  1. Hello, I'm newly returned to crochet after 40 years. I'm working on a dollhouse project and some miniatures. I wanted to crochet the mom a nice shawl and the baby a blanket, plus some floor rugs. I'm having trouble deciding on the thread and hook. My dollhouse is smaller than the usual 1:12 scale and is instead the 1:24 scale (1/2" = 1'). I've tried some small Perle Cotton (sz 8) with a 1mm hook, and even though the thread is soft, it appears too big for my scale. I had some sz 20 Tatting thread on hand and tried it using the 1mm hook but the thread basically is too stiff, standing up instead of wrapping gently around my tiny babies. I'm considering Perle Cotton (sz 12) but don't know if that would make a difference. Any other ideas or suggestions? I would really appreciate your input! Thanks, Erica
  2. Greetings, I have an old 1940 chair doily with a horse design. The pattern used a size 12 steel crochet hook and #50 cotton thread. Size 13 x 16". This is way too small a gauge for me to see! I want to change the pattern to a #10 cotton crochet thread and a size #7 steel hook. (or the proper size for that thread) to make the pattern more eye friendly. The piece originally stated 291 beginning chains for a piece measuring 16" across the back. Of course I can't do that many chain stitches, yet when I count the "blocks" in the pattern, which are double crochets, I tried 96 blocks, the horse doesn't come out exactly right, the pattern doesn't quite jive. What do I need to adjust in the pattern to make it work? Is there a formula to use in general when using larger threads and hooks? Thanks for your help. :-)
