1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Double crochet in a tube? on: August 14, 2010 02:18:22 AM
I need help making a simple tube out of double crochets. I have been looking thru different videos and posts, but can't find any answers.

I know there are two ways - one is to join each round with a slip stitch and continue on, and the other is to simply work in a spiral.  What are the exact methods for doing this (I'm left handed if it makes a difference) and which one is better?

Your help is appreciated. Thank you.
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Please help with tawashi pattern on: June 24, 2010 06:07:47 AM
I found a pattern for a tawashi the other day on craftstylish.com, but I'm been having trouble with it. The url is http://www.craftstylish.com/item/43848/how-to-crochet-a-tawashi

1. Ch. 21. Sc in the 2nd ch from your hook, then sc in next ch, hdc in next 2 ch, dc in next 12 ch, hdc in next 2 ch, sc in last 2 ch. Before completing your last sc (i.e., before the last yarn over), switch colors as detailed below.

2. Row 2: Working in the back loop ONLY, ch 1, sc in first 2 sc, hdc in next 2 hdc, dc in next 12 dc, hdc in next 2 dc, sc in last 2 dc (changing colors with last sc), and turn.

Okay, how do I sc and hdc in the last 4 dc when I only made 12 dc in step 1? I know there must be a simple explanation, but I am soo bad at reading patterns! Lol.

Since I travel a lot, I made this pink cozy for my pink ds lite. It's made of pink wool yarn to match my ds, and it's secured with velcro.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / How to make wrist warmers smaller? on: November 07, 2009 06:42:46 PM
Hi, I have some wool yarn that calls for a 5.5 hook and I would love to make some wrist warmers. The problem is I have incredibly tiny wrists and forearms (about 5 inches around). Should I use a smaller hook and how small is too small?  Huh

I definitely need some help please, and thanks in advance.
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Stitchalongs / Romantic/Anniversary Stitchalong on: October 28, 2009 08:42:03 PM
Hi everyone, I received a winter-themed Mickey and Minnie cross stitch pattern last year for my wedding. My husband and I both worked for Disney so I never had any time to work on it.  However, my husband decided to join the navy so we sold our home and I moved back in with my family while he's at basic.  I thought during the 8 1/2 weeks he's gone that would be a good time to finish my cross stitch. But its 40x40 and looks really big! I'm not at home now but I will post a picture of what it should look like but I only have part of the border done.

If anyone else is working on a romantic or anniversary themed cross stitch you're more than welcome to join me. I've made several xstitches but never one this big!
