  1. This is a simple, light pattern you can make with your scrap balls of yarn! It's nearing September but it's still a tad bit warm out so this lacy blanket should work perfect for your little one! Direct link in blog here. Hook Size: 5.00mm Gauge: 1 pattern repeat = 3" Finished Size: 27" x 32" Skill: Beginner/Intermediate ch 100 Row 1: sc in 2nd ch and in every ch across to the end Row 2: ch 3, 1 dc in next 4 sc, *sk 2 sc, 5 dc in next sc, ch 2, sk 4 sc, 1 dc in next 5 sc, repeat from * to end. End the repeat with 4 dc in the last 3 sc (this means you'll be putting 2 dc in the last sc to achieve an ending with 4 dc.) Row 3: ch 3, 1 dc in next 3 dc, * sk ch2sp, 5 dc in 1st dc of the shell, ch 2, 1 dc in next 5 dc, repeat from * across ending repeat at 1 dc in last 3 sts Repeat row 3 to desired length. Color layout: 5 rows of each color, green, pink then cream Border: sc all the way around making enough on all sides divisible by 4 + 3 (add up one side, subtract 3 then divide by 4) Begin 1st st to left of corner st Rnd 1: ch 1, sc in same st, *ch 3, sk 1 sc, [sc in next 3 sc, ch 3, skip 1 sc] to 1 st before the corner st, sc in next st, 3 sc in corner st, sc in next sc * repeat around, omitting last sc, join with sc to 1st sc Rnd 2: ch 1, sc in each sc and ch-3sp around, placing 3 sc in each corner, join with sl st Rnd 3: ch 1, sc in same st, *[sc in next 2 sc, ch 3, skip 1 sc, sc in next sc] to corner st, 3 sc in corner st, sc in next sc, ch 3, skip 1 sc, sc in next sc repeat from * around, omitting last sc, join with sl st to 1st sc Rnd 4: ch 1, sc in each sc and ch 3 sp around, placing 3 sc in each corner st, join with sl st to first sc -Stitch Key- sc = single crochet dc = double crochet ch = chain sp = space sl st = slip stitch sk = skip I also attached some photos! If you whip one up, please share yours!
  2. Hey Heather! I'm right "outside" of Columbus. Galloway here!
  3. I am just not good with naming my patterns! I really do try but I end up leaning towards the color; but that can be a bad thing considering you can use ANY colors! So my latest pattern just got a generic name. If someone wants to throw some ideas my way, I will seriously consider them! This pattern is super easy and can have the colors changed around for uniqueness. The shell stitch is done in multiples of 6, so keep that in mind if you want to make yours wider. http://missedstitches.blogspot.com/2014/05/crochet-shell-stitch-blanket.html Be sure to browse through the rest of my blog for more FREE patterns and like me on FB to get updated when I add more!
  4. I've come back with an update! I have a new picture of the Couples Blanket plus I'm starting a new project with Granny Stripes! http://missedstitches.blogspot.com/2013/07/update-granny-stripes-corner-to-corner.html
  5. I am fairly new to a lot of yarn and crochet/knit jargon. I'm still learning about different yarns. What exactly does LYS mean?
  6. My blog is strictly about my crochet. I don't post recipes or family photos, I reserve that for facebook. I would like to trade links with other crocheters who have mostly crochet on their blogs. Let's get started! Here's mine! http://missedstitches.blogspot.com Now, reply and give me yours!
  7. I have a pattern I'm doing an afghan in for family and friends. It's an alteration of the RedHeart Twilight Shells blanket. I didn't like how their's was stitched, it didn't feel uniform to me, so I changed it to something easier. Crochet Shells Afghan: Think Spring and Twilight Then, I'm currently working on a blanket for my Dear Boyfriend and I, I'm calling it a Couples Blanket. Here's my progress so far: Couples Blanket: Corner to Corner Crochet Attached is the most recent photo of the Couples Blanket.
  8. Galloway here! Although I'm originally from Zanesville and have lived in Dresden, and Fairborn.
  9. Kyarn doesn't appear to be online any longer. Knitpicks appears to be a site that sells only it's own personal yarn, not any name brands. Yarn.com also appears to not have any name brands that I'm familiar with, such as Bernat, Lion Brand, etc. Looks like specialty of some kind. Creative Yarn Source- more brands I've never heard of. Jimmy Beans Wool - By manufacturer, none that are sold in Joanns, Wal-mart, Michaels... Yarn Market- Some familiar brands, very limited colors Nordic Mart- Only yarn made by one place, never heard of it. Maybe some insight on how good some of these specialty yarns are if you shop these sites and use their stuff? I mainly shop Joanns.com but I'm looking for somewhere more affordable. Has anyone shopped at knitting-warehouse.com? They seem to have brand name yarns for lower prices.
  10. Thanks, Mattenylou! I've only been crocheting for about 2 years but I love it!

  13. That's because it put the period at the end of that sentence as part of the link. http://missedstitches.blogspot.com
  14. That may seem so to you, but his 5 replies to his post (which was up after mine) to my zero replies with 9 views says otherwise. Thanks for the 'warm' welcome..... I'll take my crochet interest elsewhere, I think. Was really hoping to meet some nice people who share my passion.
