  1. I learned the sc, dc, repeat as 'up down stitch' from one crochet site That is how I know it, too. It is a lovely textured pattern stitch when done in one colour only and covers a fairly large swath. If you use variegated yarn or short colour change yarn of any kind, something is lost, you can't really appreciate how nice it is. IMO, anyway.
  2. Thank you, Granny Square. I wonder if I should attack this one fine day (after my 3 much smaller projects are complete). I sure do love the look of it. I can see maybe getting a bit bored from time to time.
  3. Might I ask what a boho hobo bag is? 😄 I have a bunch of projects on the go, too. It's like a disease with me.
  4. Sounds like good advice to me.
  5. Thanks for showing us this. Where can we find the pattern?
  6. Many thanks for that link. I didn't realize there were so many styles of crocheted dresses available.
  7. I was wondering why so many crocheted dresses are halter-topped.
  8. Never heard of this before. Looks like a good idea if you are changing colours a lot.

    Hard to say why an available pattern would not have been made by somebody, I haven't noticed but may not have 'drilled down' on many patterns like that...do you select 'English' when you are looking at patterns? Gee, I didn't know we could select languages. I better go have another look! I am a bit lost on ravelry. I find it a hodge podge. I can't figure out how to post a photo. Anyway, without fail, when I see a speechlessly gorgeous item, something that really speaks to me, well, lo & behold, 95% of the time the pattern is not available unless you try and track dow

    @Granny Square. And that is why I read all reviews on ravelry, as well as "Comments" in the upper right hand corner. However, sometimes there are no reviews whatsoever for a seemingly lovely garment. No photos, nothing. If this were for an item just recently designed, that is understandable, but sometimes the pattern has been on ravelry for years and it is still available (sometimes paid, sometimes free). What the hey...sometimes a shawl or other item will have 150 Projects (people who made the item) and other times...nothing. OTOH, I don't understand ravelry at all - their cultur

    No kidding. But there is a difference between un-conventionally written and plain-old badly written. There was no excuse for the above. What - are we supposed to be mind readers? Feh. I don't think I am exaggerating when I say that there are more than a few crochet patterns that are utterly incomprehensible. We shouldn't have to muddle our way through, trying this, then trying that, then trying something else, all the while ripping out our previous work.
  13. That's a cute little cape. Just the kind of thing I like. It is too bad that we have to buy a book to get the pattern and also too bad that half the patterns are for knitted items. Oh well...
