I have the pieces done, but have not put it together yet. I am going to use a button for the center part instead of the crocheted center. I'll try to post pics when its completed.

That granny stitch hat is so cute! It's similar to a pattern I've bookmarked in my Happy Hooker book. Same thing for the pretty poinsetta flower you've posted. One book on my wish list this season is Crochet Bouquet: Easy Designs for Dozens of Flowers.
Thanks! I get most of my patterns from Raverly.com.


Also is there a good crochet magazine out there? Something I can put on my Christmas list perhaps?

I enjoy Interweave Crochet. They also do Interweave Knits. Check it out here: http://www.interweavecrochet.com/

p.s. Hope you get feeling better quick! Your cat looks pretty comforting, too.

Hi there & welcome to the thread. There are tons of great tutorials & books available to learn from. And let us know if there's anything we can help with.

Just discovered this thread!

I started knitting again 2 years and am halfway through about 3 projects. Once they're completed I'd like to try my hand at crocheting again. My grandmother taught me a few (ok...many) years ago. I may need a refresher and fortunately I have a fantastic yarn shop near me. I also bought 2 books so hopefully I can muddle through.

I'll give my local yarn shop a plug..you can order online and if you call I gaurantee you'll be chatting with Linda for a long while!

Cool. I've looked at those, but figured I could make them. Thanks for sharing. And your edging is very pretty.

I forgot to add that I crocheted the blocks in a join-as-you-go method. I absolutely refuse to stitch blocks together anymore.

I'm with you on that one! I don't EVER sew blocks together anymore. I almost always make afghans with squares. Super long rows annoy me, too.

I'm a much happier crocheter since I learned to join as you go. I avoid sewing blocks like the plauge.

I posted pics & directions for a cro-hook scarf. HERE

I'm working on 2 separate granny square afghans, so I'm up to my eyebrows in grannys at the moment. I hope to get some pics up tonight.

The scarf you made is very pretty! I think I need to try the cro-hook.

marryperri-
Both afghans you've posted are gorgeous! The green and purple have such a calming effect. And I also love your black one and what looks like two different stitches in each square…


christina612-
I'm intimidated by thread crochet. I can feel my hands cramping just looking at it. I attempted to crochet flowers using DMC floss. It was probably me, but I had one hell of a time since the stitches were so small.

Very cute kimono! I have a new goddaughter and looking forward to making things for her.

Your washclothes turned out great! I love the colors and the stitches look so pretty.


cdjkssss-
Beautiful pattern. It's neat how those hearts pop out.


stamping_KML-
That EdgeryDoo is neat! There's a charity group here that provides fleece blankets with the holes already punched. They then rely on volunteer crocheters to hook up the edging. Think I can use my SU mat pack? LOL


redsabby518-
Hope you feel better soon!!


split-pea-
Love pink and white together!
So this cro-hook… is there any other difference between regular & cro-hook crocheting? It looks like you can combine two colors on one row (if I'm looking at your pic correctly)…? Is that why it results in a thicker texture?

OK I feel like an idiot for asking since I would think it'd be common sense...
So this join-as-you-go technique... if you're making indiv squares, don't you still need to sew the blocks together?

Nope. I don't sew them together with a needle and yarn at all. Here's the post on my crochet blog about how I do it:

It is done with a double ended hook. It is just single crochet done in 2 steps. You do the first part(pull up a loop) the whole way acrossed, then you turn the hook & use the other end & a new color to finish the single crochets(yarn over & pull through2). Then you pull up with that color & turn & take off with the first color.

There is a link in my blog post with a pretty good tutorial. Ask if you have any more questions. I just love cro-hooking.

WOW! what an awesome thread!
i love to crochet although i havent done any in awhile.
my late Aunt( bless her heart) taught me when i was 7! she was VERY patient and kind!

i always think of her esp at this time of yr, because every Christmas i got a beautiful new pair of her crocheted slippers.


Thanks for this thread, and the warm memories it brings!

Welcome to the thread. Thanks for sharing your special memories with us. Maybe we can inspire you to pick up your hooks again.

I am telling you, when I recover from all this turkey cooking, I am going right out to buy my double ended hook! That sounds like so much fun and I loved your picture. Thanks for this inspiring thread. I've been sooo consumed with paper and glue and new stamping techniques that I have neglected my first love. Now I can't wait to get to my yarn bag everyday. And, of course, I'm still playing with glue... Happy Thanksgiving all!

This is a tissue cover I just made for my daughter to carry in her purse. I really liked the way it turned out. I just wish I had a bigger color selection of #20 thread for the flowers.

Very pretty tissue holder! Have you tried crocheting with embroidery floss? It makes pretty flowers and you have a wide range of color too!

Thank you! I may try that. I have floss in every color. I used to cross stitch quite a bit.
