refer to a chain space.. it can be chain 1 or any number/series of chains.
Ch-1 sp is the same as chain one space.
Ch2-sp is the same as chain two space.
Example: If a pattern says "sc in next ch-1 sp" then you do a single crochet in the next chain one space (the next space where you previously chained one). Work the stitch into the hole below the chain... not directly into the chain itself.

The afghan in that picture was made by Christina Terzian.
She used a pattern that I had for inspiration and made that afghan.
Sorry, but I do not have the actual pattern.
I do have a couple of heart afghan square patterns you might use to make
a similar afghan:
These squares can be used alone or together along with your favorite joining
method and/or border to finish make an afghan.

Thank you for your video.
I'm going to try this with STARS and HEART shapes!
I’m not clear on if you are crocheting these on top of the towel or how they are attached to the kitchen towel.
There is no instructions for that or any pics showing how it is attached.
<< Reply >>
The topper isn’t directly attached to the towel... you fold a dish towel length ways and insert it through the Hanging Loop.
I designed this pattern for my Aunt who loves to hang her towels but the towels would always wear out before the topper.
She had been cutting the toppers off and sewing new towels onto them. With this pattern she just needs to change the towel.

Re: Christmas Angel Pattern
I was on your web site and would like to know how to get the Christmas Angel pattern. I cannot access this Pineapple pattern anywhere. It is a flat Christmas ornament type pattern.
Please contact me with information how to get this free pattern.

I don’t recall ever designing a pattern like you described; however,
I believe this is the Pineapple Angel pattern to which you are referring:
dc dec in next 2 sts 4 times
<< reply >>
A “dc dec” is a double crochet decrease (a/k/a dc2tog).
“Dc dec in next 2sts 4 times” means you will work 4 double crochet decreases.
Here’s how to make a double crochet decrease :
Work a double crochet in the next stitch without completing the very last step (leave the last two loops on the hook), then dc in the next stitch without completing the last step. You should have three loops on the hook then yarn over and draw through all the loops. Decrease made.
Here is a video showing how to make the double crochet decrease:
Complete that decrease four times for your pattern.
Hi, I just joined from my "fun" email account, but this one "business" is whats attached to my instant email. So my queation is about the size 9 child socks. I'm wondering what you would suggest if I'm wanting to make house socks for my kids who are considerably bigger then a child's size 9. My daughter is an 8.5-9 in women's, my oldest boy is a 7.5 in men's and my little guy is a 6 in kids, he's almost 9 years old. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for what you do! Your dog sweater pattern was the first pattern I read all the way through and undrstood! That made me feel so accomplished! Thanks again.

You’re very welcome Melissa.
It has been quite a few years since I designed the sock pattern.
It should be easy to adjust the size of the sock by making the foundation chain longer in order to obtain more length and repeating rows 8 and 9 for more width. How many stitches and rows you use will depend on your tension. Keep in mind that this sock pattern has no shaping like traditional socks do. It is made more like a leg warmer and closed on one end.
ps I’m glad you enjoyed the dog sweater pattern.
I would love to see pictures Smile
Re: Popcorn stitch
Lisa been crocheting from your site for years, now I need help. I am making an afghan and going to use a popcorn stitch once in a while through the blanket. My question is do I need to do one roll with no popcorn or can I scatter them through with no problem?
<< Reply >>
You should be able to incorporate popcorn stitches throughout
an afghan pattern on any double crochet row.
The standard popcorn stitch is worked as follows:
Work 5 double crochets in the chain or stitch indicated.
Drop the loop from the hook.
Insert the hook in the top of the first double crochet of the 5-dc group.
Pick up the dropped loop.
Draw through the stitch.
Now you can "pop" the popcorn to the right or wrong side of the work as needed.
This video shows how to make the Popcorn Stitch:
Hi there, I’m trying to start this crochet poncho for my daughter, I do know basic crochet but what does the part that says “A over pattern” mean? I understand that 4 sts should equal about 5 inches.
- - - - - - -
4 sts = about 5 in. (12.5 cm) with larger hook and A over pattern; 7 1/2 sc = 4 in. (10 cm) with smaller hook and B.
When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Gauge measurements are included in a pattern for reference to help you obtain the correct garment size.
The Gauge measurements for this pattern should be about 5 inches across 4 stitches when you use the larger hook (Size P) with Color A (Homespun Thick & Quick) while working in pattern.
Then with Color B (Homespun) and the smaller hook (Size L) the measurement should be 4 inches across 7-1/2 single crochet stitches.
The pattern says (dc,tr) exactly what does that mean?

<< Reply >>
When crochet instructions are within parentheses the pattern should instruct
where to place that set of instructions just after the closing parenthesis.
(dc,tr) in the next stitch
means you work one double crochet and one treble crochet "both" in the next stitch on the working row.
if the instruction says:
(dc,tr) in the next ch-sp
you would work both of those stitches in the hole beneath the next chain or series of chain stitches on the working row.
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!

When I went to get my driver's license renewed, our local motor-vehicle bureau was packed. The line inched along for almost an hour until the man ahead of me finally got his license.
He inspected his photo for a moment and commented to the clerk, "I was standing in line so long, I ended up looking pretty grouchy in this picture."
The clerk looked at his picture closely. "It's okay," he reassured the man, "That's how you're going to look when the cops pull you over anyway."
Little Johnny and his family were having Sunday dinner at
his Grandmother's house. Everyone was seated around the
table as the food was being served.
When Little Johnny received his plate, he started eating
'Johnny! Please wait until we say our prayer.' said his mother.
'I don't need to,' the boy replied.
'Of course, you do,' his mother insisted. 'We always say a prayer before eating at our house.'
'That's at our house,' Johnny explained.
'But this is Grandma's house and she knows how to cook!'
As a little girl climbed onto Santa's lap, Santa asked the usual, "And what would you like for Christmas?"
The child stared at him open mouthed and horrified for a minute, then gasped: "Didn't you get my email??!!"
My husband had run to the store with our daughters, Sarah (4) and Hannah (2) and on the way home he drove through a neighborhood looking for houses for sale.
After a bit Sarah asked, "Daddy, what are we doing?"
My husband said he was looking at the houses that were for sale.
Sarah asked "Are you gonna buy a new house?"
Dad replied "Maybe."
Then Sarah said with much concern, "But Dad, how will
we get it HOME?!"
A friend and I were driving in the country looking for an address.
We found the town, but we couldn't locate the road.
We drove to the police station. They'd never heard of the road. Neither had the Fire Department. We went to City Hall, where a community get-together was going on. We consulted a map, with no luck, until finally we happened to ask one young man who knew exactly where the street was. He pointed to the map, showing us exactly how to get there. I said, "Thank you. Are you with the Police? Or the Fire Department?"
"Neither. I deliver pizzas."
On one particular Sunday, the pastor was emphasizing the
importance of everyone giving their tithes and offerings.
He went on to challenge the people to give enthusiastically because II Corinthians 9:7 says in it that "God loves a cheerful giver."
As the plate was passed, a little boy in the second pew, quickly slipped off his neck tie and placed it into the offering plate.
His mother, absolutely mortified, asked him what in the world he thought he was doing.
The boy replied, "The pastor said put your ties in the
offering plate and do it joyfully. I love that man!"
Lee, a seven-year-old boy, was asked to say thanks for the Christmas dinner.
The family members bowed their heads in expectation. Lee began his prayer, thanking God for his mommy, daddy, brothers, sister, grandma, and all his aunts and uncles. Then he began to thank God for the food.
He gave thanks for the turkey, the stuffing, the Christmas pudding, even the cranberry sauce. Then Lee paused, and everyone waited ... and waited.
After a long silence, the young fellow looked up at his mother and asked, "If I thank God for the Brussels Sprouts, won't he know that I'm lying?"
Frequently complimented on what a pretty girl she was, my five- year-old daughter, Maria, had become fairly used to relatives' and friends' comments.
One evening my friend Eleanor came to visit just as Maria was being tucked into bed, so she came to say good night. “My!” Eleanor said, “you have really long eyelashes!”
“Yes, Eleanor,” said Maria. “They should be long.
I've been growing them for five years,” she paused,
“and I never cut them once.”
An elderly woman and her little grandson, whose face was sprinkled with bright freckles, spent the day at the zoo. Lots of children were waiting in line to get their cheeks painted by a local artist who was decorating them with tiger paws.
"You've got so many freckles, there's no place to paint!" a girl in the line said to the little fella.
Embarrassed, the little boy dropped his head. His grandmother knelt down next to him. "I love your freckles. When I was a little girl I always wanted freckles," she said, while tracing her finger across the child's cheek. "Freckles are beautiful."
The boy looked up, "Really?"
"Of course," said the
grandmother. "Why just name me one thing that's
prettier than freckles."
The little boy thought for a moment, peered intensely into his grandma's face, and softly whispered,
As the family gathered for a big dinner together, the
youngest son announced that he had just signed up at
an army recruiter's office.
There were audible gasps around the table, then some laughter, as his older brothers shared their disbelief that he could handle this new situation.
"Oh, come on, quit joking," snickered one. "You didn't really do that, did you?"
"You would never get through basic training," scoffed other.
The new recruit looked to his mother for help, but she
was just gazing at him. When she finally spoke, she
simply asked, "Do you really plan to make your own bed
On a crisp fall afternoon, my four-year-old son was helping rake leaves in the front yard of our farmhouse. I glanced up just in time to see a flock of geese flying over and pointed out how they flew in a formation shaped like a V.
He patiently watched them as they disappeared over the horizon and then turning to me and asked, "Do they know any other letters?"
When eighty-four-year-old William fell in love with his eighty-three-year-old neighbor Phyllis, he thought his heart would burst with joy. However, little did he know that it was another part of his body that would give way first.
Getting down on his knees to propose to Phyllis, he told her that he wanted to ask her two questions. Firstly, would she marry him?
"Oh yes," she replied. "But what's your second question"
"Will you help me up?"
