Oh my god - that kicks so much ass.

I wish I could crochet / knit in graphs=/ I'd be able to do so many cool things if i knew the technique.

Wait am I supposed to back crochet up the smaller first leaf, or the second leaf?

tulipohare, I think when it says sc in backside of chain, it means to only insert your hook in the back loop of the chain instead of both loops.

          here's your chain from a top view
  front loop------>()<------back loop
Hope that makes sense.
 By the way, can you post a tutorial on the kitty weed toy?


THANK YOU! Smiley I wasn't sure what it meant, I'm still getting used to reading patterns.

you guys have NO idea how excited I am to make these toys for my kitty and for my friends kitties. i'm a major f'ing pothead, and my kitty should love the ganja too. Cheesy

Yours turned out awesome!

I've tried making one for my kitty at least three different times but I can't understand the pattern..

The part that says 'Leaf Two: Ch 7, sc in 2nd chain from hook and in each remaining chain, sc in each stitch on the backside of the chain, join with a sl st to the 1st sc and fasten off.'

I understand everything except for the 'sc in each stitch on the backside of the chain'.

what part of the chain? i'm way confused. help.Cheesy

TulipOhare, changing colors in crochet is one of my all time fav things to do.  You can work directly from a graph (like a cross stitch pattern) if you use a HDC throughout.  A SC makes the pic to squat.  All you have to do is draw up a loop of your next color in the stitch before you want the color.  Carry the yarn along inside the stitches like your trying to work in a tail.  If you have any questions or need any help,, FF to PM me or shoot me an email!

Super cool, thanks. Smiley

I just wasn't sure what the specific technique was.. But I realize now because i'm a cross stitcher too. Cheesy

Does anybody have a good pattern for learning how to crochet with various different colors?

I want to crochet something into something directly, but I don't know how to do it easily from the charts.

I mean charts like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60891.0, and making stuff like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=55433.0 (like the mushroom cozy)

Please help! I'd love to learn your techniques...

I know Groovy Crochet has a lot of patterns up but it's an old site and most of the photos don't work. I know the site isn't maintained anymore..

I'm a web developer and would love to take on the project of redoing the whole site.

Does anybody know if it would be wrong of me to do so? The site hasn't been updated in years it seems like.. But a lot of the patterns aer awesome.. They just need to be on a site that is actually usable.
