  1. Per your request I am introducing myself. I live in New Mexico and I first picked up a crochet hook at about 13 years old. This week I decided to pick up a crochet project I started several years back thinking I knew the stitch that I was using but was apparently wrong. 😞 Now I have about a yard of fabric completed and cannot continue. So I thought I would look for some assistance online and that led me to your site. Please let me know if you think you might be able assist. I am attaching a photo of the work I've done to see if you can tell what kind of stitch I was using. I wasn't using a "formal pattern or stitch". I just knew I would like an afghan for my living room and decided to crochet it myself with a simple stitch that I "thought" was a simple double crochet. Obviously that was incorrect since when I added a couple rows of double crochet it did not match my previous work. I have looked through a lot of crochet photographs and have found nothing similar in appearance to what I did previously. I really like, not only the appearance of the previous work but I love the soft drape of it and it feels exactly like what I wanted when I started the whole project. I have also ripped out several rows in an attempt to deconstruct what I was doing previously but I am just not experienced enough to figure it out. I would appreciate any help or guidance that can be provided. On the first photograph I have circled an area where there is a diagonal thread on the back side that creates a small opening. That opening is skipped and I was stitching into the next "opening/stitch". I'm pretty sure I was wrapping the thread over the hook and inserting it in the next stitch but from there I'm lost. Thank you, Patricia

    Unclear directions

    I’m using N hook with Homespun Thick & Quick yarn. My problem is that I don’t understand the last bit of round 1 where it says “hdc in top of beginning ch-2 - 4 corner ch-2 space”. It’s tge “4 corner” direction that has me perplexed—what is it asking me to do? I added a picture of the directions. Thanks!
  3. Can anyone tell me what type of crochet stitch is being used here in the light green area (above the pink on the wrist). It looks like possibly 3 dc stitches in one hole, but I'm wondering if anyone knows more? Thank you!
  4. My grandmother's aunt made this for her a long time ago. I want to make one for my mom but I'm not sure what these stitches are. The pattern looks complicated but I love it! I really just need the names of the stitches and I can easily look them up, but if someone wants to try to explain them to me I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you!

  7. Hello Everyone, I am Anne! I am new here, I was trying to figure this stitch out and can't figure it out! It's the knot-like sections that I can't get, bobbles don't work for it! I am stuck! It is a very fine piece, I am using a 1.05 size hook, but could go finer, I just can't find my fine ones at the moment, I usually work on chunkier pieces! Any ideas out there of what this stitch can be?! Many thanks for any ones advice Anne
  8. Hello, sorry if this is in the wrong area but I have just signed up. Hoping someone can help me decipher a baby cardigan pattern I am attempting. I believe it is in UK terms... It says, for row 2, 1tr in each st to end, 1tr in third of 3-ch from previous row. What does the '1tr in third of 3ch... row' mean? It comes up a lot in this yoke section. Any tips or pointers would be gratefully received! Thanks a million

    Lost Stitches - How?

    I'm playing around with a Tunisian Simple Stitch. I have to say it's really fun and I enjoy it! BUT, I'm still learning and having a hard time with the left edge. I've lost stitches along the way and can't figure out why or how and if I can add a stitch. I'm watching videos and it seems like I'm doing what they instruct me to do. Does anyone know how or if I can add in stitches or any tips to watch out for at the end? This is really for practice more than anything and I'm fine to restart but I want to make sure I'm understanding the concept before I start again. Photo attached.
  10. Out of curiosity, what is your favorite go-to crochet stitch? I was thinking of this because, now that my blanket is done, I've been crocheting squares with the leftover yarn, using my favorite stitch, the wattle stitch ("V" stitches - sc, ch 1, dc). So, what is everyone's favorite stitch?

    How to bobble a stitch?

    I'm still pretty new to crocheting and I'm trying a new pattern it asks for me to "sc4, 2dc-bobble2 (6)". I'm assuming this to make the ankle of this leg but I have no idea how to bobble or what it even means. Everytime I try to look it up it just brings me to pages of people adding or making baubles for their projects. Any help is appreciated, though if you know where I could find a video or some such that would be amazing. Thank you so much!!!

    Afghan Help!

    I am starting an afghan as a beginner, and in the first row after the foundation chain, the pattern reads: Row 1 (Right side): Dc in sixth ch from hook (5 skipped chs count as first dc plus ch 2) and in next 2 chs, * YO, insert hook in next ch, YO and pull up a loop, YO and draw through 2 loops on hook, YO, skip next 3 chs, insert hook in next ch, YO and pull up a loop, YO and draw through all 3 loops on hook, dc in next 3 chs, ch 2, dc in next ch, ch 2, dc in next 3 dc... That last step is where I get completely lost! How do I dc in the foundation chain? I don't have any dc in rows below because there aren't any previous rows! Help!
  13. Hi all! Would any of you happen to know the name of this stitch? I saw the swatch at Joanne's Crafts and would love to try it out but can't figure out the name/pattern. Thank you for your help!

    DC in stitch directly below?

    What does this mean: "Chain 3 double crochet in single crochet directly below." I get the chain 3 but, is this just another way of saying "double crochet in the same stitch?"

    Place Stitch

    Would someone explain to me and some others who are confused as to where that first stitch goes. Where to make your first stitch, when a pattern says. Turn work, Ch 3, 1 DC at base of turning chain. ? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/evas-shawl

    Border stitch identification

    Hey guys! What's the stitch pattern for the black border in the link below? It's really neat and I want to use it! https://www.etsy.com/listing/214772422/eye-spy-festival-top-perfect-for?ref=listing-shop-header-1
  17. Hello everyone ! I'm a crochet beginner but I LOVE IT already!! I'm new to the crochetville community and I'm very happy to be part of it ! I've read several topics and everybody is very nice and helpful! I was wondering if someone knows a way to recreate in rows the look of a back loop slitch in continuous rounds. I would really like to make a shawl with that same look. Since it's in rows I have to "switch" sides so back loop crochet all the time doesn't give the same look (compared to continuous rounds). I tried to reverse front loop when I was supposed to be on the "wrong" side but it's still not the same look. Do you know how? Can you help me out? Thank you all so much for your time and knowledge. Here is a photo of my hat with the back loop stitch in continuous rounds to show you what I'm talking about.

    What Does This Mean?

    I have been crocheting for a few years now, but haven't tried any patterns that were too difficult. I usually crochet amigurumi and just recently, graphgans. Since it's getting cold, I've decided to start crocheting hats and found a cute pattern that I'm excited for. I started and then was stumped. "ch 2 and fpdc around same st, fpdc around next dc, dc in each of the 2 sts just worked in behind the fpdc sts..." So I figured out the front-post double crochet easily enough. I pick up on new stitches rather quickly, but its the double crochet in each of the 2 sts just worked in behind the fpdc sts that confuse me. Do I turn my work? Where are these stitches? Any suggestions would be wonderful!

    Help! Need to identify stitch!

    I'm not a very experienced crocheter, but I like to throw myself into challenging projects. I recently saw this picture of a crochet dress and I've started making my own version of it. But I'm having trouble identifying the stitch thats marked in the picture. If you know what it is please let me know, or if you know of a similar stitch which is just as open as this one, that would be great! Thank you so much! )
  20. I don't know if this makes sense or not but I have an amigurumi pattern that I want to do, and I want to make it twice the size. So I was wondering if it was possible to somehow 'double' the stitch pattern? Thank you for any help that you can give.

    Crochet Shell Stitch Blanket

    I am just not good with naming my patterns! I really do try but I end up leaning towards the color; but that can be a bad thing considering you can use ANY colors! So my latest pattern just got a generic name. If someone wants to throw some ideas my way, I will seriously consider them! This pattern is super easy and can have the colors changed around for uniqueness. The shell stitch is done in multiples of 6, so keep that in mind if you want to make yours wider. http://missedstitches.blogspot.com/2014/05/crochet-shell-stitch-blanket.html Be sure to browse through the rest of my blog for more FREE patterns and like me on FB to get updated when I add more!
  22. http://slugsontherefrigerator.com/pattern-mermaid-tail/ I am having a lot of trouble with the mermaid tail. I got the waistband all ready to go. I followed Row 1 for the tail and got 9Sh just fine, however I had about 2 inches of extra waistband that didn't have a shell across the top of it. I thought maybe it was an extra length to wrap with the buttons so I kept going. On Row 2, I ended up with only 8Sh total, so then on Row 3 I had only 7Sh. I am doing the 3ch and 2 tr (which is a dc in the USA, right?). I really felt like I followed the directions. By the time I was done with row 3, I could not visualize how to repeat row 2 (for row 4) withOUT turning it. Do I work backwards? Wouldn't it turn out almost the same as turning it ? I thought I was getting good at crochet, but this is really throwing me for a loop. I would love your insight on this! ----------trouble below ----------------- Row 1: Using the larger hook 1ch, 1dc, 9Sh. Turn. (9)Sh Row 2: 3ch (counts as 1tr), 2tr in first dc, 8Sh, 3tr in last dc. Turn. (9)Sh Row 3: 1ch, 1dc 9Sh. Turn. (9)Sh Row 4: As Row 2. Do Not Turn. **If someone figures this out and works through it, I would love step by step pictures of how you are doing Row 2 and Row 4.

  23. I just released my latest crochet pattern and it's pretty cute! Get it on sale for 2.99 until 1/29/14 http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/aislinn-celtic-dream-bonnet
  24. I found this stitch while browsing for new patterns and I could not find anymore information on it or where it came from. This unique flower pattern in particular is so adorable and delicate, compared to others I have seen. I would really like to replicate this stitch but I am not sure how to do it. Can anyone help me?
  25. I wrote a new blog post about a common problem that many crocheters have. You are in the yarn store and see so many goodies, including regular yarn and novelty yarns. You find the most beautiful colorful, fun, crazy looking novelty yarn and purchase it. When you get home, you realize there is no crochet hook recommendation and you immediately think "How am I going to crochet this?" For those of you who have experienced this problem, I wrote a tutorial blog post for you. In my post, How to Crochet Novelty Yarns with the Alternate Double Crochet Stitch, you can learn how to crochet any yarn mush faster and less painfully. Hope you check out my new post, feel free to comment with your discussion!
