Tutorial: Crocheted Jogless Stripes A common problem in amigurumi: you want to crochet something striped, but there's this funky looking stairstep "seam" running diagonally where you change colors. How do you get rid of that!? EDIT: I've also put together a pair of videos showing this technique in action. You can view them here: Tutorial: Crocheted Jogless Stripes
This little crochet trick has been invented and reinvented repeatedly over the years! And the Chainless Starting Double Crochet stitch IS tricky – it definitely takes some practice. But it’s worth it, because it tricks the eye – and makes the telltale starting chain obsolete! Learn how to make it in this tutorial!

Make Your Finished Pieces Look Their Best Make Your Finished Pieces Look Their Best Lay the piece on a towel and press out the excess water between towels. Never, ever wring...this will cause damage to the fibers. Roll the piece up in a towel, and gently squeeze to remove moisture... Now it's time to pin! What I like to do is pin a few all around to get the general shape/measurement, then go back around and place more pins closer together so that you get a nice straight edge. Do not over pin!
It's Friday, it's Friday! Time to get back to our CAL, I hope you are having as much fun as I am. We have reached the last day of crocheting our cowls how time flies. Next week I will be creating a gallery post on Friday to share with you all of the beautiful photos that have been coming pretty! Please be sure to send us a photo of yours too when you are finished if you haven't already: Finish work and how to Weave in Ends Finish work and how to Weave in Ends
Standard Yarn Weight System | Standard Yarn Weight System | * GUIDELINES ONLY: The above reflect the most commonly used gauges and needle or hook sizes for specific yarn categories. ** Lace weight yarns are usually knitted or crocheted on larger needles and hooks to create lacy, openwork patterns. Accordingly, a gauge range is difficult to determine.
Most crochet and knitting pattern instructions will provide general sizing information, such as the chest or bust measurements of a completed garment. Many patterns also include detailed schematics or line drawings. These drawings show specific garment measurements (bust/chest, neckline, back, waist, sleeve length, etc.) in all the different pattern sizes. To insure proper fit, always review all of the sizing information provided in a pattern before you begin. Standard Body Measurements/Sizing | Standard Body Measurements/Sizing |
