  1. It's near 2 am here, and I figured it out! if you follow the instructions exactly the same as the back, and ignore the ommitting part, you get the correct sizing. UGH! it's so frustrating, I sat here for HOURS trying to figure this out. I will make a ravelry thing for it tomorrow, hopefully it will help more people Once again, thank you guys so much, you guys are awesome! ^_^
  2. XD LOL!!!! you are so funny! Though I have to agree, I have noticed a very big increase in errors in patterns today than when my grandmother was younger. I guess they just don't see crocheting and knitting as important anymore. It's sad really. I know mistakes are made, it can happen even in books, but I have noticed that I have had more trouble and mistakes in patterns that are written from like late 90's early 2000's onward, than I have from like patterns I have gotten that were from my grandmother's time. I thank you for taking the time to find another on that looks exactly the same. I will show her this and hopefully she likes it, if not, I will work with what I have here and try to find a work around for it. Actually, what I might do is test out all of the other sizes and see if they are all wrong. if they are, I can put them here if you guys want, in case anyone else has an issue with this. I might make a ravelry project post as well for the information. Again, Thank you guys so much! I really do appreciate it! ^_^
  3. Yeah, I have this one...if you actually click on it...it only give you the error correction for page 11 at the armohole for the back...nothing else.
  4. My mother was looking through my issue of Crochet world when she spotted this pattern in the 2016 February edition. She fell in love with it and I started making it. I know it's been a while for it, but I'm only just now getting to the left panel of it. Though, after I did the lace, the pattern instructions for the left panel says to copy the back panel instructions up through the armhole, only omitting the increase row on the small size only. I am doing the 2XL version because my mom likes her sweaters and things like them super big. and the only stitch count it gave me for the entire panel was 56. After doing the first row after the lace pattern, I have 57, not 56...I pulled it out and followed it again and still came up with the same issue. I read through the entirety of the back panel, thinking I take it out somewhere else in the pattern, but it doesn't appear to be the case. Not only that, it doesn't give me how many stitches I'm suppose to have for certain areas like it does with the back, so it's really rather confusing. I have even tried to work it out on my graph paper and it's still the same result. I know that the back panel chain is 134 and you end up with 111 stitches to work with the first row after the lace work, so I tried seeing how many stitches I would be taking away, thinking I could get a good idea of what it might be, but it tells me that I should only have 45 left X.X so that was a dead end. I was wondering if anyone else had done this pattern, more preferably the 2XL, but any little bit of help that is offered I will take, and I want to know if you have run into the same issue. If anyone has the stitch count too that would be super awesome. Thank you for all your help! ^_^
  5. blocked or not, I see what you are saying now! HAVE ALL THE INTERNET!!!! You are my hero!!!! If I could shower you in gifts right now, I totally would!!!! thank you thank you THANK YOU!!!!
  6. Well..for an update, the including the ch5 as a possible decrease didn't really work, at 18 i have 21...not the 19....I'm still trying to figure out if I'm wrong or not with my calculations...
  7. Hmm...I'm not sure...wait...unless....unless the chain 5 over the two you brought together counts as the decrease at the beginning...I don't know though...I will give it a try...I just don't know how a decrease at the beginning...if my calculator is correct, by row 18 I should have 19 meshes because at 16 you have 23, then at the end of row 17 you would have 21, then at row 18 you would have 19 right...X.X I'm so confused...because after row 18 it says to decrease on either side like in row 18 but row 18 doesn't tell you how to decrease in the beginning.......and I'm talking in circle XD LOL!!! oh geeze. I will try what you said, and I will try the other theory I got, though thank you, because you did spark it lol.
  8. Fist off, I have just noticed that my last link in my last post was removed. I don't understand why that website isn't allowed, but, that's fine, I didn't know and do apologize. Secondly, I am doing a snood I found, a perky snood -> http://www.***********.com/crochet/persno.html and I am confused about the decreasing that starts at 17...or is it 16...either way, it says to decrease, which is fine but, after row 18, it says to decrease on both sides like in the last row...but it only tells you how to decrease at the end of the row, not the beginning and end. So I'm wondering just how to read this pattern here lol. any help is greatly appreciated.
  9. I asked about this pattern on another site, and it seems that no one else has done this pattern. This isn't the issue, as the people there have helped me figure out a lot of it despite not having done it. The pattern is... I found it while looking on google and had decided to try it. it was on allcrafts.net. I have just finished second front but...the sleeves are giving me an issue and...well...there's no real indication of where seams should be...it just says sew seams... So, my question is...has anyone here done this pattern before...and if they have...can you tell me how it's suppose to look or give me some help with it...because I'm starting ot doubt if I'm doing it right even lol.
  10. Yeah, that's the one froggy, in your second post...but that's also the only person I saw selling the pattern itself, not the entire book. I really don't want to buy a pattern that came in en entire book if I don't have to. I don't even know if that's allowed to sell individual patterns from whole books...if I have no other choice and can't get the book...I might...just something about that rubs me the wrong is all lol.
  11. Nope...just the photo...unfortunately...I remember it saying it was printed in 1996 but...only the one that you showed me pops up...that's the only reason I remember when they said it was printed lol.
  12. no...unfortunately...it's not it...I wish it was or I would have scooped it lol I can try to find the cover again...if I can remember what I typed...might go through my history lol. http://pixhst.com/avaxhome/f7/0d/00150df7_medium.jpeg I found this on google and it was linked to a list of annie's books that someone had composed and they said it had it in there....I can't find the side for it though now, my history is way too long...
  13. I saw a picture of a afghan that had a bunch of antique cars on it. I thought it would be good for my grandfather who is into all the really old cars. I searched everywhere for the pattern and found out that Annie's attic made it. I went to the site to see if they had it for sale, and they didn't have it. I went to ebay, amazon, everything, and the book it was in, wasn't there being sold. It's in a book called Annie's favorite afghans and no one is selling the book. I have seen one person selling the individual pattern but...the thing is, if it only came in the one book, how can I be sure it is a legitimate copy and not like photocopy...I don't want to buy something counterfeit you know...I looked around and it seems that the pattern is super rare, a lot of people that are looking for it, have got the response that you may never find it, it was a rare print. I want to know if anyone knows where I can still get it, how much it would be, or if it in fact came in other pattern books and not just the one I managed to find. I also want to know if it is in fact such a rare print or are the people that are answering maybe exaggerating just a bit. I do plan to check out my local thrift stores for the book and hoping it's there but...again, I want to know if there is a place I could get it or something.
  14. OK! AWESOME!!!! ^_^...thing is now...now I have more than one idea T^T XD LOL!!!
  15. I for got to ask this yesterday but, if I were to make a photoshop JPEG of how I want it to look, with the logo and everything, could I use that on here as well, or does it have to be a photo? I know what size I need it, I need it as big as it will get both in length and width lol , he's 6'7" lol, so I need it to be super big lol
  16. O.O oh wow...that actually looks amazing. I don't mind doing all that work, I'm use to tons do planning before I get down to something so won't be that out of the ordinary for me ^_^ Thank you for the link though, that is awesome! ^_^
  17. hmm...ok...as for the graph thing...I would have to learn how to graph properly or the graph I would make would be the same size as the blanket XD LMFAO!!!!!
  18. I am looking for this pattern I found the picture on pinterest and someone on there had asked where the person had got the pattern. The person that made the blanket never replied back and I was wondering if this was a pattern somewhere that wasn't linked, in a book that wasn't mentioned or if the person made it on their own. if it's a pattern that I can either find free or purchase, I would love to have it and make it for my uncle. Thank you for all your help in advance ^-^
  19. I am doing the pattern from the crochet world magazine that is titled the sweetheart rose baby afghan and I have no idea how the anchor dc works, I have read it and re-read it and it's still making little sense to me, I think i have it figured out but something seems off, if someone has this pattern and knows what I'm talking about, could you please explain it a little better to me please. I'm not sure if i could post the part of the pattern I'm on...would it be against the law or something...because it's in a magazine and I'm replicating it?...I don't know lol.
  20. yeah, like that one, only without the fishing wire...though...that is a neat idea for a hoop skirt lol, i might keep that link XD LOL!!! but, yeah, like that one...wondering now if i could do it in either double or single crochet and have it still be the same length...hmm lol something that would go over that...if that makes more sense edit: I have to mention though, I have one of the newer modeled barbies like, form i guess it's an online show called dreamhouse or something like that...i wish i still had my older ones but i don't lol
  21. I'm looking for a free pattern for a barbie bell shaped skirt. I have searched google and i keep getting piterest lol. I want to be able to adjust the length of it but, the original finished product of the original pattern has to be touching the floor and possibly then some. I have never worked with a skirt for a barbie before and was wanting to play around with it before i decide what i like for a dress i plan on making. I don't intend to use the original pattern but, just something to give me an idea of placement and things. any help would be greatly appreciated, and I have already checked ravelry and i can't find what I'm looking for lol. Again, thank you for any help that is given.
  22. Hello everyone, I am looking for a winter sock pattern.all of the sock patterns I seem to find are lacy looking, or they are ankle socks, or just above the ankle. I'm looking for a warm set of winter socks that sit half way up the calf. My other set of socks I have are starting to get really holey and they don't stay up anymore lol. Thank you to everyone that helps, it's very much appreciated ^_^
  23. lol ok I will totally look there and bookmark the website for reference. I was kind of hoping to make it a scarf but, an afghan or a tablecloth would be just as good, maybe even a wall piece for her new house lol. Thanks for the idea! ^_^
  24. ok I will definitely work on hook sizes, I had a feeling I might have to lol. Though, how do you carry the unused color? that's a new term to me lol
  25. Ok, I found a chart that I really want to make a scarf out of. the chart is this one: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spirit-wolf-version-2-square-chart I am making it for my mother-in-law as a surprise. I want to make it out of a turquoise yarn and either silver or light gray yarn. Though, the issue I'm having right now as I look at it is...I have no clue how I'm going to use the two colors lol. Would I have to constantly break off and rejoin, or is there a way that allows me to have both the yarn on at the same time?....ok I don't think I worded that right or I am explaining myself clearly or not lol. Please forgive me. it's also 90 stitches by 90 stitches...if I'm reading that correctly....if that even helps any. I have never done something like this before lol if anyone has either ever done this pattern before or even knows what I'm trying to communicate ot anyone lol your help is much appreciated. Thank you in advanced to anyone and everyone that helps me! ^_^
