  1. My best friend just had her second daughter and I wanted to make a baby blanket for her. I went to the store and saw this beautiful lionbrand #6 bulky yarn that I wanted to use. I then proceeded to YouTube bulky baby blankets and followed the pattern but my blanket is stating out very wavy even after I have crocheted 3/4 rows. I have started over three times trying to tweek the pattern to stop the wavyness but adding links/ really making my links loose/tightening links ect. But nothing helps...i need advice on what I need to do please.
  2. Hello all! I've been crocheting for just over 2 years now and my focus has been mainly on blankets. I've recently started doing block letters as the focal point of the blankets (names, phrases, etc). The person I had doing my grids is no longer available & I have been searching the internet for an easy solution for DIY but I've not been successful. I'll admit I'm not the greatest at math equations when it comes to formulas for increasing the size of things. Does anyone here know of a good site for this? For example, I have a sample of grid letters that are 16x11 which would equate to the letter being 16 rows tall & 11 stitches wide. However, I need the letters to be at minimum 42 rows tall (& then however many stitches wide to make it look like whatever letter I'm creating... again, I'm not a math wiz lol) The grid maker I had was great because I could give her any word, tell her how big I wanted to make the blanket & she would email me a file which had the word on a grid. I called it a "paint by number" for crocheting because I could just count how many stitches to do of each color yarn on any given row & the results were spectacular. (Example attached) Surely someone here can point me in the right direction
  3. In a croche facebook group, which I am part of, I saw this beautiful blanket for baby, I found an excellent gift to make and give to a newborn. I'll leave the link here for you to see how beautiful it is. https://br.pinterest.com/pin/723320390123983006/
  4. One night last month, a good friend, who is also my neighbour seen something and tagged me in it and asked me to give it a try! So I bought the yarn to make the project and matched the yarn colours up as close the ones in the photo! I had made 20 skulls, and put a granny square border around them to make the squares.. In the photo, the blanket, had looked like the squares were all sewn together, but I find personally crocheting them together is a lot neater and tidier! See the photos for the finished product and it was finally nice to have someone appreciate my work, she loves it! P.S this was my first time I'd ever crocheted a skull, or managed to crochet them into squares! So used to just making granny solid squares!
  5. I was asked to make this pattern for a queen size bed. She sent me the first picture and I found the second picture for a pattern. I don't know how large the blanket is in the first picture and I have a little experience using these kind of patterns. Anyway, I think I heard somewhere that if I want to make it bigger I should just double or triple each square, so each square represents 2-3 stitches instead of 1. Does this logic make sense? Would this help make this pattern bigger? Do you think I need to make it bigger? To me this pattern looks like it would maybe for a throw blanket, maybe a little too small for a queen. Thoughts? Please let me know if I can clarify anything.
  6. Hi, I'm preparing for my upcoming vacation. Would like to pack light, so I'm thinking of crocheting a blanket that uses those multi-color yarn. any blanket patterns out there that will look nice on these multicolour yarn?
  7. Hello all, I am very new to crocheting and have only made small pieces so far like coasters, an ear warmer and mug coozies. I am getting ready to make a blanket for my mom and was wondering if the size of the hook and size of the yarn matter too much with a simple pattern? I got super bulky yarn and I think the pattern I liked said to use a 6mm hook with bulky yarn. ALSO, do you count your turning chains as stitches? I've read some people do and others don't. Any tips on which is better and why? Thanks so much!!
  8. I recently discovered the V Stitch and created a few projects using the stitch. I have a scarf and blanket pattern that I can share here. I do my stitch a bit different than some people as I crochet without a chain stitch between V's. Here is a scarf and lapghan I did.
  9. Here is my lapghan blanket I crocheted using the Lumberjack Flannelghan pattern by RedRose. I modified it to make a smaller blanket. My finished lapghan is 35" x 36" with the border. Here is more details on my mods for the pattern if anyone needs them for a smaller blanket.
  10. Please can I ask is it better to wash a baby blanket? I'm not sure whether to wash the blanket on completion before giving it as a present.

  13. This project began it's life as my 2015 North Carolina State Fair project. Without going into all the sad details, I did not finish it in 2015. I cried for about 15 minutes when I realized it wasn't going to happen, and then I dried my tears and went out to dinner with my husband and son and rechristened the project my 2016 North Carolina State Fair project. Now I am 26 days out from the deadline with more work than I would like to have left to do, but it is looking -- as long as I don't get sick or break anything and as long as every one in my family doesn't get sick or break anything -- like I will probably finish in time for the high noon deadline of October 10. But I don't like the whole probably aspect of it. Here is where I am with the project as of September 13, and here is one of the motifs:
  14. This is a chunky blanket that I made and posted how (free pattern) on my blog: http://www.mamainastitch.com/chunky-icelandic-crochet-blanket-pattern/
  15. Hey guys, So my cousins girlfriend is pregnant and I want to make a blanket for their baby. It will say "Noah" which will be his name when he is born. I have drafted out the name for how I want it to look and I've come up with 2 designs I like. One will have to be 17 squares long to fit the name and the other will have to be 21 but I don't know how many squares I will need to have a decent amount of squares surrounding the name and what size I should do each square. After all it's a blanket for a baby that I hope he can keep for a few years. What size for the blanket would you recommend? Ideally I would like 3-4 squares either side of the name so I don't want the name massive ???? I will attach a picture so you can see the 2 if that helps Thank you ❤️
  16. My nephew loves sharks so I came up with this great white shark blanket for him. I wanted to make it detailed because he would pay attention to that. He just got it in the mail and has been pretending to eat his sister in her mermaid tail hehe:) Aunt spoiling mission - Complete !
  17. This pattern is for a great white shark blanket, in the cocoon style, that will fit most kids. The finished size ends up being about 4 1/2 feet from the tip of the nose to the end of the tail. This project is worked mostly in single crochet, involves sewing pieces together with a whip stitch and does take some time to complete it but it is worth the effort in the end because you get a detailed, more realistic looking shark. The pattern is written in American english terms and comes with a second document that includes a photo guide. The photo guide is not a step by step photo tutorial but it does include lots of pictures that show how each piece should progress throughout the pattern, what the finished pieces look like and how they should be assembled. I suggest buying 27 oz of the grey yarn, 20 oz of the white, and a small amount of burgundy. If you have any questions about the pattern, please contact me and I will be happy to help. ​The pattern is available for purchase at: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/great-white-shark-blanket
  18. Finished this yesterday... All the info is on my blog HERE.
  19. Hello, I'm new to this community and am seeking some help. I discovered a wonderful afghan on a favorite show of mine. I would love to crochet it very badly but can't find a yarn that's similar enough to the colors that I need. The pattern I can figure out (unless anyone has any ideas on that as well) I've posted a cropped picture of the afghan. I'm sorry that it's a little blurry but you can get still see the colors. I would like to find something as close as possible because all put together it's perfect for me. Thanks!!!!
  20. We have three gorgeous ripple throws! They are the subject of our 3 Colorful Ways post for April. LW4810 Radiating Ripple Throw in Red Heart Super Saver yarn LW5208 6-Color Radiating Ripple Throw in Red Heart Classic yarn LW5220 5-Color Radiating Ripple Throw in Red Heart With Love yarn
  21. YAY! ​I finally finished my first blanket. The yarn is harvest so I'm not sure why the photos are coming out so pink. It's more orange and moss/dark green. Both with and without the flash look wrong. lol... Anyway, the hubby has claimed this as HIS blanket! It's really soft and plush and I made it almost as tall as him so he can snuggle in it. It feels weird to complete a longer project. I don't know what to do with myself now. I need to work on some foundations that don't involve chains. I don't really like to work in a chain to start projects and I think that's why the granny square has been a favorite stitch of mine. (not that I know a lot of stiches yet)
  22. Hi there! So a while back I attempted to make some children's gloves Halloween-themed [as it was mid-October] just to try my hand at graphing, and I've also been interested in doing a graph-gan or two [if I ever get this granny-square blanket done]. However, I'm curious on something. What I noticed when attempting the gloves was that anywhere I was constantly switching colors, the gloves were thicker since I was carrying the yarn. But I disliked carrying the yarn as well because I was using orange and black, and the carried yarn liked to show up underneath. So what I wanted to ask was: for graph crochet, is it better to carry colors or to not carry colors? Which do you prefer, and which tends to be easier? Is there even a way to do a graph-gan without carrying colors, and if so, how? Thank you for all of the wonderful help! -Sammie
  23. I've made three large afghans over the last few years. For this one, I've made a video detailing the whole process from receiving the package of yarn, the process of deciding on a design and details of how much yarn I used. Here's the video: https://youtu.be/LwCotF3gtOc
  24. I made these blankets, bibs and burp clothes for a new grandbaby.
  25. Hi, I'm very new to crochet and couldn't figure out these instructions after googling. Does this mean 1 double crochet, chain 1, 1 double crochet all in the 5th chain from hook? Do I finish the double crochet, then chain 1 in the 5th chain from hook, then double crochet again in the 5th chain from hook? Thanks! 1st row: (1 dc. Ch 1. 1 dc) in 5th ch from hook (counts as dc. Skip 2 ch). *Skip next 2 ch. (1 dc. Ch 1. 1 dc) in next ch. Rep from * to last 3 ch. Skip next 2 ch. 1 dc in last ch. Turn
