1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: Newbie alert--Magic Ring Help on: February 07, 2015 07:23:31 AM
Magic ring completely stumped me for a long time. Here's the guide that finally helped me "get" it:

Honestly, I think most of the instructions for magic ring get way too complicated in their description of how you hold everything. What you basically just need to do is create a loop of yarn that you first pull one stitch through, and then just create however many single crochets you need. Then just pull it tight.

Apologies, stringsandthreads, I removed the link. To clarify, though, the pattern I used was a modication of an instructables pattern and the rest I drafted on my own, not anything from you.

Thank you two for the links, they were very helpful!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Ripple pattern name? on: October 25, 2014 10:45:00 AM
I'm trying to find a pattern for this:

It's beautiful, but when I search for crochet ripple or wavy patterns I just get variations on the chevron pattern. Is there something else this is called? I can probably cobble together a pattern on my own, but figured I'd ask around craftster first.

Thanks!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Granny stitch decrease? on: October 25, 2014 10:25:58 AM
Hi crocheters, I'm hoping you'll be able to help me with this stumper:

I've become enamored with these wristwarmers:
https://img0.etsystatic.com/004/0/6217476/il_570xN.388761758_1jo3.jpg

and have been trying to replicate the pattern on my own. The bottom part of the wristwarmers seems to just be granny stitch. So I thought I could just crochet in the round using granny stitch. But then I realized I'd need to start decreasing as you get closer to the wrist, and I realized that I have no idea how to decrease in the granny stitch pattern.

I played around with this a little on my own, and my less than perfect solution was to skip an entire set of dc's, which generates a bump. I've done some internet searching and haven't found anything helpful.

So craftster crocheters, how would you go about decreasing a granny stitch?

For soft acrylics, I love both Vanna's choice and Bernat Super Value.
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: zig zag blanket help on: September 21, 2014 07:09:14 PM
I often find with afghan patterns that I just have to chain as much as I think I need (instead of what the pattern says) (although equally often the blanket ends up being even wider than I thought it would be).

As for the buckling/curling, is it along the chained edge? How many rows have you done? I find you've got to give it a number of rows before it lays really flat. One other thought: make sure you're putting the right number of stitches in the top of each zig zag. If there are too few stitches, it'll buckle.

Thanks!
I think the eyes are what really nailed it: a little sleepy, a little squinty, a little scowl-y.

I second the Ravelry suggestion. I've found lots of Adventure Time patterns there.

Jexxican-

It's not lined. For the basic pattern, I just scaled up the Smaug pattern by using a size P hook and using doubled-up worsted weight yarn. And just add on a few extra rows at the end to extend the neck so there's room for the drawstring. Then I used a small f hook for the eyes, horns, eyebrows, and nostril ridges.
