PLACE MARKER (PM)
This means you need to mark the indicated stitch. Use a short strand of a contrasting color yarn or a split ring marker... even a paper clip or latch pin will work. Just put either of these around the stitch you are indicated to mark and then continue with the pattern. The instructions should tell you when to reposition or remove the marker.Watch the Video:

Did you know you can add crocheted edges and trims to purchased garments?
You can use a steel crochet hook and crochet directly onto fabric; or, make the edging using your favorite hook then hand stitch it onto the garment. When sewing an edge onto a garment use a coordinating color thread or an invisible thread.

I am trying to crochet a baby bib. one of the abbreviatons used is Yoh. i know it means yarn over, but what does the h stand for? thank you.

Some designers use yoh instead of yo.
H is “hook”.
Subject: Baby's ABC blanket
I need the written version of how to make the blanket, i.e. chain xxxx sc in the next xxxx sc, then puff st in next sc, etc. Where do I find that info, please? A grid does me no good.

The Baby’s ABC’s afghan is posted with permission from Caron International.
I’m sorry but there is no written out version of this pattern... only the graph.
Reading the graph isn’t as difficult as it seems. Each square on the graph represents
one stitch. All blank squares mean you make one single crochet... all squares with a dot in them
mean you make a single crochet puff stitch. Every odd numbered row is read from right to left
and every even numbered row is read from left to right.

Hi is there a written pattern? What yarn did you use? Are these American or uk crochet terms?
The link to the written pattern is below the video. The actual pattern uses bedspread weight cotton thread... I use worsted weight yarn in the video to make it easier to see. American terms are used in the pattern.
have you anything on croctat
hoping you can help

Sorry, I do not have any information on crotat.
I did a search online and most of what I find available is from a UK or other foreign based website.
UK crochet terms are different than crochet terms in the US.
You might try Youtube for videos to watch to learn how.
Thank you Lisa! Very nice! God bless.

Dish Towel Topper

My grandmother always made these for us.
Now that her sight and memory are gone, I was afraid they were a lost art in our family.
I have an Aunt who loves these also.
I designed a topper that has a loop you put the towel through but she still wants this kind.
Hope you enjoy the pattern.
words can be short and easy to speak,
but their echoes are truly endless.

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.

We took the family to one of those restaurants where the
walls are plastered with movie memorabilia. I went off to
see the hostess about reserving a table.
When I returned, I found my 10- year-old granddaughter
staring at a poster of Superman standing in a phone booth.
She looked puzzled.
"She doesn't know who Superman is?" I asked my husband.
"Worse," he replied. "She doesn't know what a phone booth
Little Johnny's mother was having difficulty gulping down the birthday cake he had made for her as a surprise.
When she was finished, Little Johnny happily exclaimed, "I'm so glad you like it, Mommy.
There should have been 32 candles on the cake, but they were all gone when I took it out of the oven."
One Sunday morning on my way to church, with my baby
and my three- year-old in the car, I pulled over to
the shoulder of the road with a flat tire.
I had no idea of how to change it, but fortunately a
gentleman pulled up and offered his assistance.
When he completed the task, I gave him a rag to wipe
his hands, and, noting he was wearing a suit, I said,
"I hope I haven't made you late for church."
"Don't worry," he replied. "They won't start without
me. I'm the minister."
At our daughter's high school graduation, I couldn't help

As a fellow policeman and I were eating lunch in a cafe,
we heard a woman nearby say loudly, "Jimmy, if you don't
eat all your peas, I'll have those policemen come over
and talk to you."
My friend promptly walked over to the five-year-old who
was being scolded.
"Jimmy," he said, just as loudly, "I'm six-foot-two and
weigh 200 pounds. And I never ate a pea in my life."
As we left, the other patrons were laughing, Jimmy's
mother was absolutely silent, and a smiling Jimmy was
no longer afraid of policemen.
The proud father brought home a backyard swing
set for his children and immediately started to
assemble it with all the neighborhood children
anxiously waiting to play on it.
After several hours of reading the directions,
attempting to fit bolt A into slot B, etc., he
finally gave up and called upon an old handyman
working in a neighboring yard.
The old-timer came over, threw the directions
away, and in a short while had the set completely

In church this past Sunday, we celebrated Communion.
During the "children's sermon", the minister was
talking about Communion and what it is all about.
"The Bible talks of Holy Communion being a 'joyful
feast'. What does that mean? Well, 'joyful' means
happy, right? And a feast is a meal. So a 'joyful
feast' is a happy meal. And what are the three
things we need for a happy meal?"
My son blurted out, "Hamburger, fries, and a regular
Employee: Excuse me, sir, may I talk to you?
Boss: Sure, come on in. What can I do for you?
Employee: Well, sir, as you know, I have been an employee of this prestigious firm for over ten years.
Employee: I won't beat around the bush. Sir, I would like a raise. I currently have four companies after me and so I decided to talk to you first.
Boss: A raise? I would love to give you a raise, but this is just not the right time.
Employee: I understand your position, and I know that the current economic downturn has had a negative impact on sales, but you must also take into consideration my hard work, proactiveness, and loyalty to this company for over a decade.
Boss: Taking into account these factors, and considering I don't want to start a brain drain, I'm willing to offer you a ten percent raise and an extra five days of vacation time. How does that sound?
Employee: Great! It's a deal! Thank you, sir!
Boss: Before you go, just out of curiosity, what companies were after you?
Employee: Oh, the Electric Company, the Gas Company, the Water Company, and the Mortgage Company!
When Charlotte was pregnant with her third child, Gilda, her mother, came to help with the two boys, ages four and six. Gilda, who they called Nana, also cleaned and scrubbed until the whole house was shining. The smell of her favorite cleaning agents often lingered in the air. Three weeks after the baby was born, Nana returned to her own home.
Two days later Charlotte found some stains on the kitchen counter, so, while the baby slept, she used bleach to clean them up. Just then her four-year-old walked in and asked, "Where's Nana?!"
"She went home," Charlotte replied. "Don't you remember we took her to the airport?"
"Then why do I smell her perfume?" he asked.
An old-time pastor was riding furiously down
the road, hurrying to get to church on time.
Suddenly, his horse stumbled and threw him
to the ground.
Lying in the dirt, his body wracked with pain,
the pastor called out, “All you angels in heaven,
help me get up on my horse!”
With extraordinary strength, he leaped onto the
horse’s back—and fell off the other side.
From the ground again, he called out, “All right,
just half of you angels this time!”
My friend Sandy announced that she had started a
