see from what I've started (the roses) that it's going to burn through the stash before it's finished so I'm going to start again with sewing threads. I also thought I'm make do with a 1.5mm hook but the pattern calls for a smaller size and I can see that the petals on the roses aren't going to stack up properly with the slightly bigger stitches. Best to just frog for now rather than get too deep in. These doilies are beautiful but it's going to work out expensive for the number of thread spools involved. I see the book is being advertised here on the banner advert, it's the crochet Masterclass book I'm working from. Thank you for replying so quickly.
  9. Hi there, I am working on a Ferosah painted doily pattern. I know what a slip stitch is but I just don't think I can be doing this correctly. When one has a chain space and a completely new length of thread to slip stitch into the space the tail is loose. The next instruction is to chain one then do a sc (US terminology). It just leaves a bit of a loose start and I wonder if there is some little trick to it as I'm self taught and may have missed something. How do you slip stitch new threads into chain spaces? Thanks in advance
  10. Hello all, I have just been working on a hat which has rounds of treble crochet (UK) followed by rounds of single crochet (UK). My problem is even though the pattern instructed me to keep the single crochet loose and I really tried it was still tighter, making a tight band at the bottom of the hat. Are there any tricks to keeping it looser? I was wondering if I could just change hook to a bigger one and then go back but perhaps there is a better way to hold the hook? I know treble crochet is looser but I find my single crochet always ends up tighter, even in comparison to double crochet (UK). The hat isn't meant to be tighter at the bottom btw, it's just part of the pattern.
  11. That's really pretty and modern too. It turned out beautifully.
  12. That's what I end up doing too, I just keep adding to the creations until the baby is born. what lovely baby things you made.
  13. On the link to the Pine Cone Hill Outlet this throw is now reduced to 117 dollars.
  14. Thank you AngelRoseLite. I'm about to get started on a set for my baby now (due January). I think next time I'll use a less vivid green.
