  3. Hi, I recently started crocheting over quarantine using videos. However I have recently started using crochet patterns and I don't understand one thing: What does it mean when there are brackets? For example (3dc, 2dc in next stitch) I'm not sure what I do for them. Thanks, Amily

    Yarn for skirt.

    G'morning. I thought of making a skirt for myself and was wondering if certain fibers could possibly become deformed in the back of the skirt where you sit. Does anyone know which yarns might be more suitable for such a project? Thanx. My thinking is bamboo or silk but am not sure even of those. And silk would cost too much.
  6. I'm not a huge fan or multi-color yarns that have abrupt color changes but I liked the way Caron's Latte Cakes looked so picked up a few cakes. I have since decided that I really like it! Now, what happens a lot of times is I find something that I really like and it then disappears! I know it's a Michaels exclusive. The first time I got it there was a huge center aisle display and I bought some again last week. Since the "buy 2 get 1 free" sale was still on I went back yesterday for more. There was none. Some of the cake style yarns were in a bin they told me was clearance but none were the La
  7. FYI Just got my Herrschners Fall catalog with Fall Yarn Sale listings and on the back a new yarn called Premier BASIX, introductory price $2.99 a ball of 359yds/200gm/7oz. 49 rich colors.
  8. Hi everyone! My name is Rosie. I used to knit but started crocheting a couple years ago. I fell in love and quit knitting altogether! I jumped right into amigurumi and have created many of my own patterns! I just can't stop! That being said I am also unable to afford my yarn most of the time. I use it as therapy for several issues. It is my one true love outside my family. I just wish I knew where I could get inexpensive yarn. At the moment all I can afford is Wal-mart.... but am trying to find an online store that I can afford and has a good selection of colors. Anyone have some advice?
  9. 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
  10. Hello crochet friends I really love this pattern and its great for using up left over balls of yarn, Looks great in thin or thick stripes Here is the written pattern http://www.bobwilson123.org/afghans--granny-squares.html I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I did making it
  11. Hello everyone! My name is Asher. Recently I became an affiliate with Amazon. What this means is that I help sell stuff for Amazon in exchange for a small commission. After looking over recent demographics, I have found knitting and crochet to be incredibly in demand activities. Thus, I built a website specifically for selling knitting and crochet products. We have many different kinds of hooks and needles, a large selection of yarn, and a few books to help you learn more about the art. These products are mighty cheap and they aren't going to be around forever! If you are interested in purchas

  13. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm making a doll right now which I want to have loose curls. Various articles says to curl the yarn around something then use glue to keep it in place. Bit hesitant to do that as I would imagine that would leave the "hair" feeling rock hard. I was thinking the best idea would be to split the yarn but not sure if the wisps would stay. What would you say would be the best option? Thank you in advance
  14. Most of the crochetting I do is amigurumis. I buy red heart because it is easy to find, cheap and I think it's stiffness is actually a plus for the toys. I have noticed difference in quality depending on the color, some could be very plasticky and some felt nicer. But the last two balls had slightly different thicknesses, enough to ruin my project. It was a very small doll. It was a promised gift so I modified the pattern a bit and it looks odd but ok, but now I am left with all this yarn that I can't combine well with other yarns of the same brand. Has anyone had that problem before? I know i

  16. Hi! I am new to crocheting and had a question about yarn. I am making a baby blanket that calls for 300g soft acrylic, 4 ply worsted weight yarn. I was wondering if I could substitute this wool yarn for the acrylic- https://www.craftsy.com/knitting/supplies/cascade-220-superwash-yarn/32069 Will it make the same size baby blanket? Also, when it says, "Weight 100," does that mean 100 grams? Thanks! I really appreciate the help! Here is a link to the pattern: http://www.jaydainstitches.com/resources/Baby_Blanket_in_Fan_Stitch.pdf
  17. 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
  18. Hi! How are you? Happy sunday for all of you. Welcome to this special tutorial that I prepared for you. The best way to start a day is making this. I am going to teach you how to make a Yarn Bowl that is very beautiful and useful at crochet or knit time. See the tutorial here: ↓↓↓ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAH64RQj3pU The necessarily materials: *100/150 g of cold porcelain. *A mold that can be a bowl. *Scissor. *Oil or flour. For colour it: *Acrylic paint (If we want a uniform color, add it to the beginning). *Coffee + Vinilic glue (When dry, apply two hands with the ai
  19. I love working with soft, yummy yarn, but have experienced it "unraveling" as I work with it and "splitting" as I crochet so I am only picking up a thread or 2 instead of the whole strand, Very frustrating. Any advice in technique or yarns that don't split like that?
  20. Hello all! I am very new to crocheting and am in need of some assistance with a blanket. I would love to make a replica of this (I've attached a few photos of the blanket in question) but I cannot figure out what kind of yarn this is. This was a gift to my family from a friend of ours about 12 years ago. I'd love to know if anyone can identify the type of yarn that was used for this. It is a very heavy blanket (we call it the coma quilt - it is certain that you will fall asleep when you have it on top of you). I've reached out to our friend about it but she cannot remember what kind of yar
  21. Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well. I made a pair of bunnies. The first in a long line of new bunnies that I have come up with. I recently created a facebook page to display all the creations I have made over the years.

I need 25 people to like it so I can get a dedicated link. Thanks all.
  22. Hi, I am new here and are just learning to crochet. I am from New Zealand and we have quite a small selection of reasonable priced yarn. I have been looking to purchase some from Amazon or another online shop, but are unsure of the quality of the yarns they offer, as most of these are available in the states I was wondering if your guys could let me know what yarn products are nice and soft and good value for money, this will give me a good idea of what I should order. Thanks for any info you are able to pass on to me. Andrea
  23. Hello, I'm new to this community and am seeking some help. I discovered a wonderful afghan on a favorite show of mine. I would love to crochet it very badly but can't find a yarn that's similar enough to the colors that I need. The pattern I can figure out (unless anyone has any ideas on that as well) I've posted a cropped picture of the afghan. I'm sorry that it's a little blurry but you can get still see the colors. I would like to find something as close as possible because all put together it's perfect for me. Thanks!!!!
  24. I was hoping to finish this quick bulky soft blanket. Kids have spring break and I wanted to finish while at the park during their activities. Well, I ran out of the yarn. I go to Michael's, Hobby Lobby and Jo Ann's in town today with no luck. Even seeing sales on the same brand just not the right color. I finally had to order some online. BUMMER! I'm sure you ladies have been in the same boat. I'm so disappointed - I had extra time to finish my blanket. I'm even on vacation for once from work. Hoping my yarn arrives in the next few days.
  25. I'm thinking of making a crochet sweater as my next project but the pattern suggests a 75% cotton, 25% viscose yarn in DK weight. What would be the benefit of using a yarn with viscose in? How would the result differ from using 100% cotton? Thank you
