A Few Things About Me

  • Favorite hook type
  • Favorite projects
  1. I think it is a little thicker than most t-shirt yarn but this the first time I have used this type of yarn. https://www.woolandthegang.com/product/jersey-be-good/yarn-and-wool/V560225184
  2. Ok what is the secret to crocheting with t-shirt yarn? I am making a bag/purse. The pattern calls for a size 8mm hook and the project is twisting and curling up. I have loosened my tension and have tried three different bigger size hooks?! Please help.
  3. I am going to start making YouTube tutorials and was wondering about crocheting FREE patterns on my channel. Obviously you cannot make a tutorial from a paid pattern but are there any restrictions or is there anything I can or cannot do when making a tutorial from something else's FREE pattern? I will post a link to the original written pattern so the creator will get the credit, of course. Other people make tutorials from Red Heart or Lion Brand patterns for example, I just don't want to get in trouble before I even get started! Lol
  4. I have recently started making my hat from the bottom up, which I just love! My question is, (and this may seem silly) when working up to the top and decreasing, what formula do you use? Top down hat are normally increased by 12, (12, 24, 36, 48 etc) I have tried decreasing in this way when working to the bottom and it never comes out right. :-(
  5. Hello! Has anyone made this Bohemian Circle vest before for a large woman? I have a lady interested in this but she said she is very large and is afraid it will not fit around her. https://www.etsy.com/listing/399542163/crochet-bohemian-circle-vest-stevie?ref=shop_home_active_9
  6. Looking for a "full body" Jack Skellington Nightmare Before Christmas blanket pattern pixel / granny square style pattern. I have not mastered the graph blankets. Ravelry Pinterest xcetera has been no help. Paid patterns are fine too! TIA
  7. I want to make a swimsuit cover top to wear over my suit while swimming. Any suggestions? Please and thank you! ????
  8. Thank you! I found the website! I am in the process of having it tested also.
  9. Question for all of you lovely hookers that write and sell your own patterns! I just finished writing my first one and was wondering what are the steps I need to take to insure I have a good written pattern that I can sell?
  10. Are there any books on learning to design your own crochet patterns? Not a book with patterns. Or on how to read a chart lol I can't seem to find any! ????
  11. This is really cool! I need something similar to this but custom order forms!
  12. Hey, this is completely off topic but have either one of you used the stitch works software? I found out it is now free and just downloaded it and was wondering how everyone likes it. I am VERY new to chart patterns despite my 20+ years of crocheting ????
  13. Yeah that was me lol! Ok thank you!
  14. Lol and that is definitely not me! I get so confused when trying to wing a pattern ????
