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?
I've been staring at the same part of the pattern now for 4 days. I have to join these two pieces together to form the side seem of the tunic, but I don't understand the chart, or where on the chart to even begin. There are 5 large motifs in each section (front piece, back piece) , and you attach them as you go. Then you join the 2 groups of 5 and the side becomes the side of the tunic. This is where I got lost. I am madly in love with the pattern. The designer makes the most beautiful clothes.

So I'm making this little sweater, fallowing the 18mo size in the pattern. I've got all the pieces crocheted for it. But now I'm confused about how I'm suppose to attach them all together, especially the hood piece. Here's what the pattern says; "Fold Hood in half along back seam edge and sew center back seam. Pin shaped edge of Hood to neck opening, beg at center of button or buttonhole bands and matching back seam of Hood to center back neck edge. Sew in Sleeves placing rows above markers along armhole edges of Fronts and Back to form square armholes. Sew side and sleeve seams. Sew buttons to correspond to buttonholes." I'm so confused! Why am i supposed to fold the hood, if I do then it doesn't fit to the back piece evenly. If someone could please explain how to do this in greater detail, that would be awesome!

I love making baby and toddler hats, and with a new baby on the way this winter, I have tons of ideas for cute newborn hats. I just hate that my hats always have a line of holes down the back where I've made the chains to join the rows. Its not very obvious, but it still bugs me. Is there a better way to do this that I haven't found yet?
So I'm working on making a small purse. I have a few rectangle pieces that I will be sewing together with yarn and a yarn needle. The corners are curling a fair amount, so I want to make sure I block them all. My question is, is it better to... A) Sew all the pieces together, then block the entire thing B) Block all the pieces individually, then sew all the pieces together C) Pin the pieces together, block while pinned, and then sew pieces together. Also, if it makes a difference, I'm using Red Heart Value yarn. So the basic and cheap worsted weight yarn made of acrylic. Its a bit rougher and has a little more of a ridged drape then other nicer but more expensive yarns. And while I'm here asking, if you could also tell me what the best method of blocking to use would be, that would be great! Thank you!
