  1. Caron simply soft. Great for beginners, lots of colors, and super soft. I also love the Bernat blanket/baby blanket line: super soft, great for beginners (I learned with it), and washes very well. It’s the only yarn my mother in law uses! It’s a 6 bulky yarn, but if you got an L, M, or N hook, you would do just fine with the bigger yarns. It’s the smaller hook that’s giving you problems.
  2. Looking for a yarn in any weight that has a colorway similar to shawl in a ball’s (possibly discontinued?) “zen azalea”- oranges, yellows, and reds. Anyone have any suggestions?
  3. Can anyone translate this pattern into normal English, or find me a link that I can understand?http://diysbook.com/post/crochet-easy-spring-loop-scarf/300306353 I love the scarf, but I have no idea what the person is saying. Not from lack of crochet knowledge, mind you, but because the person uses such poor English that nobody can understand it. Either they used a translation app, or they just have bad English skills. Help please!
  4. That’s exactly what I was looking for- something fairly simple so it wouldn’t be lost in all the colors, but more than just the basics. The second one looks great! Thanks!
  5. Making a blanket for my grandma and I’m using Bernat Blanket Brights in “Red, White, and Boom” with solid red for the border. (Her favorite colors are red and cobalt blue.) My question is, what’s a good stitch to use with the variegated yarn? I don’t want to use just a basic stitch, because she crochets herself and can do all of those. (She asked me to make it because she can’t read patterns and can only do straight lines, plus she saw a couple that I made for myself and loved them.) So, what’s a stitch that works well with big variegated yarn but is more than just the basic ones? (S
  6. Anyone have any idea how to crochet a cover for this? I think it’s a great idea, but I can’t think of how to do it lol.
  7. I found this: https://www.lovecrafts.com/en-us/p/knitted-folding-craft-knitting-storage-bag-basket-knitting-pattern-by-sarah-dennis?a_aid=4e5c1756 but it’s knitting and I can’t do that either lol. I do really like it though.
  8. I have a crochet bag I got from my grandma that’s fairly ugly, but I like to use it to hold my current project lol. I think it’s from the 70s or 80s and the fabric is what makes it look ugly. Anyone have any ideas about how to make it look less ugly? I don’t sew, and Pinterest is no help...
  9. Oh, and I was able to open that gnome link on my iPad in Safari... so I don’t think it’s a no Chrome problem.
  10. I did manage to find this: https://www.etsy.com/listing/640344073/garden-gnomes-crochet-pattern?ref=shop_home_active_15&crt=1 . It’s not free, but it’s the only thing I could find in English, and it’s TWO of the gnomes! Maybe it will help you guys also!
  11. Looking for a pattern for this gnome I found on Pinterest, but the link only had the picture and nothing else. My husband loves gnomes and the muppets, and this one looks like a muppet gnome! Any help would be great!
  12. I was wondering if I could do that, and you figured it out and answered my question. Problem solved, thanks! I’ll definitely post pictures when I get it done.
  13. Wow, do you have a pattern? I think it would be awesome in gold or silver!
  14. I did think of, though, making two of the first link, putting batting inside, and crocheting it together. Not sure if that’ll work though.
  15. Well, I was thinking of a puffy shape, which is why I said amigurumi lol, and the tree will be the size of a regular Christmas tree, so bigger- around the size of a regular tree topper. But thanks for the ideas, and keep thinking if you want to!
