  1. Do you mean this: Leisure Arts #2826, Birthstone Afghans It is for sell on Amazon for $8.76.
  2. Kelsiebee Hi and Welcome! Could you please start a new thread for your question. That way your answers don't get lost in this one and Miss Dotty's doesn't get lost in your answers. Thank you. Miss Dotty here is a tutorial with photos that might help you. I have used this one before. http://byrobin.blogspot.com/2015/07/vintage-crochet-granny-square-repair.html Here is another one. https://www.ponymctate.com/post/how-to-repair-a-crochet-blanket Good luck! Let us know how it goes.
  3. I found this video with detailed steps. Maybe this one will help.
  4. This one just popped up, it is pretty close. https://****/crochet-sunflower-crop-top-free-pattern/
  5. Hi and welcome to the boards! This is the pattern or very close to it: https://whataboutyarn.wordpress.com/2019/02/17/chain-of-hearts-keychain/ Here is her youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XlJ0pywsNQ To make the sides have less of a gap, I'd try chain 2 instead of 3 on the one side. On the other, I'd half double crochet instead of double crochet. See how that works. In the photo you posted, they single crocheted round both side to make it look neat. Hope that helps. Be sure to come back and post pictures of your finished work.

  8. Do you mean like this one: https://www.yarnspirations.com/lily-sugarn-cream-sunshine-scrubby/SCC0537-006313M.html#q=Sunshine+Scrubby+&includeContent=true&start=2 There is also one in this pattern book.

  9. I have never steam blocked acrylic but I know a lot of people do. I've seen it mostly for sweaters and shawls; that type of thing that needs more of a drape. From what I understand, done right steaming softens the yarn, it won't be stiffer. Personally I would not steam the shoes. You would loose all 'stiffness' that you have. If you have extra yarn, you could do a swatch and steam that to see what happens so you understand better. Remember the baby's foot will be in them and the shoes should have whatever problem you think it is having now. I think they will be fine. They are ve
  10. You got some good advice. I went ahead and searched Ralvelry and found 3 pages of halter dresses. Some are for children. Some are no longer available. There are a few with links to etsy or to buy through Ralvery that might fit what you are looking for. You have to be a member to look and to buy through them but it is free to join. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#craft=crochet&query=halter dress&sort=best&view=captioned_thumbs Good luck!
  11. I have only made one very simple graphs afghan so I am not an expert. Looking at your link, those graphs are heavily detailed and I feel would not make a good c2c (corner to corner) or bobble afghan. I think the back and forth would look better. It will be tedious and time consuming for me. No biggie if that is your thing. However I did find these. Both are cutesy patterns, if that is okay. Both these patterns contain links to more help on the c2c. This is a fairly simple c2c Harry Potter afghan with several squares you join. No Malfoy though: https://yarngeekery.com/
  12. I think this cowl might be the stitch: https://oombawkadesigncrochet.com/2020/07/agnes-infinity-cowl-pattern.html All searches take me to her website but I can't find the square/rectangle afghan. Finally found it on her instagram as sneak peek of a new angel. Maybe the cowl pattern will get you started. There is a slouch beanie that goes with it. https://oombawkadesigncrochet.com/2020/07/agnes-slouch-hat-pattern.html Her website is a bit ad filled. Sorry. Hope those help some.
  13. Hello and welcome! Congratulations on your new grandbaby! That is really just a solid granny square that is two colors on the diagonal or triangles. If you can make grannies, you can make this. Here is a basic solid granny pattern: https://www.angelfire.com/mi/givinghands/simplesolid.html Here is how to make the two colored granny. You would make it the same except solid: https://theunraveledmitten.com/2017/06/17/crochet-half-square-triangle/ If you prefer videos, here is one: For color placement, just pick your four colors and follow the

  15. I think this is the bunny she is looking for: https://www.knittingparadise.com/t-668484-1.html It is really cute. This is the woman on Ravelry who made it (same woman on the knitting site): https://www.ravelry.com/people/linnypin This the pattern she based it on, it is her own pattern: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/granny-square-bear This is her on the knitting site: https://www.knittingparadise.com/user-topic-list?usernum=79605 You can either try to make it from the bear pattern, try to make it from the photo, or contact her through one
  16. I found these two that might work. I really like the second one. https://www.kristinomdahl.com/whats-new/2016/8/11/how-to-crochet-straps-on-a-tank-top https://www.kristinomdahl.com/whats-new/2016/8/12/how-to-crochet-on-tank-top-straps-version-2?rq=version 2 If you don't like those, look for crocheted tank tops and maybe you'll find a strap you like. Here is the search for free tops at Ravelry which you have to join but it is free. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#craft=crochet&availability=free&query=tank top&sort=best&view=captioned_thumbs
  17. Was it the Zingy Zig-Zag afghan, found in this booklet: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sources/leisure-arts-3819-scrap-afghans-for-all Here is a similar afghan with link to her pattern and a link to you tube instruction: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/scrappy-stripes-afghan Hope that helps.
  18. Thanks ReniC, I knew it was something else but my brain just wasn't working the other day. LOL
  19. Hi and welcome! I'm pretty sure this has several different names. The one that came to mind though is The Wool Eater: https://sarahlondon.wordpress.com/2009/08/25/wool-eater-instructions/ I hope you come bake and post a photo of your finished blanket.
  20. I agree with Granny Square that using press brads would be more difficult in changing things out than it is worth. How about brads? They come in all colors and used to come in shapes in the scrapbook section. Would be almost the same as using buttons but no worries about making holes or lining up. Hope that helps.
  21. I'm sorry. I forgot you did say you saw a tutorial somewhere.
  22. Granny Square, I made a couple of them a year or two ago. Fairly easy and nice looking. Flia, where did you see it? Is there a picture you can link to? Romanian cord is worked in the round which is why I thought it might be the one.
  23. I think maybe you are looking for Romanian Cord: Hope that helps.
  24. Yup, Corner to Corner or C2C. Very easy to make and lots of patterns out there. Good luck!
  25. Here are some from Ravelry. You have to join to see some, buy/download. It is free to join.
