Designers implement the technique of crocheting with multiple strands in order to add thickness to a project when needed. Potholders are often made with the multiple strand technique.
When a crochet pattern calls for working with more than one strand of yarn at once. Hold the required number of strands together as you crochet... treating all of the strands as one.
Note: Be extra careful when making the stitches to ensure each stitch is made with all of the strands.

Combining different kinds of yarn can look great in a project. When combining yarns be sure to pay close attention to the care instructions. All yarns are not created equal when it comes to how they are laundered. For best results, follow the care instructions for the most delicate of the yarns used.

Please I would like to know what is the hump?
The rest is easy. Just wanted to know.
Thank you Joey Reinhold

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.
What do you mean by "back up the other side of the chain?
<< Reply >>
Working back up the other side of the chain means you work
into the free loops up the other side of the foundation chain.
This video shows how to work into the unworked loops of a foundation chain:
Hope this helps.
How to Crochet: Ripple Dishcloth Tutorial

I love your tutorial!!
I did this last year, but I don't remember what size hook I used! Any recommendations?
<< Reply >>
I used a size G hook. A size "H" or "I" would also work.
I just finished a Row, and now it is saying that I have to do three rows in pattern as SET.
Does that mean I repeat the last row I did three more times? I am confuse.
<< Reply >>
Is the pattern online?
To work in pattern means you will repeat one or more rows
to maintain the established pattern. I need to know
more about the pattern in order to better assist you.
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!

Because our husbands, both medical students in their final years
of internship, were on call for extended periods, my friend and
I were lamenting the fact that we were left alone every fourth
night with our young children.
With a toddler and a newborn, Allison was especially desperate
for help on occasion. Even when her husband was home, he was
so exhausted that he never heard the children's cries at night.
But she noticed that he always heard his pager when he was
called for an emergency at the hospital.
So she did the obvious: When she needed his assistance at night,
she paged him.
One night at the dinner table, the wife commented, "When
we were first married, you took the small piece of steak
and gave me the larger. Now you take the large one and
leave me the smaller. You don't love me anymore."
"Nonsense, darling," replied the husband, "you just cook
The County Highway Commissioner was driving to the hospital for treatment of his painful knee injury. He decided to take advantage of the hospital's Valet Parking. As he exited his car, a young man with the Valet Parking Company, comes up and asks if this was a government vehicle.
"Yes," the Commissioner replied, surprised by the question. "In fact it's an unmarked police car."
"Wow!" the young man said, sliding behind the wheel. "This will be the first time I've been in the front seat."
A man sees a job ad posted on a construction site, "Handy man
wanted; apply within."
So he does and speaks to the foreman.
"Can you drive a Bobcat?" the foreman asks.
"Can you plaster?"
"Have you ever done any carpentry?"
"If you don't mind me asking," says the foreman, "what's so handy
"Well, I only live about five minutes down the road..."
The new family in the neighborhood overslept and their six-year-old daughter missed her school bus.
The father, though late for work himself, had to take her.
Since he did not know the way, he said that she would have to direct him to the school.
They rode several blocks before she told him to turn the first time, several more before she indicated another
turn. This went on for 20 minutes...but when they finally reached the school, it proved to be only a short distance
from their home. The father, much annoyed, asked his daughter why she'd led him around in such a circle.
The child explained, "That's the way the school bus goes, Daddy. It's the only way I know."
My next-door neighbor and I frequently borrow things from each other. Not long ago, when I requested his ladder, he told me he had lent it to his son.
Recalling a saying my grandmother used to repeat, I recited, "You should never lend anything to your kids, because you will never get it back."
With that, he responded, "Tell you the truth; it's not even my ladder. It's my dad's."
On the last day of school, Jen delighted her fourth grade students at Topeka Elementary School with her magic trick.
Jen had an imaginary wand which she waved with many flourishes. After many false starts because she kept stumbling for the correct combination of magical words, Jen tapped the children, saying, "Ala kazam, Ala kazoo … I'm making fifth graders out of all of you!"
One of the boys - the boy who throughout the school
year always had something to say -commented, "Why
didn't you do that the first day of school? It would
have saved us a lot of trouble!"
With sermon preparations and anxiety, the new preacher had gotten very little sleep the week before he was to address his flock for the first time; so by Sunday morning, he was both exhausted and extremely nervous. Nevertheless, he managed to make it up the few steps onto the platform and into the pulpit.
However, he had barely begun his presentation when everything he had planned to say flew right out of his mind. In fact, his mind went totally blank. Then he remembered that in seminary they had taught him what to do if a situation like this ever arose:
"Repeat your last point, and let it remind you of what's coming next."
Figuring this advice couldn't hurt, he recalled the very last thing he'd said, and repeated it:
"Behold," he quoted, "I come quickly." Still his mind was blank.
He thought he'd better try it again: "Behold, I come quickly."
He tried it one more time - but in his panic, he pronounced the words with such force that he lost his balance, fell forward, knocked the pulpit to one side, tripped over a flower arrangement, and fell into the lap of a little old lady in the front row.
Flustered and embarrassed, he picked himself up, apologized profusely, and started to explain what had just happened.
"That's all right, young man," said the little old lady kindly.
"It was my fault, really. You told me three times you were on your way down here. I should have just gotten out of your way!"
A teacher was finishing up a lesson on the joys of discovery and the importance of curiosity. "Where would we be today," she asked, "if no one had ever been curious?"
One child quietly spoke up from the back of the room.
"Still in the Garden of Eden?"
A feisty 70-year-old woman had to call a furnace repairman.
After a quick inspection the man put some oil into the motor and handed her a $70 bill for labor.
"Labor charges!" she exclaimed. "It took you five minutes."
The repairman explained that his company had a minimum one- hour charge on every house call.
"Well, I want my remaining 55 minutes of labor," the lady
responded, and she handed him a rake.
The repairman spent the next 55 minutes in her yard bagging leaves.
A visitor to Israel attended a recital and concert at the
He was quite impressed with the architecture and the acoustics.
He inquired of the tour guide, "Is this magnificent auditorium named after Chaim Moscovitz, the famous Talmudic scholar?"
"No," replied the guide. "It is named after Sam Moscovitz, the writer."
Never heard of him," said the visitor. "What did he write?"
"A check," replied the guide.
