  1. 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's very poufy, and it needs a strong border to make it feel more stable. After trying various things, I decided that a relatively plain border would look best. I took off in single crochet, doing blo every third row and doing 3sc in each corner. I'm on row 17, and figured I'd go to 20 or 21, with the last three all being blo. Now I've misplaced my 1.25mm crochet hook and can't continue until I find or replace it. I figured that was a sign that I should ask for some advice. I know the item will have to be blocked, but I'm not sure that blocking will even out the poufy squares and the border that's tight, making the sides uneven in width and/or length. Suggestions welcome. Since the crochet hook I was using apparently grew legs and walked off, I'm not totally averse to (waaah!) ripping all the border out and starting over.

    Coffee Table Doily

    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!
  6. 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!

    Is It Possible?

    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 with a sewing machine? Keep in mind this would all be done with lace weight crochet thread, so not only will making the pieces be time consuming but hand sewing them would be as well. Which is why I thought my machine sewing idea was brilliant. Does anyone have experience making whole garment with various pieces of crocheted "fabric"? If so any advice?
  8. 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 sitting on the back of my couch! Since then, I have made a couple more c2c's as gifts, a beautiful shells blanket, 2 cosy stripe blankets, 8 messy bun hats, 6 different kinds of scarves, fingerless gloves and a pom-pom hat! I usually have a few projects going at the same time and always have a tote bag ready to take to doctor appointments etc. This week I was approached to sell my latest throw blanket and I am still quite in shock that someone liked it that much and they were willing to pay for it! I had no clue as to what to charge for it, so I asked a few people in my facebook crochet groups and as always they were beyond helpful and very supportive! Money has been very tight for my family lately, so the money I made off the blanket really came in handy! It took me just over 2 weeks to complete the blanket and I only spent about $25 in yarn because I ordered a color pack with 17 skeins from a store in the UK! When I named my price of $150 for the throw blanket, I was certain she was going to try and talk me down and maybe even say that was too expensive but she didn't do any of that- she just said, "OK, great!" She told me that she is opening a shop in a very pricey shopping area and wants to use the blanket in her storefront window-Talk about exciting! lol I am looking forward to being a part of this group & getting to know you all!
  9. 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!

    Lacy handbag

    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
  11. 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) Ops! I just realized I posted the 1st version of the round one, where I can see that I made a lot of mistakes as the number of rows and in the stitch itself. Still, you can see how different it looks from the original. I don´t know if it´s possible but I´ll try to attach the last try on that pattern, much better but still way different from the original.

    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
  14. 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 beginner, but not intermediate either. Uses basic crochet stitches, but with a tiny hook and thread...let's go with easy. Yarn/Material/Tools Required (specify which will supplied by designer and which by tester): I will provide the pattern (of course), and the tester must supply crochet thread size 10 (in two colors, I have done mine in blue and white), crochet hook size 0, satin ribbon is optional, and seed beads are optional. Tester Information Number of Testers Needed: 2 Approximate Time Required to Complete Project: 1 month Deadline: May 10th Tester Experience (do you want testers to have prior experience, submit references, etc.): No previous testing experience is needed. Tester Responsibilities (what exactly do you want testers to do and what information do you want them to supply to you): Double check my counting. Make sure I use the same abbreviations throughout the pattern. Make sure that we are getting the same finished measurements. So that it will fit a newborn, and not a 6-mo-old. All of the steps and instructions make sense and can be followed. Any other opinions about the pattern itself (maybe you have an idea that might work better than what I have written out). Any Special Software Requirements (Microsoft Word, pdf reader, etc.): Able to download and read pdfs. Compensation Please specify what compensation you are offering to pattern testers (none, free copy of final pattern, monetary fee, etc.). Free copy of final pattern, and first opportunity to test any future dresses that I will design.

    Newbie that love to crochet!

    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.
  16. 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 identifying stitches like this. I am enclosing MY work that I want, and also an example of what people keep giving me which is NOT it

    I'm Texchanchan from ...

    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.

    Bridal veil

    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.
  19. 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 TShirt blankets, lol, Dog Collars, Dog Beds, Baby Blankets. I absolutely LOVE it! When I started making my "Uncommon"Dog Collars, I would embellish them with all kinds of different charms, beads, anything that I thought looked good and was fun! I wanted to make necklaces for my dog collars that attached and detached easily. That's when my first Crochet project started. When I posted that, I had people who wanted me to make them bracelets and necklaces for them to match. Crazy, isn't it???!!! So now I want to learn how to crochet, WELL!!!! I can make it through a small bracelet, but I really need the ins and outs of beginning one and ending one. I would appreciate all the help I can get. And I guess right now, I'm looking for what I need as far as tools, so I have those things before I start. Thank you for having me!!! I'm so happy I found a place where I can get my questions answered . And if you want....check out my website http://www.isabellabluedesigns.com..... I've attached a couple of pictures so you can see what I mean by a Collar Necklace. I did these but had a difficult time beginning and ending them..... But right now, I just would really like some advice on what tools do I need. For instance, is there a board that makes it easier keeping things organized? Plyers, etc....... Thank you, again!!!! I'm really happy to be here!!!! Renee

    My Crocheted Necklaces

    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.
  22. 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?
  23. There are hundreds of beautiful doily diagrams on the internet, but how do you know what hook size and thread combination to use to make them when they aren't listed? Is it just trial and error?
  24. Has anybody seen the source for this old bedspread pattern? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/369928556866103408/ It's rolling around in my brain, but I just can't make it stay still and catch it LOL I think in the picture on the pattern, it looked more square than here where it looks almost like an octagon. TIA!

    Soul Sister Doily

    Finished this one on the 4th. The graph I used was of unknown origin and is available on my blog if you'd like to have it. I used Aunt Lydia's #10 thread in Antique Rose and White and a size 1.65 mm hook.
