  1. Hi all! I’m new to this forum... thanks for being here! My name is Leah and I have 20 years. I am making a couple scarves for my friends and I cannot figure out this pattern!! I have tried looking up “block” so many times and I can’t figure it out. I am not supposed to switch colors or anything... I just can’t understand what the block is or how to do it or what this should look like. I would appreciate any help!!! Thank you so much
  2. Hi everybody!! I've just recently learnt how to stitch the basic granny stitch and I'm noticing, as you can see in the pictures, that they slant to the right quite a bit. I'm using acrylic perle with a size 3 hook, was thinking on using a half size smaller one (2.50 size one) but not sure if the problem is really in the hook or what I'm doing wrong. Any ideas that could help with this anyone?

    ten stitch help

    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/
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. A pretty baby play block! http://creativecrochetworkshop.blogspot.com/2014/03/baby-play-block.html Thank You Joanita Happy Crocheting!
  8. 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!
