Hey everyone. I need help determining how much yarn I need to make an afghan. It is a pattern of one single crochet and a shell consisting of five doubles. A friend gave me the pattern and told me how many stitches to start with, but no info on yarnage. I bought 24 oz thinking it would be enough, note I amnot so sure. Please help. Thanks.

It depends on how large you want to make it.

Do you have a pattern you can share? thanks.

Hi Pony and Suzanne. Welcome to the group. It sounds as if both of you keep busy. Suzanne, perhaps you could donate the afghan to a church or local organization for a raffle. It sounds as if the afghan was made with love and the money would go to a good cause. Just a thought.

No,LOL, I don't have a pattern. I can try to tell you what I do and I adjust according to the size I want to make.

Ch. 41.
Row 2: SC in first 9 chs. Half double in each chain to the end of row.
Row 3: (working in back loop only for the remainder of the cap) Turn, ch 2, Half double to the last 9 sts, and sc in the last 9.

Repeat pattern for anywhere from 30 to 34 rows, depending on how big you want it.

Finishing at the top of cap (9 sc.) leave a strand of yarn long enough to gather the top as tightly as you can, and then stitch closed down the sides, finish off. Turn cap inside out, turn up brim around edge, and it is finished.
Very warm in the winter.

I am not good at directions at all, so if anyone knows what I am saying, feel free to elaborate on it.

Suzanne, something I didn't think of until this morning. With certain organizations, you could take the cost of your materials as a charitable donation tax deduction if you itemize. Just hang on to your reciepts from your next yarn purchase or make sure to put something in your tax folder showing approx. how many skeins you used and their retail cost along with a receipt of donation from the organization.

This sounds like a similar pattern I use for the hats I crochet, Mary. It's a really easy pattern and works up quickly.

Maybe you can help with the directions a bit? I am just not good at it, at all.

I would love to hear how you do yours, and maybe I can improve on mine.

I thought your directions were fine, Mary. LOL That's how I knew it was similar to the one I do.

If anyone wants a copy of the instructions, drop me your address in a PM. At least I know where the directions are. LOL Some other things right now I wouldn't be too sure. I think it's from an OLD issue of Crochet World

The pattern I have is for a hat and scarf set using a sport weight yarn. Like yours, Mary, the ribbing in this pattern runs vertical from band of hat to the top where you gather it together. You can leave it plain or cap it with a yarn pompom. The scarf pattern includes fringe.

Hi Everyone -
Just stopping by to check in. I made two scarves this week per the request hints I got from my SIL the week before. They turned out nice, very soft and fluffy. One in B&W and the other is red. They went fast, cranked each out during a movie, one on each night. They were thicker yarns so I did double crochet rows. Goes quickly.
Now I'm just finishing up a basic granny square afghan I started a while back. Lightweight and easy. I am planning on prayer shawls and afghans mostly for the net few months during movie times... getting them ready for Christmas gifts and to stock my shawls as needed. I'm finished with my Christmas shopping this year already... actually overbought even. We went through all sorts of stuff this weekend and I found things I had forgotten I'd bought.

Seriously, Susan... You always help me keep perspective. You're done (overdone) with your Christmas shopping? I am SOOOOOOOO behind. I need to go through my stash though. Maybe I have more than I think...

Well, I start buying right after Christmas, watching for sales.
Plus there are all the items I get back in swaps, and I try to set the ones aside that I think will make good gifts.
Plus when we took our big trip to CO/NM/MO, we watch for different things that some might like.
This year also my family decided to do the whole name exchange thing for the adults, so we only had to buy two items... since we already got their names and wish list because some travel a lot during the holidays, I found their items already online and got them.
DH's family doesn't like to spend a lot, and they don't craft, so they love getting the handmade items from us most so the swap items and crocheted scarves, shawls, or afghans, or quilted items I make are always a hit for them, and I stock those as I make them all-year round...

As for the kids... well, since 4 of them are now on their own and older, we generally just give them some cash, especially in this economy, and I will make something small for them each. The grandkids are all little and I got things on sale for two of them, and made fleece blankets for the other two. (Can never go wrong with soft fleece with kids.)

All I have left is DH's gift, and I think he's going to have to select it himself as its a technical musical piece of equipment he's been hinting at lately.

As for the twins... (Shhhhh)... we are thinking a trip to DW and may just surprise them with the tickets and a gift card and shirt. Stockings will be filled with those and travel items.

Voila! Done.

I hate shopping during the holidays anyhow... and I hate the stress or busy-ness of it all. I like to get it all done before Thanksgiving hits, and that way I can really focus on the REAL meaning of CHRISTmas with prayers/devotions, and enjoy the holidays doing baking, enjoying the snow, etc.

Oh, that definitely sounds like a plan. We'll just have to find a good restaurant or coffee shop somewhere between us. How far are you from Front Royal?

Hi Ladies -- how's the hookin'? We had a couple of cooler days where I did a bit on my afghan but the humidity is so high now I can't bear to work with the yarn (sticks!).

Hi Susan, I am looking for a pattern right now.... LOL, I found one that I liked but it was a bit pricey for me.
I am looking for one like the attachment below...but can't seem to find what I want at a cheaper price.
These days I have to watch my budget.

I'm working on a runner for the antique sideboard/buffet that DH refinished. It was his grandmothers.

I took a break from the runner and made a dishcloth bouquet for my mom's birthday.

Are you on Raverly.com? It's a site for knitters and crocheters. You might be able to find a free pattern on the site.

Thank you for your response, but it is like a wide wrap with pockets on the end. It just looked like something I would like to make, but I am one that does so much better with a pattern.

I saw the idea for putting the dishcloths in the mug on the Crochetville forum. The dishcloth pattern is a freebie SB149-007 Crochet Flower Dishcloth

Cute dishcloth idea!

Mary, I'll try to take some time this week to go through my books and see if I can find something similar to that for you. If I don't have it in my stash of books I'll be surprised. LOL

it finally cooled off around here enough to want to pick up the crochet hook. That and November will be here before I know it. I want all of these hat/scarf sets finished for the Mitten tree.
