  1. Thanks for the response Granny Square. I hear what you are saying about the rows. This pattern was from the Crochet Magazine Summer 2019 issue. I have made three projects from this magazine and all three patterns have needed alterations/corrections. A little frustrating for a novice, ... so I will try to explain my changes. The First Panel incorrectly said to repeat Rows 7 & 8. Actually, I believe, that you should repeat rows 8 & 9. [This came to pass after ripping many rows out, etc.] So, the directions say to end with Row 7, my Row 8 for the first panel. For the Second Panel, you also end with Row 8. I believe that they want Row 9 to be the row that connects the two. Row 9 is the one that has the three “bumps” in it. I will attach the original directions for you to see Row 9 vs. Row 39 (connecting row) * Note: I added rows on each side of the panels because I wanted a longer runner. The original pattern will only result in a 36” long runner, but I still ended on Row 8. I made a separate check list so that I would not make a mistake. Sorry that this is so long. After all of that it seems easier to end the second panel with Row 9 and then just “sew” them together. If you can understand all that I have here and then could explain HOW to attach, I would greatly appreciate it. Krys, It seems that the first 7 rows would be hard to decrease because of the special stitch fdc (foundation double crochet)
  2. Granny Square, What is errata?

  5. I am trying to join two crocheted panels together to make a table runner but it doesn’t look right or sound correct. Any insights? Attached are the directions and a pic. Thank you.

    Colors

    Crochet Queen, Nice sweater! I went to the link you shared. My questions are: Who is this sweater for? What will the base/front color be? Blue/purple? Or some other color? If you are using a neutral, tan, white or grey for the main sweater these other combinations would go well. For a contrast try the complimentary color to blue (orange) as an accent, or purple (yellow) as an accent, but you could also add in green. There is a lot of movement with the design of these squares. Probably the reason the entire sweater is not done in them. If this sweater is going to be fun then mix it up. Use purple, yellow, (yellow-orange), green, etc. If you want something more subtle then let the design be the “texture” and keep various shades of purple, or blue for your squares. Angela
  7. I bet Tampa Doll. They are a very cute pattern. I think that it might be a great idea to have a few pairs made ahead for future baby showers. I am thrilled to be done with them, for now.
  8. So, I finally finished the slippers. I needed to decrease Rnd 10 to 29 sts and Rnd 11 to 26 sts to get a smaller opening for the 1-2 years old size. I also added leather to the bottoms to prevent slipping. Not sure if I will add the tassels.
  9. Didn’t see everyone else’s welcome. Thanks. It has been a blessing to find others who will share their expertise. Angela
  10. Thanks for the welcome Nicola.
  11. Thanks for the help. I am hoping to find a sweater for a two-year old, maybe I didn’t explain it. Correctly. I will look at the link though and see if I can work it out. I have done a bit of sewing for adults and children and do understand that the proportions change. For kids, though, I though the main difference would be that their arms would get longer; not as much change in the girth. And their torso would lengthen, and maybe widen a little. Hmm. The pattern may pose some more challenge but I really like it. Maybe it is out there in a smaller size. If I find it I will share or maybe I will do the math. Yuk!
  12. Back again. I found a lovely free sweater pattern at Hobby Lobby. It is made for size (4): 14-1/2” long x 16-1/2” at the bottom; laying flat. I am assuming that this means the pattern is for a children’s size 4 and I would like to make this for a size (2) of 2T, if they are the same thing. A two year old. Do I just cut the number of stitches in half? Or is there some mathematical formula that will determine this 2T size? Thanks in advance for any help. Angela
  13. Thanks. I brought this slipper to church this morning to show the “girls”. They agreed with you, the opening is too large. I am making this for my granddaughter who will be 1 year old in January. She is just starting to pull herself up and will begin walking soon, I am sure. I think that I will decrease Rnd 10 by 6 sts and Rnd 11 by 6 sts, so my opening on top will be 23 stitches instead of 35 sts. Has anyone else made this pattern? Angela
  14. I have been trying to figure out this pattern for the Llama Baby slippers in the Crochet Magazine [Summer 2019] I believe that I followed all of the pattern correctly, double-checking stitch counts after each row. The top (opening) looks too big. I am working on the 1-2 year old size. In Rnd 9 it says that I should have 35 sts and then a few more rows to complete.I feel like I should pinch the front before I attach the face. Won’t the baby’s feet slip out while walking in these? Use a draw string at the top? Also, the applique’s: just attach them with a tapestry or yarn needle? No placement diagram. Has anybody made these? Help! Angela
  15. Hi Everyone! A little about me...I have been working on different projects since I was 8 years old. I started sewing clothes and some crochet then. I also have tried stamping, knitting, photo albums, origami, and Interior Design & Kitchen Design As I got older I found counted cross stitch. Cross Stitch would be my go-to leisure activity. I also enjoy talking with my four grandchildren who are scattered around the States. I have started to crochet again this year for Christmas gifts. I am not sure how long my hands will hold up but I am having fun. Glad to be part of this forum. Angela
