FOUNDATION SINGLE CROCHET (FSC)
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.
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?
<< 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?
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.
<< 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.
Hi there. Haven't worked this pattern but want to tell you this is a beautiful blanket! Good job

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
"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."
