  1. Ok thank you so much! This was all super helpful will definitely get the Woolike yarn from Michaels this friday! Since it's so affordable probably will get 4-5 skeins of it and can use the leftovers for something else 😝 Thank you again for all your help! πŸ’•
  2. Omg thank you so much for the suggestions and being very precise it was really helpful! I am from the US so i'll definitely hit up Michaels to get the "Woolike" yarn. Also sorry i didn't realize i needed to put the weight and yardage for the discontinued yarn. Bucilla Tempo yarn weight according to Ralvery is 56 grams (1.98 ounces) and it is 180 yards! I don't know if that makes a difference or not but hopefully the "Woolike" yarn from Michaels is still good to use because it is right up my price alley πŸ˜‚
  3. Hello! I bought this pattern from etsy it is a vintage vertical striped button down cardigan and the yarn asked is Bucilla Tempo yarn the problem is that the yarn is discontinued. All the pattern tells me is that Bucilla Tempo yarn is 1 3/4 oz. (50gr) skein requires 350 (400-450) grs, and the gauge is 7sts= 1in 3sc rows and 2dc rows = 1 1/8in and I know it's 100% acrylic and the fingering(14 wpi). I don't know if that was any help or not but I got the measurements from the pattern and from ravelry but I was wondering if anyone would help me to find a yarn substitution! I am not the best at figuring that out on my own so any suggestion would be appreciated! πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

    wow thank you guys sooo much for all your help! And you are right @greyhoundgrandma this pattern does need a little bit more explanation or at least a video but it thats just might be me πŸ˜… I am not the best when it comes to reading patterns or diagrams like that but i will say they were super easy to understand and follow so thank you for that! πŸ˜„ I am going to put this pattern to the side for now I am still confuzzled about the size so i might get a thicker yarn and start all over with all the tips you all have given me and hopefully i can get this pattern right! Thank you again! πŸ’–πŸ’– Edit: so I finally got a hold of the pattern creator and I am supposed to be doubling my yarn πŸ™ƒ I had no idea that was what i was supposed to do nor do i know how to do that as for the extra stitch and not getting to 100 she said to do an increase which I did but again when i got to rnd 16 still ended up with less stitches Again thank you for your help i am going to take it all apart now πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ˜…

    So this is the definition for a mixed cluster from the pattern: Mixed Cluster - yarn over, insert hook into indicated stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops, skip next stitch, (yarn over, insert hook into next st, pull up a loop to 1 cm height) twice in same stitch; yarn over & pull through all loops on hook at once. Begin the next Mixed Cluster in the same stitch as the previous cluster ended. I also used this video featured on this website for help it’s for a different pattern but they used Mixed Cluster. She did end hers differently but I don’t know if that’s cause she is working in rows and not rounds… https://daisyfarmcrafts.com/mixed-cluster-baby-blanket/

    Hello thank you both for replying! I probably should have put what that meant sorry MCL is a Mixed Cluster stitch. Unfortunately the pattern wasn't free but i'll post a link to Raverly where i got it so you can hopefully see what i am doing: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/organised-project-basket I also should have mentioned that I am working in the round. I will copy and paste where I am at though in the pattern: "Your basket base is complete, and you will now begin to crochet up the basket sides. Don’t turn your work, just start working up the side of your basket. For the next round you will be working into the 3rd loop of the hdc. Rnd 12 - ch 2, *hdc in 3rd loop of each st; rep from * around, making 2 hdc in last st, join with slst to first st. < 100 hdc > In next round, don’t pull ch 1 between each MCL too tight. After making your initial MCL, begin each subsequent MCL in the same stitch as you finished the previous cluster. Rnd 13 - ch 2, *MCL, ch 1; rep from * around, placing stitch marker in top of first MCL, join with slst to marked top of first MCL. < 50 MCL, 50 ch-1 sps > Rnd 14 - ch 1, *sc in top of MCL, sc in ch-1 sp; rep from * around, PLT to back of first st, instead of joining with slst. < 100 sc > Rnd 15 - ch 2, hdc in BLO of same st, & each st around, join with slst in first hdc. < 100 hdc > Rnds 16 - 18 repeat Rnds 13 - 15" So I am at round 16 however I started having problems at round 13. As for Yarn the pattern creator used Fibra Natura Luxor for her basket however she put in other suitable yarn substitutes which is what I am using which is the Yarn and Colors Must Have Cotton Edit: thought I had a picture of what I have so far hopefully this will help with the size

    Hello all need help! I am working on a pattern to make an organized crochet basket, now everything was going good until i started working on the sides. I have to do a total of 100 MCL however when I count at the end I have 99 stitches. I am not going to lie i kept on going (I somehow had an extra stitch at the end and did an increase to help me get to 100 which did not work hence why i have 99) and now back to another row of MCL. Since i had 99 stitches (even with the increase) the stitch count went down again! I am now at 96 stitches. I have no idea what is happening. I know i messed up before and doing the increase wasn't correct but I was frustrated since I redid that round 5 time (seriously i did it 5 timesπŸ˜…)I just gave up and wanted to keep going. I want to obviously do this right however I am so confused. I was hoping someone can help explain as to what i am doing wrong. Another problem i am having with this pattern (πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ) is that it asks for 4 skeins of yarn but I am still on one and i am on rnd 16 out of 33 and it is super small! I finished the bottom of the basket and now on the sides like i mentioned before and I don't think I am going to use all 4 maybe 2 but not four and I am using recommended yarn from the pattern and the correct hook size. So also need help there as to what I am doing wrong if i am doing something wrong πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ the pattern says by the end it should be: Diameter: 20 cm (7 3/4 in) Height: 9 cm (3 1/2 in) As you can see I am struggling definitely above my skill level but i thought it was cute and fun to make and so far was doing good when I was working in the round to make the bottom it wasn't until i got to the sides where everything went downhill. I don't want to give up I am so far already but i am getting so frustrated. Please help if you can! Thank You! πŸ’–
  8. Hello it's nice to meet everyone! My name is Jordyn I am 22 years old and I love to crochet! I would say, though, that I am still a beginner I learned when I was in elementary school during summer camp and then learned some more basics from my grandmother, however being an elementary schooler i quickly lost interest πŸ˜…Throughout the years i would pick it back up but again lost interest. It honestly wasn't until the pandemic started was when I got back into crocheting and really started making stuff and since then haven't put my hook down! So far I have made shirts. amigurumi, and throw pillows and hopefully will finally start working on a blanket soon! I am loving and enjoying crocheting and I am going to try and pick up knitting next! I just love making new things and buying yarn and patterns I really wish I would have continued with crocheting when I was younger but hey better late than never! 😁 Well that's all from me! Super excited to ask experienced crocheters for help and advice and just being able to talk about crocheting! πŸ˜„πŸ’–
