11  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help with Moda Dea's free pattern on: March 01, 2007 09:05:10 AM
Hi all,
I go some yarn at the dollar store near my house.  It's Cartwheel from Moda Dea, so I decided to work an this free pattern from their website.  http://www.modadea.com/patterns/LM0173.htm
I checked the gauge and it seemed to be correct.  However, I'm not sure if it will turn out OK because I chose to make in size medium according to the finished dimensions given.  Unfortunately, it looks way to big.  Could it be that the yarn I got has not an even spinning?  some parts are really thin and some are thicker.  Has anybody tried to work on this pattern?  Any suggestions?  I'm afraid that if I do the small version, it would be way to small for me to wear it.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for reading.
12  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Family Circle Easy Crochet Magazine Spring 2007 on: February 08, 2007 06:11:46 AM
Has anyone seen Family Circle Easy Crochet Magazine Spring 2007?.  I love it.  I got it last night and has so many cute patterns that I want to try.  I am not too experience in crocheting, but are they as easy as they rate them?  Is any one interested in trying the boxy cardigan?  I want to try that, but using Homespun from Lionbrand since they are of the same weight, Bulky 5 and I have tons of them in purple too.
