RE: V-stitch baby afghan pattern

I am looking for a lost pattern that was published in a womens magazine in 1991. It was a v-stitch baby afghan with a single crochet mitered border. The afghan was featured on the cover of the magazine. I have lost the pattern and need help to find a new copy.
-- Jean



This one from Lion Brand yarn sounds like it:

"“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God."
~~ Corrie ten Boom ~~

In Thee our fathers trusted; they trusted, and Thou didst deliver them. To Thee they cried out, and were delivered; in Thee they trusted, and were not disappointed.

Psalm 22:4-5

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope for His lovingkindness, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart rejoices in Him, because we trust in His holy name. Let Thy lovingkindness, O Lord, be upon us, according as we have hoped in Thee.

Psalm 33:18-22


May Thy lovingkindnesses also come to me, O Lord, Thy salvation according to Thy word; so I shall have an answer for him who reproaches me, for I trust in Thy word. And do not take the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for I wait for Thine ordinances. So I will keep Thy law continually, forever and ever. And I will walk at liberty, for I seek Thy precepts. I will also speak of Thy testimonies before kings, and not be ashamed. And I shall delight in Thy commandments, which I love. And I shall lift up my hands to Thy commandments, which I love; and I will meditate on Thy statutes.

Psalm 119:41-48


My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments; for length of days and years of life, and peace they will add to you. Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:1-6




This quote is from Our Daily Bread - February 2012 Issue

Be careful the environment you choose, for it will

Sawyer's Shrug


This is cute, but how do you keep the Schnauzer's fur from getting tangled into knots under the arm pits? I crochet a lot of sweaters for my Schnauzer and have learned the hard way, that anything that goes over the legs and can rub will res...ult in knots. My dog isn't fond of having the knots combed out. I was just curious. The shrug is cute, but I woulod probably not make it because I don't want my dog's fur to knot up.
Tanya Riopel


He doesn't wear it a lot... but I've found that I can keep his arm pits from knotting up if I cut that hair shorter than the rest.

How many men/boys do you think crotchet?
I learned to crotchet and knit from my next door neighbor who is long gone now about 30 years ago.
I just started back crotcheting after a few years away from it and I have always preferred it to knitting.
When I learned the crafts my neighbor told me she knew of quite a few men that crotcheted/knitted.
Of course I think it is a relaxing hobby.
Dale Miller

<< reply >>

So glad you’ve picked up your hook again!

I’ve heard of pro football players knitting and crocheting to
help them relax. I think more men crochet than many may think.

One of which is "the crochet dude", Mr. Drew Emborsky.
He has some wonderful patterns and crochet accessories.

RE: Fisherman Shells

I am fairly new to crocheting and am baffled by the following instructions:

Ch3 (counts as first dc of row) - got this
sc in next dc, work shell around stem of same dc; (Note: To work shell: Insert hook from front to back to front around vertical stem of specified dc; work shell of (sc, hdc, 3 dc around stem) sk 2 dc, in next dc; etc…

What’s confusing me is “Insert hook from front to back to front around vertical stem”

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

<< reply >>

It sounds like a Front Post Double Crochet... you can watch my video here:

What those instructions refer to as a “stem”... I call a “post”.

<< Ann's Reply >>

This is exactly what I needed to know.
Thank you so much for taking the time to help me.
God bless you.



Guestbook Comments:

Hello, I really enjoy this web site and I love all of the free patterns. I taught myself to crochet using some of these patterns(the easy ones) and I keep coming back. Thanks for all of the great patterns and also the links to other sites.

Guestbook Comments:
Love seeing all the facebook shares, and checked out your site.
Very nice patterns here, and I love the ones of the dogs.

Guestbook Comments:
Thank you so much for your wonderful free patterns. Being on disability it is so nice to be able to afford to try new patterns as gifts for family and friends. Also, I was wanting to link some of your projects to my Pinterest board but I can't seem to get the images to load so they can see how beautiful they are. It does link back to your page. I think this would be a great way to get more traffic to your pages. Thanks again!
Theresa Miller

<< reply >>

Thank you for signing my Guestbook.
I’m so glad you enjoy Crochnmore.
I’m not sure why the pages don’t “pin” correctly.
Which page were you looking at?
I just followed you on Pinterest.
Here’s my Pinterest:

I managed to pin my website but the rules ask me not to
pin away just to promote myself so I didn’t pin much.

I have been working on this for days and I am doing something wrong on the sides.
The two sides do not look the same. I cannot figure out why I can't end both rows
as row 3. Can you help me? Thanks!
Phyllis Belflower

<< reply >>

See if this video helps:

I re-worded one part of the pattern also:
That might help also.


Guestbook Comments:
I found your site recently and I think it is great, I cannot afford to buy wool and patterns very often so it is good I can get patterns for free, I also enjoy knitting and crocheting for charity.

RE: Shamrock Coaster


<< reply >>

hk is hook... just one of my personal abbreviations that I listed by accident.

Note: I have changed "hk" to hook on the pattern page.

Just found your website and wanted to confirm that crochet instructions are
shown for the USA .

Thanks Kate

<< reply >>

Yes, my patterns contain US terms.
I'm in Kentucky, USA.

Re: Question

I am trying to do the bible cover and do have a problem on round 22 as well as the reverse stiches.
Appreciate your help. Thank you for your efforts in providing these beautiful patterns.
Thanks a million...

<< reply >>

You’re very welcome Abi... hope I can clear this up for you.

For round 22 you work two single crochet stitches around the post of each double crochet
along the row ends.

Then work one single crochet in each unworked loop along the foundation chain.

Work two single crochet stitches around the post of each double crochet along the rows ends
on the next side... then join with a slip stitch in the first single crochet on Round 21.
Now chain 1 and do not turn.


Watch this video I did for the edging on our Basketweave Coaster pattern:

at the very first of the video I join the new yarn and then I talk about working single crochet stitches
around the post of each post stitch in the pattern. You do the same thing with the Bible Cover... work
your two single crochet stitches around the post of each double crochet along the row ends.

Working into each unworked loop means you are crocheting into the loop that is left over where
you worked each stitch along the foundation chain.

Round 23 uses the reverse single crochet stitch...
you can watch the Reverse Single Crochet stitch demonstrated in this video:


Subject: help with a pattern

I have enjoyed your patterns online. So pretty. I bought crochet cotton and steel hooks. I wanted to make crocheted cross bookmarks for my church to give out in times of trouble. However I just cannot crochet! I tried repeatedly. Do you know of a knit pattern for a knit cross bookmark? I looked on line and cant find anything but lace bookmarks. I want a cross bookmark. Any help would be so appreciated.


<< reply >>

I found couple of knitted cross bookmark patterns:

If you would like to try crocheting again try this page:

<< Valerie's Reply >>
Good morning, I saw these two earlier but didnt think they were pretty enough. I have been playing with the crochet cotton and number two knitting needles and that feels right so far. I will pay for a knit pattern as long as I can make knitted cross bookmarks for the church with it.

Any contacts or ideas?

<< my reply >>

I finally found a knitted bookmark pattern for purchase:
didn’t realize how scarce those are.

If I ever get good at designing knit patterns I’ll try one.

<< Valerie's Reply >>

Lisa! What a find! I will order one today. Thanks a zillion. I wrote her to see if I can knit some for church. I cant believe you remembered to look for me. If you see anymore, let me know.

Comments on How to Crochet - How to Wind a Yarn Ball:


Would you show us how to find the center pull thread in a new skein of yarn? Sometimes I get go aggravated trying to find that thread and wreck the skein in the process. I prefer to use my thread from the center of the skein but sometimes it isn't worth the hassle!!
When do you wind your yarn from a akein? I tend to only do it after the skein has been used from the center and has gotten "floppy" or loose. Thank you for snaring your experience with us. It is greatly appreciated


thank you so much for this one, Lisa! I have had a real problem using center-pull skeins after I get about 3/4 of the way through the project. The yarn tends to tie itself into knots, Now all I have to do is pause long enough to wind the yarn into a center-pull ball when the skein gets to that point. thanks bunches!

How to Crochet - How to Wind a Center Pull Ball of Yarn


Subject: Question PLEASE

Good day to you.

My name is Petro and I am a Senior Citizen, writing to you from South Africa –at the moment it is winter in our Country and really- really very cold!!!

I wonder if I could PLEASE ask you to help me look/find a VERY (OLD FASHIONED) pattern for a LACEY CROCHET SHRUG/BEDJACKET.

The specific pattern I am looking for is very plain type pattern – it is a square crochet piece which is then folded over and sewn under the arms (I think) – I did find a bolero and also a crochet shrug pattern which is done like this – but both is just in a plain crochet pattern.

The one I saw (when visiting someone in hospital) was done in a shell pattern –(used as a bedjacket) done in a square- then folded over and then sewn together under the arms BUT it looks like they then went back and crochet an extra frill, also in shell stitch - around the entire square which then forms a wider fold- over collar piece and then obviously also extends the length of the jacket. The sleeve part also has this extra wide frill crocheted on afterwards which then forms like a bell-type wide frilly sleeve – TOOO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!


I am sure a more proficient chrocheter would be able to do this without a pattern – but I am not THAT good YET!! J

With Thanks and regards,

Petronella Heyns

This pattern sounds similar to what you described:

Here are a couple more you might enjoy:


RE: Post on the Crochetnmore Fan Page


Aww, I'll HAVE to make this for my Ashton Drake baby! TY!
Amy Rudolph
I've made several of these. I even adjusted the pattern for my brother-in-law who wanted one for himself. Just measure the circumference of the person's head and divide by two to get the starting width, and measure from the forhead (about the middle) up and over to the back of the neck to get the length before folding up to sew. With this formula, you can make it for anyone!
Jodi N Scott Mayes


RE: Post on the Crochetnmore Fan Page

I am looking for a free pattern for a "teddy bed". It is a net that is hung in the corner of the room to hold teddy bears and other stuffed animals. I had a pattern many yrs ago that I made for my daughters now I need one to make for my granddaughters. Please help me if you can.
Liz Woods


Try this pattern:
Thank you. I found that they are no longer called "teddy beds" when I started my search.

RE: Post on the Crochetnmore Fan Page

Crochet Tip:
Don't be afraid to try different types of materials. I've crocheted with regular yarn, specialty yarns, fabric, embroidery floss, thread, & rope to name a few. You can create very interesting items when you change the material used in a project.


Besides regular and specialty yarn... I've crocheted little delicate thread butterflies. Made crocheted (and knitted) beaded rope necklaces. I've even crocheted with wire. It makes an interesting bracelet.
I agree. Be fearless!
Dana Armstrong


Cut plastic grocery sacks into loops. Join them together (kind of tie them). Wind up a bunch of them to create a ball. Crochet away! There's a Utube video out ther somewhere!
Walli Osborn Martinez


Walli: I actually have a page on how to prepare the bags... I'll post it for everyone to see.


Just making sure you saw this video about making "plarn":

Crochet Tip:
For motivation while working on a large project, mark the first stitch each day so you can see how much you've accomplished. This actually motivates me to see just how much I can do each day.


Love that idea, thank you

One of the many Baby's ABC's Afghans I've made.



I haven't made this one yet, but it's on my to do list.
Carol Rivera- Stive


Have made this for several baby showers. It's always a hit. Not hard to do. One I made I made the letters in pink and the other puff stitch blocks in blue. Took a while, but was very pretty.
Jarra Poe


I've made more of these than I can remember. I'm working on one now in multiple colors... I'll post a picture when I finish.


Wish I had a pictrue of the one I did.
Jarra Poe


I've added written tips to the pattern page for this afghan and included a video link explaining how to read the graph.


This has been on my todo list for so long :/ I really need to make one!
Kath Baer

I made one in yellow for my baby 4 years ago and she hates it. I feel so bad. I'm saving it for one of her kids.

RE: Post on the Crochetnmore Fan Page

Crochet Tip:
Cover a piece of heavy cardboard with checkered fabric to use for blocking crocheted pieces. Pins stick easily in the cardboard, and the checks give an accurate guideline.

Great suggestion!
Peggy Drake

RE: Post on the Crochetnmore Fan Page

I just realized I can contribute a crochet tip!
My sister and I use empty oatmeal canisters for our yarn when we're
working on a large project. We cut a small hole in the lid and feed the
yarn through there.

Crochet Tip: Insert the pattern you are working from in a plastic sheet
protector and use a dry erase marker to mark off the rows completed.

I use a gallon zip lock bag!
Colleen Smith
yep i do that. plus they clip right back in notebook for easy keeping.
Ann Polk Watkins
Same here too Ann and Colleen if I don't have a clear notebook sheet I use a clear Baggie and sometimes Arran wrap
Nancy Grant
The best little gadget I've found is a clicker to keep track of my rows. The plastic sleeve IS a good idea, tho! :0)

Love that!

This book is a wonderful addition to any crochet library.
I've had numerous requests over the years of what to crochet for boys.
Crobots are definitely the answer!
This 96-page book is filled with numerous types of Crobot patterns as well as well-illustrated instructions for the
crochet stitches, assembly stitches and other embellishments used in the patterns.
The patterns are well written, some of the book is written in a small font but the pictures are wonderful. NOTE: This book comes to you with a safety warning regarding the small parts used in the patterns.
Therefore, please use your own discretion as to the age of the child you intend the gift for.

I have to tell you about this new book.'s Fabulous & Flirty Crochet
I'm so happy to have it in my crochet library.Katherine Lee has an eye for style and a definite knack for creating beautiful crochet patterns.
I was really happy with the large colorful project photos.
There's something for everyone!
The aspect of Fabulous and Flirty Crochet that stood out to me was the section on the yarns
used in the patterns. One page shows "actual size" photos of the yarns which makes it super
easy to substitute other yarns if you want to. For those who stay strictly to the recommended
yarn in a pattern Katherine has included a yarn resource list. The projects are very fashionable
and perfect for gift giving... though I'm sure you'll have to make something for yourself :o)
I can't wait to try the Flirty Skirt and the Ruffled Strap Tank.

Dad's pager went off, summoning him to the hospital, where he is an anesthetist.

As he raced toward the hospital, a patrol car sped up behind him--lights flashing. Dad hung his stethoscope

out the window to signal that he was on an emergency call.

Within seconds, came the police officer's hand in response, dangling a pair of handcuffs out the window.


Every year, it seems, we would get on a highway a few miles out of the city, and mom would wail,
"Oh my goodness! I think left the iron on." And almost every year we would turn around and go back.

But as I recall, not once was it was ever plugged in. She often had the same fear that all our earthly
possessions would disappear in a fire caused by her forgetfulness.

When I was about 14 years old, we were headed out of Chicago for Lake Geneva, Wisconsin and,
sure enough, Mom gasped, "I just know I left the iron on. "

My father didn't say a word, just pulled over onto the shoulder of the road, got out, opened
the trunk and handed her the iron.

Employee: Excuse me, sir, may I talk to you?

Boss: Sure, come on in. What can I do for you?

Employee: Well, sir, as you know, I have been an employee of this prestigious firm for over ten years.

Boss: Yes.

Employee: I won't beat around the bush. Sir, I would like a raise. I currently have four companies after me and so I
decided to talk to you first.

Boss: A raise? I would love to give you a raise, but this is just not the right time.

Employee: I understand your position, and I know that the current economic downturn has had a negative impact on
sales, but you must also take into consideration my hard work, proactiveness, and loyalty to this company for over a

Boss: Taking into account these factors, and considering I don't want to start a brain drain, I'm willing to offer you
a ten percent raise and an extra five days of vacation time. How does that sound?

Employee: Great! It's a deal! Thank you, sir!

Boss: Before you go, just out of curiosity, what companies were after you?

Employee: Oh, the Electric Company, the Gas Company, the Water Company, and the Mortgage Company!

Two men went fishing. One man was an experienced fisherman, the other wasn't. Every time the experienced fisherman caught a big fish, he put it in his ice chest to keep it fresh. Whenever the inexperienced fisherman caught a big fish, he threw it back. The experienced fisherman watched this go on all day and finally got tired of seeing this man waste good fish.

"Why do you keep throwing back all the big fish you catch?" he asked.

The inexperienced fisherman replied, "I only have a small frying pan."

A man walks into the pharmacy and asks the pharmacist,

"Do you have any acetylsalicylic acid?"

"Do you mean aspirin?" asks the pharmacist.

"That's it! I can never remember that word!"


Jill's car was unreliable and she called John for a ride every time it broke down. One day
John got yet another one of those calls.

"What happened this time?" he asked.
"My brakes went out," Jill said.
"Can you come and get me?"

"Where are you?" John asked.
"I'm in the drugstore," Jill responded.

"And where's the car?" John asked.
Jill replied, "It's in here with me."

A minister in a little church had been having trouble with the collections.

One Sunday he announced, "Now, before we pass the collection plate, I would like to request that the person who stole the chickens from Farmer Condill's henhouse please refrain from giving any money to the Lord. The Lord doesn't want money from a thief!"

The collection plate was passed around, and for the first time in months everybody gave.


The young boy protested vigorously when his mother asked him to take his little sister along fishing.

“The last time she came,” he objected, “I didn’t catch a single fish.”

“I’ll talk to her,” his mother said, “and I promise this time she won’t make any noise.”

“It wasn’t the noise, Mom,” the boy replied.
“She ate all my bait.”

My husband is a service technician for an exterminating company.
One of the rules is that he must confirm his appointments by phone the
night before a service call.
One evening, he called a customer and said to the man who answered, "Hi,
This is Garry from the pest-control company -- your wife phoned us."
There was silence for a moment, and then my husband heard the man say,
"Honey, someone wants to speak to you about your relatives."

Outraged by the high charges that the computer service wanted for repair work, one employee asked her co-worker which service she used.

"My sons," was the reply. "They both have degrees in Computer science."

"So you get that kind of work done for nothing," the friend marveled.

The co-worker smiled. "Actually, I figured that it cost me about $140,000 for my kids to fix my computer for free."
