  1. Thank you SO much, the link to the visual really helped!!! Now, just to make certain I am reading this correctly, after that when it says 3 dc in next 3 ch, it really IS 3 dc in each of the next 3 chains??? I hate to sound stupid and I have made ripples before but it has been awhile...........
  2. I found a pattern in my stash of books that I want to make but I have a question about the directions. This is a variation on a ripple pattern. The part i have a question about reads: Beginning in 4th chain from hook, (dc2tog) 3 times, 3 dc in next 3 ch, * (dc2tog) 6 times, 3 dc in next 3 ch. My question is, after the very first of the pattern, when you get to the (dc2tog) 6 times, does that mean 6 times in the same stitch?? You repeat this set of instructions 7 times so I am sort of assuming yes but it looks funny to me<G>. If it helps, the pattern is called Ocean Waves Throw from a 2008 issue of Crochet Today. Thanks for any help, I appreciate it! Cindy
  3. Hi GrannyI Thanks for the help. Yes, it is a stole type shawl. The patten calls for it to be 72 inches long but that would be WAY too big for her, I'm thinkin'!!!! I appreciate the advice!
  4. I'm in Anderson and just joined this site! Would love to find some fellow crocheters around here!!
  5. I was just in Ft. Wayne last night!! I live in Anderson, but am up in Ft. Wayne about once a month or so. Cindy
  6. I am making a friend a prayer shawl. The pattern calls for it to be 60 inches long when done but my friend is barely scraping 5 ft tall, so shouldn't I make it shorter?? If so, how do I decide what length to make it?? If it helps, she is also petite. Thanks for any advice! Cindy
  7. Hi! I'm Cindy from Indiana. I have been crocheting off and on since I was about 9 when my grandmother taught me to crochet. I used to go long spells without crocheting (gasp) but lately have been addicted.! Do NOT open my living room closet unless you want to be deluged with bags of yarn...... Currently I am crocheting a prayer shawl for a friend, having just made one for myself in a different pattern. I am mostly self taught so I always have something to learn and will always have questions!! I work as a nurse and am mom to a beagle and 2 coonhounds and a pug named Kelly. My sons are grown. Hope to post again soon! Thanks for letting me join!
