    sc and dc - US and UK

    I use the internet a lot for patterns and I know I can work it out by reference to hooks by letters vs numbers - but how do I know if dc means yarn over hook, pull through or just pull through etc

    General help

    Me again! Everyone was so helpful when I was making my bunny that I am back here again to ask for your help :-) im about to start a simple blanket, but the pattern will make a 2.4m x .8m blanket. I’d like it to be square. my question is, as it’s done in single crochet, with a chain of 50 and has just short of 100rows, is it as simple as doubling my chain length to 100 to make the chain length similar to the amount of rows? And if so, do I use double the yarn yardage or only 50% more? Thankyou in advance :-)
  4. Hello Everyone, I was hoping someone might be able to tell me what stitch this handbag is made with. I'm asking about the body of the bag, in black. I've asked around at local shops, and looked through all my crochet books but I can't find it anywhere. I really appreciate the help, it's been driving me crazy. Thanks so much,Carolyn

    Amigurumi help- stitches off

    Hi, I have completed several amigurumis in the past and I am now working on a unicorn. For some reason, I am having a really hard time with this pattern. I'm working on the front leg on row 18. I have counted my stitches from row 17 and I had 24, but at the end of row 18, I only end up with 15. Please help! Here is the link to the pattern. http://littleyarnfriends.com/post/24411665124/crochet-pattern-lil-baby-unicorn

    Please please help

    Please could someone please help me make sense of these instructions? I know to some these will be obvious but I'm really struggling Slip st in next 2 dc, (slip st, ch 1, sc) in next space between 3-dc groups, [*ch 2, sc in next space between 3-dc groups; repeat from * to next ch-3 space, ch 2, (sc, ch 3, sc) in ch-3 space] twice, ch 2; join with slip st in first sc—50 (54, 58) sc, 48 (52, 56) ch-2 spaces, 2 ch-3 spaces.
  7. Hi folks. I am crocheting my second animal, a polar bear from Edwards Menagerie. The pattern states Dc10, (dc2, dc2 tog) does this mean I am double crochet 12 then 2 together? I know that this question was asked before in the forum by some one else but I cannot find the answer. Thank you in advance.

    Pants pattern?

    I really want to make these pants but am a little confused. I understand the general idea but i dont understand what the written pattern is saying? Can anyone explain this better? 1. For the top side ( waist to hip) crochet in circle. When at hip, divide the circle in 2 and chain the required length in the middle of the circle linkinking to the oposite side .Work the leg length in circle multiplying to get the pallazzo effect every 10 rows, or every 5 rows depending on your desire. Chart translation in written pattern: 1. Row 1: chain the required length 2. Row 2 : ch 3, 3 x dc with 1ch in between in the 3rd ch, skip 3ch, X stitch( 1 dc in the 3rd chain , ch3 1dc in the 3rd ch back ( repeat sequence until the end of the row) close with 1dc 3. Row3 : ch 3, X stitch (1dc in 2nd chain space from the 3dc section below, ch3, 1dc in the first chain space), 3dc with 1ch in between in the 3 ch space below( X stitch), repeat until the end of the row, close with 1dc. This is where i got the pattern. They are the first pants shown. http://crochetpatternstotry.blogspot.ro/2014/05/free-crochet-charts-for-spectacular.html
  9. Hi. I'm an artist, and next year I will be doing an art installation. I want to create crocheted funnels that hang from the ceiling and go down onto the floor. I want them at their widest to be a few feet around. I am teaching myself to crochet specifically for this. I was wondering if any of you would have an idea on what stitches would be best. I can look everything up on Youtube to learn it, but I don't know the language of crochet, except for now, chain stitch and double crochet. Any advice would be well appreciated! Sincerely, Christine Dake, NY

    Rhyme of the Stitches Poem

    My mother taught me to crochet when I was ten. She gave me a copy of this poem many years ago. When I read through it, I believe it must be meant for English crocheting instructions, not American. See what you think, since the number of wraps is different than I was taught. The Rhyme of the Stitches If you who are dispairing Because you can’t crochet Will kindly give attention I’ll try & show the way; First, take a spool of cotton And hook of proper size And make a chain of stitches In manner of this wise! With thread upon your needle Tied there with knot secure You have the first loop ready A goodly start, I’m sure. Now put your thread once over And catch it with the hook. Draw thru the loop on needle You have one chain, just look! Once you have learned this process The rest you make with ease; And now we’ll try a treble, So simple, if you please. With one loop on your needle The thread o’er hook you throw In work your hook you enter And over once more go. Draw through & see three stitches On needle, side by side; Now over goes your thread again And hook through two must glide. Then over & through two again And now it is complete. Behold, our stately treble, ‘Twas but a simple feat. Should you wish to make a double, Insert your hook so true And continue as for treble With two stitches to draw through And next we’ll have the single ‘Tis easy to begin it; Put hook in work, Take one thread up And draw through both that minute. To make a treble-half or short, Get first the stitches three Then put your thread once over And draw through all you see. For triple, o’er three times And here we have the stitches We need in merry rhymes. Now good friends, take a copy Of our latest needlecraft And with these few directions Just try & make a draft From paper into lovely lace You’ll see some patterns grow, And all your sad and bitter thoughts, Like fleeting clouds will go. Published in Augusta, ME Needlecraft Magazine July 1924 The Rhyme of the Stitches.doc
  11. Hi, I have a thread motif pattern I downloaded from a Russian site. I am completely baffled from row 8 out. I can't find anything that explains what the rectangles are, and I have no idea what the long like with 7 hash marks is, though it could be a DoubleTreble but that isn't what it looks like to me because there are no gaps in the bars that surround the mesh. That could be due to blocking though. And help would be so appreciated. Thanks. Dianna
  12. So, who's at Stitches East? I'm so excited...I'm taking a course with The Crochet Dude tomorrow!
  13. My biggest problem since I began crocheting a few months back is getting the right amount of stitches in my work. I'm constantly having to pull out rows of stitches because I get to the end and I'm either over or short one stitch in my count. I would like some help clarifying any rules that exist that may help me get better at ensuring I have the proper amount of stitches, for example: If a pattern tells me to ch 1 at the beginning of a row, does that automatically mean that I need to skip the first stitch closest to my hook and proceed to the second one over? Does that "ch 1" always take the place of that first closest stitch space? Some times when I get to the end of a round and have to slip stitch back to the first stitch in that same row, I have trouble deciphering which the first stitch actually is. Should there always be a one-stitch worth of space between your last stitch of the row and the one you're slip stitching to, or at other times should the one you're slip stitching to be immediately following your last stitch in the row? Also, if you've already ch 1 at the beginning of the row, do you make sure to skip that ch 1 space when you slip stitch at the end? Do you ever slip stitch to that ch 1 you originally made? When counting stitches, you never count the loop on your hook, correct. . .? I hope that made sense. . . Any other tips anyone can offer would be appreciated!
  14. I am trying to crochet the basketweave cap pattern on the knots of love website. https://www.knotsoflove.org/resources/patterns/ Here is an excerpt from the section I am stuck on: Round 7: Chain 2, work FPDC (front post double crochet) in each FPDC, dc in each dc around. join (36 FPDC + 36dc) Round 8: Chain 2, work BPDC (back post double crochet) in each FPDC; work FPDC in each dc [read as FPDC in subsequent rounds] around. join. (36 BPDC + 36 FPDC) Round 9: Chain 2. Work BPDC in each FPDC; work FPDC in each FPDC. join. Round 10: Chain 2 work BPDC in each FPDC; work FPDC in each BPDC. join. Round 11: repeat round 10 When I get to Round 9, there seems to be a mistake. It says that both FPDC and BPDC are to be worked in the FPDC of the previous row. This does not seem correct. also, it leaves out the BPDC in the previous row. Sorry if this is confusing. I hope someone can help. thank you.

    A few questions

    Hello, This is my first post and I'd like to start by thanking you for a wonderful resource. I just learned to crochet after 30 years of trying and this forum has been a big help. I've seen some posts about the subject I'm going to ask about but not quite the same question. For my 2nd afghan I decided to try a ripple pattern and I started with the pattern on attic24. I found it too difficult, as a newbie, to translate how she refers to stitches and the American way. So I decided to switch to the pattern at handcraftingwithlove.net/yarn/pat-ripple.html It's worked out well and my sides are even! Yay! I decided I wanted to put edging on it and that's when I ran into difficulty. The sides are even but my stitches are a mess on the side. Are the stitches along the sides supposed to be distinct enough to be able to do a run of SC down the side? I have a hard time getting my hook into some of them. I must be doing something wrong. Also, I'm not quite sure how to handle the change of colors. I'm doing fine picking up the new color but what then should I do with the tail of the previous color and the tail of the new color. I tried knotting and then weaving in but the knots bump out. It seems like though that if I don't knot the sides get loose. I'm wondering if this is why my stitches along the sides are so messy. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm really enjoying this new hobby and I'm hooked (no pun intended) on buying yarn. Thanks! Lisa
  16. Hello fellow Villagers, I need help. I'm about to embark on a big project, for me as a beginner. I'm going to make a blanket for my mom. The yarn is already on order: it's Debbie Bliss EcoBaby Organic Cotton, in a lilac shade. My mom only wants one color and (unlike me) doesn't like lots of holes in her work. I picked up crochet because of the holes. lol Back to my mom. One color, one pattern, nothing too complicated. I was going to do it entirely out of shell stitches, because this is very beautiful, but I kept messing it up and having to go to my crochet teacher for help. This, just with the yarn I picked up for the scarf I'm making which is the exact type and color as the ecobaby that's on order. I should also warn you that, even with stitch markers on both ends, I still have trouble knowing where the end of the row is, and sometimes end up with a crooked project and having to rip back. So it needs to be VERY uncomplicated. I've even been thinking of a simple granny square. I have "The Granny Square Book," and I could adapt any of the colored squares to one color, just using the closed designs. Then sew them together. That might be my best bet, something small to work with, just a square. What do you think? Fretting, Chris

    Crochet Crown

    Here is a crochet crown I made to wear in the booth at the CGOA Chain Link conferences and Stitches events this year. It's made from Filatura Di Crosa's New Smoking yarn in Silver. This is the crown with some white paper inserted in the middle so you can get a better idea of the stitch pattern. I'm going to try to take better pictures tomorrow, since these don't really show just how absolutely sparkly and divine it is! I stiffened it with a boiled cornstarch mixture. It's quite sturdy.
