Subject: double triple crochet
How do you do this? I know how to triple just not double triple.
Directions say “chain 5, work 5 double triple crochet in the first chain of 5, slip stitch in same chain as beginning of the 5 chain,repeat”
I believe your instruction is from a pattern called Icicle Angels that can be found here:
A Double Triple Crochet is also known as a Double Treble Crochet.
DOUBLE TREBLE (DTR)
Yarn over three times, then insert your hook into the stitch or space indicated.
Yarn over and pull up a loop. (You should have five loops on your hook.)
Yarn over and draw through two loops. (You should have four loops on your hook.)
Yarn over and draw through two loops. (You should have three loops on your hook.)
Yarn over and draw through two loops. (You should have two loops on your hook.)
Yarn over and draw through two loops.

Did you know you can join a new color yarn to a project using a double crochet?
For instance, when making granny squares you can eliminate the slip stitch join and subsequent chain 3 to begin a new color round by joining the new color with a double crochet.

I’ve broken down these instructions for you:
insert hook in the first double crochet
yarn over and draw up a loop
yarn over and pull through 2 loops loosely
now repeat the instructions from the asterisk in each of the next 3 stitches.
you should have 5 loops on the hook.
yarn over and draw through all 5 loops on the hook.
chain 1 for the eye of the inverted half shell
work 1 single crochet in the next double crochet
now repeat from the asterisk in each of the next 9 stitches.
you should have 10 loops on the hook.
yarn over and draw through all 10 loops on the hook.
chain 1 for the eye of the shell.
Now repeat from the ** across ending with a yarn over and drawing through all 6 loops on the hook.
chain 1 for the eye of the half shell.
I practiced crocheting the newborn size ( I am a beginner) and it came out beautiful. Do you have the same pattern for a 4-5 month old?

I'm so glad you enjoyed the pattern.
At the moment I do not have any larger versions of this hat... but keep watching :)
I am fairly new to crocheting. I'm crocheting your Christmas ornament bag.
Why the "ch 5" on rows 3-24?
<< Reply >>
The Chain 5 on each of rows 3-24 gives you spaces in which to weave the
tie string when you finish.
what does (3dc over the last dc made) mean.
<< Reply >>
I believe this instruction is in the “Falling Leaves Afghan”, a/k/a “Crochet Autumn Leaves Afghan”.
I have read one interpretation of this instruction online and it isn’t what I believe the designer wants you to do.
I believe that “3dc over the last dc made” means to work those 3 double crochet stitches around the post of the last double crochet you made. This will make those 3 stitches lean.
Let me know how this works out.
Hello. I was wondering how many crochet hooks this pouch would hold. BTW, I love all the miscellaneous item patterns. I'm still a semi-beginner & am looking for other projects other than beanies & scarves.
<< Reply >>
It depends on the hook sizes... I would estimate it to hold at least 4-6
average size hooks (G-H-I). I’m glad you are enjoying some of my patterns.
Most of my patterns can be made in a short time... I love quick projects because
they make great gifts.

Do you have a easy beginner hat pattern? Thanks.

Rd. 21....is ch.16 the nape of the dog? It seems awfully small... Is it because I'm using 3 wt. yarn?
Thanks again ...nancy

Once you make the 16 chains you join to the opposite end of the working row.
The 16 chains plus the 40 half double crochet stitches make the circumference of the neck.

I'm looking for a free pattern to crochet a buddy blanket.
<< Comments >>
See what you think about this pattern:
Thank you but It's a buddie blanket not a bunny blanket. I appreciate your input and will save it for a baby.
I have a 5 yr old boy that wants a BUDDY blanket.
I'm not sure what a Buddy Blanket is? There are tiny blankets like the bunny one that are referred to as a "lovey". Do you have a picture of a Buddy Blanket?
It looks like a small crocheted blanket with a bear head and arms in the center. The arms look like they are holding down the bear. You are so nice to help with the search of a free pattern. Thank you.
I found a free pattern for a Panda Bear Lovey:

RE: Post on the Crochetnmore Fan Page
confused about instructions! please help..on bonnie's cross bookmark, arms: row 3/says ch 4/1st ch 4 sp made/ is that suppose to join, somewhere?

For Row 3 you make 4 chains (which will count as one ch4 space) Then go on to work 3 double crochets, one chain and 3 more double crochets all the next chain 1 space of the next shell. Rows 3, 4 and 5 comprise one "arm" of the cross. Each time you make 4 chains OR make a treble crochet you will be working along the side of one "arm". Hope this helps.
Here is a pic of my dog with your crochet pattern. Again, thank you for sharing.
I'm making a pink one for another dog and I will send you a pick too.
And a pic of my other dog Pixy Bear with her coat. She's a mix Yorkshire. Very sweet.

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.

Michael learned how to ride his bike without training
He came inside to excitedly tell Anne all about it and said,
"You know how you don't like me growing up? Well too bad. I just did!"
Figuring that her four-year-old son Kevin was
listening in the next room, Janet decided to
tell her husband Don the latest Christmas gift she had bought the boy by spelling out the words
Don nodded and said, "I think it would be a great Christmas gift."
From the other side of the wall, they heard Kevin yell, "I don't want letters for Christmas!"
Our son and his wife took their two children to the
store to see Santa Claus. However, when it was time
for three-year-old, Maude to go up and talk to Santa, she became shy and wouldn't go.
Several times, Santa asked her to come to him, but she refused. Finally, he asked, "Would you like a
"Yes" Maude replied.
"Can you come get it?" Santa asked.
Maude thought about this for a moment, then said, "Can you throw it?"
Several women, each trying to one-up the other, appeared in
court, each accusing the others of causing the trouble they
were having in the apartment building where they lived.
The judge, with Solomon-like wisdom decreed, "Okay, I'm ready
to hear the evidence...I'll hear the oldest first."
The case was dismissed for lack of testimony.
The story is told of ten-year-old Johnny, who rushes home from school one day. He invades the fridge and is scooping out some cherry vanilla ice cream when his mother enters the kitchen.
She says, "Put that away, Johnny. You can't have ice cream now. It's too close to supper time. Go outside and play."
Johnny whimpers and says, "There's no one to play with."
Trying to pacify him, she says, "OK. I'll play with you. What do you want to play?"
He says, "I wanna play Mommy and Daddy."
To appease him, she says, "Fine, I'll play. What do I do?"
Johnny says, "You go in the living room and sit down."
Mom goes into the living room. Johnny, feeling a bit bold, swaggers down the hall and opens the utility closet. He dons his father's old fishing hat and overcoat. He goes into the living room, sits down, picks up the remote and starts changing channels.
His mother says, "What do I do now?"
In a gruff manner, Johnny says, "Go in the kitchen and get that kid some ice cream!"
A client recently brought her two cats in to my husband's veterinary clinic for their annual checkup. One was a small-framed, round tiger-striped tabby, while the other was a long, sleek black cat.
She watched closely as I put each on the scale. "They weigh about the same," I told her.
"That proves it!" she exclaimed. "Black does make you look slimmer. And stripes make you look fat."
One day, an employee received an unusually large check. She decided not to say anything about it.
The following week, her check was for less that the normal amount, and she confronted her boss.
“How come,” the supervisor inquired, “you didn’t say anything when you were overpaid?”
Unperturbed, the employee replied, “Well, I can overlook one mistake – but not two in a row!”
The brilliant lawyer F. E. Smith once defended a bus driver against claims that his negligence had caused injury to a young man's arm:
"Will you please show us how high you can lift your arm now?" Smith asked the plaintiff.
The young man obediently raised his arm to shoulder level, his face contorted with apparent pain.
"Thank you," said Smith. "And now, please, will you show us how high you could lift it before the accident?"
The man's arm shot above his head.
When we moved cross-country, my wife and I decided to drive both of our cars. Nathan, our eight-year-old, worriedly asked, "How will we keep from getting separated?"
"We'll drive slowly so that one car can follow the other," I reassured him.
"Yeah, but what if we DO get separated?" he persisted.
"Well, then I guess we'll never see each other again," I quipped.
"Okay," he said. "I'm riding with Mom."
When my son, Terrence, was four years old, he piqued everyone's interest when he placed a childishly wrapped package under thetree for each family member.
On Christmas morning, Terrence looked on with joy and expectation as we opened his gifts. There were exclamations of "I thoughtI'd lost that!" and "So that's where that went!"
When we asked Terrence why he had wrapped our
favorite items, he replied, "Because I knew it
was something you would really want!"
One of our kindergarten students decided to see what would happen if he poked a pencil into his ear, and sure enough, the eraser end popped off and lodged in his ear.
During the lengthy removal process, I was chatting with him to keep him still and asked, "Didn't your mother ever tell you to never put anything smaller than your elbow in your ear?"
"Nope!" he replied. "My mom always says that with me, what goes in one ear always comes out the other!"
Two weeks after my one-year-old's photo shoot, I
returned to the studio to view the pictures on a
The photographer started describing the merits
of each photo, but as he went through the set, he
spoke so quickly that I couldn't get a word in as he pressed home his sales pitch.
Finally, after we'd seen all 20 poses, he asked me which ones I was most interested in.
"None," I replied. "This isn't my child."
