1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheting in rounds on: August 02, 2005 10:45:23 AM
As a knitter, I have been finding certain things in crochet a little hard to understand.  Forgive me in advance if this is a stupid question, I have been crocheting a ton of hats lately, but mostly in hdc and dc.  I bought a stitch bible (which cost me $30, so I am determined to get some use out of it),  so that I can be a little more creative, however, how do you adapt a stitch pattern to make it work in the round?  Like when there are 4 or 5 rows etc, do I just work 4 or 5 rounds following the directions for the rounds, and then start over, and what about the foundation row, since the first few rows are just increases, am I supposed to make allowances for that? 

I guess I am just really confused, and not getting the concept, so any help would be appreciated, thanks!!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / camo color yarn on: July 07, 2005 10:53:54 AM
OK so I know that Red Heart has camo colored yarn, and I LOVE the look of it, however, I have no intention of working with the stuff right now.  Does anyone know of any other companies, (not craft store yarn), that make it, I need to order me some ASAP.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Hat issues, what am I doing wrong? on: February 28, 2005 07:23:27 AM
It's been a long time since I have crocheted, but I know the basics pretty well and can wing a hat and some simple stuff.  Anyway, I was trying to follow this really cute hat pattern (sorry don't have the link with me and I am at work), and I am having issues with the top staying flat.  Does this mean that I need to do more increases around.  I have the requisite numbers, but instead of being a round circle it is more like a wavy circle.  I frogged it about 3 times yesterday, but I won't let it defeat me.  The pattern is basically crocheting 3 double crochets into one of three double crochets, and 3 double crochets into the chain space.  It is a beginner pattern.  If I can find the link again I will post it.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks!!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Snood? on: February 17, 2005 10:11:54 AM
I don't know what this is called in American speak, but I am looking for a pattern for a simple one that I can make in an evening or two.  I guess a description would be a head covering and neckwarmer in one.  Or I guess I could just make a tube for the neck part and pick up stitches on the back part for the head.  Would really appreciate a pattern though, if anyone has one.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Vogue Knitting on: January 13, 2005 08:49:51 AM
Would anyone happen to have a copy of Vogue Knitting Summer 2000 (I think) magazine?  If so please let me know, it is the one with the girl with the long white dress on the front. There is a pattern in there that I REALLY need.  I started knitting this twin set from that issue when it came out, and then I lost the magazine, I pulled the pieces out of the bag last night when I was looking for some yarn from my stash, and I only need to finish the sleeves, and it's all done, I really want to finish this if I can, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cables on: November 08, 2004 12:46:43 PM
Does anyone have any idea where I can get cable patterns from(what I mean is just the cables themselves, not a pattern with a cable in it, does that make sense?)  I just need to look at some cable patterns for a scarf I am designing. I have the Vogue Knitting Book, but I don't like ANY of the cables in there. 

I tried searching but don't exactly know what to put in the search title, I tried cable patterns and it came up with a bunch of patterns that have cabling in them.  Sorry if none of this really makes sense!!
