3  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: Left handed = mom in tears on: March 23, 2006 05:16:48 AM
Okay, she ended up going along the foundation row and starting her 3 rows of DC. Then she started her shell sittch. now she has gone around one short end of the scarf. Now she is trying to go across the opposite long side of the scarf. The problem  is now this side looks like an entire row of the "butt" loop of a crochet chain and not the V's of a crochet chain. When she crochets into the "butt" loops the result is a slightly (but very noticible) hole in the middle of the shell stitch where it fans out. This side she is having to make up her own pattern to get the shells to be symetrical which works out but it's very hard to do the shells into the butt of the chain. I guess this would be the better explanation. Last night I was too frustrated to be coherent. lol Cheesy The shells are ending up looking backward on this row when you look at the scarf from the RS also.
4  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Left handed = mom in tears on: March 22, 2006 08:50:54 PM
My mom is making the one skein scarf and halfway done with the pattern. She is left handed. The 3 rows of DC and the shell stitches worked fine. Then she reached the end of the first shell repeat where the shell curves around the short end of the scarf. Well this is where it gets complicated. Apparently when you crochet there is a rs & ws like knitting.. I knew that but didn't know what it ended up looking like until tonight. I am a new crocheter (thank you SO much i FINALLY got how to crochet) so I do not understand how to "reverse" a pattern for left handers. Is there any way I can figure out how to even out this pattern with it looking symmetrical? My mom is crying and super upset screaming how she's going to throw it in the trash when she's spent all this time on it. She refuses to learn how to crochet right handed because she's been crocheting left handed for 2 years (all scarves.) Any help you could give me would be absolutely fabulous. I feel awful as it is because she's so upset and I cannot figure out how to help her out besides teaching her right handed (which is not an option at the moment.) I would appreciate ANY suggestions you wonderful people might have.
5  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: The Blob on: March 21, 2006 05:24:06 AM
well I picked up crochet a little while ago after two years of knitting. For me, I came up with a blob too and it was driving me nuts. I just walked away thinking I could never crochet and went back to my knitting project. I picked it up about a week later and just did a chain of 10 stitches. I just started working that chain (through the butt loop Cheesy ) and when I finished the foundation I just stared at it to see where I go next and just through practice I finally got it. It took me a while but it did click. I just have to say that practice and analyzing how a stitch works in crochet worked for me. Good luck! Don't give up, crochet is really fun and fast once you get it.

ok this will sound dumb...  Cheesy but how do you line a crochet bag? Is there a good site (preferably with visuals) that explains this? Its been a long day so maybe it's in the HH book and I just missed it. Thought I'd ask Smiley

magic loop is not scary at all!  i love love love it.  (look at my Jaywalker's above...MAGIC LOOP).  just google "magic loop"  and you should get a lot of hits.  it's really a faboo technique. Grin

How did you end up converting the pattern to magic loop? I am looking to do this pattern next, but wanted to use my newly learned magic loop method. Smiley Is it just a matter of pm in certain places or do you just start doing the pattern? Sorry, I'm a bit confused on how to convert patterns to magic loop. Thanks!
