1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Family Circle Easy Crochet Lacy Top-Need some help! on: April 22, 2008 06:46:55 PM
I know several people made this in a crochetalong awhile back but I didn't find the answer to my question.  I'm sure it's me and not the pattern as no one made mention of it.  But if anyone who has done this pattern could help me out I would appreciate it! 
It says to chain 52 and you will be working even on 51 stiches.  Well, you skip 2 from the chain to do a hdc so wouldn't that by 50?  Anyway, my problem comes when I am doing the petal pattern repeats.  I never have the right amount of horizontal and/or vertical petals (16 and 17).  Does the turning chain count as one, am I skipping a stitch somewhere  Huh?  It usually says to skip the first hdc and go into the next, but I am never ending up with enough stitches.
I have ripped this out 3 times and can't figure out what I'm doing wrong!  If anyone can decipher my rambling and can help, please do!!

I was inspired by this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=143297.0 by missjesswinkwink

This is a little bar closet in my den (I wanted a spot I could close off it it didn't turn out well!).  It's a little rough but it's the first time I've done something like this.  The base color was one I bought in the oops paint section.  Check out my Arizona Tea bottle I used as a reference.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / New to Decoupage, quick question please help! on: June 29, 2007 07:58:09 AM
Hi! I'm ususally in the crochet board but am taking up a new thing!  I am planning to decoupage some cardboard magazine holders, have already cut out pics and glued down with modpodge. 
question: Do I brush over the stuff I've already glued down with modpodge or is there something else I'm supposed to brush over the glued pics? Would appreciate any help!

I want to do something like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=145935.0
and have my picture and went to here http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro/ and had it graphed and have no idea what to do with it (where to begin? how to count it out? what kind of stitch? and the questions keep on coming!
Can anyone help me out? Huh
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Are these the same pattern? on: January 15, 2007 05:37:22 PM
I love this afghan (first one on this page) http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/patternFinder.fcgi?craft=Crochet&search=Search&search=Search&searchText=afghan&start=60
which they want a few bucks for the pattern. 
Is this not the same thing? This is one of Lion Brand's free patterns. 
(Sorry for the link, I wanted to put both pics side by side but I couldn't get the other one to do right.)
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet-a-day Calendar? on: October 07, 2006 06:24:06 PM
Hi. I was wondering if anyone had found the 2007 Crochet-a-Day Calendar?  I had preordered mine back in June from Overstock.com.  It was supposed to release in July, then moved to August, then Sept and to date has not been released.  Has anyone else had this problem?
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / To increase or decrease? THAT is the question on: July 17, 2006 03:49:27 PM
I've been crocheting for awhile so I guess I would be in the "advanced" category as crocheter but I have only worked from patterns.  I seem to have a problem with veering off and "making it my own".  I have seen some of the great amigurumi that you crafty craftsters have made from scratch and would like to be able to do so myself.  However, just where to start is my problem.  I know how to increase and decrease but how do I know where and when (or how many to do and at what point)?  Does it have to mathematically connect (every so many stitches) or is it a random thing?  So say I wanted to make a pear shape and I started out with oh, a ring of 6 stitches then increase 2 in each stitch to make it larger.  If I continue with even stitches (12 around) it turns into sort of a "cup" shape.  If I keep increasing to make it larger, do I need to increase every stitch? every other? and the same with decrease?  Sorry for the rambling question.  Any help is appreciated!
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Peaceful Pastels Rainbow baby afghan on: June 20, 2006 09:12:53 PM
This is a project I just finished tonight!  I have 2 friends who are pregnant and due soon (one within the next 10 days!) so I have been crankin' away at this afghan! It is super soft, made with Bernat baby coordinates.  It actually worked up fairly quick (you use 2 strands held together).  I am pretty proud of it  Smiley

Let me know what you think!
Gotta go start working on another... Smiley
9  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Cupcake help! on: April 15, 2006 01:15:56 PM
I am a little confused on the cupcake pattern.  When you get to the "shape armhole" part and you are doing the rows where you alternate hdc2tog, are you supposed to ch 2 at the beginning of each row?  And if so, do those count as a stitch?  I am coming up short somewhere.
