  2. Hi, I'm preparing for my upcoming vacation. Would like to pack light, so I'm thinking of crocheting a blanket that uses those multi-color yarn. any blanket patterns out there that will look nice on these multicolour yarn?
  3. Hellos. Im from Singapore. Im a beginner in crochet-ing
  4. @redrosesdz Thanks for the information and the notice on the forum rules. Will keep that in mind. Really appreciate your effort spent on the detail information. Thanks. Can't wait to get the yarns and start working on it.
  5. Dear experts, I found this pattern online and im thinking of trying, but i cant really find the exact same yarn that is specified. Can i just use any worsted weight yarn? and what type (acrylic/cotton... etc) will you recommend? Last question is what hook size should i use?
  6. Thanks everyone for the advices on amigurumi and also on how to search for patterns for scrap yarn. Sharing pictures of yarns i got. While i google for suitable project do let me know if you have any suggestions Appreciate all the help. happy crocheting.
  7. Dear all, the story is this, previously I was really ambitious on crocheting amigurumi. Therefore I bought a lot of small skeins of yarn of different colour. After trying to crochet a few amigurumi, I always fail at joining and thus the end product doesn't look as expected. So, I gave up on amigurumi but I not giving up on crocheting. Are there any patterns that I can use the yarns for other than amigurumi?
  8. Hi all, just wanna ask... so is it alright to continue crocheting despite the cracking sound from the wrist? I crochet on and off whenever I have free time, and only recently this cracking sound surface... Any idea what causes it? am I crocheting wrongly?
  9. Hi dears, Thanks for the advice and the extra effort to mark out where exactly the shell is. Really appreciate all the help. Regards, Vanessa
  10. Dear experts, Im following a shell pattern for baby blankets. Im working on the 2nd row of shells but my first row of shell seems to dissappear. They are no longer visible. Is it normal, or am i doing it wrongly???
  11. Hi all, I come from the little sunny island Singapore.Have been crocheting on and off for a couple of months. The only place I could get yarns in Singapore is Spotlight. Anyone else from this little island or from any part of the world knows where else I can find yarns at a better price?
  12. Hi Christina, Although I'm new here too, but still wanna give you a warm welcome. This community has lots of helpful and experienced crochet villagers, so do not afraid to seek help from here. Also, Tampa Doll is right, it will be better for you to post your question on General Help section to get more answers to your question, and also for new crocheter like me to be able to learn from your question.
  13. Hi MagicCrochetFan & Granny Square, Thanks for your detailed explanation. Will head back home and try it out immediately after work today. Also, thanks for all the kind words in your replies. Your kind words made me more motivated and not afraid to post any question when in doubts.
  14. Hi Granny Square & MagicCrochetFan, Thanks for the advice. But I still don't quite get it on the right way to do the reverse shaping. Can anyone kindly translate the 1st 3 rows pattern instruction for me to get a better idea? For right front the instruction is : ch 33 then ch 1 and sc into 2nd ch from the loop and start on row 1, at the end of row 1 (sc in the last ch), ch 5 to begin row 2. I manage to complete the back with the assumption that the back left and right should be the same instruction as in at end of row, ch 5 to start new row. But i observed that for right front, the left and right sides have different instruction, therefore im stuck with trying to reverse the instruction.
  15. Hi all, With the help of many villagers from this community, i have managed to finish the back and right front of the pattern. How should i start off the right left?? Can i work as per how i did it for the right front and flipped it over as left? Also, what does reverse shaping means? Actually i would also need some explanation on shaping? Apologies for my many question as its my first project.
