  1. I have a question about using this size thread. I am just about to join my next ball. What is the best method for joining in the new thread? Thanks, Jeanne
  2. I love this top and look forward to the CAL. Hopefully the link for purchasing comes quickly for the March 1st start date. Jeanne
  3. Thanks for the blog link. I will check that out. I decided to frog it because it was only supposed to take 2 skeins and be 12 rows. I used almost 1 skein on just 2 rows, so something is definitely wrong. I love this yarn, so maybe I will just use it to make a long crescent scarf/shawl.
  4. My L hook is 8mm and I have done scarves and cowls with it before with great success. The photo I think shows the scarf wrapped a few times, especially if it is only 6 inches wide, it must. I have a feeling now that the typo could be that it should state 184" instead of 84". Anyone else have thoughts on this?
  5. I fell in love with the look of the free pattern on the Red Heart website, Shades of Grey Scarf. I bought the suggested yarn and using the recommended hook, I am currently hooking this one. Well, the finished size states, 6" x 84". Mine is over 200" after completing 2 of the 12 rows. I am confused and don't know whether the scarf is supposed to be super long and wrap around the shoulders several times, or if I am way off and should just frog it. Has anyone made this one yet? Or reading the directions, with a starting chain of 484 on a "L" hook, do you think 84" correct? Thanks, Jea
  6. Thank you so much! I have been looking for a poncho without fringe. I love the scalloped edge on this one.
  7. I am in love with this poncho... http://s188.photobucket.com/user/K_crochet/media/crochet_poncho_111308.jpg.html Does anyone know where I might find this pattern? Thanks, Jeanne
  8. I sometimes use methods that others have mentioned above, but when I am using a solid color, I now use the braided join method to lock the yarns and not have any weaving to do at the end! Here is a link to the youtube video showing how to do it:
  9. Love it! I see that pattern book is out of print... bummer
  10. Love it! When I type in Shawler, I come up with over 6000+ items. Can you please send me the link?
  11. I read it as sc in 2nd dc, then do a dc in next stitch, then sc in next, then dc, etc and just keep alternating stitch. When you do row 3, the sc will be in the dc and the dc will be in the sc. I have made washcloths with this stitch and it is pretty. Hope this helps.
  12. Thanks for sharing this link! It is exactly what I was searching for today.
