  1. Hello, I am a bit new to crochet, and a first time poster. I am reading a pattern from a book called "Woodland Crochet", and the instructions for the shell do not seem to match up with the amount of stitches I think they should produce. I haven't made it past Rnd 1 for the shell, but I made the head and legs of the tortoise without any trouble: " ch 6, start in 2nd ch from hook Rnd 1: sc, 3sc, 3sc in next ch, 3sc, 2sc in next ch" Already, I end up running out of chains to work in; I single crochet 4, then increase by 3 in the 5th chain, and I have no room to increase by 2. I have assumed that sc and 3sc are both normal single crochets since the pattern describes 3sc in the next ch in the same rnd. Sorry if this question is a bit long but I've had no luck trying to figure out this pattern. Thank you!
  2. Hello! I'm new in the crochet world and need some help understanding patterns. Up to now, I have been following video tutorials for beginners with some degree of success. Now I am trying to work with written patterns. Can you explain me what the instruction: Rounds 5-7 (7, 9, 9, 11) means? Up to this round everything was going fine. Thank you for your help.
  3. I have held onto this pattern for a LONG time. After several years- I finally felt confident enough to tackle it. But... I've been stumped on this part for awhile. I thought it may have been a mistake. I have never seen armhole shaping worked into the back by leaving stitches unworked on BOTH sides of the row. This one is written as follows for the back piece: "For the armhole shaping leave 4 sts each side unworked, then leave sts unworked every row as foll: 2 sts 3 times = 61 sts. Work even until piece measures 27"/69 cm from beg. For the shoulder shaping leave sts unworked each side 8 sts 2 times. When piece measures 27 1/2"/70 cm from beg, for the neck shaping leave the center 29 sts unworked and work both sides at once." Full Pattern: https://knitted-patterns.com/knitting-for-women/crochet/jackets/3695-crocheted-jacket-with-lapel How do you you leave stitches unworked on BOTH sides of the row? I know how to leave "remaining" stitches unworked or to work decreases at the beginning & end of the row, but not this. The only way I could think it's possible is to start new yarn for each row, but that would be ridiculous, right? If you know something I don't- any help/advice would be appreciated. (Just an added note: I haven't got there yet, but I also noticed it states to work both sides at once for the shoulders after leaving 29 stitches unworked in the middle. I'm not sure how you would do that either. I'm used to working one side and then reattaching yarn to work the other side.) Thank you in advanced to anyone with ideas! Take Care, AmyNoelle
  4. I am new to all of this. Can someone please explain how the brackets and ** /* ‘s work please? In a step by step way? Thanks.

  6. I have recently returned to crochet are many years away. I want to do a rug. I have a pattern but I am unclear to what it means. It is step 1 on the below attachment. does it mean 8 double stitches or what?
  7. Does anyone recognize this pattern? My grandmother began these years ago before she developed Alzheimer’s. She asked me to please finish this as a tablecloth if she wasn’t able to complete it. I want to honor my grandmother’s wish, but the pattern was not left with the squares. Please help!!!
  8. Hi folks! I am crocheting a pair of socks and am totally stuck at the heel! The pattern is driving me bonkers. Basically, it goes as follows: round 1: extended single crochet (exsc) in each stitch across 24 sts, work in established leg pattern across remaining instep stitches <— this makes no sense to me. There are 6 rounds in the leg pattern so how do I know what the “established leg pattern is”? How am i supposed to work that pattern in 24 remaining stitches? Does this make sense to anyone? I’ve attached pictures. Please help!
  9. Hi all! I have been crocheting for ~8 years but only amigurumis with single crochet, and after Swedish patterns (I am Swede). I decided that now I will try some slight more advanced patterns, even in English, with double crochets. I found this beginner's pattern but I have started over about 4 times already. I don't get it. The pattern can be found here: https://hannicraft.blogspot.com/2013/03/simple-beret-crochet-pattern.html I have attached how my work looks like. I am now working on round 3 and it really does not look like the beret on the photo in the pattern. What I do not get is: The beret on the pattern has 12 sections, they are very clear. They are not seen on my beret.. I simply don't understand why. I have crocheted according to what it says: R3: 3 chain stiches and then make 1 double crochet in the same stich. Then continuing with 1 double crochet in next stich. Then 1 chain. Then 2 double crochets in next stich, then one double crochet in next stich + 1 chain. Repeating that that 11 times starting with the 2 double crochets. My work is all bubbly at the edges. I suppose it's since I am increasing the work, making two double crochets (dc's) in one stich here and there according to the pattern. But when I see the finished beret on the photos, it does not look bubbly at all; it's flat. I have never crocheted like this before, so I do not know if it's normal and will even out when it's finished..? I am using hook 3.5. Also tested with hook 4, no difference. I do not know yarn size, I just found a ball of this yarn at home. Anyone know what's wrong..? Thank you ❤️ - Emelie
  10. This is a free crochet pattern and 2 videos showing how to crochet and assemble the rattle. The pattern is here [link] The videos are here [link]
  11. Hello all! I am not sure if someone can help me, but I hope so! I was asked (practically begged) to crochet a llama (last minute) for my niece got Christmas. How could I say no? So, the pattern I have is a free pattern from Red Heart. As I started I noticed that my counting and what the notes were, were completely different. For instance, row 17 calls for [8sc in next 8 st, 2 sc in next st]6 times-60 sc. The problem is that the math is wrong... 8 + 1 (2sc in ONE st) is 9 (not ten) and 9x6 is 54 not 60. So, do I make sure there is 60 total or do I just do the row pattern 6 times? Can someone please help before it drives me insane? lol Also, I tried contacting Red Heart to no avail. I am including the pattern just in case you need to see it. Thank you so much for any assistance!!! http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LM6195-Llama-No-Drama-Free-Crochet-Pattern.pdf
  12. Hello! I'm trying to crochet my first pair of gloves (I asked my boyfriend what he'd want me to make him for Christmas and he, of course, chose the hardest thing possible). I found this pattern that I love, and so far it's gone well; I've reached the part where I'm supposed to chain a new section to begin making the thumb. This is where I get tripped up, though! The pattern states, "Ch 9 loosely, draw up a loop in 2nd st from hook and in each st of ch; 8 loops, work pat. until there are 22 loops on hook; work off loops. Work on these 22 sts for 2½ ins." My first issue is that when I "draw up a loop" in every stitch of the chain I end up with 9 loops on my hook, not 8. Not a big deal, I figured that's such a small difference I can work with it, it'd be fine. But with the next part, I literally have no idea what it means. How do I get 22 loops out of 8 (or 9)? Am I supposed to draw these off of the hook first, and then increase in that new section until I have 22 loops? It states that I'm supposed to work on these 22 stitches, so obviously that number is important, but it doesn't give me any instruction as to how to do that. My first instinct was to work the loops off of the crochet hook before increasing, but if I do that it makes a foundation that is significantly smaller than what 22 stitches from the get-go would give me. Why wouldn't I just chain 22 or 23 to start? I've looked online to no avail, and there's no way to contact the creator of the pattern that I can find. You can view the full pattern here Men's Afghan Stitch Gloves Pattern. (I figured once I started that "Afghan Stitch" is either another name or a type of Tunisian crochet; correct me if I'm wrong! Also, it might just be me, but the way this pattern is written gives me a headache--it's just the best I could find without having to knit with a set of double pointed knitting needles, and that seemed harder than figuring this type of pattern out). I'm bolding my two questions just because I know I've written a lot, so hopefully it's easier to read. I'm also adding a series of photos to show how I'm interpreting the first portion of the instructions for the thumb. I feel like I don't even know enough to try and guess around until I figure something out! This is my first time working with this type of stitch, and I've loved working in it so far--if I can just figure out what they mean by this one part, I think I should be able to finish this pattern and make a beautiful pair of gloves. Thank you!
  13. Hello, I'm looking to find a pattern for this Cowl. Or at least some idea for that "X" portion.
  14. Hoping somebody can help. I am trying this pattern http://www.yarnspirations.com/on/demandware.static/-/Sites-master-catalog-spinrite/default/dw6d218def/PDF/BRC0202-002792M.pdf I am really confused about the MC instructions, particularly with beg row 3 where the chart comes in. Do I do 2 dc in each stitch, or do I do 1dc in 2 stitches to make the “block”. For the space, do I miss one dc for each space as in row 2, or do I just do ch1 1dc in each stitch? I’m doing something wrong because I cannot keep the right count according to the chart after trying this several ways. Sorry for the probably basic questions. I’ve never used a chart before and it’s a bit confusing to me.
  15. Here is my latest little recycled bag project. It's a Hobo plarn purse crocheted with recycled brown Safeway bags. I used a K crochet hook to work this purse so it's a little smaller than the original Hobo purse pattern. I did one extra row before doing the top narrowing final rounds. Finished size is 9 inches wide by 7-1/2 inches long.
  16. Hi all. I'm very much a beginner when it comes to crochet. I've only done practice things, like a few coasters and a cozy. I wanted to move onto something a little (only a little!) more complex, so I found a pattern on redheart.com for some some simple slippers. Here's the link: http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/WR2031.pdf I was doing fine until row 14. I don't really understand how I'm supposed to end up with 21 stitches when I only chained 14 in the row before. I'm sure I'm missing something. Am I reading the instructions incorrectly? Any help is appreciated. Thanks! Bridgette
  17. Hi, I'm new to crochet and so far so good but now stuck on a pattern step. Say: rounds 8-12 dc all sts (42 sts). Does this mean 42 sts in total or 5x rounds of 42? Picture for ref
  18. I’m using N hook with Homespun Thick & Quick yarn. My problem is that I don’t understand the last bit of round 1 where it says “hdc in top of beginning ch-2 - 4 corner ch-2 space”. It’s tge “4 corner” direction that has me perplexed—what is it asking me to do? I added a picture of the directions. Thanks!

    General help

    Me again! Everyone was so helpful when I was making my bunny that I am back here again to ask for your help :-) im about to start a simple blanket, but the pattern will make a 2.4m x .8m blanket. I’d like it to be square. my question is, as it’s done in single crochet, with a chain of 50 and has just short of 100rows, is it as simple as doubling my chain length to 100 to make the chain length similar to the amount of rows? And if so, do I use double the yarn yardage or only 50% more? Thankyou in advance :-)
  23. Hi, me again! After people were so helpful yesterday on my increased I thought I’d ask about decreases today. pattern reads: *dec, 3dc, repeat from * to end (24sts) so I know I’m decreasing from 30stitches to 24, so a decrease of 6. However, I seem to be decreasing much more rapidly... I have read the pattern as: decrease to start, then 3 stitches, followed by another decrease. But this then decreases the round by 10 and not 6.... what am I doing wrong? Am I doing my actual decrease stitch wrong, or am I doing the decrease too soon? see picture for pattern, I’m on round 21, already completed 20 and despite doing it wrong I think I will leave it as is... thanks for any help guys! Visual is very useful for me :-)
