    Need help to learn single crochet

    Hi, I have been trying to learn how to single crochet for almost 2 weeks now, but no matter what I do, the square I'm trying to make has millions of holes, not a nice neat piece like I see in the hundreds of tutorials I have watched. Ugh. I have cheap average yarn, and have been using the 5mm, 6mm and 7mm hooks but each produced these dreaded holes. I squeeze the hook under the top 2 stitches, yarn over, pull through the first 2 loops on hook, yarn over again and pull through the last loop on hook. Am I supposed to only yarn over once, or is this a different technique, slip stitching possibly? Thanks for any assistance, I really want to get this right before moving on, please refer to the attached pic to see the holes.

    Graphghan Troubles

    I am attempting to make my first graphghan, using SC. The pattern is only 2 colors. Part of the emblem calls for a row with 1sc of one color followed by 1 sc of another (alternating a few times during the row). I feel like the stitches look messy with both colors visible when I alternate the 1 sc chains. The other part of the emblem, with longer rows of solid color, looks fine. Does anyone have advice for this issue? Should I use separate bobbins for the alternating sc's (which would get cumbersome)? Or should I plan to go back afterward with the same color yarn and try to mute out the bleed-through color? The project is a special gift for my son, who is entering the Marines, so I am in a crunch with time too. Any advice would be welcomed.

    Help with amigurum

    Well it has taken a lot of You Tube and a lot of starting and stopping but I got to do a magic ring, crochet 6 stitches and closed the ring ok! What I would like to know is that my pattern says crochet 2dc in each stitch. I find this really difficult, I cant seem to find the stitch again (maybe it's too tight?). Is it really necessary to crochet in dc as I find, at the moment I can manage single easier!! I am just working on a test piece before I start the actual toy.
  5. I am about to start a temperature Afghan, I wanted to do it in single crochet linen stitch, but I like doing most of my projects with a chianless foundation row. If I were to do a Sc chainless foundation row, would it wreck row two of the linen stitch?

    Graphghan #2 Johnny Cash

    This one if for my niece. I didn't love the picture, I didn't find it clear enough if that makes sense. But she loved it so I am surprising her for Christmas. I worked like a bunny to get it done in time. Now I really am moving on to Phantom! LOL It's all single crochet and I used an H Hook and Red Heart Supersaver which I love. Once you wash it it becomes super soft.
  7. Hi I have a question. Is it possible to start a ripple pattern part way through a blanket? I want to make a blanket that looks like the sea with a beach. I want to crochet the beach straight but then I want to do the sea with a ripple pattern. I want to do the beach first as I am using Lionbrand homespun and that would make it easier to start as the chains are nearly impossible to see. Thanks

    need help with pattern

    I'm crocheting a cardigan and I dont quite understand a part of the pattern. I crocheted the back, and the next part says, "work as for back - 9 (11, 13) ch-1 sp". I understand that the parentheses are for different sizes, but the rest confuses me. I can post more pattern of needed. Any one help?

    Ripple Afghan

    It took me about 16 months to finish this project, just in time for my daughter's birthday. It's big enough to cover a queen size bed. I used about 10 skeins of Hobby Lobby, I Love This Yarn, Over dyed. The afghan is all done in single crochet.

    Flaptop Kindle Cozy

    I developed this pattern based on a customer's requests....she wanted a cozy that was longways with a flap to close with a button. I wasnt able to find any other patterns like that for free online, so I wrote my own. I hope you enjoy it! Joy Flaptop Kindle Cozy--Envelope style/longways 8" wide x 5" tall H hook ww yarn of choice--approx 100 yds 1" diameter button GAUGE: 4 sc and 4 rows=1 inch Ch 31 ch1 and turn after each row numbers in ( ) at end of each row instruction is the total number of stitches in that row Row 1: (RS) sc in 2nd from hook and each across (30) Row 2: sc in each across (30) Repeat Row 2 until 10" in height Starting flap for front of cozy: Row 3: Decrease sc2tog on each end and two times evenly (4 dec total) (26) Row 4: sc in each across (26) Row 5: Decrease sc2tog on each end and two times evenly (4 dec total) (22) Row 6: sc in each across (22) Row 7: Decrease sc2tog on each end and two times evenly (4 dec total) (18) Row 8: Decrease sc2tog on each end and two times evenly (4 dec total) (14) Row 9: sc in each across (14) Row 10: sc in first 6 st, ch2, sk 2, sc in last 6 st.

With right side face down, fold bottom edge up to last row of 30 sc (last row of Row 2 repeat before decrease rows begin) Starting in bottom right corner of cozy, sc edges together. Stop when you reach the flap and fasten off. Starting in top left corner of cozy (not the flap), sc edge together to bottom left corner. Fasten off Turn cozy over so back is facing you and flap is extended upward. Starting on Row 3 (first dec row), sc up in left side of flap stitches edge, across the flat part of flap, and down in right side of flap stitches edges, ending when you reach the cozy seam created earlier. Fasten off. Fold flap over to front and attach button in place for button hole alignment.     © Joy Merrill, 2012 You may use this pattern to make items to sell, but may not copy the pattern for distribution in print or electronically.
