    Substitute Yarn weight

    Thank you! I may just buy the right yarn since I am not that experience yet. I could always find something else to make with the yarn I have.

    Substitute Yarn weight

    I asked this question in my introduction, and I did have one comment.(Thank you Granny Square) I want to substitute bulky weight yarn for super bulky weight yarn. Is that possible or am I just wishing? The pattern is for a Hockey Skate Blanket. I have already bought the yarn. Now I don't know how to change it. The pattern says 5 stitches equal 4". I did 5 stitches with my yarn and J hook and it is 2 1/2". The pattern calls for a P hook. Is there any way I can use the bulky yarn or should I just go buy the Super Bulky? Bummed here. Thank you in advance.

    Hello and HELP

    Yes that is the pattern. Yes it is like those blankets you climb into. I want to use bulky weight yarn instead of super bulky weight. I just thought that strands of super bulky would be too warm. I already bought the yarn . It is Stylecraft brand. It doesn't seem to be bulky to me.

    Hello and HELP

    Hello All! Not sure if I have been on here before...but I have been crocheting for...seems like forever! I am trying to increase my knowledge. Most of the time when I make something I give it away. Someday I will actually have to make something for myself. :o) I live in Oklahoma, married and have a Yorkie named Harley. Yes we ride Harleys. Anyway, I am hoping you can help me. I am trying to make a Hockey Sock blanket for my grandsons. (1 for each one) The pattern calls for Super Bulky and use 2 strand and the P hook. I personally think super bulky using 2 strand is too heavy and too hot for Tennessee where they live. So....I am wanting to use Stylecraft Yarn Chunky and use a smaller hook. Now how can I do this? I tried using a J hook, but 5 stitches equal 2 1/2". The pattern's gauge is 5 stitches equal 4". I don't know how to get that gauge and size using J or K hook, or if it is even possible. Everything I find is going from thinner yarn to bulky yarn but not the other way. Is it possible? Thank you so much! Hope this is the place to ask this.
  7. Ahhhhhh....Thank you SO much!! Sorry it took me so long to "get it"!

    We really enjoyed the students we had. My kids learned so much.
  9. I understood that part ...it is when it says to do the 2 dc, 1 dc, 2 dc ...part. Are the DC made on top of the sc? That is how I did it. I did the 5 sc then turned and did the DC over the 5 sc then I couldn't figure out how to go around the legs. Sorry...I am sure I am just envision it wrong.:-/

    Introduction

    Hello, My name is Eileen(HeeTinok) and I joined because I am working on a pattern by Darski and I am stuck. I live in Oklahoma, been crocheting a long time. I work at a College and when I make things I give them away to students or their children or anyone who wants the projects. So basically I am looking for some help on "Snow Days" doll outfit. I do not understand the pants instructions.
