Left Hand Version
I love this pattern and appreciate you giving it away but my question is I am left handed and not for sure how to convert it to left handed to make it look correctly. can you give me any suggestions? I want to make an afghan with as I have made the attic window quilt. Thank you Dawn
<< reply >>
I hadn’t really thought about making a left-handed version.
For a right-handed crocheter the foundation chain is made and when Row 1 is worked
the yarn tail is on the left side. For a left-handed crocheter the yarn tail will be on the right side.
I believe you can make the Row Count Attic Window Afghan Square a left-handed pattern by working the color changes in reverse.
What I mean by that is:
Work Row 1 as stated in the pattern.
Where Row 2 says:
“Ch1, turn. 1CB, 27CC”
Reverse that and work
“Ch1, turn. 27CC, 1CB”
Where Row 3 says:
“Ch1, turn. 26CC, 2CB”
Reverse that and work
“Ch1, turn. 2CB, 26CC”
Change each additional row the same way.
Please let me know how this works for you.

Why am I not able to print directions to your patterns when it says free patterns?
<< reply >>
I'm not sure why but the Firefox browser does not allow
me to print the pattern by clicking the "Print just the pattern on this Page" button.
I am able to print the pattern by using Internet Explorer.
If you can access a different browser... try to print using it.
Another option: Select the text of the pattern and copy it.
Then paste it into a word program and print from there.
If all else fails... email me the pattern you want and I will email it to you.
RE: Guestbook Message
I love your site and I am glad you share your believes with the world. Thank you so much for that. And also thank you so much for the crochet patterns. You are a blessing.
RE: Guestbook Message
I love to crochet and dont have a lot of time to spare, I am always looking for fast and fun projects to create for craft shows.
Thank you for forming another crocheters website.
I just discovered you are a believer and how wonderful a testimony. I also believe in Jesus as my Savior and what a wonderful Lord he is. I really enjoy reading other testimonies on you web site. You are indeed a blessing and I hope you continue to post on your web site the miracles and blessing of the Lord. I love to crochet but unfortunately at times like some of the others on the site don't quite understand the pattern instructions and after hours of trying some time hours even days, I just like one lady throw it in the drawer and forget about it. I just finished a rose afghan which at first was difficult but when I put it down and went back the next day it came together. I made a sample square out of extra thread I had so as not to fray my yarn for the afghan. I find sometime that is the best way to see how it comes together and then do it with the yarn for your project. I can't believe how simple it was and it was done with granny squares and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed making it and how beautiful it came out. I thank the Lord for the ability to do such beautiful work. I am saving it for my granddaughter for when she marries. I know it will be something she will appreciate and cherish and hopefully pass on to the next generation. Things like that are a keepsake to say the least. Well thanks so much for your web site, continue being a blessing and sharing your life with everyone. It is very encouraging and helpful to all of us crocheters out here. God bless you and your family and your business.
Let the be light and joy in many the city with voice of Gospel and out pouring of the Holy Spirit and healing to everyone who will take toward Jesus and be touch of heaven in realy life with God and love of victory of Jesus,
thanks and bless, keijo sweden
As I was reading Gracie Knowles' comments, I remembered my great-grandmother teaching me to crochet, and my grandmother teaching me to knit. When I asked my great-grandmother about tatting, she gave me her shuttle and told me all she could tat was knots -- and she wished me luck. I learned to tat at a craft store, and have found many helpful videos online. Gracie, have you tried this resource?
Gracies comments can be found in this issue:

Dear Ms. Hamblin,
I am in the middle of crocheting the William's Baby Hat: am on R6, repeating rs 2 & 3, and it seems to me that if I continue 18 more rows the hat would be too tall.
From rows 4-9 to rep 2 & 3 three times. Please check for me if I am doing it right. I am a new learner and instructions don't are too clear to me; takes me many reading to understand. I bought a book to learn, and I would like to get the Encyclopedia of Crochet, but it's too expensive for me.
Please help me finish this project.
Thank you for your time,
<< reply >>
Rs 4-9: Rep Rs 2&3 three times.
This instruction means you repeat Rs 2 and 3 for Rs 4-9.
In other words...
R4 – work R2
R5 – work R3
R6 – work R2
R7 – work R3
R8 – work R2
R9 – work R3
Hope this helps.
lisa i want so bad to do the hanky love it, but how do you put the crochet part on the hanky??

i have a question how many squares should I make to make a afghan
please e-mail me back
<< reply >>
You can make an afghan any size you like.
Each square is 7.5" x 7.5"
If you want your afghan to be 6 squares wide and 7 squares tall
the finished afghan should be approximately 45" x 52.5"
plus the extra fabric you get with which ever joining method you use.

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

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.

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.

While I was making a huge batch of snickerdoodle cookies,
I asked my ten-year-old to read the recipe and ingredients
off the box to me, doubling them as he went along. He did
as he was told. His first instruction: "Preheat the oven to
I am a first-grade teacher and a new empty nester. One night I was
trying out an art project: making a person with simple materials. I
took a coat hanger, attached a paper-plate face, put a shirt on the
hanger and stuffed it. Then I sat it on the couch to see how it
Later that evening my son walked in the door, home for a surprise
visit. Taking one look at my coat-hanger friend sitting on the couch,
he said, "Mom, it's not that bad, is it?"
My Parents had not been out together in quite some time.
One Saturday, as Mom was finishing the dinner dishes, my father stepped up behind her.
"Would you like to go out, girl?" he asked.
Not even turning around, my mother quickly replied, "Oh, yes, I'd love to!"
They had a wonderful evening, and it wasn't until the end of it that Dad confessed.
His question had actually been directed to the family dog, lying near Mom's feet on
the kitchen floor.
On her golden wedding anniversary, a grandmother
revealed the secret of her long and happy marriage.
"On my wedding day, I decided to choose 10 of my
husband's faults, which (for the sake of our marriage)
I would overlook," she explained.
A guest asked her to name some of the faults.
"To tell the truth," she replied, "I never did get around
to listing them; but whenever my husband did something
that made me hopping mad, I would say to myself,
'Lucky for him that's one of the 10.'
A jockey is in the parade ring discussing race tactics with
the horse's trainer. The trainer tells the jockey that this
is the worst horse he has ever seen. It has had 23 races and
finished last in every one of them. If it doesn't win today
the milkman will be using it for deliveries in the morning.
The jockey mounts up and takes the horse down to the start.
The race begins and the horse is immediately 10 lengths
behind the pack. So the jockey gives the horse an sharp thwap
on the shoulder.
He then gives him a series of strikes on the rump.
He then gives him two wallops right on the hindquarters.
The horse comes to a sudden stop, turns to the jockey and says
"Give it a rest with that whip, will ya, buddy? I have to be
up at four in the morning to deliver milk."
My first grade daughter and her friend both
needed new shoes as school approached.
The friend got in the car one morning and
finally had gotten her new shoes.
"Beth," I commented, "I see you got new
shoes. Where did you get them?"
"At the store," she answered.
"Which one?" I asked.
She began looking at her new shoes and
after a pause said, "Both of them."
When Little Johnny's family moved into a new
double wide trailer one of their former
neighbors dropped by. Seeing Johnny out front,
he asked, "So, how do you like your new place?"
"It's terrific," Little Johnny answered. "I have my
own room, my brother has his own room, and
my sister has her own room. But poor mom
is still in with dad."
A 4-year-old was at the pediatrician for a checkup. As the doctor
examined her ears he said, "Ohh, I see Big Bird in here?"
The little girl stayed silent.
Next, the doctor took a tongue depressor and looked down her throat.
"Wow! I see Cookie Monster down there?"
Again, the little girl was silent.
Then the doctor put a stethoscope to her chest. As he listened to her
heartbeat, he said, "I think I hear Barney in there?"
"Oh, no!" the little girl corrected. "Jesus is in my heart. Barney
is on my underwear."
A man bought a parrot at an auction after some heavy bidding. "I hope this bird talks," he told the auctioneer.
"Talk," the auctioneer replied. "Who do you think has been bidding against you for the past ten minutes?"
Hospital regulations require a wheelchair for patients being
discharged. However, while working as a student nurse,
I found one elderly gentleman--already dressed and sitting
on the bed with a suitcase at his feet--who insisted he
didn't need my help to leave the hospital.
After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly
let me wheel him to the elevator. On the way down
I asked him if his wife was meeting him.
"I don't know," he said. "She's still upstairs in the
bath- room changing out of her hospital gown."
My daughter worked in my law office while she
attended graduate school. One morning a call came in for
her. I said she wasn't in yet and offered to take a message.
The caller said she'd phone back later.
At 11:00 a.m., the caller tried again, and I reported that
she had gone to lunch.
The last call came in at 3:30 p.m. "I'm sorry," I said,
"she's left for the day. May I take a message?"
"Yes," the caller replied. "How can I get a job with you?"
The homeowner got into his old work clothes one Saturday
morning and set about all the chores his wife had been
urging him to do all week. He cleaned the garage, pruned the
hedge, and was halfway through mowing the lawn when a woman
pulled up in the driveway and called out her window, "Say,
what do you get for yard work?"
The fellow thought for a moment and then answered, "The lady
who lives here lets me live with her."
