    Newbie needs help

    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 do practice triangles. And they are not coming out like the pictures. 1. The holes in ours are way larger than the holes in these pics. The hole comes from creating a ch3 followed by a 2dc. I tried decreasing it to ch2 instead but the holes are still too big. 2. I'm thinking tha worsted weight yarn may be too heavy for what was used to create the red and blue blankets. I would LOVE to get your help for: 1. How to make the holes smaller. 2. What kind of weight yarn may have been used in the 2 pics. This blanket is special for us. I would love us 3 to create something beautiful as well as the memories to go with it. Thank you for your help! Sofia
  2. 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.

    Pattern help

    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?
  5. 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 beginner I’d be so grateful! Round 9: *inc,4dc, repeat from * to end (36sts) how do I do this?!!
  6. 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 break it down to smaller parts to make it simpler or am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated!

    Vintage Pattern Predicament

    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!
  9. 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 to start marked in row 4. Heel Rnd D: ch 6, skip 8 sc, sc in next 10 sts around. Rnd 7: Drop down one row to beginning of Rnd D, work sc in first st, work post st in the next 6 sts, continue with sc around to mark: count 18. Rnd 8-15: Mark row, sc in each st, slip st, fasten off.
  10. Hi all, I am looking to create a pattern for a sweater for a friend of mine. I'm a relatively new crocheter, and I've never traveled into the realm of pattern making. I think I need some help . My friend is looking for something like this sweater: I'm not sure where to even start making a pattern for something like this. Some help would be really great. Thanks in advance!!!

    Pattern help :)

    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 advice is greatly appreciated

    Need help reading this pattern

    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=
  15. 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 turned out really well. However, I'm struggling with the pattern for the Camisole Top. The instructions say: Rnd 1 (RS): Join yarn with a sl st in the same ch as beg ch-3 of lower section-Rnd 1. I understand what it's telling to me to do as far as the abbrv. etc, but i don't know how to find that rnd and that beg ch 3 on my work. Can someone help me out? Thanks
  16. I recently started a new afghan and am really truly in LOVE with this pattern. I honestly cannot figure out how to join the second second square in the row. 1st and 2nd rnds: Work as given for first square. 3rd rnd: Join to previous square. Ch 5.*(Dc3tog. Ch 1) in next arch. Insert hook from RS in center ch of corner of previous square and sl st. (Ch 1. Dc3tog) in same arch.* **Ch 2. Insert hook from RS in center ch of ch 5 arch of previous square and sl st. Ch 2.** 1 sc in next arch. Rep from ** to ** once more. Rep from * to * once more. 2 squares joined.[Ch 5. 1 sc in next arch. Ch 5. (Dc3tog.Ch 3. Dc3tog) in next arch] twice. Ch 5.Sl st in top of dc. Fasten off. I get that you are creating rows and they need to be in a straight line. What I don't get is how you are getting from the sides. When it says Join to previous square - is that like slip stitch somewhere? Or just letting you know that's what you do in this round? If that's just what you do then where is RS? I'm just generally confused -- any help would be amazing!! http://www.allfreecrochetafghanpatterns.com/Lace/Irish-Lace Thanks!!
  17. 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 opposed to just 7 or 8 around the entirety of the blanket. Basically, what I'm trying to make is something similar to a round ripple-patterned blanket, but with the edges being rounded instead of pointed. I've been crocheting for years and know how to read patterns if anyone has one I could use, but I just haven't been able to find on online. Thanks for your help! Here's a very rough sketch of the final project. I'd like the "base" of the doll (i.e. the blanket portion you can see more clearly in the top view) to be about 10'' in diameter. Sorry I'm not the best artist, but hopefully this gets the point across:

    Pumpkin hat help please

    My cousin has asked me to make her daughter a pumpkin hat for Halloween. The pattern I found is only for a newborn. Her daughter is almost 2 years old. Can someone help me make the pattern larger without compromising the piece? Pattern: Pumpkin:: Ch 25 Row 1: hdc in BL of 3rd ch from hook and in each at across, chain 2, turn (23 hdc) Row 2-23: hdc in BL in each st across, chain 2, turn Row 24: hdc in BL in each st across, chain 1, turn Joining both ends , sl st down entire length of hat through both sides, fasten off and weave in ends Stem:: Using green, join with sc in top near back seam Sc even around (about 24 stitches) , do not join, when you arrive back at your 1st sc, begin sc2tog continuously around, until 4-5 stitches remain Now sc in each st around for about 6 rounds so that you create a 1-1 1/2 inch stem . Fasten off and tuck tail inside hat and weave in ends. So if anyone can help, please.
  19. 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! Here's the link to the full pattern: http://www.favecrafts.com/Crochet-for-Kids/Adorable-Toddler-Crochet-Pattern-from-Bernat/ml/1 Edit: Adding photos, hopefully they'll help other people understand this better then I do!

    Hello, if this goes well, I need help understanding a pattern for a valance that I am trying to crochet. The pattern reads as follows: *ch4, skip next (2dc, sc, 2dc), sc in the next dc, ch 3, skip next dc, dc in the next dc*. I am having problems with the section that I have underlined. It is from a pattern on Priscilla's Crochet. Thanks so much. Rhoda

    How do I FPDC in Tunisian

    Hello! Can anyone help me understand how to work a front post double crochet in Tunisian? The pattern I'm using is very confusing. I found a video tutorial, but the video had been removed. The pattern I'm working on is Keep Me In Stiches from TOP TECHNIQUES & SPECIAL STICH AFGHANS from The Needlecraft Shop. Thanks so much!
  22. I have a picture of a guy wearing a hat he lost. He wants me to make him one like it. He thinks it's made with bits of leftover yarn--a stash buster. I think it looks like that Red Hart variegated yarn by the picture but it's hard to tell. I can't really tell what stitch pattern is used either. I'm hoping someone can help me figure this out. Any feedback?
  23. Hi! Im new to this forum so I hope this is in the right place! I've been Crocheting for just over a year now and love love love it! However, I've met my match with this pattern Its a set I was given as a gift and this is the pattern, http://www.craftsinstitute.com/knitting/projects/kids/toys/dachshund-ted.aspx Im a little stuck with the instructions, on the second row, I understand that I need to add a extra SC at each end however, im not sure where im starting this second row? Am I going in a round, so into the other side of the CH 5 I started on? Sorry! I'm dyslexic so struggle with patterns a lot! All advice much appreciated! Kiyoko x
  24. I was wondering if someone could help me understand what this pattern is telling me to do in part #2 (UPPER BACK). I'm not sure if it's saying connect to the completed yoke or just go around the piece I'm working on. It's the Boy's and Girl's Bathrobe pattern originally published in Crochet World Magazine, Vol 21, No 1, Page 17. appreciate any assistance given.
  25. I 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
