  1. I'm searching for at least one skein probably 2 of Bernat Super Value Ombre Yarn in the Pizazz colorway! I need it for a blanket project for my ailing Aunt. It's a discontinued yarn and I cannot find it for sale ANYWHERE Please Help. I willing to pay for the yarn and Shipping. This is what the yarn looks like.
  2. 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!
  3. My grand mother crocheted this tablecloth for me in 1973 when I graduated from college. I would like to know what the pattern name is and try to find a copy of this pattern. I am trying to put together all the history I can gather on crocheted work that I have, for future generations to know as much as possible about each piece. Thank you.
  4. I am trying to figure out the vintage "Double Buckle Slipper Pattern/No. 4706" from freevingtagecrochet.com. The instructions for the Upper Section, Row 4, read: "Work in s c, decreasing...2 sts on each side of toe (space evenly)." What does that mean? It is not the center of the toe section. It says "center of toe" when working those stitches. Do I just guess where the big toe starts and the little toe ends and dec 2 sts there? Thanks for your help.
  5. So I'm working on the back piece of a UK vintage dress pattern and am at the point where I shape the armholes but can't understand what I'm supposed to do. It's a straight piece with 80 stitches and it says Slip stitch across 6 tr, 3 ch = 1 tr, work to last 5 tr, turn (Can't figure out if I'm supposed to repeat the slip stitches at the end) Slip stitch across next 3 stitches, 3 ch = 1 tr, work at last 2 stitches, turn (2 stitches decreased at end of each row) Can someone put this in US terms that will make sense to me? Thanks!
  6. Hello, not exactly a new member but new to the posting part so here goes nothin' So I have some questions involving a vintage dress pattern I am making, In this pattern the dress is worked in one piece, meaning there is no sewing the pieces together afterwards which is great! One downside I've encountered is after finishing the bodice, it seems to be a way inelastic which makes getting in and out of it a 2 person job. I had the great idea of installing a zipper but since I've already finished the bodice I have no idea how to do so without possibly ruining the whole garment. I've thought of maybe cutting the stitches after securing them by machine stitching two parallel rows of zigzag stitches similar to how a button hole is sewn, then cutting and sewing over the stitches once more with a bias tape or something similar before attaching the zipper. I've read a bunch about steeking which is done while making the garment, which I obviously didnt do. I guess all of my anguish is caused by my not thinking beforehand lol. The bodice isnt super complicated in its construction, its made of several rows of double crochets followed by a row of single crochets around the neckline, finished with two rows of slip stitches worked in back loops only. My main questions are, Is it possible to cut into the bodice without the whole thing coming unraveled? Are there any precautions I can take to ensure this doesnt happen? Is there any hope? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance! (I've attached pictures of the entire garment so far, the bodice section I would install the zipper into, and the neckline)
  7. Hello I'm new and I've never done a forum. So please be patient I'm sure I'll pick up quick.
  8. If someone knows where I can find the pattern for this I would be so greatful. I prefere it to be free but willing to pay if not too expensive. Also, there is another one if would like to have and its also a bohemian shawl. Its the second pic. The 3rd 4th and 5th pics I also am looking for the patterns. I havent been able to find patterns for these ANYWHERE. Please Help! Thank You!
  9. 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
  10. I picked this gem up from one of my thriftings- https://www.pinterest.com/pin/66287425739840614/ (just for reference, I don't have a "Pinterest") on eBay they always scream "VERY RARE" but I see them ALL the time listed. I purchased two pkgs for maybe, err 50c 2 yrs ago, when I was collecting crafting items wondering what craft I will choose to follow, before I found crocheting to be the best so far I discovered the packages just today while I was going through my "stashes" of goodies, I am going through my pre-Christmas panic as to what is getting made for whom (still in a quandary- family if you see this, you may all get kitchen mitts and hot pads lol) I had no idea what purpose these were for, but saw them as "interesting" and as I've said before, I just adore old things. SO- my question is, are these for holding ruffles on a doily edge in place as you spray them with the starch or whatever? I assume that is what they are for? or are they for some other product? I just think the oldies 50's style packaging is so neat. I don't even want to open it!! I cannot believe they are being listed for 12 dollars on auction sites! The price on pkg says 19 cents. I think people WAY over-estimate the value of some items... anyway- so are these for doilies that we crochet and need to hold the ruffles in place til they are starched enough? Or ..? I haven't googled enough about them, just wondering if anybody here has used them before? if so, I would love to hear about your experience with them!
  11. 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!

  14. Hello to all who read this. alittle about me and my love of crochet. Born in alaska in 1968 to a military family, I was to say the least a hyper child,where oh where was ridalin. At the very pinnicle of my hyperactivity my Nana could no longer stand having me buzzing around her home like a bull in a china shop.While she was knitting one day I asked her to teach me and she happily handed me my first set of mint green plastic warped size 8 needles and a ball of red heart super saver aqnd i was off and running, while remaining seated.I was quite happy. Then in the 6th grade i found finger crochet with a little girl down the stree,living in england at the time,mom noticing string tied to the legs of her coffee table, never said i was a neat freak heee hee, she gave me my first size g aluminum hook and some super saver yarn and i was off.i then found stitchery,plastic canvas,and counted cross.All from female friends who i hung out with. Mooooooving forward in time I am now 40 years old and My mother has just been diagnosed with breast cancer and is scheduled for a full radicall mastectomy.Keeping her spirits up was primary goal,and with Nana having passed a few years back and my sister and brother living elsewhere i took up the mantle of best friend and broke into her stash grabbed Nana's knitting needles and ,guess what, a skien of Red Heart Super Saver in navy blue,and we knitted and laughed and I was off and running . When my 27 year career as a hairdresser came to a scetching halt and I had to go on disability find a sword to best the monster that was depression and time.that sword came to me in the guise of a brand new set of bamboo knitting needles and crochet hooks and a set of steel hooks. and with the help of my good friend the Internet I have found some new passions 1. I no longer knit as much due to arthritis in my shoulder and parkinsons type spasms in my arms. So i have started crocheting about 8 hrs a day(it keeps the tremors at bay) 2. I have become a pattern junkie.Any patterns the older the better. 3.I have a great passion for crocheted barbie gowns especially the vintage elaborate gowns (looking for the gowns Barbara Striesand wore in "Hello Dolly" hint hint) we are now up to date still single and crocheting as much as possible still twitching and happyily living in San Antonio Texas. I am always looking to chat with new people its the hairdresser in me and the fact that I am a Gemini Thank you for your Time , Patience , and curiosity. friend to the world, JIMMIE
