  7. Thank you Hostess Stakreem for the three lovely items I had in return for my makes in the September swaps. DOLL with purpose in her skirt and bag - a pincushion and sewing notions. Fabulous make, Linda!! Just love her hair! FRUITBASKET - crochet. Gorgeous - but I'm using it for my general necklaces and earrings! Too good for fruit! ALL CRAFTS - a keeper in Autumn shades Stackreem made this beautiful brocade patchwork for jewels too. Just the thing when I am travelling! And thank you Linda for the RAK - ribbon paper puncher, glitter, and - I know everyone is dying to ask - Cypress Knees to decoupage or otherwise decorate

    September Swap makes

    Linda set the themes - a DOLL, sewn or knitted, but with a purpose. Mine has a long skirt to store plastic carriers in. And a crocheted FRUITBOWL in autumn colours. This is mine. A bit of a challenge, but great fun!

    Help understanding pattern

    Hello I am making the arty owl in the latest edition of kniTting and crochet. I am quite new to crochet and my first project (which I am still doing) was a granny square blanket but I fancied a smaller project as a change. I used you tube videos to start me on the granny squares and am just querying whether I understand the pattern correctly for the owl as this is my first time using a written pattern. I completed round 2 (1dc,2dc in next st) to end. 18 sts. Round 3 says 2dc, 2dc in next st to end. 24 stitches. If I do 24 stitches that doesn't take me to the end of what I did on the 2nd round so does it actually mean just do 24 stitches? I find the patterns a tad confusing!!!

    Granny Squares

    Hi all I want to make a cardigan out of granny squares this summer for daughter to wear in winter. I've picked my colour scheme and design, however I have always struggled to join together granny squares. Can anyone recommend any tutorials or websites where the instructions are clear simple and leave a nice finish please? Thanks
  11. I'm teaching myself to crochet using Issue 68 of the magazine by I'm struggling with the flower headband pattern. When making the headband itself Rows 3 and 4 seem to increase the number of stitches each time, with no decreasing. Row 3 is miss stitch, dc, miss stitch, (1tr, 1ch, 1tr, 1ch, 1tr) into one stitch and Row 4 is the same but with a different starting point. No matter how I try to read it I'm adding stitches all the time. Is there an error in the pattern and one row is supposed to have decreases in it somewhere? Thanks for your help.

    Southern Kisses Shawl

    Southern Kisses Shawl by Kathy Lashley. .although I have made it smaller to suit DD#1..AND she refuses to try it on 😧 Here's link to pattern.. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/southern-kisses-shawl
  15. It feels like I've been crocheting this forever but really it was about a month I used sock wool so it was quite fine and its very soft. It was really tiny until I blocked it too so I'm glad the pattern opened up Now I'm off to clean the toilet mirror as there are speckles on the photo (Certain family members have a terrible habit of flicking water off their fingers before reaching for the towel here!) Will be wearing my new scarf on the school run later.

    City Neckwarmer

    Tada...second completed crochet project. I was at a loose end on Friday night after sorting out some of my DD's old baby clothes in preparation for #2..so was looking for something simple and quick to do crochet wise so I decided on this scarf. The pattern is from Ravelry and is by a lady called Donna Rutledge-Okoro and it's called the City Neckwarmer (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/city-neckwarmer). Edit: What is it with uploading pictures from my phone that it makes them all goes sideways??

PURSE: This is one of Crafty Nannie's famous coin purses- love the pussy-cat fabric and the fringe detail! STITCHMARKERS: These, with pretty blue glass beads, are from Knitting Queen! And a super RAK of a pink crochet purse from Hostess Stakreem! Great work, ladies! Thank you all SO much!

    Hello Fellow Crafters

    Hello, my name is Toni I have been crocheting for almost a year now & I am thoroughly enjoying it. In Feb I set up my own business and I am enjoying creating items for customers, especially when they ask me to make something I would have never thought of or something I have always wanted to make but never had a reason. My latest make, Lady Sylvanas Windrunner from World of Warcraft. I have a love for anime and games so I love making that kind of bits, I rarely do clothes for fear they may not fit hehe So stick to scarves and hats mostly. I also love making bits for my daughters. One especially loves everything dinosaur related and one is too young to have an opinion hehe. Hope to get to know you

  22. Hi all, I'm not too sure if this is the correct forum but I really need some help!. I started learning to crochet about a week ago and I have most of the basic stitches down but I picked up a copy of Knitting and Crochet because there was a really cute pattern for some Critter coasters but the wording has left me really confused. Rnd 2: 1ch, (1dc, 2dc in next stitch) to end. Join with a sl st to first st. 18 Sts Rnd 3: 1ch, (2dc in first st, 2dc) to end, join with a sl st to first st. 24 sts The part in bold is where I am lost, I put 2 double crochets in the first stitch but if I put 2 dc's in the rest of the stitches it adds up to a lot more than 24 stitches.
