  1. Hi, I have been going through a bag of assorted crochet hooks and have found one which is like none of the other ones. It is plastic and has a hook at one end but the hook has a vertical slit down the side. It is also blunt at the top, and has a hole drilled through the hook at the other end. I have attached pictures of the hook as that will be easier to see than my description. I have assumed that this is for crocheting of some sort, as in a bag of crochet hooks, but might not be. I Was wondering if anyone had seen a hook like this before, or knew what it is for?
  2. My Christmas present to myself arrived, namely the Denise brand set of crochet hooks in standard sizes with attachable cords. I've never worked with them before and boy to I need help! What is the best way to grip the hook for the return passes? With a standard tunisian hook I just use the part with no stitches on it, but with these corded hooks that's not an option. Does anybody have any tips or tricks on how best to hold the work and corded hook? It's the return passes that are frustrating me -- casting the stitches on isn't difficult. Thank you!
  3. Hi all, I am new to the site and somewhat new to crocheting as well and have come here for some help after rudely being kicked out of a facebook group for asking for help . I am making an awareness ribbon shawl for my mom for Christmas. I've already picked out the yarn which is a 4 (Medium) and is said to be the same as the Red Heart Super saver that was used in the instructions I am using. I tried my first 5 or 6 rows but found that the awareness ribbons weren't very clear. They looked more like x's. So I went back and read the needed sized hook and found that I got a 3.50mm instead of a 3.75mm hook. I thought I'd just go out and by the next size up but then found out that my yarn calls for a 5mm hook. Do I need to change yarns or hook? And if the hook, what size? Any help is greatly appreciated since my last group experience led me to tears. I can add the link to the pattern if it will help but don't want to break any rules so if someone needs to see it let me know!
  4. I've been married a little over a year and I just found out my husband used to do woodwork! Well he kept telling me all about it so I put him to the test. I told him I wanted him to make me a wood crochet hook. He said that was easy and fast. Well it took him a few weeks to really finish it but I love it!
  5. :manyheartI had this happen today as I went to court with my husband for family business. I put my bag on the xray belt, and the guy at one end first saw my water bottle in the image and I had to show it to the female police officer. Like a water bottle is terrible. Then the guy noticed a crochet hook and yelled about Knitting Needles. So I said it was a crochet hook and it was plastic. My choice was to bring it back to the car, (about a 2 block walk) or I asked if I could throw it away. They let me throw it away. It was just a cheap hook, but it was the big deal they made of it. So we had arrived about 35 minutes early and I had nothing to do with my hands. It made me sad, because I could have gotten a few rows done on a prayer shawl. Well, I have learned my lesson and won't bring any hooks or needles to the courthouse if I have to go again. That sucks. Has anyone else had this difficulty? Or was it just this courthouse that was overzealous with the rules? I know I have brought them into the courthouse in my county and didn't have a problem. I'm glad I only had the one hook with me. What's your opinion on this?
  6. The afghan pattern calls for a #10 afghan hook and #7 crochet hook. In order to get the correct gauge, I have to use a #5 afghan hook. What size crochet hook should I use? Since I've gone from a #10 to #5 afghan hook, should I then use a B crochet hook (4.5 mm to 2.25 mm crochet hook)? Pattern does not give a gauge for the lace panel part of the afghan. Thanks for your help.
  7. I have instructions for an afghan from the 1970's. The instructions call for a #7 crochet hook and a #10 afghan hook. I have looked for equivalent hook sizes online, but have no idea what size hooks to buy so I can make this afghan. It's possible I have these hooks as I made this afghan long ago, however want to make it again. Many thanks for your help.

  9. Hi, my name is Tina, i love crochet and everything related with yarn, knit, fashion and contemporary art.
  10. Hello from an old timer! I joined sometime around 2005 then got very busy with other things. I'm in northwest Missouri where the weather is beautiful today! I have a question and maybe should post it elsewhere but I'll start here. When a pattern says "1 dc in 4th ch from hook", do you count the hook as one and go from there? Sometimes it works different it seems depending on who wrote the pattern or maybe I've been doing it wrong all along! How do you know when you start a project what chain you're actually to be starting in? Hope that makes sense! Thanks for any help!
  11. My 12 year old DD has been into making these lately. They take her about 2 and 1/2 hours. What do you think? She does some craft fairs, and she is making them to sell. Pricing suggestions?? She learned how from a youtube video from yolandasotolopez.
  12. Hi All I was just going to reffer you to one of my favorite youtube channels. She does lots of crocheting videos showing how to crochet different things. I really enjoy doing her crocheted lovies or security blankets. Here is a link to one. She is very thorough and walks you through everything. I highly reccommend her to anyone including begginers. Here is a link to her channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/yolandasotolopez?feature=watch Woohoo!!! Just keep crocheting!!!!
  13. I saw in a recent magazine, for the life of me I can't remember which, a bracelet made from soda tabs. I loved it and wanted to make one, but didn't want to buy the magazine. I also didn't have the materials called for. I came home, gathered some tabs, found some thread that I had laying around, grabbed up a hook and off I went. When I was done, and the only reason I was done was because I ran out of soda tabs, I had a bracelet and a belt for my 13 year old daughter which she promptly wore to school. I have a pic of the bracelet, but the belt is no longer mine. They were both were made the same way.
