  1. Hello, I need help identifying the pattern and stitch. I have been asked to make this blanket for my next grandchild. I found this picture on Flickr (
  2. 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.

    Granny squares

    Hello. I have a granny square inquiry. I'm making a valance for my kitchen window. I've made several sunflower granny squares, and was thinking to put one at the bottom, next row would be 2, next 3, and so forth, with a square in the middle of the top to attach the two sides. I have no problem connecting squares together, my question is this: Is there any way to attach granny squares to a single/double/triple ect. stitch? Say you're making a row by row throw blanket and want to add squares to the design, is this possible? I can figure out how to attach the top and bottom of the square, it's the middle stitches that are giving me fits trying to keep everything straight. I don't even know if what I'm attempting is even possible, but any help would be totally appriciated. Thank you.
  4. I was given this sample to make a baby blanket but I can’t figure out how to do the stitch. It seems like it’s an overlay but all connected. The pictures show both sides of the work. Does anyone have any ideas? Unfortunately the original crafter is not known. Thank you for your help!! Ann
  5. I’m trying to make a pattern that has a multicolor design (it’s a leopard gecko with a yellow top and a white belly) and instructions say to make a magic ring of 6 with 3 white stitches and two yellows. How on earth do I do this??? I can’t find any tutorial on how to make a two colored magic ring let alone make a round that the colors swap so frequently to maintain the solid colored underbelly look... does anyone have advice???
  6. 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?
  7. 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
  8. 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!
  9. 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!
  10. 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!

  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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!
  18. 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!
  19. 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?"
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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!
  24. 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! )
  25. 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!
