  1. Definitely will be trying this one too!! Thanks
  2. I'm in Australia but I just had a look for Red Heart Super Saver and there are plenty of seller online selling it here. And thanks so much for the ideas! I love the octopus and the little dog! Will go for those first. The bear and the bunny are adorable too but they seem to be a bit more complex - might leave those for later. Thanks again for all the help!!
  3. Thanks a lot! I just bookmarked the Planet June page. I know what I'll be doing on the weekend while still being locked up in the house
  4. Thanks a lot for your response. I'll have a look for a tutorial on this. And agreed, working with this yarn seems pretty challenging! I'll give up on the frog for now and will do some more practicing and then start on some very simple small patterns.
  5. I had no idea there is a difference between UK and US terminology... This is crushing! I didn't have any other yarn to practice on, so I kept on going yesterday using dc UK style (see attached). Tbh, not too sure about the difference between working in circles and rows. I just kept on going around. I think I'll give up on the frog and focus on something easier (can you recommend any very basic and small toy patterns?). Def will have a look at the magic circle.
  6. I may practice on some other yarn before I get back to this one. But thanks a lot - at least I understand the basics now. I bought the pattern and yarn as a complete set at Spotlight. It' supposed to be a frog (but mine probably will be a ball with eyes :))
  7. Thanks so much for the quick reply and the tips. This all makes sense but for some reason it still does not work for me. I must have done the first row 30 times but it just looks wrong (see pic) And yes, sorry I didn't add the second row. It's 2dc in each st around (12sts) I just assumed that means that I do 2 double crochets in each of the 6 new stitches. Though that's easier said than done given that I have trouble seeing where the stitches exactly are.
  8. Hi all - I just started my first crochet project and i am already failing. I must have started all over at least 20 times by now :( The initial instructions are as follows: Make an adjustable slip know and 2ch. Row 1: 6dc in the second ch from the hook (does this mean that I have to make 6 double crochet in the same stitch, i.e. the second one or the first one I made or do I make on in the second stitch and then 5 more in each of the newly created ones as I go along?) Row 3: 1dc, 2dc in the next st 6 times (18 stitches) (just confirming here that this requires me to make one double crochet in the first stitch, then two double crochet in the second stitch [twice in the same], and then I repeat this five more times These are probably really stupid question but looking at what I've done so far, I'm clearly doing something wrong. Many thanks in advance! Heike
