  1. I am working on a wrap and I am really stuck. I’m working ARAN TOGGLE Wrap i can not figure out what I am suppose to do. I’m confused Shape back neck Row 39: Work Row 3 on next 70 sts, turn. Row 40-44: Working on 70 sts only for Back, repeat Rows 2-3. Do not fasten off. RiGHT FROnT Row 1: Skip next 32 sts along Row 38. Join second ball of yarn in next st, ch 1, sc in next st, hdc in next st, *Bpdc in next st, Fpdc in next st; repeat from * across to last st; Bpdc around ch-2, turn – 46 sts (including the ch-1). Rows 2, 4 and 6: Work as established to last 2 sts before hdc, hdc
  2. Hi! I started crocheting just under a week ago, I can make squares using a double crochet (UK) but really want to make granny squares. I've tried following a few different tutorials and mine ends up circular instead of a square, and those gaps it's meant to have aren't prominent enough so it just looks like a weird circle. I'm pretty sure I've followed the tutorial right and can't think of what I'm doing wrong, I don't know enough about it to be able to think of what the issue could be. Also I'm left handed if that makes any difference to anyones advice (the tutorials I watche
  3. So, I am in the middle of making a wrap. This is my second one of the same pattern. The first was perfect. Thus, I figured I had it down and could crochet along without paying attention. Well, after creating about 60 rows I finally layed it out and saw that I screwed up and added too many bobbles on the 8th and 9th rows and then added more on the 10-12th rows. Who knows why, but thankfully the rest of the rows are all correct. So, now instead of being a huge rectangle it bulks up in the areas were stitches were added and, of course, wants to curve. Its not possible to frog it since the wrap co

    Hi, so im stuck on a pattern i purchased. Row 1: Ch 18, starting in 2nd BB (Back Bump the loop under your V in a ch) hdc 1 across, ch 2, turn. (17) Row 2: Begin working in BLO hdc 1 in 1st 15sts, hdc inc in the nxt5sts, hdc 1 in the last 15sts, ch 2, turn. (40) I dont understand how to do this?
  5. Hey there, I can’t replicate a mistake I made and I hope I’ll find some help around here I’m a beginner and I’m pretty lost. I tried to do a half color change with single crochets, but apparently I did something wrong as there’s a gap between the two colors. My first color was brown, then U changed it to yellow by doing a faulty half color switch while crocheting in rounds. Now, on the outside there’s a gap between the last brown and the first yellow row. You can’t see through, but you can pull the outer half apart and create a gap showing the inner half. Furthermore, i
  6. So, I am making a baby shirt and trying to get started on the sleeves. I joined the yarn under the armpit and Row 1 says ch1 hdc in same st, hdc in next at, make a hdc along the side bar of the hdc... I have never heard of anything other than the side bar stitch but I’m not sure that’s what they’re talking about? The pattern is worded pretty odd in some places and it mentions side bar of the hdc a couple times but with no explanation.. Anyone have any opinions??
  7. I'm new to crochet and have only done very basic things so far! I've been making an amigurumi dinosaur and have got to a section that has got me so so confused! As part of the instructions for the head it says: Work only 35sc. Leave the last 7 stitches unworked. Move stitch marker to last stitch in this row. This will be the new beginning of each row. Can anyone help please? 😩 Thanks!
  8. My pattern states 122 chain, but that is not a low loose neck for a poncho. Can I just make longer and make sure the two points are opposite each other?
  9. Hi everyone! I've been learning how to crochet whilst on maternity leave and am now crocheting clothes for a few of my friends/family and making a little bit of extra money! I'm completely self taught from you tube tutorials and I have made a dress for my daughter who is 2. I have now had an order for the same dress but for a larger size. How do I adapt the pattern to fit the new size? So for example if I chain 52 to begin for an age 2 how do I work out how many chains to start with for an age 4 for example? Sorry if it's confusing I think I'm also confusing myself 🙈
  10. Hi everyone, I’m trying to figure out how to make a bag out of spaghetti yarn (t shirt yarn). Every way I’ve tried it’s just not turning out smooth without holes. I’ve tried using a smaller hook size but it turns out very stiff then I tried using the correct 15mm size hook but it turned out with a lot of holes from the hook size. Am I using the wrong yarn or am I just not doing this correctly. Any help would be great please. Thank you!
  11. Hello, I'm currently working on a project I'd like to get done in time for Christmas. Though, I've managed to get stuck on a section of it. The pattern I'm using involves the pink triangles and the chart. It says we're suppose to increase using HDC and chains. However, when I start off by chaining three, and yarning over and HDCing into the first CH. Then continuing the pattern from there by chaining 3 turning my work and HDCing into the second stitch etc... I get big holes in my project. Which looks nothing like the pink triangles from the pattern.
  12. I was given this sample to make a baby blanket but I can’t figure out how to do the stitch. It seems like it’s an overlay but all connected. The pictures show both sides of the work. Does anyone have any ideas? Unfortunately the original crafter is not known. Thank you for your help!! Ann
  13. I’m trying to make a pattern that has a multicolor design (it’s a leopard gecko with a yellow top and a white belly) and instructions say to make a magic ring of 6 with 3 white stitches and two yellows. How on earth do I do this??? I can’t find any tutorial on how to make a two colored magic ring let alone make a round that the colors swap so frequently to maintain the solid colored underbelly look... does anyone have advice???
  14. My pattern states the following for a fan stitch: (dc{ch 2, dc-} 3 times) I’m reading this as: Dc, ch2, dc, ch2, dc, ch2, dc Is this right?
  15. Per your request I am introducing myself. I live in New Mexico and I first picked up a crochet hook at about 13 years old. This week I decided to pick up a crochet project I started several years back thinking I knew the stitch that I was using but was apparently wrong. 😞 Now I have about a yard of fabric completed and cannot continue. So I thought I would look for some assistance online and that led me to your site. Please let me know if you think you might be able assist. I am attaching a photo of the work I've done to see if you can tell what kind of stitch I was using. I wasn't using
  16. Hi folks! I am crocheting a pair of socks and am totally stuck at the heel! The pattern is driving me bonkers. Basically, it goes as follows: round 1: extended single crochet (exsc) in each stitch across 24 sts, work in established leg pattern across remaining instep stitches <— this makes no sense to me. There are 6 rounds in the leg pattern so how do I know what the “established leg pattern is”? How am i supposed to work that pattern in 24 remaining stitches? Does this make sense to anyone? I’ve attached pictures. Please help!
  17. Hello, I am crocheting a cape called “The Snow Charming cape. I am not a newbie at crocheting and usually don’t have a problem with a pattern. I am having difficulty understanding how parts are written.Row 3: Ch 2 dc in first stitch,[2 dc in next stitch, bpdc in next st] 11 times, 2 dc in next stitch, dc in last stitch; turn (37 st)This is actually how it is written. My problem is how to interpret the last part of the instructions. What do you do between the two dc in same stitch and the last dc? There are always stitches in between. I appreciate any suggestions.Sincerely Shirley McLain
  18. Hello all! I am not sure if someone can help me, but I hope so! I was asked (practically begged) to crochet a llama (last minute) for my niece got Christmas. How could I say no? So, the pattern I have is a free pattern from Red Heart. As I started I noticed that my counting and what the notes were, were completely different. For instance, row 17 calls for [8sc in next 8 st, 2 sc in next st]6 times-60 sc. The problem is that the math is wrong... 8 + 1 (2sc in ONE st) is 9 (not ten) and 9x6 is 54 not 60. So, do I make sure there is 60 total or do I just do the row pattern 6 times? Can so
  19. Hello! I posted this under Tunisian Crochet, but as the last post in this section was from April and I'm new to crochet forums, I'm not sure if this was in the right place--I'm reposting this here because I desperately need help! I'm trying to crochet my first pair of gloves (I asked my boyfriend what he'd want me to make him for Christmas and he, of course, chose the hardest thing possible). I found this pattern that I love, and so far it's gone well; I've reached the part where I'm supposed to chain a new section to begin making the thumb. This is where I get tripped up, thoug
  20. Hello! I'm trying to crochet my first pair of gloves (I asked my boyfriend what he'd want me to make him for Christmas and he, of course, chose the hardest thing possible). I found this pattern that I love, and so far it's gone well; I've reached the part where I'm supposed to chain a new section to begin making the thumb. This is where I get tripped up, though! The pattern states, "Ch 9 loosely, draw up a loop in 2nd st from hook and in each st of ch; 8 loops, work pat. until there are 22 loops on hook; work off loops. Work on these 22 sts for 2½ ins." My first issue is that when I
  21. I have a pattern for sc graph and I was wanting to know how to use dc on this graph to make the finished blanket larger. I read long time ago because dc is taller, then you use 2 dc in each square? would appreciate feedback on dc and hdc and how to use them in a graphghan
  22. Has anyone had any experience crocheting directly onto denim, such as adding an edging to a pair of jeans? I Just bought a couple of pairs of capris, and I don't like the rolled cuff on them. I'd like to cut that off and add a crocheted edge. I'm thinking I probably need to hem them, but then I'd be crocheting through two layers of denim. That doesn't sound so easy on the hands. Any suggestions for how to do this without ruining my capris and my hands? Thanks in advance!
  23. Hoping somebody can help. I am trying this pattern http://www.yarnspirations.com/on/demandware.static/-/Sites-master-catalog-spinrite/default/dw6d218def/PDF/BRC0202-002792M.pdf I am really confused about the MC instructions, particularly with beg row 3 where the chart comes in. Do I do 2 dc in each stitch, or do I do 1dc in 2 stitches to make the “block”. For the space, do I miss one dc for each space as in row 2, or do I just do ch1 1dc in each stitch? I’m doing something wrong because I cannot keep the right count according to the chart after trying this several ways. Sorry for the
  24. I was wanting to know if someone would guide me through a paid pattern By Julie Coco Cocoa Owl Scarf. I am looking for someone that would have this pattern also. I know my stitches. Just with my count, am a bit confused at the beginning of the pattern too.
  25. Okay.I was wondering if anyone else that has tried it had the same problem I have had with guage being to small. Well, it's not quite that simple actually. The guage is as follows. 14 rows by 7 bean( 6 loop puff) stitches= 4" by 4". (Lion brand mandala yarn size 3)And of course using the famous size H crochet hook. But it also says, an easier way to guage your project is that your starting chain of 100 equal 27 to 28 inches long. My problem is, when I guage my project, even a J hook doesn't quite get me 7 bean stitches equaling 4 inches( try making 7 bean stitches with something close to an
