1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Beanie hat help? on: February 13, 2008 10:36:21 AM
I am working on my first hat.

I am making it in solid white.
Am having problems with the pattern with this.......... Keeping cont of Stripe Pat, inc 6 sts on every row, as before to 48 (54-60) sts, then every following alt row to 60 (66-72) sts. Cont in Stripe Pat, work 9 (10-12) rows even.

Do I just keep doing the pattern of 6, just adding one single crochet each round? And how far do I go with that?
As you can probably tell, I am a beginner crocheter.
Thanks for any help!    Beth
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Where do you keep your working yarn? on: January 29, 2008 01:12:17 PM
That is, the yarn that you are using for the project that you are working on at the moment.
I have a tote bag that I keep my balls of yarn in. The project I am working on uses 5 different colors. Everytime I go to use the next color, it is all tangled up with all of the rest of the balls.
How do you keep the yarn you are using from being all mixed up with the rest?

Thanks, Beth
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Blocking with Amore yarn? on: January 23, 2008 01:14:31 AM
I am pretty new to crocheting and am in the process of making an afghan from Crochet Today mag. I have been seeing posts about blocking and what kind yarn you block. The amore is 80% acryoic and 20% nylon. Do I block? If yes, how?
Thanks in advance!      Beth

I forgot to add that the afghan is made from a form of granny squares.
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Ribbon Bag-Anyone seen it? on: January 17, 2008 09:50:20 AM
I just recently saw a tote that was covered with ribbons in a magazine. Now I can't remember if I saw it in one of my mags (I have tons) or something I was browsing thru in the store. I looked like a white pre-made canvas tote with ribbons (lots of them) sewn vertically on it. Has anyone seen this anywhere?
Thanks, beth
5  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: Crochet Today Happy Hearts Afghan-along on: January 17, 2008 09:25:48 AM

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Hi! Newbie here. Need help with a granny from Crochet Today Magazine on: January 16, 2008 02:35:15 PM
If anyone has this mag and can help........
It is the Happy Hearts Afghan on the cover & pattern on page 74.
I am starting on the Solid Square. Have the first two rounds done. It looks like they are basic granny square rounds.
When I get to the third row, I am getting confused.
Between the other rows it says to sl st to the corner and then start the next row there.
Starting row 3, no mention of moving to the corner.
Round 3 says.....
Ch 3, dc in next 4 dc, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc)  in next ch 2 space, [dc in next 7 dc, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch-2 sp] 3 times,dc in next 2 dc; join with sl st in top of beginning ch- 4 corners, 11 dc on each side.

Help! I'm so confused!  Do I start the first stitches in the spaces or the stitches themselves? Also, i only see 3 dc in a row and it says to dc in the next 4 dc.
Can anyone help?
Thanks, Beth
