I've tried to add a second row, but my yo yo starts to look more like a granny square, it's d/c for 23 on the second row, yes?

Finally a pattern I can read. LOL, how do you keep them flat?

lovesclutter, I'd like to answer your question but I'm not entirely sure what you mean?? I crochet the yoyos separately and then I join them by using the Hexagonal braiding technique.

zippecar - Use double crochet for the first and second row. Start the second row with 3 ch (this counts as your first double crochet) and then crochet 23 dc.
 
MY YOYO PATTERN:

1 - Chain 4 and Slip Stitch To Create A Ring
2 - Chain Up 3, Double Crochet 11 Times. (The first chain of 3 counts as one Double Crochet Automatically giving a final of 12). Slip Stitch at the end to complete the circle.

You can stop here, or add additional rounds, doubling up the stitch count each row.

TRADITIONAL YOYO PATTERN:

A yo-yo is 16 dc worked into the ring with no chains between them.

A double yo-yo is 2 rounds, 16 dc on the first round, and 2 dc in each stitch on the second round for a total of 32 dc on that round.

A triple yo-yo is 3 rounds. There are two ways to make these. One uses 12, 24, 36 stitches. That would be 12 in ring, 2 in each st, then increase in every other stitch to get 36. The other is made the same, continuing the basic yo-yo. It starts with 16 dc in ring, then 2 in each, then increase in every other stitch - 16, 32, 48.

I've just realised that one gets British and American crochet terms, so to diffuse any confusion, when I refer to a double crochet this is the stitch I'm referring too:

I'm Pleased to Announce!!
I'm working on a tutorial which will show how to make the afghans featured in the first post! It will be available within the next day or two.

Thanks Katara, now that I know what I'm doing wrong I can variate the pattern and get different sizes and textures, I'm officially in. Will post pics later today of those I have made this week.

This is fun and while I not sure what projet(s) I will use them for, this is the perfect way to use up little bits of yarn. Thanks for that link too. Very clear without being a video.

A tutorial would be great!!! I learned what little I "know" from my great grandmother and I'm starting to realize that she taught me a mixed bag of British and American, which is probably what she learned from her mother... Grin

So my yo-yos were a hit with my niece while she was in town...she loved the colors and how they were just the right size for her hand....she did enjoy pretending they were cookies!

TUTORIAL: How to crochet yoyos together as you go along

1. Crochet a traditional single round yoyo (16dc)



2. Start crocheting a second traditional single round yoyo until you have made about 8dc. We are now going to join the first and second yoyo. Hook the stitch that is on the crochet needle through to the first yoyo. See pictures below





3. Continue crocheting the second yoyo as normal.


4. The 2 yoyos are now joined  Cheesy



5. This yoyo shows were you'll join the other yoyos



6. Continue in this fashion:





7. The fourth yoyo needs to be joined at 2 places:





I hope this all makes sense! Please ask if something is unclear.

@lovesclutter - Glad to hear that you have figured things out and that you are having fun! Smiley

@AuntieKar - It's always fascinating to get a child's perspective. They have wonderful imaginations!
