  1. Hello! I am very new to crocheting. I have been a knitter for the last 30 years. My mom has always preferred to crochet. She is going to be 80 soon. After a recent hospitalization, we decided to make a quilt together with my 14yo daughter. After looking for a while, we came upon Ellen Gormley's triangle pattern found here: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/triangles-afghan The pattern calls for 3 colors. However, I found a picture (attached) that shows the same pattern but using 6 colors. The pattern also specifies worsted weight, 5.0mm needle. Both my mom and I have tried to do practice triangles. And they are not coming out like the pictures. 1. The holes in ours are way larger than the holes in these pics. The hole comes from creating a ch3 followed by a 2dc. I tried decreasing it to ch2 instead but the holes are still too big. 2. I'm thinking tha worsted weight yarn may be too heavy for what was used to create the red and blue blankets. I would LOVE to get your help for: 1. How to make the holes smaller. 2. What kind of weight yarn may have been used in the 2 pics. This blanket is special for us. I would love us 3 to create something beautiful as well as the memories to go with it. Thank you for your help! Sofia
  2. Hi, I found this beautiful modified virus shawl on YouTube. Having done some other virus shawls in the past, I though this would be a piece of cake...not so. The crocheter has a very thick accent (Russian, I think?), and I'm finding it hard to understand, even with closed captioning. Also the written pattern nomenclature is something I've never seen before, and it's also confusing to me. There is no chart. The main problem is that once I get to row 8, which is the "loopy" row that creates the "base" of the 4-row repeat, the math just doesn't come out. There seem to be 31 doubles into which the pattern has me "fit" single crochets for only 30 doubles, thus leaving one extra. I've been crocheting for well over 30 years, and have yet to find a pattern that can "beat" me! But, there's a first for everything, I guess. I love this pattern, and have found the perfect yarn for it. I'd hate to give up now. I know there are many of you who'd be able to figure this out, and I'd appreciate your help very much. Thanks in advance, PuppyMom Here are the files: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dN3YUD7Mvm4 Youtube http://interunet.com/crochet-shawl Written pattern
