TENSION OR GAUGE
Tension or Gauge refers to how loose or tight you crochet your stitches. Some patterns list measurements for a certain number of stitches and/or rows. This tells you if your tension or gauge meets what is recommended for your pattern. If not, adjust your hook size accordingly.

Be careful when choosing yarn for a project.
Some yarns can be very difficult to work with.
Smooth yarns are the easiest to use, while "novelty" yarns can be very difficult to work with due to the texture.
When using novelty yarn you may need to increase your hook size in order to see the stitches... keep this in mind if the intended project requires you to work in gauge.

I am a beginning crocheter and was wondering on this pattern when you start working on the rounds should I be slip stitching the rounds together before I start the next one? Thank you!

It's been quite a while since I designed this pattern but I do believe you should
"Join with a sl st in the first st."
after Rounds 18 and 19.
I also noticed a typo... For R22-23... you should Rep R21 (not R2).
The only difference in R2 and R21 is one is a "row" and the other is a "round".
Thanks so much for your email!

The directions published on your website from the wrapper image state that you use a size D hook. Is this correct? I have never tried such a small hook with a size 4 yarn like Caron Simply Soft.
<< Reply >>
A size D hook is what is called for on the pattern label.
Personally, I like to use a size G hook with Bernat Baby Coordinates yarn.
this pattern is very cute, but i am confused with the brim
row 14 does not not indicate an increase in stitches but says (170) which is 50 more than previous row
row 14 shows an increase, but also says (170)
I am new to crochet so I am a little confused.

On Row 14 each time you work the FPDC around the “same st”, it adds a stitch.
RE: ABC baby afghan
The "I" in the ABC baby afghan pattern is incorrectly written.
<< Reply >>
Thank you for your email.
I am aware that the letter "I" is graphed incorrectly in relation to the other letters in the pattern.
This pattern is not my design. The pattern is posted with permission from Caron International, therefore
I must post it verbatim.
Hi I am having a difficult time getting to the free pattern list or seeing pictures of the patterns and possibly printing them. What can be done to fix this problem? I am not the smartest person when it come to using the computer. So the simpler instructions given work best for me.

Are you referring to the patterns in the newsletter or on the website, in general?
Can you please tell me how many balls to use to make this as its lovely.
Says 4ply but not how many eg ... 100g ball or more ??? Thanks
<< Reply >>
The pattern uses less than one regular size skein of yarn.
Hope you enjoy it!

I don't recall a dog named Dixie.
I can tell you that all of the sweaters featured in
The Dog House were all made using the Dog Sweater pattern on this page:
The sweater is adjustable to fit any breed.
Each sweater was embellished by the owner/crocheter.
It would be great if it could be able to download pdf

I'm not sure what is causing the pattern not to print.
When I use Chrome, the page fails to show up for me to print but when I use Firefox it does.
Do you have another browser you can use?
Please could you crochet a tablecloth tutorial?

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!

Joey and his classmates had just finished a tour of the
local firehouse. Before each student could leave, the
fire chief quizzed him.
The fire chief asked little Joey, "What do you do if your
clothes catch on fire?"
Joey replied promptly, "I don't put them on!"
Although I knew I had put on a few pounds, I didn't
consider myself overweight until the day I decided
to clean my refrigerator.
I sat on a chair in front of the appliance and reached
in to wipe the back wall.
While I was in this position, my teenage son came into
the kitchen. "Hi, Mom," he said. "Whatcha doin', having
I started my diet that day.
A lady noticed her husband standing on the bathroom scale,
sucking in his stomach. Thinking he was trying to weigh
less with this maneuver, she commented, "I don't think that's

An eccentric philosophy professor gave a one question final
exam after a semester dealing with a broad array of topics.
The class was already seated and ready to go when the professor
picked up his chair, plopped it on his desk and wrote on the
board: "Using everything we have learned this semester, prove
that this chair does not exist."
Fingers flew, erasers erased, notebooks were filled in furious
fashion. Some students wrote over 30 pages in one hour attempting
to refute the existence of the chair.
One member of the class however, was up and finished in less
than a minute.
Weeks later when the grades were posted, the rest of the group
wondered how he could have gotten an "A" when he had barely
written anything at all. His answer consisted of two words:
Police officer: "Can you identify yourself, sir?"
Driver pulls out his mirror and says: "Yes, it's me"

After he presented a number of different situations in
which they might find themselves, he asked a student,
"What steps would you take if someone were coming at
you with a large, sharp knife?"
The student replied, "BIG ones."

I was teaching four little kids how to play Go Fish, and the
luck of the draw just wasn't with little Jimmy. After losing
the third game in a row the red-faced boy protested, "I don't
like this game, it's not fair!"
I tried to explain that he should learn how to be a good loser.
He retorted, "You're the teacher, when are you going to teach
me to win!"
I'd like to buy a new boomerang please.

A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today."
The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting." she said. "How do you make babies?"
"It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'."
