  1. Not the one but thanks. These were all a solid color and no fringe.
  2. Yeah I wanted this particular leisure arts book with picture popcorns
  3. Thanks, nothing there. They were similar to this. Was positive it was leisure arts and there were about 4 or 5 in the book each a pastel color. I am beginning to think I imagined this. https://coolcreativity.com/crochet/popcorn-stitch-bear-baby-blanket-free-crochet-pattern/
  4. Yeah been all over the site. I am sure it's not very old but maybe even after a few years it's out of print. I must be remembering something all wrong about this. I will give my brain sometime to remember thrn contact leisure arts.
  5. Thanks for the suggestions. I don't think it's out of print. At the moment can't log in to where I bought it so need to contact them. I may even be remembering wrong I bought it from them but I know I bought both new. Could have even been in store at Joannes. Tried searching joannes but they have only 1 baby afghan crochet book at the moment. Was sure I bought both books and found the one. Probably a good excuse to get organized.
  6. Sorry not those. I am positive it's a leisure arts book and they are done in one color in one piece and maybe 4 or 5 in the book. Then again maybe I dreamed it up, ha ha. I know I bought an actual booklet if I bought it. I know where I bought the circular baby afghans online but they are not carrying either book now. I thought I bought them together from that place.
  7. Pretty sure it's leisure arts. Blankets are all done in a solid color I think pastel with a design in the middle using maybe a popcorn stitch so not a graphghan changing colors or Tunisian or cross stitch on top. Done like the caron alphabet afghan I think. Can't remember the designs but maybe one is a rabbit or maybe a baby rattle. Maybe 4 or 5 blankets in the book. Don't think it's a very old book, maybe a few years. I was sure I bought it along with the leisure arts circular baby afghans a few years ago so maybe they came out around the same time? Found the circular baby afghans but can't find where I put the other one and can't remember the name of it or maybe I never bought it. Driving me nuts and I have looked all over the leisure arts site. Mary
  8. Skip the bonbons yarn. I have seen it in person at the craft store and those skeins are very tiny and the yarn is thin to me. Read heart super saver is a much better choice than the bonbons to start out with. For me I use boye hooks and any brand hook that has that similar tip. The Susan bates hooks the point is to slanty for me and I snag the yarn but I hold my hook like holding a fork not like holding a pencil so that could be why. When I first learned I used the book 10-20-30 minutes to learn to crochet as it had nice left and right handed illustrations and I am a lefty. You can probably find it on amazon, I just happen to order a lot of crochet and needle work supplies from 123. Mary
  9. When joining the same color I use the double knot if that's what you are talking about. Have used this for about 5yrs now on my prayer shawls and so have the other ladies in my church group and we have not had one come undone yet so holds very good for us. If you mean something else then sorry. Mary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nq_7EXTWHE
  10. Oh duh I see. Boy not thinking good today. Mary
  11. I plan on doing an afghan like that. Not sure if the ebay one is the same but the one I like is a leisure arts pattern and I like the way the hexagons are with the stars in the middle so it's crocheted as one hexagon and you start with the white then add the blue then join them I think, don't have my pattern in front of me. You can see a close up of a finish on this blog. You can buy that booklet as a download from leisure arts or you can just get the flag pattern as a download from them and I think it's also in another of their bigger booklets.

  12. Like in this video, that is what I would do if making that blanket, just undo the extra chains on the foundation row. Mary
  13. Ok that blog is not the best example but with the pattern they are doing I would just chain how ever long I want it then at the end of the foundation row I can udue the chains I don't need, that is how I do it but maybe I am loosing it today. Mary
  14. I usually just chain how ever long I need it to be then on the 2nd row just undue the chains I don't need. Here are some photos of what I am talking about. Saves me from figuring out the multiples. Oops not on the second row, just do how it shows on the blog and here is the right blog now, geesh my mind is gone today.

  15. Ok I guess I have done the standing stitch and didn't know it since I use a slip knot, who knew. The website posted shows without using a slip not and you can see it doesn't look as good as using the slip knot. Mary
