  1. After posting this, I decided to try and see if I could figure it out for myself. (I'm impatient like that.) I started with the pattern that CrochetDad had posted, the one that starts with two wheels, and tweaked it a bit (for example, I do much better with double stitches than triple). I even busted out an Excel spreadsheet and I THINK I have worked out how to calculate the number of chain stitches to start with for any number of wheels in the foundation row. Once I got the foundation row worked out, CrochetDad, I used your instructions for the clusters & shells, but kept with double stitches. Anyway, here's a picture of the strip I did just to experiment, and a close-up. I'm still practicing, so it's a little bumpy in spots, but I think I have worked it out. Comments/criticisms/questions are welcome!
  2. I think that might be just what I need! I will probably order the book next time I get paid. Wow, you guys rock!
  3. Believe it or not, your blog post with the unfinished rectangle is actually what got me fixated on the idea. I want to make a massive blanket for my own house. I've given dozens away over the years, and I don't own a single one of my own creations. I plan to use 2 strands and a large hook with a single color, and I believe the texture would be perfect. Now I just have to learn how to do this particular stitch combination....
  4. Hi there! This is my first post here, so my apologies if this is out of line, but can you point me toward instructions for the foundation row of a rectangular wooleater/bavarian/wheel stitch? I don't mind paying for a pattern, but I haven't even been able to find a hint that one exists! Thank you so much, this looks like a really friendly place. Story
