1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Joining granny squares on: November 08, 2014 07:08:56 PM
I'm working on a project that will be similar to this: http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/originals/b7/ee/89/b7ee8922db675b9e0c6e24af80ffe006.jpg

I can't find that particular pattern, so I made my own and just made some granny hexagons. They are all different colors, I'm pretty much using all of my scrap to make different ones. My question is this: what do you suggest as the best way to join them? I was just going to crochet them together will a slip stitch, because you won't be able to see it from the one side so it won't matter what color yarn I use. But then I thought that might make them too heavy and I should sew them together. But then I thought I didn't know what color yarn to use because you will be able to see it and all of the colors are different. Any suggestions are welcome!
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?
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Need help with a pattern on: April 13, 2013 08:13:51 PM
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!
4  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?
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / type of yarn to use on: November 16, 2010 06:58:18 PM
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.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Can someone help me translate a diagram? on: August 22, 2010 05:22:43 PM
I found some really cool stiches on a website but they are in diagram form. I am not sure if I can do this correctly, so for this pattern, would someone translate it for me? Thanks...here's the link:

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Confused on a sweater on: September 02, 2009 07:54:33 PM
I need help with this pattern: http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=4001&cps=21191

I am trying to do the sleeves and I don't get it. I am doing the 18 month pattern. So I chained 17, turned and hdc across the 14 hdcs, chained one and then went back across the 43 I was doing before. That's where I get stuck. It says to turn, but there is no turning chain. Also, I am trying to picture this in my head and it seems like it is only going to come out with one sleeve. Can anyone help me out?
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Prices on: August 05, 2008 06:20:24 PM
I'm sure this has been asked sometime before, but I'm kind of new.

I am going to do my first craft fair in a few months and I have no idea how much is reasonable to charge for things. I crochet, so I will have scarves, hats, possibly some stuffed animals and baby blankets. I don't know if I have enough time to make adult sized afghans. I don't want to be too cheap, but I also don't know what is a reasonable price for things. Can anyone help me or point me in the direction of getting some help?
