Hi my fellow knitters, I am working on a bookmark patten that I found on line. I am using cotton thread #10, but the sides are curling up and it looks so loose. I'm trying to make my stitches as tight as I can. What am I doing wrong? This is the link to the pattern http://grannys-garret.com/pattern/leandra_e.pdf
Hi everyone, Has anyone tried the free pattern from Lion Brand for the crocheted socks? http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/cwe-joansSocks.html I am in the process of making them but they are coming out very stiff. Am I doing something wrong? Also, can someone help me? how do I make a decrease? It says "Dec 1 sc"
I was checking Moda-Dea's website and they have beautiful free patterns, but their yarns are SO EXPENSIVE (at least for my budget). How do you substitute yarns?? can someone help me?? I would love to make myself this top http://www.modadea.com/patterns/LM0173.htm and this jacket: http://www.modadea.com/patterns/LM0242.htm and so many others but. How can I find a more reasonable cost yarn that can work with the patterns?? I would appreciate your help.
