How to Read a Crochet Pattern by Jean Leinhauser Once you’ve learned the basic crochet stitches, you’ll want to start your first pattern. (If you need assistance with learning basic crochet stitches, visit www.LearnToCrochet.com.) That’s because crochet patterns are written using many abbreviations and terms, which save space and make patterns easier to read. Some of them are easy to understand, like these that represent basic stitches: Print these out and mount them on a card to keep handy while you work. With the abbreviations terms at hand, let’s look at a typical pattern. Whatever way the pattern is to be worked, the very first thing you must do is make a slip knot on your hook. Here is how to make a slip knot (See Figure 1 & 2). Row 1: Ch 15; sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. or Ch 15. Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Now you have 15 chains and the pattern says to “sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across”. Why do you need to skip the first chain? : 14 sc. (14 sc). —14 sc.
Crochet School Sorry I've taken so long to post this very last post of the crochet school series. Would you believe me if I said I don't want it to end? haha That's not the real reason, although it is a little weird to be writing the last crochet school post (for now). I've just been busy designing new patterns and crocheting my butt off for the craft show I'm in next month, Deluxe. Let's cover those questions first: Carly asked "I think you mentioned that you can weave in ends with a hook. Hi carly, Since you're making a blanket, I would probably just try to find a bigger needle. Nia asked "I understand how to make the corners when seaming horizontally but what about vertically.. do we skip the corners and just seam the sides? Since you only do one corner from each side when seaming horizontally, you'll pick up those other two corners when you to the vertical stitches. I answered this question in the comments but I think it is an important one so I'll address it here too. Remember crochet is fun!
Sue's Crochet and Knitting - Free Patterns and more. Free Crochet Patterns, Crochet Cowl Patterns, and Free Knit Patterns | JJCrochet Last weekend (March 14 – 16th), I attended the 10th annual Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival in Cranberry, PA. I’d heard of the festival before, but was never in town to attend. The festival attracted over 70 different booths and some big name teachers. From my perspective, the festival was largely geared towards knitters, but I didn’t mind – it seems to be the preferred craft among fiber artists (don’t worry, crochet, you’ll always be my first love). I purchased a two day pass for Friday and Sunday and zipped up to the festival after work on Friday to check things out. On Sunday, however, the real fun began. I’d purposefully signed up for “Borderline Personalities: Knitting on the Edge” for the sole reason that it was taught by my all-time crochet hero, Lily Chin. An exclusive, inside look at what a knitting class looks like (I know you’ve wondered). Lily doing what Lily does best – teachin’ knittin’ class. The class was 3 hours long and the best $50 I’ve spent in a while.
