  1. I’ve been trying to make a baby pixie bonnet using tutorials from YouTube and a pattern I bought. I’ve finally managed to make it quite cute but it kind of rides up the back of my baby’s head once it’s tied. The pattern is essentially a rectangle of dcs folded in half and slip stitched together. Super simple. I was thinking that it might hug the base of her skull better if it gently sloped upwards. I’m thinking that adding some decreases to make the rectangle more narrow at the end might do it but not sure. Any advice?
  2. I came across this shawl a couple of times on youtube, and can't find it in history. I think it's a half-circle, or 5-pointed "segment" type shawl. Anyway, each segment has a run of double crochets which increase with each row. The difference is that you don't place your new row of DC's directly into the previous row's DC's, but place them in-between the previous row's DC's instead, something I've rarely seen done before. Has anyone seen/done a pattern like this? The effect was really interesting and unusual. Thanks to everyone in advance. Pup
  3. Iam very much a beginner in crochet and determined to teach myself. I have picked up a pattern that said it is ideal for beginners which is a cute reindeer head. I have to make a magic ring which I have looked up and think I understand, I have to work 6dc into the ring. But what confuses me is that the instructions read as follows; Rnds 1-2 2dc in each stitch to end 24 sts I understand dc is double crochet but what is the 2dc? Grateful for any help
  4. Well it has taken a lot of You Tube and a lot of starting and stopping but I got to do a magic ring, crochet 6 stitches and closed the ring ok! What I would like to know is that my pattern says crochet 2dc in each stitch. I find this really difficult, I cant seem to find the stitch again (maybe it's too tight?). Is it really necessary to crochet in dc as I find, at the moment I can manage single easier!! I am just working on a test piece before I start the actual toy.
  5. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone can help me, my lapghan is a chevron stitch, 160 and 10 peaks, I do it in 7's and I am at the end of a row and it comes up short by one, I redo and start one chain over and it ends in 8 what am I doing wrong!
  6. Hi! I'm a very new crocheter and I love it so far! But, I'm startibg on a hat project and I don't exactly understand what the pattern wants me to do. It has me start by chaining 3 and then it says "11dc in 3rd check from hook" I was just confused as to how I would do 11 double crochets on my tiny little chain. Do I turn and keep stacking them on top of each other? I've never done a double crochets before this and it seems simple enough and I can do the first one but I don't know where to put the other 10 that I need. Thank you!
  7. Hi everyone! This is probably a really silly question but im still quite a novice at this. So I have made a lacy flower square and I want to now crochet it into a big granny square, So I went round the lacyflower with a row of double crochet stitches (US terms) and now I cant figure out how to start turning it into a granny square pattern.... I hope that makes sense? Thanks!

    Afghan Help!

    I am starting an afghan as a beginner, and in the first row after the foundation chain, the pattern reads: Row 1 (Right side): Dc in sixth ch from hook (5 skipped chs count as first dc plus ch 2) and in next 2 chs, * YO, insert hook in next ch, YO and pull up a loop, YO and draw through 2 loops on hook, YO, skip next 3 chs, insert hook in next ch, YO and pull up a loop, YO and draw through all 3 loops on hook, dc in next 3 chs, ch 2, dc in next ch, ch 2, dc in next 3 dc... That last step is where I get completely lost! How do I dc in the foundation chain? I don't have any dc in rows below because there aren't any previous rows! Help!
  9. What does this mean: "Chain 3 double crochet in single crochet directly below." I get the chain 3 but, is this just another way of saying "double crochet in the same stitch?"
  10. Well after making my wedding bouquet for my wedding in March 2015, our three year old son asked me to make him a bright green blanket. Now I'm not very good at straight lines in crochet let alone straight lines on paper lol, so I opted for a granny square throw. It consists of 63 squares (7x9) Each square has 6 rounds in it! I finished off with a double crochet border to make it more square. I have attached a few photos, one is off the blanket up close and personal, one is one with my son asleep with it on top of him, He went to sleep while I was finishing the border on the blanket and then woke up to it. I thought I would surprise him. However I woke up to being kissed and cuddled in appreciation for his blanket that I made him. So I managed to get a photo of him with it. I hope you like it! It's been a long time since I worked on a big project that I could post on here! I hope you like it! My next project I want to do and it will be my first attempt at making one, is a pillow!
  11. Good morning, I am new to crocheting and I am having a problem with keeping the turning chain straight. My project is a baby car seat blanket. It is a double crochet stitch edging, with a cross double crochet stitch pattern from one of the popular pattern books. In the picture of the finished piece, it is square and the very edge stitch/turning chain is as straight as the other stitches. My row end stitch, dbl ch st, is straight like it's supposed to be, but my turning chain is bent, which gives the piece a scalloped looking edge. How do I keep that turning chain straight? I appreciate your talent and help. Vicki
  12. I wrote a new blog post about a common problem that many crocheters have. You are in the yarn store and see so many goodies, including regular yarn and novelty yarns. You find the most beautiful colorful, fun, crazy looking novelty yarn and purchase it. When you get home, you realize there is no crochet hook recommendation and you immediately think "How am I going to crochet this?" For those of you who have experienced this problem, I wrote a tutorial blog post for you. In my post, How to Crochet Novelty Yarns with the Alternate Double Crochet Stitch, you can learn how to crochet any yarn mush faster and less painfully. Hope you check out my new post, feel free to comment with your discussion!
  13. I happened across a video just tonight that showed a double crochet stitch. I thought that I've been making DCs for an afghan I'm working on, but apperently not. What I've been doing is yo, draw up a loop, yo, pull through 2 loops, yo, pull through 2. And what I should have been doing is yo, draw up a loop, yo, pull through 1 loop, yo, pull through 2, yo, pull through 2. Does anyone know what stitch I'm actually doing? I thought maybe it could be a HDC extended, but that is pull through 1, yo, pull through 3. I'm not going to tear back my projects, and I'll keep using the stitch, but it would be nice to know what the stitch is actually called.
