MAGIC RING (a/k/a Magic Loop; a/k/a Magic Circle)
What is a "magic circle" I've seen that phrase used in a lot of patterns
lately and don't know what it means or how to make...Thank you
A Magic Ring is a cool way to start a pattern that omits the hole
you usually get when you begin a pattern that is worked in the round.
This should help:

I need help. I found a pattern for a large (6") star, made several and sewed them together with a lot of open space. If's supposed to be an afghan, but it's too flimsy. I need to fill in the open spaces, but I don't know how. Any ideas? Maybe back and forth, but how? It needs to be a quick way since there are so many!! Help> Thanks a lot for any ideas.
<< reply >>
This would depend on what size the openings between your motifs is?
If the openings are substantial enough... you could make additional
fill-in motifs to fill in those spaces.
Hello......I have a question. I am making the Doll Hoodie....I do not see where the hood is attached....please help. Thanks.
<< reply >>
Thank you so much for letting me know I had
omitted this information. I have added the
following to the pattern page:
To attach the hood, center it along the neckline edge.
Using the same yarn, whip stitch the pieces to join.
I have an interesting stitch that I would like to work, I am not sure how I drop a loop though.
Your comments would be grateful appreciated
<< reply >>
If you are referring to the Loop Stitch you
just let go of the loop once you work the stitch.
This video might help you visualize it:

This is a Single Crochet Decrease stitch (SC DEC)

Insert the hook in the next stitch,
draw up a loop, (two loops on hook),
insert hook in next stitch, draw up a loop (3 loops on hook),
Yarn Over and draw through all 3 loops.
Just read your testimony and enjoyed it so much. Love testimonies of those who know Christ as Savior. Thanks for being a witness this way.
I have used your patterns for many years and love them. I have a suggestion for your future consideration. I printed off your latest pattern "Puffs Around Dishcloth". I was going to take it with me to a meeting and Fortunetly read it just before leaving and discovered that I wasn't sure how to do a sc ps. Fortunetly you did have the instructions on your site below the pattern.
May I suggest that instructions for an unusual stitch be included in the pattern. I would have had a big problem if I hadn't read the pattern and checked your site for the instructions before leaving the house.
As always you do a great job.

can give me. I have a bichon frise. Ruth

Comments in regard to the above link on the Crochetnmore Facebook page:
This is a good age group to be learning a crochet or knitting hobby. I was 7yrs old, grandma taught me to crochet and my mother insisted I had to learn knitting from her. I did take time out, but after being retired, I never miss a day of crocheting for a group giving to needy ones. I have found this very rewarding in everyway.
Love this! My 5th grade junior girl scouts recently expressed a wish to learn after seeing me working on a project! I'm hoping that I can teach them next year and that we can learn enough to make some scarves for our local homeless shelter!
My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was about 3 years old and in the fifth grade our teacher said for "everyone" to bring a pattern and that would be our art project. The boys all grumbled but one of them won a ribbon for his in the... fair. According to my teacher my pattern was one of the toughest....a square doily with pineapples on each corner with a large ruffle around it...don't know that I'd tackle it today...but then I could see much better. Just love the idea of teaching youngsters to knit, crochet and everything else. The only thing I regretted was I never learned to tat.
words can be short and easy to speak,
but their echoes are truly endless.

SweaterBabe.com'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.

'Our Father, Who does art in heaven,
Harold is His name.
After the christening of his baby brother in church,
Jason sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car.
His father asked him three times what was wrong.
Finally, the boy replied,
'That preacher said he wanted us brought up in a Christian home,
and I wanted to stay with you guys.'
A Sunday school teacher asked her children as they
were on the way to church service,
'And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?'
One bright little girl replied,
'Because people are sleeping.'
A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin 5, and Ryan 3
The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake.
Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson..
'If Jesus were sitting here, He would say,
'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.'
Kevin turned to his younger brother and said,
' Ryan , you be Jesus !'
A little boy was overheard praying:
'Lord, if you can't make me a better boy, don't worry about it.
I'm having a real good time like I am.'
One particular four-year-old prayed,
'And forgive us our trash baskets
as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets.'
A father was at the beach with his children
when the four-year-old son ran up to him,
grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore
where a seagull lay dead in the sand..
'Daddy, what happened to him?' the son asked.
'He died and went to Heaven,' the Dad replied.
The boy thought a moment and then said,
'Did God throw him back down?'
A wife invited some people to dinner..
At the table, she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said,
'Would you like to say the blessing?'
'I wouldn't know what to say,' the girl replied.
'Just say what you hear Mommy say,' the wife answered.
The daughter bowed her head and said,
'Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?'
Paul Newman founded the Hole in the Wall Gang
Camp for children stricken with cancer, AIDS, and blood diseases. One afternoon, he and his wife,
Joanne Woodward, stopped by to have lunch with
the kids. A counselor at a nearby table, suspecting
the young patients wouldn't know Newman was a famous movie star, explained, That's the man who
made this camp possible. Maybe you've seen his picture on his salad dressing bottle?' Blank stares. 'Well, you've probably seen his face on his lemonade carton.' An eight-year-old girl perked up. 'How long was he missing?'
One summer evening a mother of three, very active small boys was playing cops and robbers with them in the back yard after dinner.
One of the boys "shot" his mother and yelled, "Bang! You're dead." She slumped to the ground and when she didn't get up for 20 minutes, a neighbor came over to see if she had been hurt in the fall.
When the neighbor bent over, the overworked mother opened one eye and said, "Shhh. Don't give me away. This is the only chance I've had to rest all day."
A butcher fresh out of his Canadian trade school applies for and
receives a job at a meat processing business. His first task is
to skin and cut up the wildlife kills of local hunters, chopping
them into serving portions.
His very first job is to process a moose and package it for the
The job takes all day but he finally finishes up. He's got chops,
flank steak, ribs, sirloin, etc. all bagged, marked and stored
in the freezer. But after he finishes processing all the parts
he knows, there's still a small pile of unidentifiable parts.
At a loss as to what to do with them, he bags them up for the
freezer, also, and labels the bag:
Florida officer pulls over an eighty-six-year-old woman because her hand
signals were confusing.
"First you put your hand up, like you're turning right, then you wave
your hand up and down, then you turn left," said the officer.
"I decided not to turn right," she explains.
"Then why the up and down?" asks the officer.
"Officer," she sniffs, "I was erasing!"
