  1. Hello All, I have been thinking about crocheting doilies, although they look VERY intimidating, I love doilies. I have made a few with regular size yarn and needle (4.0mm or 5.0mm) I would greatly appreciate any info you would like to share about doilies. I'm not sure where to start and have some questions that maybe someone could answer for me: What types and size of needles I should get? There's SOOOO much information on the internet about crochet needles... WOW! Since I don't have a specific pattern chosen, I'm thinking it's probably a good idea to get a "set" of needles; then a
  2. Thank you Granny Square and Brenda for the links to great idea's for a dog sweater and the how-to-measure your pet tutorial. The sweater I just made, I found here: https://make-and-build-dog-stuff.com/dog-sweater-crochet-pattern.html So let say I want to use my dogs measurements for the above pattern. Is it as simple as crocheting to equal the same measurements? such as, if my dog's neck is 10" round, I could chain until the crochet chain = 10" round?

  3. Happy Holiday's to all, This is my first "forum" discussion board (I'm still trying to figuring out how to post things and respond to posts 🤔) Many, many thanks to Granny Square, who answered my questions, on a pattern, for a dog sweater, that I was just not understanding.. I finished the dog sweater but was disappointed that the sweater did not fit as I expected and I followed all the parameters given for the desired size I wanted to make. My questions.... Is it possible to use my dog's measurements for a given pattern that has a calculated # of stitches/rows for a set si
  4. My crochet pattern is a dog sweater. I've been doing crochet for about 3-4 years now but have only done basic blankets, scarf's, dish-clothes, doily's, etc... My question is on how the pattern is written for the 3rd row. (The first row is a chain, 2nd row is dc and FPdc). Row 3 starts with ch 3, turn, dc in next dc, dc across to last st, 2 dc in last dc. What I'm not understanding is after the ch 3 & turn "dc in next dc" ??? Does that mean dc in the space (area between the post's) made from the previous row? OR, do I dc in the next st (on top of the previous dc, as if I'm d
