Ok, so I was really curious and looked this up on about.com (hobbies & games - crochet) and it seems to me our DC and your DC is the same stitch. ( I think your knitting is very different to ours though... even within Europe it's different. Huh)

I am quite a 'tight' crocheter (sp? Roll Eyes) and that probably means the holes in my work is smaller thus finished piece 'tighter' but I think it also depends hugely on the thickness of the yarn/size of hook as to how your felted piece comes out. As small a hook as possible for the yarn you're using, or double yarn for bigger hook will do the trick, I think!

.. but crocheting goes so much faster...

It does doesn't it...?! And I thought it was just me being pants at knitting!! Cheesy

Those are insanely fabulous bags... I love the red with the pink stripe. I've been wanting to try felting for ages but am having a bit of a problem finding ACTUAL wool... but you've inspiried me so I'll probably have to resort to ordering some  Undecided ...And then there's the problem of having no hot water to my washing machine..... guess a trip to the laundry mat could be in order.

Ok, so I was really curious and looked this up on about.com (hobbies & games - crochet) and it seems to me our DC and your DC is the same stitch.

I'm so confused!!!  I'm an American, living in France with access locally only to UK/British crochet books---except for the American one a friend just sent me and of course everything online.  I feel like I relearn each stitch each time I work a new pattern!!!  And then, to top it off, a Swedish friend gave me a translated-from-swedish pattern---no idea which system to use--is it UK or USA or something else?  She's not sure either. Oh, joy!!

From what I can tell, and this international chart, which may or may not be correct: http://www.patchworkcrochet.com/foreign.htm, a US Single Crochet is a UK Double Crochet.  Is your DC a Nordic one?, is that maybe the difference or why they are the same?? My head hurts.

Anyone else with this problem?  Any suggestions or helpful hints?

thanks, merci, grazie, tak,

Modkatie, yes... I think when I wrote that I was unknowingly comparing the Nordic stitch to the American thinking the British one was the same as the Nordic one...  that is why I thought they were the same... sorry for the confusion... 

From what I can gather, the nordic and possibly continental Europe stitches (you'll know that better living in France) are the same and the British and the American ones are the same.

Thanks for the clarification, isn't it fun being international?!?!?    Tongue
I'm working on a little guide card of stitch instructions for myself---one side US, one side UK, hopefully that will help as I learn new patterns, rather than having to dig through two different stacks of books and guides when I need to check an instruction.  And forget it if continental is yet another set of terms---my brain can't take it, I'll just have to stick to other patterns!  ha ha
