How to read a crochet pattern

HOW TO READ A Crochet PATTERN The first step in learning how to read a crochet pattern is to learn the terms and abbreviations. I have most of the terms, abbreviations and stitch instructions on my Crochet Basics Page.Once you familiarize yourself with these terms reading patterns will be much easier for you. The following are pattern excerpts that viewers have asked me about. Review the abbreviations on the Basics page then choose a pattern and see how it goes. All crochet patterns begin with a foundation chain. Anytime a set of directions is enclosed in parentheses you do what the pattern says directly after it. The following page has symbols for crochet stitches. HOLDING YOUR PROJECT: You should hold your project however you feel comfortable and in a way that you can manage to complete the stitches correctly. TURNING: Anytime a pattern says to "turn" the piece... you flip it over so you are working from the opposite end. HOW MANY CHAINS? PATTERN SAYS: Sc in first ch-1 sp. Related:  Crochet

Granny mania ! Simple Sunburst Crochet Heart Tutorial Hello Lovelies, we are enjoying a quiet half term week here , I've been busy spring cleaning and reorganizing. But I've also taken the opportunity to write out another tutorial for you . My original Sunburst Granny Heart , which I posted last spring has turned out to be one of my most popular patterns. That's quite a complicated design though, with many different stitches . In this version my aim was to simplify things and also to create a solid version, suitable for stuffing......... What do you think ? Here goes with the tutorial...lots of pictures and tips as usual ......enjoy :0) I'm again using U.S. terms and you start by making a modified sunburst granny circle. Hello again, here goes with round 4....starting to develop the heart shape. In the next stitch make 1 hdc......... 1 dc in each of the next 2 stitches........ In the next stitch make 2 dc.......... followed by 1 dc in the next stitch and 2 dc in the following stitch......... Then it's time to make the second "bump".

granny etoile Hi everyone; my second, baby boy option, blanket is now decided upon. I wanted a blanket covered in 5-point stars, made up of hexagon motifs similarly to my baby girls puffed daisy blanket. This wasn't the most straightforward project to design, and I have to admit that I don't think I could just write the pattern down in a way that most people would be able to understand easily, so a comprehensive photographic tutorial is essential for this project. I would have loved to have made a video tutorial for you, but with only 1 pair of hands I'm afraid it is beyond me! (I suddenly feel the need for a large rubber band to hold my camera to my forehead! Back view below. My boys baby blanket is in shades of blue, green, white, grey and dark brown. Go on, give it a go... Happy crocheting Karen xx

Maisie Flower How-To After receiving so many wonderful comments about my 'Maisie Flower', I decided to waste no time in sharing this pattern with you. I'm really hoping it all makes sense and that the pictorial guide gives you more help than just words. I'm sure most of you would be able to interpret this pattern from the visuals alone, but the added written instructions on each photo should make it much clearer for those who are a bit less confident. I've tried my very best to make this as easy to follow as possible, but should you find any mistakes please let me know. I'm learning too, so please be gentle! Just click on the images for a more detailed view. I really hope you enjoy this tutorial, as much as I enjoyed making it for you?!! Bye for now x x x Please find below larger individual pics (just click on image) should you require a more detailed view.

Co-Creating CARE | Community, learning, collaborative, making, craft, asset-based, skills, sharing Urban Knitting Barcelona El movimiento "Urban Knitting" es una manera más de hacer arte, de crear, de dejar salir la creatividad que recorre nuestras venas. Es “Street art” o “Urban art” consistente en decorar mobiliario urbano con coloridas piezas tejidas a ganchillo o punto, humanizando nuestro monótono y frío alrededor, demostrando que tejer ya no solo es cosa de abuelas, que es algo actual y una de las mejores terapias anti-estrés. Tejer ha dejado de ser una labor que se realiza en un ámbito casero y familiar para convertirse es una actividad colectiva, divertida y sobre todo creativa y moderna. Surgió en 2005, en Houston, cuando Knitta decidió tejer el tirador de la puerta de su tienda de lanas con colores rosas y lilas.
