BACK LOOP ONLY (BL OR BLO)
Instead of crocheting in the entire stitch
which is both loops on the top of the stitch... you only catch or go through
one of the loops when you do each stitch.
The back loop (bl) is the loop farthest from you.
Watch the video:
encyclopedia of knitting and crochet facts"
Some stitches are worked in the front or back loop of an existing stitch.
To remember which loop is the front and which is the back... just think about the front loop being the loop directly in "front" of you. Then you will remember the back loop must be the one farthest away from you.

Re: ABC Blanket
I watched your video on YouTube on how to change color on the ABC Blanket. I am making my first one and I want to know about the puff stitch. I can make them but how do you keep them on the front of the blanket. Some of mine will move to the back making it look like I have missed a puff. I will push it through and then it will move again. I want to know what I may be doing wrong.
Thanks, Cheri Blair

Thanks for watching the video.
The single crochet puff stitches are worked from the wrong side of the afghan.
To make the stitch you yarn over and pull up a loop for a total of 4 times which
will leave 9 loops on your hook. Now yarn over and pull through 8 of those loops.
Then yarn over again and pull through the last two loops.
When pulling through the last two loops I push the puff part of the stitch away from me...
toward the front of the work (remember we are working from the wrong/back side).
Try tightening your tension on the last "draw through" on the stitch and see if that helps
the puff stay on the right side of the work.

What does it mean when the pattern says sc crochet over the stiches.
<< Reply >>
How you single crochet over stitches depends on the pattern language.
You may be instructed to single crochet over the next 5 stitches which could mean to work a single crochet into each of the next 5 stitches. OR, you could be instructed to work over a stitch into a row below the normal working row.
Is the pattern you are referring to online?
What is 3 sc in next chain?
I'm looking for video that will help me to see what is 3 sc in next ch, will you please help me?
<< Reply >>
See if this video helps.
This video shows how to work one single crochet stitch at a time into individual chain stitches.
To work 3 single crochet stitches into the next chain means you work all three single crochet stitches into the same chain stitch.

Do you have the video on how to do the puff stitch letters.

I do not have a video showing each of the puff stitch letters. The entire alphabet is graphed in the ABC afghan pattern that is posted on the Crochet N More website courtesy of Caron International.

Thank you hard to find videos or info for this .
I just want to thank you for posting this pattern. I am a relative beginner, and definitely a beginner to working with thread. I felt really good about completing my first project using thread and actually having it look good! It doesn't look as good as yours, but I am really pleased ;)
Thank you again,

Hello, I’m trying to make your easy dog sweater (the one Schotzi is wearing in the photograph) and I’m confused by round 22, “Hdc in each st and ch around”. Does that mean around the 16 chains and the entire top of the sweater, or just around the 16 chains and the stitches under the 16 chains. . . ? I’m fairly new at crocheting and get easily lost. Would you help if you can, please?
<< Reply >>
That means you work a half double crochet in each of the half double crochet stitches as well as into each of the 16 chains you made. This round begins forming the neck of the sweater.
words can be short and easy to speak,
but their echoes are truly endless.

is a wonderful addition to any crochet library.
I've had numerous requests over the years of what to crochet for boys.
Crobots are definitely the answer!
This 96-page book is filled with numerous types of Crobot patterns as well as well-illustrated instructions for the
crochet stitches, assembly stitches and other embellishments used in the patterns.
The patterns are well written, some of the book is written in a small font but the pictures are wonderful. NOTE: This book comes to you with a safety warning regarding the small parts used in the patterns.
Therefore, please use your own discretion as to the age of the child you intend the gift for.

Miss Emily was everybody's favorite spinster.
Every year, for her birthday, she received dozens of little gifts from friends and family. Year after year the knickknacks were added to, and soon filled every corner of the house.
On her hundredth birthday, her niece asked what she wanted this year.
Miss Emily said, "I'll take a kiss. Anything I don't have to dust!"
One day, my husband announced to the family that he was going to fast and pray.
Ginny, our 5-year-old, had recently learned that fasting meant not eating. "No!" she shouted. "You can't fast! You'll die!"
Her dad carefully explained that many men and women fasted in Bible times.
Ginny paused a moment. Then, with a flash of insight and a note of warning, she proved her point. "And they all died," she said.
During the church service the choir presented a special choir arrangement.
Standing on her mother's lap, Mallory, 2, was engrossed in the music because her grandmother was singing. When there
was a pause in the music and everything got quiet, Mallory called out, "Good job, Grandma!"
A teenager who had just received her learner's permit offered to drive her parents to church. After a hair-raising ride, they finally reached their destination.
When the mother got out of the car she said emphatically,
"Anytime," her daughter replied with a smile.
As her mother headed for the church door, she said,
"I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to God."
It was the first camping experience for Jed. As soon as he had pitched his tent, he went for a hike in the woods. In about fifteen minutes he rushed back into camp, bleeding and dishevelled.
"What happened?" asked a fellow camper.
"I was chased by a black snake!" cried the frightened Jed.
The camper laughed and retorted, "A black snake isn't deadly."
"Listen," groaned Jed, "If he can make you jump off a fifty-foot cliff, he is!"
Little Bobby was spending the weekend with his grandmother after a particularly trying week in kindergarten.
His grandmother decided to take him to the park on Saturday morning. It had been snowing all night and everything was beautiful. His grandmother remarked, "Doesn't it look like an artist painted this scenery? Did you know God painted this just for you?"
Bobby said, "Yes, God did it and he did it left handed."
This confused his grandmother a bit, and she asked him "What makes you say God did this with his left hand?"
"Well," said Bobby, "we learned at Sunday School last week that Jesus sits on God's right hand."
A woman was shopping for outfits for her fiftieth high-school
reunion when a group of teenage girls came in to try on prom
"This dress makes me look forty years old," one girl remarked.

A man went to a pet shop and asked for a bird that could sing. The proprietor brought out a gorgeous tropical bird,
looked the bird in the eye, puckered his lips and started to whistle.
The bird took up the very note and finished the tune with him.
"That's mighty fine," the customer said, "but I'd never pay money for that bird. His right leg's crippled."
"I thought you wanted me to sing!" cried the bird. "I gotta dance, too?"
A friend was thinking about buying a new house in the country and asked me to come out and look at it. We found
the town, but we couldn't locate the road. We drove over to
city hall, where a community get-together was going on, and
asked around, but no one had heard of the road. Even the
policemen and fire personnel were stumped.
We went in to city hall and consulted a map, with no luck, until finally one young man came to our aid. He pointed to the map, showing us exactly how to get there. I thanked the young man and asked if he was with the police or fire department.
"Neither," he replied. "I deliver pizzas."
A couple's lawn mower was broken, and the wife kept hinting to her husband that he should get it repaired. But the message never sunk in. She finally thought of a way to make her point.
One day the husband arrived home to find her seated in the grass busily snipping away with a pair of scissors. He watched silently for a short time, and then went into the house.
He returned a few moments later, handed her a toothbrush and said, "When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the sidewalk."
The doctors say he should be able to walk again, but always have the limp.
An irritated father complained to his golf buddy, "When I was a kid, my parents sent me to my room without supper if I misbehaved. But my son has his own TV, telephone, computer, and every computer game and CD player in his room!"
"So how do you handle it?" his friend asked.
"I send him to MY room!"
The night before we were to attend a celebrity golf tournament, my friend Irene went to a party in honor of the event. Several of the famous athletes who were playing in the tournament were at the door, greeting guests. Among them was Joe Montana, the pro football Hall of Fame quarterback and Super Bowl winner.
Shaking Irene's hand, he said, "Hi! Joe Montana."
Well, Irene didn't know Joe Montana from Joe Six-Pack, so in all sincerity she extended her hand and said, "Irene. Minnesota."
