UNWORKED LOOPS OF FOUNDATION CHAIN
How to Crochet - Crochet into Unworked Loops along Foundation Chain
Sometimes a pattern will instruct you to work stitches into a foundation chain
and then continue working stitches back up the opposite side of the foundation
chain. To do this you place the indicated stitches in the unworked loops of each
of the chain stitches.

What's your question?
<< Nancy's Reply >>
thank you for responding!
I have crocheted before but not in a very long time. I'm working on an afghan and I'm done with the body and now working on the edging. The pattern says put 119 sc evenly spaced down the side...? The pattern didn't say crochet so many rows (in the body) only to end up with the body being 35 inches long (which mine is). How do I determine where to put the 119 sc evenly?
<< Lisa's Reply >>
I’ve seen instructions like this a lot myself and it used to be so confusing to me also.
Think of it this way... The area of the project that requires the stitches must first be divided into sections. Then it’s time for a little math. You need to know how many stitches you need to add per section. This isn't always exact... as in your project.
You mentioned that your project is 35 inches and you need to place those 119 stitches evenly across that area.
119 stitches divided by 35” = 3.4 stitches per inch
Since this isn't a whole number... you will need to adjust accordingly... placing 3 or 4 inches in each section.
When your 35 inch piece is divided into one inch sections... you can place 3 stitches in all of the odd numbered sections
and 4 stitches in all of the even numbered sections for a total of 122 stitches.
18 sections have 3 stitches that will equal 54 stitches (18x3=54)
and 17 stitches have 4 stitches that will equal 68 stitches (17x4=68)
the total of 54 plus 68 is 122
To adjust this from 122 stitches to 119 stitches... evenly omit 3 stitches along the edge by dividing the 35 inch project into 3 sections and placing 3 stitches in a section that only required 4 in the center of each of those 3 sections.
(I hope this makes sense as it is difficult to explain in writing).
i love your site,,awsome
Thanks for the patterns!
I just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work you put into the site and the newsletters. And while my personal religious beliefs may not always agree with yours, I respect both your beliefs and your willingness to share them. I wonder, though, if you might not want to add the 11th Commandment as it is my favorite!
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
John 13:34 (Eng Standard).
Keep up the great work!
All really great but what does this mean? ch 2#, or what does this symbol mean in a crochet pattern - # ?
<< reply >>
Was this in one of my patterns?
If so, which pattern as it’s probably a typo.
Symbols are used to set apart a set of instructions that
will be repeated later on.

RE: I am looking for Christmas gifts to crochet . Any suggestions ??
Something that works up quick is best .
Coaster sets, scarves and kitchen sets make great gifts.
Do you have a particular item you like to make?
I was just searching around the internet for some crochet patterns, and came across your site. I enjoyed so very much reading the things you have on there, especially your testimony. It gave me a real thrill. It is so wonderful to find Christian folks, whether online, at church, or in everyday life. My husband and I are in our 70’s, and have failing health, especially my husband who has 3 types of cancers, and I have had a number of surgeries over the years too, and am going for another full knee replacement surgery in two days. I will pray for the Lord’s best blessings on you and your family, and your web site. When we were able we had a Nursing Home Ministry and found so much joy in ministering to the folks in those places. I have a web page too which speaks of our ministering to those folks in nursing homes, as well as poetry and testimonies. If you would like to see it, you can go to: http://www.angelfire.com/home/mccrackencove/index.html
It needs some updating, and I will get to that later after my surgery and physical therapy, but I hope it is still in fair shape. I just had to send you a note while I was enjoying your web site. God bless you and your family.

Karl listened from the other room as his wife
Holly patiently said to their five-year-old,
"Please pick up your toys, Maureen."
After a few minutes, Holly again reminded their
daughter. Finally Holly asked, "Why aren't you
picking your things up?"
Karl rolled his eyes when he heard Maureen answer,
"I'm playing house and I'm the dad, so I don't
know where anything goes."
Bubba and Clem find three hand grenades and decide to take them to the police station.
"What if one of them explodes before we get there?" asks Clem.
"Don't worry about it," says Bubba. "We'll just lie and tell them we only found two."
A father was reading the Bible to his little
girl before bedtime one night. He was on the
first chapter of Genesis. "In the beginning, the world was without form and void," the
"And God said, 'Let there be light.' And God separated the light from the dark."
"I know what happens next!" the little girl exclaimed excitedly.
"What happens next?" asked the father, smiling.
The girl replied, "God did two loads of laundry!"
One night at McChord Air Force Base, I was dispatched to check out the security fence where an alarm had gone off. The fence was at the end of the base runway. When I got to the scene, I found a raccoon was the culprit, so I ran around and flapped my arms to scare the animal away.
Suddenly an air-traffic controller came over the
public-address system and announced loudly, "Attention to
the airman at the end of the runway. You are cleared for
As soon as I stepped into the urgent-care facility in my hometown, I could see the place was packed with patients. The nurses and doctors all seemed frazzled. I discovered just how frazzled when a doctor walked into the room, pulled out his examination light, pointed it in my ear, and instructed me, "Say, 'Ah.'"
A young man was sitting next to me in one of the two "husband chairs" in a ladies' clothing store. After 30 minutes and five outfits, the fellow's wife came out of the change room again.
He looked at her and immediately said:
"That looks good on you. Get that one."
"Honey," she replied, "this is what I was wearing when we came in."
An elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years. He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%. The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again."
The gentleman replied, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three times!"
A crumbling old church building needed remodeling,
so, during his sermon, the preacher made an
impassioned appeal looking directly at the richest man in town. At the end of the sermon, the rich man stood up and announced, "Pastor, I will contribute $1,000."
Just then, plaster fell from the ceiling and struck the rich man on the shoulder.
He promptly stood back up and shouted, "Pastor, I will increase my donation to $5,000."
Before he could sit back down, plaster fell on him again, and again he virtually screamed, "Pastor, I will double my last pledge."He sat down, and a larger chunk of plaster fell on his head.
He stood up once more and hollered, "Pastor, I will give $20,000!"
This prompted a deacon to shout, "Hit him again, Lord! Hit him again!"
One morning, as I went to the freezer door, I asked my wife, "What should I take out for dinner?"
Without a moment's hesitation, she replied, 'Me.'
My sister-in-law decided to go on a diet after a recent trip to the store with her grandson. They'd stopped in front of a pantyhose display, and, as she chose a package, he read out loud: "Q … U … E … E … N … S … I … Z … E.
Grandma!" he exclaimed, "You wear the same size as our waterbed!"
Last year at Thanksgiving, my mom went to my sister's house for the traditional holiday feast. Knowing how gullible my sister is, my mom decided to play a trick. She told my sister that she needed something from the store and asked if my sister wouldn't mind going out to get it.
When my sister left the house, my mom took the turkey out of the oven, removed the mixed stuffing, and inserted a Cornish hen into the turkey cavity...then re-stuffed the turkey. She then placed the bird(s) back into the oven.
When it was time for dinner, my sister pulled the turkey out of the oven and proceeded to remove the stuffing. When her serving spoon hit something, she reached in and pulled out the little bird.
With a look of total shock on her face, my mother exclaimed, "Barbara, you've cooked a pregnant bird!"
At the reality of this horrifying news, my sister started to cry. It took the entire family almost two hours to convince her that turkeys lay eggs!
Dwight Nelson recently told a true story about a pastor. He had a kitten that climbed up a tree in his backyard and then was afraid to come down. The pastor coaxed, offered warm milk, etc. The kitty would not come down. The tree was not sturdy enough to climb, so the pastor decided that if he tied a rope to his car and drove away so that the tree bent down, he could then reach up and get the kitten. He did all this, checking his progress in the car frequently, then figured if he went just a little bit further, the tree would be bent sufficiently for him to reach the kitten.
But as he moved a little further forward....the rope broke. The tree went "boing!" and the kitten instantly sailed through the air-out of sight. The pastor felt terrible. He walked all over the neighborhood asking people if they'd seen a little kitten. No. Nobody had seen a stray kitten. So he prayed, "Lord, I just commit this kitten to Your keeping," and went on about his business.
A few days later he was at the grocery store, and met one of his church members. He happened to look into her shopping cart and was amazed to see cat food. Now this woman was a cat hater and everyone knew it, so he asked her, "Why are you buying cat food when you hate cats so much?"
She replied, "You won't believe this," and told him how her little girl had been begging her for a cat, but she kept refusing. Then a few days before, the child had begged again, so the mom finally told her little girl, "Well, if God gives you a cat, I'll let you keep it." (You can see where this is going). She told the pastor, "I watched my child go out in the yard, get on her knees, and ask God for a cat. And really, Pastor, you won't believe this, but I saw it with my own eyes. A kitten suddenly came flying out of the blue sky, with its paws spread out, and landed right in front of her."
