  1. Figured it out via a some of the pattern writers comment combined with pinterest photo. It is done all in one piece, and it ends up looking like a cone with a rounded/cupped top. When the crochet is near completion you need to push in the rounded top so it looks like a bowl, and fold the cone part over it so it then makes a cone whose sides you can fill with stuffing, and then the last few crochet rounds will stitch it shut, so you end up wih a plush cone shaped cap. I hope that made sense. Not quite sure how else to word it.
  2. Samontario, what are you talking about? The treetop instructions are written for one piece, not two. I found comments by the designer of this pattern on facebook and she confirms it is one piece (although her explanation is still confusing, which is why I am here). Now I feel even more lost.
  3. I would like this info too! Crochet World is my #1 favourite magazine and I've been finding old issues here and there at flea markets and whatnot. I want to collect them all and would love a complete list so that I know what I need. I actually tried emailing them and they told me no such list exists! I have a hard time believing they have no record at all of everything they've published. That doesn't seem right for such a business. Plus I know they re-publish old patterns in new issues now and then. So irritating!
  4. Hi everyone! Crochet World is my all-time favourite magazine and I'm trying to figure out how many back issues there are as I want to try to collect them all via thrift shops, flea markets, yard sales, etc. I know the first ever issue was April 1978, but were they always published bi-monthly as they are now? Currently they publish a couple of bigger special issues per year; when did they start that/how many of those special issues have been pusblished? Also I've noticed that there were some issues called Omnibooks back in the 80's, I assume these were also special issues. Does anybody know how many of those there were? Or where else I can go to find such info? I've done dozens of internet searches, and I actually emailed Crochet World to see if they could provide me with a list of all published issues of the magazine, but apparently they don't keep a record of back issues and no such list exists. I don't know if that's really true or if they were just brushing me off. I know they have republished certain patterns in multiple issues over the years so there must be some sort of record. But anyway, if anyone has any answers or info related to these questions I'd love to know! Thanks so much!
  5. I really hope someone can help me out as I've searched all over the internet and can't find anything. I found this publication at a second-hand book store, it is a binder full of cards with crochet patterns and came out in 1985 published by Marshall-Cavendish. From the little information I've found, the cards were obtained through a subscription service and the binder was purchased separately to store them in. There are dividers for different subjects of patterns, and each one has a deck of cards with deck numbers on the back of each card. I can tell there are some missing in mine because there are gaps in the numbers, but I have no idea what number the decks went up to, or how many dividers/subjects there are actually supposed to be (I have 18 in mine). I've seen mention of the full set being big enough to fill 2 or 3 binders, but I have never found any definitive information on the set's complete contents. If anybody is familar with this publication I would really appreciate any information you could share, as I would like to try to figure out what Im missing and hopefully find what I need in thrift shops, yard sales, or ebay. It really is a nice set, if a little outdated. Thanks so much!
  6. I know this thread is old, but I am currently making this blanket and can't find any information on it elsewhere. I just wantto ask loverofyarn, ifyou can remember, when you started making this blanket did it lay flat? I am about 8 rows in and mine is all twisty and wavy and not flat or straight at all. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong, or if maybe it flattens out later after the edging is done. Anything you can recall would be appreciated!
