  1. need help with the beginning corner of the ten stitch crochet(not tunsian) , any instructions. youtube only has knittined and tunisan http://www.lookatwhatimade.net/crafts/yarn/crochet/free-crochet-patterns/ten-stitch-blanket-crochet-pattern/
  2. I crocheted a plain, tam-style, garter stitch beret. Despite not working a tight gauge, it is too small. I think the pattern maker just has a small head. I followed the pretty basic pattern from this video -https://youtu.be/8myaqOkCP3s, and used a size G hook and worsted weight yarn. Should I: A) Attempt to wet block it to a larger size (it's alpaca), B) Rip out the brim and decrease rows then ad lib more increase rows and modify the decrease, or C) Rip it out entirely and use a different pattern? This is my first basic crochet project. Usually I make decorative lace stuff when I crochet, or I knit. While I frequently make or alter patterns when knitting, I'm not that experienced with crochet yet. I'm just not sure what the best option here is. Thoughts?
  3. This is my post stitch peace sign square...it is crocheted with a variety of post stitches on a sc foundation. Some experience with post stitches is helpful as this is an intermediate/advanced pattern. It can be crocheted in one solid color, or contrasting colors as shown. Note: this pattern assumes that you are already familiar with color changing techniques. Thanks for looking! The pattern is available for purchase here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/post-stitch-peace-sign-square
  4. This is my polka dot heart square. It's crocheted using a variety of post stitches and bobbles on a sc background. This is an intermediate pattern that can be crocheted using one solid color, or contrasting colors as shown. Note: this pattern assumes that you are already familiar with color changing techniques. Pattern can be purchased here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/polka-dot-heart-square Thanks for looking!
  5. A pretty baby play block! http://creativecrochetworkshop.blogspot.com/2014/03/baby-play-block.html Thank You Joanita Happy Crocheting!
  6. So I'm working on making a small purse. I have a few rectangle pieces that I will be sewing together with yarn and a yarn needle. The corners are curling a fair amount, so I want to make sure I block them all. My question is, is it better to... A) Sew all the pieces together, then block the entire thing B) Block all the pieces individually, then sew all the pieces together C) Pin the pieces together, block while pinned, and then sew pieces together. Also, if it makes a difference, I'm using Red Heart Value yarn. So the basic and cheap worsted weight yarn made of acrylic. Its a bit rougher and has a little more of a ridged drape then other nicer but more expensive yarns. And while I'm here asking, if you could also tell me what the best method of blocking to use would be, that would be great! Thank you!
