Do you know what this means??? I can’t find anything about this on the internet anywhere. It’s from this pattern: http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LW4240.pdf
the section I'm wondering about: “ With wrong side facing, skip beginning ch-2 and next 3 sts on Hand; join with sc in next st, dc in next st, [sc in next st, dc in next st] 6 times; taking care not to twist beginning ch and working in back bar of each ch, [sc in next ch, dc in next ch] twice, skip next 4 ch, [sc in next ch, dc in next ch] twice; join with slip st in first sc and turn—11 sc and 11 dc.”
I cannot for the life of me even guess what they mean by “Hand” and they have us ch 12 before this….
Btw, I like your posts about crochet basics and abbreviations they helped me so much in the past

This pattern begins with the “Right Hand” which includes a “Cuff” and a “Hand” portion.
When you see headings listed within a pattern... the designer will, more than likely,
refer back to them. In this case when “hand” is mentioned it is referring to HAND part of the pattern you made previously.
Keep in mind with this pattern you only to the sections pertaining to your size.
I’m glad you enjoy learning more about crochet with us!
Re: Crochet & Knit beginner
I wanted your opinion on what would be great beginner items to include in a gift basket? Thank you.
<< Reply >>
Items to include in a gift basket would depend on the theme of the basket.
Personally, I think one of the best beginner patterns is an afghan because you get a lot of practice with the stitch(es) used.
However, that basket would have to be a large one.
For smaller items:
You might include a hotpad, dishcloth, dish towel, placemats, etc in a kitchen themed basket.
A bathroom themed basket might include a wash cloth, soap sack and a back scrubber.
A get well basket could include a crocheted bookmark, coaster set, doily, shawl and/or a good book.
Ideas are only limited to your imagination.
Hi Lisa, do you by chance have a pattern for a sock for wooden chair legs,
so they don't scratch the floor. If so would you please send it to me by
email, thank you so much.

I really appreciate your help please continue.
I have a pattern that says chi 16
Row 1 DC in 3rd change from hook, DCnext5, 3DC,NExt 7.
I have tried different combinations to do this row but none add up.
Please help if you can.
<< Reply >>
Sounds like the designer wants you to chain 16.
Work a double crochet in the third chain from the hook. (that should count as two stitches)
Double crochet in each of the next 5 chains (would be 7 stitches),
work 3 double crochets in the next stitch, (total of 10 stitches).
Then work a double crochet in the next 7 stitches (making the total 17 stitches).
Hope this helps.
Re: Read A Pattern
I was reading through some of your patterns. I was wondering what you mean by the hump of the 2nd stitch. Do you mean the backloop, or something different.
Thanks. I taught myself to crochet many years ago and then took a 30 plus year leave until months ago after a car accident. Now, I try and learn things on the internet.

Each chain has a top loop and a bottom loop on the front side
and on the back there is a little hump.
When you make the foundation chain (the chains made to begin your
project) the front side of the chain will look like little hearts sitting
on top of each other. When you flip the chain over to the back side
it looks like a little row of humps... work into those humps.
I specify to work in the "hump of the chain" in many of my patterns.
Take a look at this video:
for a visual demo of working into the “hump” of the chain.
Hi. I was wondering if you have a knitting pattern for the toothbrush holder?
<< Reply >>
I'm sorry, I currently do not have a knitting pattern for this.
Pattern states: cluster in ch 2 space.
<< Reply >>
Clusters can be made in many different ways.
Your instructions should state how to make the cluster used in your pattern.
When working into the Ch2 space you work the stitches for your cluster into the hole below the next two chain stitches on the working row.
Hope this helps.

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.

She knew she would have to wear a brace with four steel rods
screwed into her skull and attached to a rigid upper-body cast
during her recovery, so she brought to the hospital several

Dewey's eyes now darted around the garage, hoping

My 12-year-old daughter asked me, "Mom, do you have a baby
picture of yourself? I need it for a school project."
I gave her one without thinking to ask what the project was.
A few days later I was in her classroom for a parent-teacher
meeting when I noticed my face pinned to a mural the students
The title of their project was "The oldest thing in my house."
Substituting in a kindergarten class, I introduced myself
and invited the children to help me learn their routines
They spent the day filling me in on every little detail.
The next day, I taught the same class. As I greeted the
students at the classroom door that morning, one of the
little girls stopped short, put her hand on her hip and
looked me square in the face. "I sure hope," she said,
"you didn't forget everything we taught you yesterday!"

When the employees of a restaurant attended a fire safety seminar, they watched a fire official demonstrate the proper way to operate an extinguisher.
"Pull the pin like a hand grenade," he explained, "and then press the trigger to release the foam."
Later an employee was selected to extinguish a controlled fire in the parking lot. In her nervousness, she forgot to pull the pin.
The instructor hinted, "Like a hand grenade, remember?"
In a burst of confidence she pulled the pin ... and hurled the extinguisher at the blaze.
Our children's Sunday School classes were presenting their end of the year program for the congregation - telling about the life of Jesus.
When it came to the part about Jesus' miracles, one little boy said, "Yes, Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead!" The teacher urged him to tell us more.
"Well, Jesus told them to open the tomb, and then He said, 'Lazarus, come out!'
And it's a good thing he didn't just say
because there would have been a stampede of dead guys."
A man takes his place in the theater, but his seat is
too far from the stage.
He signals to the usher and says, "This is a mystery,
and I have to watch a mystery close up. Get me a better
seat and I'll give you a handsome tip."
So, the usher moves him to the center of the third row,
and the man, after a high five, hands the usher a quarter.
Yep. A mere 25 cents.
The usher looks at the quarter in his hand, smiles, leans
over, and quietly whispers, "The wife did it."
A little woman called Mount Sinai Hospital. She said, "Mount Sainai
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."
A man came back to the dealer from whom he bought a new

Our son Sam was a deejay at a university radio station. During one shift, he ran through his material faster than expected. He asked listeners for requests, but no one phoned. So Sam played a few more wild hard-rock numbers and asked for calls after each one, but still no response.
Finally he got serious with his audience. "Okay," he said, "if I don't get any requests, I'll play something my parents would like."
The phone rang immediately.
