keshoe posted a topic in General Crochet HelpI just learned to crochet and I have a baby girl and am having fun making hats for her and thought, what about a bonnet? Well, I found this old pattern online at grandmotherspatternbook.com and started it but got stuck on round 2 of all places. It reads: Row 2— Work 2 D. C. in first space, * yarn over hook, insert hook in back of next D. C, draw up a loop, yarn over, draw up a loop in same place, yarn over, draw up a loop in same place, yarn over, draw through all loops on hook, chain 1, 2 D. C. in next space, repeat from * all around, having 16 puffs with 2 D. C. between each puff. Does this mean chain 3? or work the back loop? or the post from the double crochet? or something entirely different? I would appreciate any help in this as I would love to make this for my little girl. Then row 3 reads: Row 3 — 2 D. C. in centre of 2 D, C. and work puff around puff of preceding row. I also don't know what "work puff around puff" means Thank you ahead of time for taking the time to read this and I hope that someone out there can help me
arielnipper posted a topic in General Crochet HelpI am crocheting my first sweater for a baby (I am not new to crochet and this is a simple pattern) and have never seen this term used before "work in part." If someone could tell me what this means and how this is done I would greatly appreciate it, as I am in the dark even after searching online for about 2 hours and having no luck at all. If it helps the entire line reads: " chain 1, sc in first 2 stitches, work in part to last two stitches, turn".
Hi, I'm trying to teach myself how crochet and am trying to crochet a simple 4x14 single crochet rectangle. I am using "sugar and cream" 100% cotton yarn and a J sized hook. As you can see in my picture (though for some reason it came in upside down) my rows are all smooshed together Making a ribbed pattern. I am not just crocheting from the back loop, but am going though both the front and the back loops when I crochet. I try to keep my stitches the same tension- not too tight, but have a sinking suspicion that something is not right and no one to ask/show. If you could please be so kind and help me figure out what I'm doing wrong. Thank you for any help Nancy
