Crochet stitches can be worked in several ways: into both loops, front loop only, back loop only, around posts, etc. When a pattern calls for you to work "between" stitches... crochet in between the posts of the indicated stitches.

Three-ring binders make great pattern organizers. Insert patterns into clear sheet protectors and divide them into categories with tab dividers. Insert a binder pencil pouch to store your crochet notions (hooks, tapestry needles, scissors, etc.).

"Chain 1 and work a multiple of 4 plus 1 single crochets across the front edge"
Can you please advise what this means.
I'm crocheting a baby bonnet.

I've looked over the pattern on this page:
"Stripe Up the Band!"
>>> "Chain 1 and work a multiple of 4 plus 1 single crochets across the front edge"
For step 2 of the Edging for the Bonnet, I believe the designer intends for you to work evenly all in single crochet along that edge and when you finish you end up with a number of stitches that is a multiple of 4 plus 1.
This would set you up to finish with steps 3 and 4 of the sweater neck edging.
Hope this helps.

Hi. I used the sweater pattern and I tweeked it a tad to make my pup Kira a Christmas dress.
* Kira *
Hope you like it.
I just found your website today while taking a break from shoveling snow (I'm in Evergreen, Colorado). I clicked on the Hero square pattern, under your free afghan patterns. The link opens to the hand pattern. I didn't check the other square patterns.
Thanks for sharing these free afghan square patterns. I plan to make a few as part of a crocheted blanket for charities. :)

I must say that I am very glad our snow is over for this winter.... I am not a fan.. lol
I appreciate you taking the time to email me during your break from shoveling.

I have corrected the link to the Row Count Hero Afghan Square on this page:
Feel free to write anytime!
Thank you so much!
My pattern says "skip next sc, dc decrease". Since I don't have a dc decrease on the row below, does this mean to make a dc decrease?
<< Reply >>
Those instructions alone mean you skip the next single crochet
then work a double crochet decrease.
The decrease is normally worked over the next two stitches on the working row unless the pattern states otherwise.
Hi, I’ve hunted all over for the pattern of the sweater little Ginger the Chihuahua is wearing. It is so cute. Where can I obtain it? I hope to make it for a friend’s tiny dog.

Ginger’s owner made her sweater using our basic Dog Sweater pattern:
then she embellished it with ruffles.
Use the alteration instructions on the pattern page to ensure a good fit
of the basic sweater for your friend’s dog. Then watch this video:
which shows you how to add ruffles to a project.
Pattern says:row 1.... Holding back on hook the last lp of each dc....dc in 4th ch from hook and in next ch....yo and draw thru all 3 lps on hook. Can I find a illustration of this technique? Thank you!
<< Reply >>
This is having you work a double crochet decrease.
Watch this video:
then....do the stitch this way:
double crochet in the fourth chain from the hook but do not complete the very step (leave last two loops on the hook).
double crochet in the next chain but do not complete the very last step (you should have three loops left on the hook).
yarn over and draw through all three loops to finish that stitch.
Hi, I am attempting to make this....and having a problem...would you be able to send me a pic to show me what the back looks like? thanks

I don’t have this particular square in front of me at the moment.
What kind of problem are you having?
All of the Row Count Afghan Squares look the same on both sides... only the image is reversed.
Re: Cross stitch pattern
I am hoping you may have an idea how I might accomplish the following:
I want to create an afghan for my son using the afghan stitch, with the Cleveland Cavaliers NBA team’s logo cross stitched on it. I can find software to create it based on using Aida cloth, but I need to be able to adjust it so it is bigger so I can use it on my afghan. Once upon a time, I did a Washington Redskins afghan for my brother, but it came in a kit. I’ve done some web surfing, but came across nothing.

You can try
to make your graph.
Make a copy of your picture onto a sheet of graph paper.
The more squares per inch on the graph paper the larger the afghan will be.
Any cross stitch graph can be crocheted using single crochet stitches because a single crochet stitch is “square”. Did you know you can also make the same graph by using different stitches? For instance, a group of 3 double crochet stitches is also “square”.
Hope this helps.
Hi! I used the Angel pattern I found on your site at this link for a First Communion gift for my greatniece. I love the pattern and particularly how you did the head and wings. However, I found an error in the pattern on that page. For rows 12-14, it says to repeat row 10, but it should say to repeat row 11. Believe me, I tried it the way it was written and I knew something was wrong because the skirt just kept getting wider and wider rather than having a bell shape. So I ripped out the last 4 rows (I had completed the entire pattern already) and redid rows 12-14 using the same instructions as for row 11, and then it looked just like the picture.
Thanks for the pattern!

Thank you so much for letting me know.
The angel pattern was one of the first patterns I ever added... typed while a toddler was in my lap I am sure... lol I will gladly share this info with our viewers.

Crochet Tip: Be sure to leave yarn tails at least 3-4" long so you can weave them back into the work to ensure the project does not unravel. Thread the yarn tail onto a tapestry needle and sew through a few stitches in one direction and then a few in the opposite direction for better stability.
<< Comments >>
I also like to do this with the yarn ends created, when it becomes necessary to tie 2 pieces of yarn together. Such as when your yarn breaks, or u run out, & have to add another strand. I see a lot of people just knotting these & then cutting the ends very short. But I think that takes away from the "finished" look of the rest of the project, to have those little knots with tiny frayed ends sticking out of them. Why not show the same care in weaving these ends as well?
I have also seen other crocheters cut the yarn leaving very short ends. I was always afraid to cut the ends too short for fear the project could unravel. We put too many hours into projects to have that happen. Using a yarn needle is fast and easy and doesn't affect the look of the project at all.
When I'm weaving my ends in I go through stitches and I also go through the tail in different places. that way it gets pulled in on it's self when I run it along through more stitches.
words can be short and easy to speak,
but their echoes are truly endless.

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 vacuum cleaner will work better now."

Barb's granddaughter was in kindergarten. There was a boy in her class that wasn't listening to the teacher.

Recently in traffic court, a man who received an expensive parking ticket testified that a uniformed policeman had given his okay 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.

touched the arm of a man putting on an overcoat.
"Excuse me," he said, "but do you happen to be

The minister gave his Sunday morning service, as usual, but this
particular Sunday, it was considerably longer than normal.
Later, at the door, shaking hands with parishioners as they moved
out, one man said, "Your sermon, Pastor, was simply wonderful - so
invigorating and inspiring and refreshing."
The minister of course, broke out in a big smile, only to hear the
man say, "Why I felt like a new man when I woke up!"
The pastor's wife was teaching a group of the church's
young children how God provides all our needs. Using the
Exodus story she was explaining how God provided Manna
to the Israelites every day for 40 years.
A little girl responded seriously, "That was not a balanced
