Learn the Basics Texture plays an important part in the beauty of crochet. The finer mercerised threads (#100, #80 or #60) are more effective for delicate designs used for tablecloths, doilies and edges. However for some of us, if seeing and grasping the thread is a little challenging, work in a larger thread such as #10 or 4ply cotton. The crocheted items will be larger so this will have to be taken into account. Also consider that different brands or colours of the same size thread may vary in thickness. Avoid joining the thread in the middle of a pattern and never make knots to join the thread. Embroidery Threads American threads usually use the same sizing as our own for crochet cotton sizes such as our number 10, 20, 40, etc. shown as No 10 or #10 etc. Yarn sizes however are generally provided as a weight of yarn such as worsted weight, sports weight, etc. Back to INDEX Crochet hooks are made of steel, plastic and alloy metals.

Toy patterns-for people who enjoy knitting toys | Alan Dart All the patterns in the Toy Patterns Shop are available as PDF downloads, and range from 5 to 28 pages each. Printed paper versions are not produced, and a mail order service is not possible. Each pattern includes photograph(s) of the finished toy, and the size of these have been kept small so as not to use too much of your ink. The number of photographs will vary from pattern to pattern, depending upon how many are available, as those in older designs were only taken as a reference before the toy was sent off to the magazine. VERY IMPORTANT! Once downloaded and saved, the patterns can be printed out on ordinary copy paper. Patterns marked with an asterisk* are a version exclusive to the website, and those marked with a double asterisk** are new designs that have been created exclusively for this site, and only available here.

Standing Double Crochet - Joining Without the Slip Stitch and Chain! The Standing Double Crochet stitch is one I came to late – and I wish I’d known about it years earlier! It’s not a stitch that you’ll usually find specified in a pattern, and as such it has no standard abbreviation. What it is, is a technique – one that will allow you to start a new row on a crochet project without having to use the telltale “join with a slip stitch and chain 3” – and I can’t wait to share it with you! Video Tutorial: Standing Double Crochet – Right Handed Left Handed Photo Tutorial for the Standing Double Crochet Step 1: Hold the yarn end with the last two fingers of your hook-holding hand. So what do you think? NOTE: Several different people have now written to me, claiming that they invented this technique.

Katiedid Crafts: Knit Flower Headband I was looking for a fun option of headgear for the winter months. After seeing a few cute things at different stores I decided upon a knit headband with a crochet or knit flower attachment. I found a few patterns online but after making them I decided it might just be best to write my own pattern to tailor my exact wants and needs. I saw this in a store and decided I wanted to make something that looked similar to this. This is what I came up with. You can make this headband with or without the attached flower or even attach something else!

Yarn Conversion Chart – Crochet Hooks You Use this yarn conversion chart only as a guide and I suggest you test with a gauge swatch/tension square for more accurate results. This yarn conversion chart is also useful if you have a pattern that lists a yarn that has a different country measurement scale and you need to convert yarn from one country to another. This chart will also help you become familiar with the different names used between countries for the same types of yarn. Yarn Conversion Chart I hope this is helpful to you. Enjoy making your projects!
