Crocheting since...

  1. I have been crocheting for over 60 years and now make baby clothes in my leisure time. Here is a recent set I made with size 10 thread to fit a newborn baby or reborn doll. I would love to see other clothing made with thread. It looks and feels different than clothing made with yarn.
  2. This pattern link was in an email today. Cute thread snowflake: https://blueraindrops.com/crochet-pineapple-snowflake/
  3. This link was in today's CrochetKim email. It's pretty enough to make me tempted to try thread again. https://www.draiguna.com/2019/10/winter-realm-snowflake.html
  4. If this is in the wrong place, please let me know. Here's the story: I started this *pattern* over 40 years ago. I don't remember where I got it, but I do remember it was supposed to be a canopy for a tester bed. I wanted it to be a coverlet. I never finished the original start. Fast-forward to June 2017, and a friend started a group that meets at our library to knit and crochet. I brought an example of my 40-year-old work, and we figured out the pattern. 621 squares and lots of seaming later, I started trying to figure out what kind of border this thread crochet coverlet needed. It'
  5. Wishing you all a Happy Easter! Enjoy your day with family & friends celebrating His resurrection. A couple of Easter Crosses I made for special friends.
  6. A Pleasure by Patricia Kristoffersen. This turn out so pretty! I really enjoy her patterns.
  7. Practicing my doily making skills. This is Springtime by Hazel Henry. I really have to learn to block better. Practice, Practice, Practice.
  8. This was a challenge for me. I found this pattern in a booklet (Coats Sewing Group #920 Bold Crochet Motifs) a friend gave to me a while back. It took a couple tries to start. It uses UK stitch terminology, but US measurements. There are no specific instructions to actually join the motifs, only instructed to follow the photo. Simply titled "Coffee Table Mat". I chose to make a smaller doily, just to see if I could. Yay!
  9. Looking for this pattern that my sister-in-law and I saw on a Facebook thread crochet group very recently. The crocheter said that she finished this recently from a pattern she found on Google or Pinterest some time ago, and said that was the only information she had. I've spent more hours than I'd like to admit searching for it this weekend, and my sister-in-law has put in quite a few hours herself. Any help appreciated!
  10. Hiya, So while cleaning out some of my crochet stash, I had an idea I thought was totally brilliant. The problem is that I don't know if its completely possible and kind of don't want to try if its not going to work. Anyways, I rediscovered a single motif pattern that I've managed to adapt to be able to crochet it into an endless pattern in nearly any shape, so my next thought is whether I can turn this motif into clothing. I mean this as in does anyone know if it would be possible to crochet pieces of a dress/shirt/skirt pattern from a sewing pattern then sew the edges together wit
  11. Hi, everyone! My name is Paula and I'm pretty new to crochet! I have been teaching myself how to crochet since this past summer and I swear I learn something new every day! I have learned the most from watching Youtube video tutorials! I find them easier sometimes to learn from them than an actual pattern but I am getting better at reading patterns, I just like to follow along with a video to help in case I get stuck! No one in my family was ever into crafts, let along knitting or crochet and I've always wanted to learn crochet and how to quilt. My first project was a gray C2C which is sittin
  12. I have been crocheting thread doilies for about a year now, and have found that I am unable to work in all the starting stitches in a starting loop with some patterns. The most recent doily said ch 6, join to make loop, ch 16 sc in loop. I could not fit 16 sc in the loop! I tried changing hooks, still didn't work. I'm using 10 thread 1.5 mm steel hook. Grrrr and thank you for any tips or help you all may have!
  13. Let me introduce my lacy handbag Once I found out I don't have any cream coloured small handbag to match my dress… So I decided to make one. I crocheted the same squares as I used for my daughter's dress. I made the bag's base of felt so it won't stretch. The flower is the pin because I couldn't decide if I want the flower or not
  14. Hi there! I´m new to doily making and I´m having the hardest time trying to make it look like the pictures from the pattern ! Mine are often lose, so I tried to make a tighter sticht. Still, no success. I changed the needle size as well, but aparently it still doesn´t look like the picture at all. I´ll attach some pictures so you can have an idea of what´s my problem. I crochet just fine, making scarves, amigurumis, bags and even a dress once, but doilies? OMG, those are hard !!! Please help me ? (the pictures with blue background are mine versus the original from websites and magazines) Op

    Candle jars

    I made some jar covers for my candle holders. Two with purple ribbon were gifts. Three among the shells (my souvenir from France) are on my window sill. Four white with pineapple pattern were gifts for my daughter's teachers for Teacher Day (that was yeasterday here in Poland). The jars are recycled yoghurt glass containers
  17. Pattern Information Pattern Description: Newborn sized dress done in snowflake motifs, and crochet thread (but don't let that scare you away! The stitching is simple, with sc, hdc, dc, htrc, and maybe a few trc). The dress was originally designed with Disney's Queen Elsa in mind (from the movie Frozen). Pattern Style (written, symbol chart, etc.): Written pattern, with lots of pictures. Pattern Photo (optional): Can be seen on my facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/FamilyBugs/photos/a.165008696925751.38068.149171735176114/619073261519290/?type=1&theater) Skill Level: Not quite
  18. Hellllllo!!!! I've been crocheting for a few years and I love it!!! It all started by accident. I got my youngest daughter a teach yourself crochet and knitting kit from Walmart. She wasn't too thrilled and the kit sat on the counter for about a week. On a whim I decided to try it and the rest is history. She's now 20 and cringes at the thought or picking up any type of hook.
  19. I have spent hours upon hours searching high and low for this. I keep getting links to "Sunburst Doily" and other patterns that kind of look the same as mine, but are not it when inspected closely. I received this WIP in a bag of crochet novelties/nick nacks at the hospice thrift store. It is quite old and came with satin/silk thread balls(?) I will gladly pay for a pattern, IF it is the same stitch pattern in the pink section. It looks like it could be a motif - *maybe*. It is of a floral puffy design with a cute picot green connected to it. I am a noob at this so am not skilled in id
  20. Howdy. I'm Texchanchan, and have been an inactive member a long time. There is a password mixup, but it seems to know me now. I like to do both yarn and thread (lace) crochet. My grandmothers taught me -- using the terms they learned in 1900 or so, so I had to get used to modern (US) terminology when I really got into it! Of all needlework, this is the one I do most. Learning all the time. TCC There's probably some kind of sig attached, but I have forgotten it.
  21. Has any one considered making a bridal veil? I was talking to my mom about it and she suggested using sewing thread because you can get large cones of it, less likely to run out before I am finished. I have 2 teenage daughters so I am pretty sure I could get one done before either of them attempts marriage but have no idea where to start. I was thinking something pretty simple maybe just a large filet square or rectangle and then add a design around the edge.
  22. Hi! I am very new to crocheting! I tried making a bracelet, it took me about a week!!! lol, but I LOVE it! I love working with my hands so this is perfect for me. I have SO MANY questions about what kind of threads to use, needles, how to end my bracelet, the list goes on! First of all, I think I need to know what tools I need. Are there boards that are helpful, like macrame boards? Just a list of things I need to have. And I'm not looking just for beginning stuff. I would like to get everything so I can get started. I already have a shop on Etsy, Isabella Blue Designs, and I make THEE BEST TS
  23. Hi all, I wonder - what's wrong with me? Am i nut???? A few days ago I found this cute cupcake pattern: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-ckukInBs-_8/U-OaT-KCryI/AAAAAAAAMWc/JTAXhk1z4xM/s395/micro%2520cupcakes%25205.jpg I made the cupcakes in thread.... So here they are, my micro ones!
  24. A bunch of necklaces that I designed and have been trying to sell. These I thought would also be pretty embellished with little decrative pins. I thought about crocheting little flowers attached to pin backings for these. This one I want to embellish with watch gears and glass pearl beads to make it more "Steampunk-ish" I thought these would also look nice with small charms/pendants hanging from the center petals.
  25. Am looking for this pattern. Took the photo of the one my aunt has on her kitchen table. She thinks she has had it for at least 30 yrs or so. Can anyone help me on this?
