And some pretty beads that were in the worl'd hardest container to open.

That looks like the container from a Kinder Surprise toy and they are the hardest things in the world to open - not sure why they would do that in a kid's 'thing' but they do!

5362  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Working behind ch? on: January 07, 2007 01:23:49 PM
That's a hard one to answer without actually seeing it but after reading over the pattern and looking at the picture, this is what I think it means:

ROW 3: 2 sc in first st *working behind ch sp 3sc in each sc across to last sc, 2 sc in last st, ch 1 turn

After you have turned and put your 2 sc in the first stitch, skip the ch 2 and make your 3 sc in the next sc but make sure that the chain 2 from row 2 stays at the front of your work and doesn't slip to the back (thus you are now working behind the chains), skip the next hdc and ch 2 and work another 3 sc in the next sc and continue across in this manner - I'm thinking it is supposed to look ruffly.

I'm probably the only person on Craftster who would have to ask this but what is a BuildABear?

Are you limiting the number of people that can join?

I am planning to limit it to 24 for two reasons.  First, it's the first swap I've ever organized and I don't want it to get too big and unmanageable and second, if it gets over 25 I have to have a co-organizer.

That pattern is very nice.  Are you using similar colors or something different?

Good luck!

Great job on the elephant square and the stocking!  I love the colors.

Oh my, don't give up instead try something a little simpler until you get the hang of it.

Read the pattern carefully to find out if your beginning chain 3 (or whatever amount they say) on each round is supposed to count as your first stitch and, if it is, then be sure you skip the first stitch after you chain - otherwise you're going to be adding a stitch each row.  The 'hole' appearance at the beginning of a round is natural because of the chain and skipping a stitch but, in the end it will look okay.

Also, count lots - I've been crocheting for over 30 years and I still count lots and if it's a pattern I'm not familiar with, I count stitches as I'm crocheting to be sure I'm doing it right.

Make sure you don't put 2 stitches in the same spot when you aren't supposed to - it's a common mistake but will make things difficult - I did it a few days ago but, fortunately, discovered it before I was too far along and only had to frog a little.

The longer you crochet, the easier it will become and you will also learn to fix some mistakes instead of having to rip the project apart  Grin

Great throw!

I agree that large granny afghans are easier to make than ones with small squares because there is no sewing together.

I've only make rectangle ones and have never had a wonky center but sure would like to know why it happens with square ones.

Great hat!  What a wonderful idea to make a warm baseball cap.  I bet my sons would even wear this  Grin

Great scarf!  I really like the beads on the tail.  I hope your daughter wears it with pride her entire high school days!
