RE: pattern confusion

hi hope someone can help recently tried to make something more difficult then a blanket, so I picked to make a cardigan in the pattern it states at the end of the row pattern to last 4tr (which I understand), 1tr in top of 3ch which for some reason is causing my brain to hurt
I hope someone can help


In reference to "1tr in the top of 3ch", I believe the designer wants you to work the one treble crochet in the top of what I refer to as the beginning chain 3.






“Loving others isn't about us at all.
And until that sinks in, we'll never be able
to love the way Christ truly loved.”

~~ Jarrid Wilson, Jesus Swagger:
Break Free from Poser Christianity ~~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~





~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~




For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.

John 3:21

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only this but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation. Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned -- for until the Law sin was in the world; but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam til Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many. And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned; for on the one hand the judgment arose from one transgression resulting in condemnation, but on the other hand the free gift arose from many transgressions resulting in justification. For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. So then as through one transgression there resulted justification of life to all men. For as through the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous. And the Law came in that the transgression might increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 5:8-21


And this is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have no sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. My little children, I am writing these things to you that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world. And by this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. The one who says, "I have come to know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.

1 John 1:5-2:6

He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that being justified by His grace we might be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Titus 3:5-7






Who asked Jesus:

"How can a man be born when he is old?

For any project that requires a foundation row of all single crochets you can use Foundation Single Crochets. In other words, instead of making a series of chain stitches and then working a single crochet into each chain you work a series of FSC stitches.

To begin a Foundation Single Crochet row, Chain 2.

Insert hook into the second chain from the hook
yarn over and draw a loop through (2 lps on hook)
chain 1 (2 lps still on hook)
yarn over and draw through two loops to finish the foundation single crochet.

Insert hook into last chain made, yarn over and draw a loop through. (2 lps on hook)
Chain 1. (2 lps still on hook)
Yarn over and draw through two loops to finish the foundation single crochet.

Repeat from the asterisk * for as many stitches as you need for your project.

RE: How to Crochet - Baby's ABCs Afghan in Multiple Colors


<< Comments >>

I am new to crocheting and would like to try to make this but I can not find a video on how to put the different pieces together. if at all possible I would love for someone to make one.

This afghan is crocheted all in one piece.



RE: Question

Do you have any "tool" I can use to calculate how much yarn I need to make a 50-60" round afghan using 2 strands of worsted weight together?
Thanks Susan

<< Reply >>

Sorry, I do not have a “tool” to figure this out.
The amount of yarn needed depends on many factors...
yarn weight, tension, stitches used, hook size, etc.

I suggest looking at yarn amount required for similar afghan patterns.

For these single strand afghans....

The Stained Glass Afghan on this page:
uses 16 skeins of worsted weight yarn (actual ounces not listed) with an I hook to achieve a size of 76” diameter.

The Skipping Stones Circular Afghan on this page:
requires 48 ounces of Red Heart Chunky yarn and an N hook for a 66” diameter afghan.

The Circle of Love Afghan on this page:
uses 2600 yards of Red Heart with Love yarn (11 skeins) to make a 65” diameter afghan.

Did you have a pattern picked out already?



Re: Toilet Tissue Cover


I made the Toilet Tissue Cover from your pattern and it came out great. I noticed that I crochet tighter than you so I make another 7 rounds of HDC and it worked like a charm. I thought that this information may be helpful to others who are having a problem.

Thanks you for this great pattern.

RE: Crocheted Dish Towel Topper - Base Row


<< Comments >>

I'm able to hear not too bad.
My question is am I able to just serge the raw edge instead of trying to fold it over?
Or even sew it? Thanks for the helpful video.

Angie C

<< Reply >>

You're very welcome.
Thanks for letting me know you can hear the video okay. Many people have said they can't hear it.
Yes, you can serge the edge and then crochet over the serged edge.

I had most of my X, Y and Z finished before I realized that they were backwards as I looked at the front of the blanket! I was reading the pattern from right to left, not left to right! Thank you for posting this, even if I'm replying on your comment now (two years later)

The Incident - True story about how God works

This is about my Father In Law, James Hamblin.
We asked for and received prayer from many of our crochet family after his accident and during his recovery process. For those who do not know, James fell in October causing multiple injuries which took months to overcome. He is home now and doing well.

This is his story!

The Sunday school teacher was carefully explaining the story of Elijah the Prophet and the false prophets of Baal. She explained how Elijah built the altar, put wood upon it, cut the steer in pieces, and laid it upon the altar. And then, Elijah commanded the people of God to fill four barrels of water and pour it over the altar.
He had them do this four times. "Now," said the teacher, "can anyone in the class tell me why the Lord would have Elijah pour water over the steer on the altar?"

A little girl in the back of the room started waving her hand, "I know, I know," she said, "to make the gravy!"


One day I explained to my 5-year-old daughter that if she chose to disobey me, she would have to live with the

"Oh, Mommy!" she said with a terrified look on her face.
"Please don't make me live with the Consequences. I want to live here with you!"

John was furious when his steak arrived too rare.

"Waiter," he shouted, "Didn't you hear me say 'well done'?"

"I can't thank you enough, sir," replied the waiter. "I hardly ever get a compliment."


Recently in Traffic Court, a man who received an expensive parking ticket testified that a uniformed Policeman had given his OK for the man to park there.

The Judge asked the man if he would recognize the Officer if he ever saw him again, and the man replied that he would.

The Judge then said, "Good. When you see the Officer again, tell him he owes you 57 dollars. Next..."

Smith goes to see his supervisor in the front office.

"Boss," he says, "we're doing some heavy house-cleaning at home tomorrow, and my wife needs me to help with the attic and the garage, moving and hauling stuff."

"We're short-handed, Smith," the boss replies. "I can't give you the day off."

"Thanks, boss," says Smith, "I knew I could count on you!"


In the admitting office of our hospital, some patients were filling out forms, others were being interviewed and still others were being escorted to their rooms. An elderly woman hesitantly entered my cubicle. She had completed her admitting forms and, upon my request, handed me her insurance cards.

I typed the necessary information and then asked her the reason for her coming to the hospital.

"Just to visit a friend," she said, "but this had taken so long, I'm not sure I have time now.”


The proud father brought home a backyard swing set for his children and

immediately started to assemble it with all the neighborhood children

anxiously waiting to play on it.

After several hours of reading the directions, attempting to fit bolt A

into slot B, etc., he finally gave up and called upon an old handyman

working in a neighboring yard.

The old-timer came over, threw the directions away, and in a short while

had the set completely assembled.

It's beyond me," said the father, "how you got it together without even

reading instructions."

"To tell the truth," replied the old-timer, "I can't read, and when you

can't read, you've got to think."

I have my own system for labeling homemade freezer meals. Forget calling them "Veal Parmigiana" or "Turkey Loaf" or "Beef Pot Pie."

If you look in my freezer you'll see "Whatever", "Anything", "I Don't Know", and, my favorite, "Food". That way when I ask my husband what he wants for dinner, I'm certain to have what he wants."


In our town's elementary school at the beginning of the year, the school secretary routinely

collects the lunch money from the new kindergartners. This solves the problem of lost money.

But for nervous 5-year-olds, it took a few days to understand what was happening. For two

days, the secretary would come into the room and ask in a loud voice, "Does anybody have

any lunch money for me?"

Her question was met with no response.

On the third day, one little boy came in at the bell, walked hesitantly to the teacher's desk,

held out his hand and whispered, "Here is lunch money from my piggy bank for the poor

lady nobody gives money to."


When I went to get my driver's license renewed, our local motor-vehicle bureau was packed.

The line inched along for almost an hour until the man ahead of me finally got his license.

He inspected his photo for a moment and commented to the clerk, "I was standing in line so

long, I ended up looking pretty grouchy in this picture."

The clerk looked at his picture closely. "It's okay," he reassured the man: "That's how you're

going to look when the cops pull you over anyway."

A little woman called Mount Sinai Hospital. She said, "Mount Sinai Hospital? Hello, Darling. I'd like to talk with the person who gives the information about the patients. But I don't want to know if the patient is better or doing like expected, or worse. I want all the information from top to bottom, from A to Z."

The voice on the other line said, "Would you hold the line please, that's a very unusual request."

Then a very authoritative voice came on and said, "Are you the lady who is calling about one of the patients?"

She said, "Yes, darling! I'd like to know the information about Sarah Finkel in Room 302."

He said, "Finkel. Finkel. Let me see. Farber, Feinberg -- Finkel. Oh yes, Mrs. Finkel is doing very well. In fact, she's had two full meals, her doctor says if she continues improving as she is, he is going to send her home Tuesday at twelve o'clock."

The woman said, "Thank God! That's wonderful! She's going home at twelve o'clock! I'm so happy to hear that. That's wonderful news."

The guy on the other end says, "From your enthusiasm, I take it you must be one of the close family."

She said, "What close family? I'm Sarah Finkel! My doctor don't tell me nothing."
