Re: Dog sweater instructions
Hi. I was wondering if you can help me. I am a little lost. I got the sweater crocheted up to the part where it comes behind his legs. I am not understanding the slip stitch step. Do you think you could help me out? I love the pattern!

For the basic sweater you make 70 chains, join those into a ring and work half double crochet stitches in each stitch on rounds 1-12. (this is the waist)
Then for Rnd13 you slip stitch into 20 of those stitches (forms opening for front legs), make 2 chains and then work one half double crochet in each of the next 39 stitches (this makes a total of 40 half double crochet stitches including the chain 2 counting as one stitch). Now chain 2 and turn.
Rows 14-20 have you make one half double crochet in each half double crochet (leave chains from Rnd13 unworked and turn after each of these rows).
For Rnd 21 you work a half double crochet into each half double crochet.
Then you make 16 chains (or the number for your size sweater if you are adjusting the pattern)
Then connect that chain you just made on Rnd 21 to the first stitch you made on that round. (this starts the neck band)
Now chain 2 and continue with Rnd 22... working a half double crochet into each half double crochet and into each of the chains you made.
Each additional round will be worked without turning at the end.

I’m want to crochet a sweater and a little confused on the instructions. This is for the sleeves on a small sweater.
Beginning at the lower edge, chain 37. Row 1 (right side): sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across *36 sts; turn. Row 2, Ch 1, sc in each sc across; turn. Rep row 2 for 3 times more. Increase Row: ch 1, working 2 sc in first and last stitch, sc in each stitch across *38 sts; turn. Repeat increase row every 10th row 9 times, every 8th row 0 times, and every 6th row 0 times. Work even on the 56 stitches to approx. 18 ½ “ from beginning. Fasten off.
I think I’m confused with the increase row. Does it mean to repeat row 2 9 times every time you get to row 10? Also, when working on the Front: work as for back. Does this mean follow the same directions as the back?
<< Reply >>
For your Increase Row you are adding an extra stitch on the first and last stitches.
Repeat increase row every 10th row 9 times, every 8th row 0 times, and every 6th row 0 times.
For the increase row... depending on the size you’re making, you work one increase row every tenth row for a total of 9 times on the first size. Looks like the second and third sizes have no increase row repeated.
Work even on the 56 stitches to approx. 18 ½ “ from beginning. Fasten off.
When you have 56 stitches you continue working evenly (sc in ea sc) until the piece measures approximately 18-1/2” from the beginning.
To work the front as for back means you make it the same way.
If there is shaping on the front the pattern will instruct you if you need to reverse the shaping on the back.
What if the pattern says “work 5 sc around ch 5”?
<< Reply >>
If the chain 5 is horizontal, you would work the five single crochet stitches into the space beneath the five chains.
If the chain 5 is the height of a stitch you work the five single crochet stitches around the post of the five chains.
Does that make sense?
My pattern says my piece should measure 11in. Across, my piece is round, where do I measure?
<< Reply >>
To measure "across" a round piece you measure the diameter of the piece.
From one side, straight through the center to the other side.

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!

The Boss who was on the 45th floor of the building
called up one of his clerks, Mr Banta on the ground
floor for an important file.
Since it was rather urgent the Boss told Banta it was
an emergency and that he should hurry with the file.
After more than 30 minutes Banta appears all tired and
panting for breath. The Boss asks him why he was panting
and what caused the huge delay.
He replies, "Sir, when I went to the elavator it said,
'During an emergency please use the staircase'!!!"
When Peters learned that he was being fired, he went to
see the head of human resources.
"Since I've been with the firm for so long," he said, "I
think I deserve at least a letter of recommendation."
The human resources director agreed and said he'd have the
letter that next day. The following morning, Peters found
the letter on his desk.
It read, "Jonathan Peters worked for our company for eleven
years. When he left us, we were very satisfied."
A man in a hurry, taking his 8-year-old son to school, made a turn at a red light where it was prohibited.
"Uh-oh, I just made an illegal turn!" the man said.
"Aw, Dad, it's okay," the son said. "The police car right behind us did the same thing."
Two men were stranded on an island. One man just sat down
under a tree and did nothing. The other man looked all over
the island. When he came back, he said, "There is nothing
here -- no food, no shelter, no nothing. We're going to die."
The first man said, "I make $10,000 a week," and continued
The other man again looked all over the island and came back
dejected. "We're going to die," he said.
The first one again replied, "I make $10,000 per week." And
The other man took one more look all over, returned, and said,
"There's no way we will ever get off this island. We're going
Once again the first man replied, "I make $10,000 per week,
and I tithe. My pastor will find me."
Officers at a military installation were being lectured about a
new computer. The training officer said the computer was able to
withstand nuclear and chemical attacks.
Suddenly, he saw that one of the officers had a cup of coffee
and yelled, "There will be no eating or drinking in this room!
You'll have to get rid of that coffee."
The officer said meekly, "Sure, but why?"
"Because a coffee spill could ruin the keyboard."
One day on the way home from church a little girl turned to her mother and said, "Mommy, the preacher's sermon this morning confused me."
The mother said, "Oh! Why is that?
The girl replied, "Well, he said that God is bigger than we are. Is that true?"
"Yes, that's true," the mother replied.
"He also said that God lives within us. Is that true too?"
Again the mother replied, "Yes."
"Well," said the girl. "If God is bigger than us and he lives in us, wouldn't He show through?"
My girlfriend called me as she was driving to an
appointment. She arrived, and I could tell from
her voice that she was getting frustrated. Finally
she said, "I know I had my cell phone with me. And
now I can't find it!"
I replied, "Aren't you talking on it!?"
There was a solid period of stunned silence as the
reality of the situation sank in - followed by,
"You are NOT going to tell anybody about this!"
My older son loves school, but his younger brother
absolutely hates it.
One weekend he cried and fretted and tried every excuse
not to go back on Monday. Sunday morning on the way home
from church, the crying and whining built to a crescendo.
At the end of my rope, I finally stopped the car and
explained, "Honey, it's a law. If you don't go to school,
they'll put Mommy in jail."
He looked at me, thought a moment, then asked, "How long
would you have to stay?"
A husband raced into the house and said to his wife,
"I've found a great job. The salary is good. It offers
free medical insurance and paid holidays."
"That's wonderful, dear," his wife said.
"I thought you'd be pleased," the husband said. "You
One morning Emma woke up with a start. Her husband Jim asked what was the matter. She told him, "I just had a dream that you gave me a pearl necklace for Valentine's day. What do you think it means?"
"You'll know tonight," Jim said.
That evening, Jim came home with a small package and gave it to his wife. Delighted, Emma opened it, only to find a book entitled "The Meaning of Dreams."
A football coach was asked how he picked a team from
a bunch of raw recruits.
"I hate to give away my secrets," he replied, "but
I'll tell you. I take them out into the woods. Then,
at a given signal, I start them running. Those that
run around the trees are chosen as guards. Those that
run into the trees are chosen as tackles."
A man came back to the dealer from whom he bought a new car.
"I believe you gave me a guarantee with my car," he said.
"That’s right, sir," the salesman answered. "During the warranty period we will replace anything that breaks."
"Fine, I need a new garage door."
