Thank you!!! I'm very excited about this!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / ISO Crochet Penguin Jumper for Phillip Island Penguin Foundation on: March 06, 2014 05:37:57 PM
There are two things in life I love, crochet and penguins.

Okay, there is more than that, but people I know have sent me this link: http://www.abc.net.au/local/audio/2014/03/05/3957423.htm

about people in Australia needing sweaters for penguins and they are calling for knitters to make them. I tried to look up how to convert a knit pattern to crochet and it seems incredibly complicated. Does anyone have a foolproof method or somehow know of a crochet pattern that would substitute?

Ah, that makes total sense! So it ends up as an oval ish, with the foundation chain in the middle.

I am making a Triceratops for a friend's baby and I have started on the frill. Hopefully that will give you some sort of context for what I am doing. It's from a booklet I got from either Hobby Lobby or Michael's called "Crochet Animals Big and Small", so if anyone has that, maybe it will make this easier. I really am having trouble understanding this part of the pattern though. It reads:

With A, ch 27
Round 1: Sc in 2nd chain from hook and in each ch across; turn to work in unused loops of beginning ch, sc in next 26 ch-52 sts

I don't understand the bolded part. What unused loops are they talking about? Looking at the rest of the pattern, the total number of stitches get bigger and bigger, which makes sense since I am starting at the bottom (shortest part) of the frill and working toward the top. If someone could help me out, perhaps show me in pictures or something, I would be very grateful!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help with this turkey hat! on: November 22, 2011 06:54:33 PM
So I am making this hat: http://www.thisnext.com/tag/buy-turkey-gobbler-hat/ because a friend requested it and I am having trouble with part of the pattern. I don't want to post the whole pattern here, because it is for sale and I don't want to get in trouble, but the part of the hat that is the "turkey body" has this repitition:

Ch3 (counts as first dc), *3 dc in
same sp, ch2, 3 dc in same sp as
first 3 dc, skp 5; rep from *
around; join w/ sl st to top of
firstr dc (Ch3), finish off.

I don't know if it makes sense without seeing the rest of the pattern, but maybe someone can surmise it's meaning from looking at the picture. The question is, when it says to skip 5, are they talking about skipping 5 shells or 5 stitches? The same thing happens later in the pattern:

12. With Autumn Variegated Ch3
(counts as first dc), *5 dc in space
between shells, skp 5; Rep from *
around. Join w/ sl st

13. With Copper Eyelash Ch3
(counts as first dc), *4dc in space
between shells, skp 4; Rep from *
around. Join w/ sl st.

Are the talking about stitches or shells?

Thank you so much miss katamari! I did one of these for my niece last year and when I went to go to my bookmark to make another, it was gone! I will definitely be saving this and backing them up!
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: type of yarn to use on: November 20, 2010 11:21:01 AM
Everything I have read has said that cotton yarn is best though, not that it would be bad to use anything else. Is there a reason I have to use cotton? I really wanted to make these with some scraps that I already have instead of buying any new stuff.

I don't know why I didn't realize that Simply Soft is cotton. I have a ton of scraps of that leftover, so I don't need to buy any new yarn. Good. Thanks!

I am making some dishcloths for a friend. I don't need a pattern, but I was looking at some patterns just to get a sense of what yarn to use. Almost all of them say to use cotton, but I have a ton of scraps that would be perfect for dishcloths in...not cotton. A lot of "I love this yarn" and Caron Cimply Soft. Does it really matter that I use cotton for these things? She will be using them primarily as cloths to wipe her kids faces, not to wash dishes, if that makes a difference.
