  1. Good morning all- Have any of you done this old pattern originally from Annie's catalog? I managed through the first two parts (the center and the sunflower petals) but now I'm stuck on the final rounds. Once the green is attached, not sure which SCs to work in - I can only presume it is the ones that are at the bottom of the petals, that it is working between the petals so to speak. (The petals are so fluffy that it is hard to tell what they mean!) {Join olive green with sl st in next SC, ch 3, sl st in any 2 strands at center back of next petal (2DC in next SC, sl st in any 2 st
  2. EDIT: added picture for reference. It includes the rounds I am talking about and the previous round. I have finished round 5, and I’m trying to figure out how to work round 6-8. As you can see, round 5 has no trebles, which is why I’m confused. This pattern comes from Crochet, a book that had this pattern included. It’s called “polar bear comforter” I’m making a baby blanket. My pattern says “SS in space between sts, ch 2 (2 dc in-between each 2 tr) around, ss in first st to join. I need help understanding what’s in parentheses. I haven’t done and trebles in the pattern so far.
  3. So I'm trying to create a cabled triangle shawl and I have achieved something very similar to what I wanted, in the pics you can see, the cables are 6 dcs apart. My goal: I want there to be only 2dcs in between cables so they are much closer together Right now, I have been adding new cables once there are 12 sts ( not incl the edge stitch and one stitch inside the chain of the center point) on either side of an existing cable. Does that maybe help anybody to help me? Haha.. I have no clue. Thanks so much in advance
  4. Hi All, I just registered for this forum because I saw that helpful information is posted here. I'm also new to crochet. I bought the Boye "I taught myself to crochet" book and using it plus a lot of youtubes I've managed to get through several of the patterns successfully. I made the poncho (gave that to my mom.. ); I made the textured jacket for one of my daughters; I've started the Striped Throw for the other daughter and it's going well (so far). However, i'm currently working on pattern 16- Soft Sage Camisole-. I managed to figure out the Lower section and get that completed. It
  5. Hi all! I’m new to this forum... thanks for being here! My name is Leah and I have 20 years. I am making a couple scarves for my friends and I cannot figure out this pattern!! I have tried looking up “block” so many times and I can’t figure it out. I am not supposed to switch colors or anything...

  6. Hello! I am very new to crocheting. I have been a knitter for the last 30 years. My mom has always preferred to crochet. She is going to be 80 soon. After a recent hospitalization, we decided to make a quilt together with my 14yo daughter. After looking for a while, we came upon Ellen Gormley's triangle pattern found here: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/triangles-afghan The pattern calls for 3 colors. However, I found a picture (attached) that shows the same pattern but using 6 colors. The pattern also specifies worsted weight, 5.0mm needle. Both my mom and I have tried to
  7. I'm having trouble after 24th row. Do I crochet into both motifs, or go back and forth between the two? When do the join motifs come in. This is a free pattern on Ravelry, so you can understand where I am. Thank you in advance.
  8. hard to figure out this pattern. I have looked back to pic many times, and I am still having problems understanding instructions. Any help would be appreciated.

  9. Hello. I am trying to crochet a baby blanket using a new pattern. However the pattern says to “ch 1, skip 2 ch, (dc2-tog, ch 1, dc2-tog, ch 1, dc2-tog) all in next ch, ch 1” and I am confused on how to do a dc2tog in the same chain. Would I simply start a dc in the same manner as a dc2tog (yo, insert hook, pull through, yo, pull through two loops) before restarting for the second dc of the dc2tog and then finish it off as normal?
  10. 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 begi
  11. 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 bre
  12. I purchased the hooded owl blanket pattern and I got stuck on row 5. Can someone please maybe do a video tutorial with only a few chains from row 1 -7 for me please?
  13. I'm working a vintage dress pattern which starts at the hem and works up to the waistline. For some reason instead of getting smaller it's getting wider as it goes up, I started with chain 232 for a M/L and now I have 247. I know I messed up around the back closure line but I have no idea how, I've been working 10 tr, 3 tr in the next stitch, 10 tr, skip 2 the whole pattern. In my head I can't understand how that would make it get smaller but can't find anything in the pattern I did wrong. Please help! I've been working on this forever and I need it to be right. Thanks!
  14. I'm having a problem following this pattern at the heel. Can anyone make it clearer? I made the trouble section bolder. Working from toe up, foot has 18 stitches. Heel Rnd A: Ch 6, skipping next 9 sc, work sc in next 8 sts around. Heel Rnd B: Ch 6, skip 6 ch and skip 1 sc from previous row and sc in next 6 sts. Heel Rnd C: Ch 6, skip 6 ch and skip 1 sc from previous row and sc in next 4 sts. Continue to work sc, sts 5-8 will take you down the side of the heel (Rnd c,b,a), sc around the top of row 6, 16-19 will take you up the second side of heel (Rnd a, b, c), continue to sc around

  16. Hi all, i hope everyone is well i am in need of some advice for a pattern i am doing at the moment , i got this cardigan pattern from yarnspirations and the piece of the pattern i am having troubles understanding is as follows: " Continue even in pattern until work from marked row measures 12" (30.5cm) " However.... as you can see in the photos my work is already longer than 12" from where the pattern last told me to place a marker, SO i am unsure if i have to place another marker and work another 12" or this is it? the sleeve seems to short to be finished yet so i am lost haha any
  17. Hello! I was wondering when you guys make human dolls, what is the best route to go? Do you guys make a basic human body and then make clothes that you put on afterwards? or do you crochet pieces onto the body?

  19. Hey can anyone could at reading patterns help me figure this out. Square 2 of this pattern, Patch 1 says to start your stitch in chain 15 with color A which is white, but when you look at the picture there's no white stripes that start in the middle of a square so I'm not sure if this is a typo or if I'm just not understanding the pattern. Thanks. http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L40054.html?noImages=

  21. This is kind of hard to explain in words, but I've attached a rough sketch of what I'm trying to make, so hopefully that will help. The project I'm working on is one of those blanket dolls where the "body" is a blanket but there's a stuffed animal or doll "head" on top (sorry, I don't know what they're actually called, but you can see my point in the sketch I've attached). I want the blanket portion to represent the doll's dress, so I'd love it to have a scalloped edge around the bottom/outer portion of the circle. However, all the patterns I've found online are for much smaller "scallops", as

  23. 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
