  1. As my public name suggests, I welcomed my first grandchild in September! I have made some baby afghans, a hat, and a sweater. I'm trying to do an Amigurumi pattern now, and there is an abbreviation that has me puzzled. What does F/O mean? Context: Doing a foot in the round, and by round 17 the stitches have decreased to 6. Then it says "F/O and leave a long tail for closing the 6 stitch opening and attach foot to leg". Same thing for leg: Toward the end, when it's down to 12 sc, it says "F/O the first leg and leave a long enough tail to sew the 2 legs together." Any help greatly appreciated!
  2. I'm totally new to this and am trying my very first project. It took about two weeks, after I went supply shopping to buy everything i need, just to feel comfortable enough to start my project. I have been watching videos, researching, and looking for a good start project. I wanted to make this beautiful multi-colored scarf with dangling roses (as if right?) but when I showed my husband the picture (Im really excited about this) he said "Babe, maybe you should start with something easy. Like a little blanket or something. He is probably right. So i found a cute baby throw pattern that I assume should be easy enough for me to try but when I finally built up the courage to just try and start it, I was dumbfounded while looking at directions!! I have my little Crochet Pocket book on my night stand and my craft tote but dont understand the directions. I know the terms but being brand new to this I need it written in simple english versus abbreviations which is normal crochet lnguage but alien language to me. LOL. If any blessed soul could spare some time to maybe translate my pattern to the long version of instructions, or has any tips for me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance for your time. Below I will post the directions for my pattern. Need translation help: Baby Throw Lion Brand® Hometown USA® Pattern #: L0278B http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L0278B.html Pattern excerpt:
