  1. Hello! I'm new in the crochet world and need some help understanding patterns. Up to now, I have been following video tutorials for beginners with some degree of success. Now I am trying to work with written patterns. Can you explain me what the instruction: Rounds 5-7 (7, 9, 9, 11) means? Up to this round everything was going fine. Thank you for your help.
  2. I picked this pattern because it's labeled "Easy Peasie Beginner," and I know how to do all the stitches needed for the blanket. I'm also familiar with crochet abbreviations. However, these instructions are not painting an "easy peasie" picture in my head: 1st row: (1 dc. Ch 1. 1 dc) in 5th ch from hook (counts as dc. Skip 2 ch). *Skip next 2 ch. (1 dc. Ch 1. 1 dc) in next ch. Rep from * to last 3 ch. Skip next 2 ch. 1 dc in last ch. Turn. Could someone whose brain works in the necessary way PLEASE translate that into easy peasie language? What does the first set in parentheses mean? Why does the "counts as" parenthetical sound like it means something else entirely? Grateful for any explanation.
  3. [hdc in 3 hdc, dec] 12 times-48 hdc. Work one rd even. Please explain work one rd even for me please.
  4. Starts June 21st, 2014 and if you can come by the shop, we will start at1 pm. Spring & summer is here and a nice crocheted shawl for those cool evenings or air condition spaces would be great to have, especially because you made it yourself! You can choose from two patterns: V-Stitch & Scallop Shawl: http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LC4100.pdf Lion Brand free pattern library: http://www.lionbrand.com/printablePatterns/WildFlowerShawl.pdf Both patterns are intermediate that with help most can do either of these patterns. I made a few changes (of course) when I made my V-stitch & scallop shawl. I used Bamtastic yarn from Plymouth (a nice bamboo & nylon mix which adds bounce to my shawl) and a "F" hook. It took three balls. This allowed me to shorten the number of rows needed for the body to 54 rows before adding my scallop trim. For the Wild Flower Shawl I used Saucon Sock from Kraemer Yarns. It's a cotton, acrylic & nylon sock yarn with about 231 yds per skein. The yarns are available at most local yarn shops. If needed they are available from my shop @ 856.669.1131. Because there is 430 yds per skein of Saucon Sock yarn I will half the skein for all colors (except black), and half the cost as well.
  5. I'm making my first lapghan and everything was going smoothly until I ran across this instruction: "Rep Rnd 4 for pat and work 2 more rnds with CC" Am I supposed to repeat Rnd 4 a total of three times after the initial Rnd 4 or is this telling me that the pattern in Rnd 4 will be repeated twice...? Thank you to anyone who can help me out on this!
  6. Hi, Since I am still novice in reading written instructions I would appreciate it if someone could write following instructions in full, so I can be sure I am interpreting them right: Instructions begin like this (here is the full version http://www.lionbrand.com/printablePatterns/80985AD.pdf): FIRST HALF Ch 136. Row 1 (WS): Sc in 5th ch from hook, *ch 5, sk 2 ch, sc in next ch, ch 2, sk 1 ch, sc in next 3 ch, ch 2, sk 1 ch, sc in next ch; rep from * 13 more times, ch 5, sk 2 ch, sc in next ch, ch 2, sk 1 ch, sc in last ch. Row 2 (RS): Ch 1, turn, sc in first sc, sc in next ch-2 sp, *scallop in next ch-5 sp, sc in next ch-2 sp, ch 2, sc in next ch-2 sp; rep from * 13 times more, scallop in last ch-5 sp, sc in turning ch – 15 scallops. Thanks,

  8. Hi everybody, I'm attempting to make a baby blanket for the first time and I adore the pattern but the instructions leave a little to be desired (at least to me). The pattern works up in a shell motif and I don't have any problems working the rows. My problem is the beginning shell at the beginning of each row. My problem is that my ends aren't coming out looking the same. Some rows are longer than others and some are more pointed and others are more rounded. I can't decide if the Ch 3 is only used in the very first beginning shell or if it's used in each row. I'm going to attempt to upload the pattern so you can read the instructions and I've taken some pictures and make some notes so you can see what I mean. If someone can just explain to me EXACTLY how to do the beginning shell on each row, my problem will be solved. I've already started over once and I know I'll have to start all over again, because I can't see any way to salvage what I've got here. Hope this makes sense. If not, feel free to ask questions. Thanks for your help. Nance
