Re: Baby Beanie
Would I be able to use a #3 baby yarn to make the east baby beanie you have on the website. You stated it was your own pattern. If so, what size hook would I use and what other changes do I need to make. I am trying to use the same yarn as I used on a blanket.
Thanks for your help.

The yarn I used for the beanie was also a light, size 3 baby yarn.
If you tend to have a tight tension when you crochet I would suggest going up a hook size.

This is what I refer to as a “row count” pattern.
The pattern is worked in all single crochet with a Main Color (MC) and a Contrasting Color (CC). Each row lists how many single crochet stitches to work in each of the colors. For instance, Row 2 has you chain 1 and turn. Then work 13 single crochet stitches in white, 2 single crochet stitches in orchid and then 13 more in white.

How do you count them if you're left handed?
<< Reply >>
The stitches would be counted the same way but in order to crochet the pattern left handed you will need to read the graph in the opposite direction.

I have a pattern with the abbreviation Ss. I'm not familiar with that one do you know what that stands for?
- - -
It is "slip stitch" as far as I know.
<< Reply >>
SS is a Slip Stitch.
Insert your hook into the indicated stitch. Yarn over and draw a loop through the stitch and the loop on the hook.
Crocheted Tissue Holder
I just finished your pattern for the pocket tissue pattern (crocheted)
I tried to put the full Kleenex brand tissues inside of the pocket.....
It was way to small.......

Achieving a different size only means your tension is different than mine.
Tension or Gauge refers to how loose or tight you crochet your stitches are. 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. The Pocket Tissue Cover was one of the first patterns I posted and I failed to list that information. Any difference in yarn can also play a part in changing the size.
In the future you can adjust your hook size to obtain a larger size cover. For this particular pattern you can make the foundation chain the width of the pack of tissues. Repeat Row 2 until it wraps around the tissues and then finish assembling the cover.
In doing this pattern there is a large hole @ the end of the beginning - should there be one? Or is there supposed to be a closed end? I got one from a flea market a few years ago & the ends are closed not woven in. Second ? Is when doing the rounds do I chain one each time or just continuously sc in each CH. In doing so it seems to close after a few rows.....any hints? Or video?thanks - still new @ this & trying to make for god daughters handicapped class for Christmas. Thanks for helping - Daisy.

There’s a hole on both ends... the candy cane is inserted into the tube.
The pattern is worked in a continuous round.. no chains for each new round.
With one stitch in each stitch around the tube should maintain the size as you go.
My pattern reads: ch7. 3sc in second ch from hook; sc in next 4 chs, 3sc in last ch; working in free loops of beginning ch, sc in next 4 chs; do not join. Where are the 4 chs coming from?
<< Reply >>
You make 7 chains to begin with.
Now work 3 single crochet stitches in the second chain from the hook.
Now work one single crochet in each of the next 4 chains.
Work 3 single crochets in the last chain.
Turn the piece around so you can work back along the opposite side of the foundation chain...
working into the free loops of each of the 4 chains you worked into originally.
Place one single in each of those 4 stitches.
Here is a photo that may help with placement:

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!

Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Person asked a young Engineer fresh out of MIT, "And what starting salary were you looking for?"
The Engineer said, "In the neighborhood of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."
The interviewer said, "Well, what would you say to a package of 5-weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years say, a red Corvette?"
The Engineer sat up straight and said, "Wow! Are you kidding?"
And the interviewer replied, "Yeah, but you started it."
We were doing a science lesson on how plants grow. The children all got a chance to plant their own seeds.
After a few days of watching the seedlings, I secretly exchanged a few seeds for the children whose plants did not sprout.
Several days later one of my students said: "Look Mrs. Gilligan, it's a miracle, my plant is growing".
I said: "Yes, seeds sprouting is very exciting".
He said: "No Mrs. Gilligan, that's not the miracle, I ATE the SEED and it is growing anyway!"
When you are in your casket and family and friends are mourning over you, what would you like to hear them say?
Three people chose these words:
1: I would like to hear them say that I was a wonderful husband and a great family man.
2: I would like to hear them say that I was an excellent teacher who made a huge difference in people's lives.
3: I would like to hear them say, "Look, he's moving!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
When my daughter said her bedtime prayers, she would bless every family member, every friend, and every
pet (current and past).
For several weeks, after we had finished the nightly prayer, Kelli would say, "And all girls." Soon this closing became part of her nightly routine.
My curiosity got the best of me, so I asked her, "Kelly, why do you always add the part about all girls?"
"Well," she said, "Because everyone else always finishes their prayers by saying, 'All Men!' "
A young woman drove into the garage where I had a part time job.
She told me this was her first car, and it was time for an oil change.
Wanting only the best for her prized possession, she'd brought
her own filter and oil.
When I crawled under the car, she watched my every move. After the old oil was drained, she gave me the new filter, saying she had bought the very best product for her car after overhearing a conversation between her mother and a neighbor on the subject of oil. With a confident smile, she handed me two cans of Pure Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
I was looking through my closet for something to wear, but nothing was calling out to me. So I sought my three-year-old's opinion. "What do you think I should change into?" I asked.
He thought awhile before replying, "A butterfly."
A bee flew into the bus and began buzzing menacingly against the window next to me and the man seated ahead of me. For several unnerving minutes I debated what I should do until my fellow passenger decided to dispatch the insect with the paperback book he'd been reading.
After several unsuccessful swats, one blow hit its mark.
"I'm glad you got it," I told the man.
He smiled sheepishly as he showed me the title of the book he had used: _Random Acts of Kindness_.
A wife texts her husband on a cold winter's morning:
Her husband texts back: "Pour some lukewarm water over it."

At a local juice bar, a young woman was expounding on her idea of the perfect mate to the old lady that owned the bar.
"The man I marry must be a shining light amongst company.
He must be musical. Tell jokes. Sing. And stay home at night!"
The old granny couldn't take it anymore and spoke up, "Honey, if that's all you want, get a TV!"
"Hey, Bob! You say you're a songwriter?" Andy said.
"I sure am. Why, I've written songs for Michael Jackson, Faith Hill, Ricky Martin, Madonna, Bruce, Lady Gaga..."
Bob said, modestly.
"Wow! Have all those stars sung your songs?"
"Well, actually, I didn't say they sang any of them. I just said I wrote songs for them."
Little Joe walked into his dad's study while his dad was working on the computer.
"Dad," said Joe, "Remember when you told me you'd give me twenty dollars if I passed my math test?"
"Well, the good news is that I just saved you twenty bucks."
Barb's granddaughter was in kindergarten. There was a boy
in her class that wasn't listening to the teacher.
The teacher said to him, "Since you don't want to listen, you sit at that table by yourself."
After a few minutes, Barb's granddaughter raised her hand and said, "I don't want to listen either. Can I sit with
