O gosh! Thank you so much! I got my yarn and crochet needle, repeated the chain video 20 times and I finally got it! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love these videos.

11683  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Baffled Knitter (yes I know that this is the crochet section) on: February 20, 2007 06:41:55 PM
Okay...so I am basically a newbie to crafting. I have minimal sewing skills, so imagine how elated I was when I decided to search on how to do different crafts: sewing, purses, knitting, crocheting, and etc. So, I have soaked up all of the wonderful information on here, especially with my newfound favorite craft knitting, but yet, I am still utterly and completely baffled by how to do crochet. No matter how long I practice and how hard I try to get the concept, I can't get it! I just wanted to fume and let out my frustration here.

welcome!  if you're starting out red heart and caron simply soft acrylic yarns are good to learn on, and they don't feel half bad if you're wearing them either.  wool is fine too, but not as cheap and sometimes itchy.  my recommendation is to go with a simple worsted weight, bulky yarns and novelties can be frustrating if you're just starting out.

I am currently making the Dayflower scarf right now with Red Heart and although I am loving how it is turning out right now, it is a little rough and itchy. So next time I go to Joanns or Michaels (soon) I'll probably check out the Caron Simply Soft. Thank you so much for your help.

Hi there! I'm a newbie and I would just like to know what type of yarn is good for "wearables," like a slouchy hat. Right now, as a beginner, I would just just like yarns that could be found in local craft stores like Michaels and Joanns. I don't want to start online yarn shopping until I am actually a good enough knitter. Thanks.

Where'd you get the slipper pattern from? It's so cute!

That's how I used to do it and I would have issues (like on Lion Brand's Bunny Blanket thingy)- and was told I was doing it wrong, that slips are purl wise.
Boo! Pattern makers should say! You hear that future knitting pattern writers of the world?!... Say which, darn it!

Ah...thank you. Well, I did some more research and the stitch should be slipped purlwise, with the yarn in back.

Hello! I am a beginner knitter, so I am sorry if this seems like a silly question. In this pattern I am doing: http://www.knittingknonsense.com/dollydolphin.html When it says slip 1, do I slip it knitwise or purlwise? Thanks!
