    Sock pattern help!!

    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!

    Pattern understanding

    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

    Please HELP!!!

    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 someone please help before it drives me insane? lol Also, I tried contacting Red Heart to no avail. I am including the pattern just in case you need to see it. Thank you so much for any assistance!!! http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LM6195-Llama-No-Drama-Free-Crochet-Pattern.pdf
  4. 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, 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 "draw up a loop" in every stitch of the chain I end up with 9 loops on my hook, not 8. Not a big deal, I figured that's such a small difference I can work with it, it'd be fine. But with the next part, I literally have no idea what it means. How do I get 22 loops out of 8 (or 9)? Am I supposed to draw these off of the hook first, and then increase in that new section until I have 22 loops? It states that I'm supposed to work on these 22 stitches, so obviously that number is important, but it doesn't give me any instruction as to how to do that. My first instinct was to work the loops off of the crochet hook before increasing, but if I do that it makes a foundation that is significantly smaller than what 22 stitches from the get-go would give me. Why wouldn't I just chain 22 or 23 to start? I've looked online to no avail, and there's no way to contact the creator of the pattern that I can find. You can view the full pattern here Men's Afghan Stitch Gloves Pattern. (I figured once I started that "Afghan Stitch" is either another name or a type of Tunisian crochet; correct me if I'm wrong! Also, it might just be me, but the way this pattern is written gives me a headache--it's just the best I could find without having to knit with a set of double pointed knitting needles, and that seemed harder than figuring this type of pattern out). I'm bolding my two questions just because I know I've written a lot, so hopefully it's easier to read. I'm also adding a series of photos to show how I'm interpreting the first portion of the instructions for the thumb. I feel like I don't even know enough to try and guess around until I figure something out! This is my first time working with this type of stitch, and I've loved working in it so far--if I can just figure out what they mean by this one part, I think I should be able to finish this pattern and make a beautiful pair of gloves. Thank you!

    graphghan help

    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
  7. 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!
  8. 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 probably basic questions. I’ve never used a chart before and it’s a bit confusing to me.

    Need a guide

    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.
  10. 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 H hook and see if u get 4 inches lol), but it does get me a much longer starting chain than 28 inches lol I know I could just do less chains and bump up yet another hook size because the whole project is bean stitches. But I bet it just wouldn't look as pretty as the one online. Something has to be wrong with the way I'm crocheting or something. I just feel like the size of my beans vs how spaced apart they are.... (or maybe some other thing) would look bad. Not professional you know? I know it's a complicated question to tackle. But it's a free pattern. Easily accessible. https://www.ravelry.com/projects/pflaume/spring-bean-cowl I will post a picture of what mine keeps on coming up looking like. I did just unravel tho so I will have to make it again. Hopefully I figure something out this time. Sorry this is so long btw. And thank you for any help or tips/ ideas. An h hook only gets me to 7 beans equals 2 inches? J hook 3 inches. I sincerely doubt my guage is that different than hers. And it's a size 3 yarn too. A j or k hook seems a bit large for a size 3 yarn, but idk, I'm new to all this.
  11. I need help with this pattern posted free on this site https://www.free-crochet.com/detail.html?code=FC00415&source=pntrsta I have trouble with the joining of the squares instructions. I have just started this pattern, and I have made 2 motifs. Can't seem to understand how to join them and get the "X's" right. The square is easy, but having problems joining the squares. I don't know if you finish off both squares, or work to the joining rnd on rnd 11 and then try to join it them. Either way I have tried both ways and it seems impossible even though I know there is a way...but how? This is what I cam up with, but I don't like it. I am going to frog it, and start over with granny square instructions. I sure do appreciate her help, too!
  12. Hi, I'm new to crochet and so far so good but now stuck on a pattern step. Say: rounds 8-12 dc all sts (42 sts). Does this mean 42 sts in total or 5x rounds of 42? Picture for ref

    Combining two pieces

    Hey! Map I am making a baby blanket out of two panels that I want to combine. I thought it would be easy but I’m having trouble. It’s all double crochet but since ya in a chevron pattern the edges are not as clear. What do you think would be the cleanest way of connecting these two panels and any advice or recommendations on how to do this. Thank! KnitWhit

    General help

    Me again! Everyone was so helpful when I was making my bunny that I am back here again to ask for your help :-) im about to start a simple blanket, but the pattern will make a 2.4m x .8m blanket. I’d like it to be square. my question is, as it’s done in single crochet, with a chain of 50 and has just short of 100rows, is it as simple as doubling my chain length to 100 to make the chain length similar to the amount of rows? And if so, do I use double the yarn yardage or only 50% more? Thankyou in advance :-)
  15. Hi, me again! After people were so helpful yesterday on my increased I thought I’d ask about decreases today. pattern reads: *dec, 3dc, repeat from * to end (24sts) so I know I’m decreasing from 30stitches to 24, so a decrease of 6. However, I seem to be decreasing much more rapidly... I have read the pattern as: decrease to start, then 3 stitches, followed by another decrease. But this then decreases the round by 10 and not 6.... what am I doing wrong? Am I doing my actual decrease stitch wrong, or am I doing the decrease too soon? see picture for pattern, I’m on round 21, already completed 20 and despite doing it wrong I think I will leave it as is... thanks for any help guys! Visual is very useful for me :-)
  16. Hi, I’m new to this and New to crochet with patterns. I’m making a bunny for my nephews funeral so want to get this right. However, I’m stuck! I’m stitching double stitches in the round, and I’m fine with the pattern increases when it’s 2dc or less, but I’m not sure how to interpret it. I’m currently on round 8(finishing with 30sts), about to start round 9. But I’ve already done this on the body and this is where it started to lose shape so thought I would ask! most rows increase by 6, but it’s the bit that follows that confuses me, if some one can translate this to English for a beginner I’d be so grateful! Round 9: *inc,4dc, repeat from * to end (36sts) how do I do this?!!

    Help with pattern

    I’m trying to do the pattern sunburst pullover and I’m stuck on the rnd 7 that says to 7dc [dc,hdc,dc,tr,tr] all in one space. When I do that it’s to much when I do the next round it ruffles up. Am I doing it right is all of that in one space?
  18. Hello, I am a newbie here. I came across an instruction that really confuses me. It says "Make 4 chain (double chain with a single chain)." and I cannot for the life of me figure out what this means. Is this just a double crochet stitch? Thanks in advance for your help.
  19. Ive been worried about this all thru my project and I can't find an answer anywhere because I have a pretty specific question. I'm doing a blanket in squares. I know that getting all the squares to the same size is very important. But I absolutely cannot get all my squares to be exact. Some are a quarter inch smaller than they should be. Will that make my project look bad once it's put together? I did it in acrylic yarn. All my squares are supposed to be 8 by 8. But some are 8 by 8 or 7 and 3/4 by 8 and Visa versa, or even 7 and 3/4 by 7and 3/4. Is that to much variation?
  20. Hi there, I don't suppose anyone on here has the book mentioned above? It mentions that you can add a hood to your doll's jacket but I can't find the pattern for the hood anywhere in the book. Am I missing something? If anyone does know where to find it could you please tell me the page number? Thank you!

    Help on my crochet store name

    I can’t find a name for my store- which will sell crochet crafts and my art like paintings/ drawings. I like flowers, trees, Earth, I like moonstones I wish I could come up with something witchy! So far it was like “Stephanie’s—-“ but I want something indirect and because who knows I add other things to it later, I want something sweet but I’m out of ideas. I feel hopeless

    Help Me With Turning Please

    I also have a question myself, if someone could help. I'm working with a sweater pattern, and when I reached the end of my first row (using double crochet), it says, chain 3 turn 3, then continues on with the pattern for that row. So my question is, what does turn three mean? Nothing I can find on the internet is helping. From this: "repeat ** until the end of the row sk 3 , 1dc, ch 3 turn 3. Ch5, 1sc in the first ch space,"
  24. Hey everyone! So I need some help understanding this pattern. This pattern isn't written very well and I've worked through figuring it out up to now but I think my brain is fried and I can't figure this out. Im making a hooded batman cape for a toddler and am stuck on the hat. I've increased up until row 7 and am stuck on row 8 (see picture of pattern). I don't understand what the writer of the pattern means by "SC in each single crochet around increasing 6 (16 for toddler) evenly spaced single crochet for a total of 50 (60 single crochets made)." I'm making this for a toddler and that "16" is confusing me. Can anyone help me with this? I've emailed the woman who made the pattern but haven't heard back yet and I'm in a time crunch :/ Thank you in advance! Anna Here are the previous rows 6-9 written out (row8 is where I'm having problems): "Row6: Sc in each of the 40 sc around. Row7: Sc in each of the next 7 sc, make 2 sc in next sc around. (44 sc) note: do not make last sc increase on this round. Just sc in the last stitch. Row8: sc in each sc around increasing by 6 (16 for toddler) evenly spaced sc for a total of 50 (60 sc made). Row9-18: (9-20 for toddler): chain 1, sc in eCh of the 50 (60 for toddler) sc around.
  25. I'm starting a new project today, (and new to the forum, hi all!) and it's been years since I've followed a pattern, I'm already stuck on the first row and feeling like giving up already. Was hoping you could decipher for me. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and next 8 ch, [3 sc in next ch, sc in next 17 ch] 7 times, 3 sc in next ch, sc in last 9 ch changing to B in last st; turn. i understand the abbreviations, I know to change colors, turn, etc, but when it's telling me to sc 1, then 8, then 3 then 17, 7 times, aren't I just sc the entire row? Do they just break it down to smaller parts to make it simpler or am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated!
