1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Luna Lovegood Scarf-My Take-PATTERN ADDED! on: December 13, 2008 03:58:24 PM
I'm loving this pattern and I'm halfway through, but I'm stuck...

After finishing the first half, when the pattern says "join yarn to other side of beginning ch, repeat rows 1-6 on other side," I'm a little confused.

Does this mean to start at the opposite end of the beginning chain (the end of the beginning chain) or to start at the beginning of the beginning chain? Hope that makes sense.

Another question. Once I join the yarn, do I chain a bit then DC in fifth chain from hook?

Sorry if these seem obvious, but I tend to overthink patterns a lot!
2  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Short n Sweet question on: August 08, 2008 10:34:01 AM
Hi Everyone!

I'm sure this is answered somewhere, but I can't get the search function to work for me today.

I just finished rows 2 through 9 on the short n sweet (I'm making a medium). The directions then say to repeat rows 2-9 throughout. I'm not sure what that means - when do rows 10 come in?

This may seem like a crazy question, but I always seem to overthink my way into confusion with crochet patterns. Thanks!

Nevermind, I answered my own question! Well, the pattern did. It clearly says to cast onto R needle I just missed it.

Thanks, fishie!

Thanks! But that gave me another question...

I see how that cast on works when you're starting out (the backwards loop cast on), but what about when you're working in the round.

The needle with the working yarn is on the right, so exactly how do I cast onto the left needle?

It feels like I should be casting onto the right needle..

I'm a little confused about what the pattern means when you get to the arms...it says to discard the PM and cast on more stitches. I'm confused about the cast on part....do I just take the working yarn and cast it onto my left needle? Confused. I do continental knitting if that helps anyone help me, haha. Thanks!

Thanks, everyone!

I started the boatneck style, but had to frog it because it was too big for my narrow shoulders. I'm just going to attempt the regular neckline. Since this is my first sweater, I just need to go slow and see how things fit. I have a bunch of Vanna's Choice acrylic for this one in a light purple.

Okay...so I think I realized that we were supposed to create the collar in whatever pattern we choose...or in whatever rib pattern we like, but it just said knit around. Am I right in that assumption?

When it says "knit" it just means go around in 2x2 rib, or whatever?

Hi everyone!

So, I casted on for the boatneck and this is my very first sweater and one of the first knitting projects I've ever done - - so I have questions!

First, I noticed that the boatneck in some of the photos is ribbed, but the pattern just says to knit around. I'm getting garter stitch. I'm doing the increases and everything, but....am I doing this wrong?

I'm on row three when you start the increases, but I'd like to frog now rather than later. Thanks for your help...I'm excited about this project!

9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Your first machine, a buyers guide on: February 18, 2008 09:42:00 AM
This was a very helpful guide - thanks for putting it together!

I'm just starting out sewing and inherited a discount store Brother machine from my late grandmother. I really can't stand it - especially after watching people work on some sleeker machines at a sewing class!

So, I'm shopping around for a new machine. I know Bernina and others don't post prices and you have to go to a dealer, but how much would a basic model from Bernina run? Assuming it's new. I'm curious about Janome as well.

I've got plans to go to some dealers this weekend and test some things.
