  2. I’m pretty new to crochet and I recently got a book with some awesome afghan patterns in it. The one I chose is Wintertime Warmer (part of the reason I chose it was because it said beginner lol). I’ve gotten up to the 4th row where it then says to “Insert hook into first st of row, pick up dropped lip of MC, ch 3” which I managed to do. The part that im struggling with is as follows “[insert hook into top of next fort and dc directly behind work a dc st, working over ch-1 sp of previous row, dc in next dc], rep across, turn.” Can anybody explain this part of it to a beginner? Than
  3. Hello, It's really nice to meet everyone who shares my passion for crochet! I have been crocheting since I was 9 years old. For the past several years I have considered myself a "binge crocheter." As a single mom and middle school teacher, crochet time has been a luxury. It wasn't until I had been crocheting for 34 years off-and-on that the global pandemic led me to branch out creatively to try new and different crochet stitches, styles, and project types and I realized how much I really enjoy growing my skills, stitch-types, and diversifying the types of projects I tackle. I hav
  4. Has anybody seen the latest catalog featuring “Sidonia” afghan. (Cover and page 9) Patchwork design. Curious if it’s a vintage pattern. Is there a pattern like it out there? eta searched around didn’t find similar. I really like the colors in the kit sooo will order
  5. Hi everyone, I just joined this forum hoping to help my mother in law find what she is looking for. When I met her last Christmas, she told me that she was looking for an Afghan crochet hook in size N, O or P with the length of 15 inches minimum (20 inches is better). I looked everywhere that I can think of and finally found a person on Etsy that makes it in 13 inches long, and he told me that's the longest he can go. So my question is, has anyone seen such a super long Afghan crochet hook? My mother-in-law's 83rd birthday party is coming up in March, and I wanted to surprise her wit
  6. Saw in older crochet magazine. Used two colors. Started with ten chains, cut yarn, return to beginning, sc in first ten increase ten. Can't remember more. Any help?

  8. So I’m pretty new to crochet and I’m attempting to make a blanket for my grandma. I’ve fallen in love with this specific pattern, the only issue is the instructions for the granny squares are pretty vague and hard for me to comprehend. Can anyone give me a hand? I’ve pretty much only gotten so far as a slip stitch on my hook... https://www.michaels.com/caron-simply-soft-on-the-plus-side-afghan-crochet/B_47481.html?productsource=projects
  9. Hello! I am very new to crocheting. I have been a knitter for the last 30 years. My mom has always preferred to crochet. She is going to be 80 soon. After a recent hospitalization, we decided to make a quilt together with my 14yo daughter. After looking for a while, we came upon Ellen Gormley's triangle pattern found here: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/triangles-afghan The pattern calls for 3 colors. However, I found a picture (attached) that shows the same pattern but using 6 colors. The pattern also specifies worsted weight, 5.0mm needle. Both my mom and I have tried to
  10. Hello crochet friends I really love this pattern and its great for using up left over balls of yarn, Looks great in thin or thick stripes Here is the written pattern http://www.bobwilson123.org/afghans--granny-squares.html I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I did making it
  11. I've been working on this afghan for several months and gave it to my daughter on Thanksgiving, she loved it. I found the pattern here https://chaosandchopsuey.wordpress.com/2016/10/31/gilmore-girls-graphgan-cal-starts/
  12. A friend of my daughter's had asked me, she's only 10 , if I would make her baby brother who was 16 months a blanket! She asked for Blue! Well I thought yeah no worries, that's not a problem and I decided to create a letter M in the throw! A little bit of personalisation! I can't share the photo with the little boy, as it's not my own child, but I've been told that he won't let go of it!
  13. 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!
  14. I've done simple ripple afghans in the past but wanted to make a Ripple Baby Afghan that I have from an old book of patterns, New Crochet Basics, 12 Designs for Beginners, by Leisure Arts.1989 The first 2 instructions are as follows: __________________________________________ With CC ch5, join with slip st to form a ring. Rnd 1: Ch3, (YO, insert hook in ring and pull up a loop) twice, YO and draw through all 5 loops on hook, ch 2, *(YO, insert hook in ring and pull up a loop) 3 times, YO and draw through all 7 loops on hook, ch 2; repeat from * 6 times more; join with slip st to
  15. Hi everyone. I have started the Peppermint Throw. If anyone would like to do a CAL with this, I am currently at 12/30 on the small ones and 1/42 on large ones (rounds 1-10). I hope you all will join me!

  16. This one if for my niece. I didn't love the picture, I didn't find it clear enough if that makes sense. But she loved it so I am surprising her for Christmas. I worked like a bunny to get it done in time. Now I really am moving on to Phantom! LOL It's all single crochet and I used an H Hook and Red Heart Supersaver which I love. Once you wash it it becomes super soft.
  17. I know I've seen this before but was looking for ideas about what to do with my carefully curated yarn collection that is taking over my closet and garage. So what is your favorite stashbusting scrap afghan?
  18. 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 anythin
  19. Here is a cute little guy that I made as a test crochet. I love the c2c graphs, they go so much faster. Pattern is available at c2cgraphs.com
  20. Hello, I am looking for tips on how to keep my Afghan folded and easy to work on once it gets long and heavy. The project I am working on is very large, 90 inches wide and about 30 inches long so far. I am having trouble keeping it under control while working. Are there some kind of clips I can use to help keep it folded smaller so it is easier to turn? Thank you!
  21. Hey, all. I'm new to the forums. I found this 'cause I'm trying to find someplace that might be able to help me with reading a pattern I'm having a bit of trouble deciphering. I usually don't have issue with patterns but it's been so long since I used one and I've never done a ripple afghan before. I usually just do "straight" or granny square ones. Anyway, I've got this ripple afghan I'm going to make for my little girl's toddler bed for when it's time to move her from her crib. Just a little something special for her. But for the life of me I can't figure out what this pattern is asking me t

    Afghans

    Hello Crochetville-ers, I belong to a machine embroidery site and one of the women posted a picture of an afghan she had made, I LOVED it! The pattern was called Mile-a-minute and I searched online for patterns and found many..... During my next visit to the states I bought enough yarn to make four afghans for my four children. My son was flabergasted when he paid shipping for a medium sized box (from NY to Jeddah!) that arrived and contained only yarn..... he he My first afghan was finished before I left the states so I sent it to my son in Kuwait. Two more afghan's I've completed. T
  24. I am new to crocheting. I have only been crocheting since January of this year (2016). I started crocheting as a way to keep my mind active and off my oldest being gone and in the Navy and not being home during the day to do things together or on the rare night off, a girls night out! You see, in boot camp, they can't write home for 3 weeks!!! My first project was a baby blanket in c2c to learn stitches and then in March, I jumped into designing and starting this graphgan in April. It is 180 stitches wide and 270 tall. I am using HDC for the red letters and for the blanket in general. I rounde
