When you are working with many color changes it can be difficult to keep your yarn from tangling. You can purchase yarn bobbins like these to help with this problem... or, make your own yarn bobbins using scraps of cardboard.

I would like to see instructions on how to do inside corners in
both single crochet and double crochet.
<< Reply >>
Thanks for writing.
I’m not sure what you mean by “inside corners”?
<< Judy's Reply >>
I am making a contour rug for my toilet. After I crochet the body of the rug I have to put extensions on both ends to go up and around the toilet. I am putting a border around the rug. This is a six-round border. I can do the outside corners, but the inside corners are confusing me. If you think of crocheting around a “T”, maybe you can see the picture.
<< Lisa's Reply >>
Now I understand...
when working around a crocheted piece for outside corners we always add extra stitches to make the turn. When working within the inside of a 90 degree angle you need to omit stitches... you can do this by skipping one or more stitches (this leaves a hole)
by working a decrease over 2 or more stitches in the “inside corner”.
To work a single crochet decrease over two stitches do this:
Insert hook in 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.
To work a double crochet decrease over two stitches do this:
Work a double crochet in the first stitch without completing the very last step (leave the last two loops on the hook),
then double crochet in the next stitch without completing the last step. You should have three loops on the hook.
Yarn over and draw through all the loops. Decrease made.
I would love to see a picture when you finish.
Thank you for everything you do.
I have have resubmitted my new email address for your newletter.
Is there a central location accepting items for survivors of Storm Sandy?
<< reply >>
Thank you so much for signing the Crochet N More Guestbook!
I’ve seen many news articles listing various drop-off locations for items
for Hurricane Sandy Victims but many of those have discontinued collecting
material items. The American Red Cross is taking monetary donations:
When making a monetary donation be sure to specify that you want it to
go to Hurricane Sandy Victims.
Your web-site is great, once again. It shows all the hard work you put into to it.....keep up the great work.

RE: Post on the Crochetnmore Fan Page
Do you have any easy tutorials/patterns for a bulky scarf using the N or P crochet hook?
Try this pattern:
My pattern states:
DC next 5 ch sps together, ch 1. - can you please explain.
Thank you so much.
<< reply >>
>>>DC next 5 ch sps together, ch 1.
This means you will work a double crochet decrease over the next 5 chain spaces.
Do this.... work one double crochet in each chain space without completing the
very last step of each double crochet stitch. You should end up with 6 loops on
your hook... now yarn over and draw through all 6 loops to complete the decrease.
Now chain 1

Re: Happy Thanksgiving!
You as well Lisa!
Your doggie sweater has been such a wonderful pattern for me to play with over the years. You posted 4 pics of my dog Padiee about 4-5 years ago. Well, she is now older and heavier and I've had to tweak it again. I also have 2 Shihtzu's now that wear sweaters and I can't wait to show you what I've worked up so you can post it on your website!! This pattern is so easy to work with. I've documented how I've made them so hopefully others can make sweaters for their babies. Happy Holidays!
Thank you Candace... I received the photos... love them all.
I will try to post them soon!
RE: How to Crochet - Tips about Baby's ABC's Afghan
Beautiful blanket....i have questions though....the graph pattern, is it like doing filet crochet? I know how to do filet crochet. But i dont know how to change colors that good. Im afraid to start a project then it comes out that i have been doing it wrong all along. Please help if u can. Thank you so much. adele
<< reply >>
This graph is not filet crochet... and you can make the entire afghan using only one color. I've made many of these in one solid color before and they are very nice. Each square on the graph is either a single crochet stitch or a single crochet puff stitch.. you just follow the graph working the indicated stitches. Hope this helps.
RE: How to Crochet - Loop Stitch
Thank you so much...I'm making a Koala that requires this stitch for the inner ear and I couldn't figure out how to complete the stitch from the instructions given in the book. Thanks again, your way is so much simpler.

You're very welcome... glad the video helped!
RE: Read A Pattern
I picked up a free scarf recipe to make for a secret santa gift...on the pattern, it says: row 1 (right side): DC in 4th and 5th ch from hook, *ch5, sk 5chs, dc in next 3 chs; Repeat from * across, turn-24 ch-5 spaces.
Now...I'm pretty sure it means double crocet in the 4th and 5th chains from my hook (on the foundation chain), [then to chain 5, skip 5 chains, double crochet in the next 3 chains] and repeat across, but the turn -25 ch -5 has me REALLY confused...what am I supposed to do? Turn the work and basically begin row 2???
Thanks so much for your time!

You are correct about the double crochet.
turn-24 ch-5 spaces
means you turn the work at the end of the row in order
to proceed with the instructions for the next row.
the part that says 24 ch-5 spaces is a reference only...
you know you did the row correctly if you have 24 spaces
where you made 5 chains on that row.
words can be short and easy to speak,
but their echoes are truly endless.

Teacher: George, go to the map and find North America.
George: Here it is.
Teacher: Correct. Now, class, who discovered America?
A freshman in high school brought home his class picture to his mom.
She asked him to write something soft and mushy on the back of it.
So he wrote "Oatmeal."
Each year, Sam and Sarah went to the state fair, where Sam would ask Sarah to take a ride with him in an open biplane for $10. But each year, Sarah would refuse, saying, "Ten dollars is $10."
Finally, after several years of this, the pilot offered to take them for a ride for free if neither of them would say a word during the flight.
Sam and Sarah agreed, and off they flew as the pilot took them through loops, spins and dives. They never said a word.
As they landed, the pilot said over his shoulder to Sam, "I thought for sure you'd say something with all the maneuvers I did."
"I should have said something when Sarah fell out," Sam replied. "But $10 is $10."
Pupil: The flight to Egypt. See, that’s Mary, Joseph, Jesus and Pontius, the pilot.
Teacher: Who can tell me what a “mystery” is?
Pupil: A mystery is when someone colors on the table, but no one knows who did it.
Driving along in the car one day, listening to music, Carol, a mother of two, was delighted when one of her favorite tunes came on the radio. Getting into the rhythm and dancing around in her seat to the beat of the music, she turned to her husband and said, "Hey remember the days when we used to go clubbing? We should do it again sometime."
In the back of the car, the couple's teenage daughter began making retching noises. "Ugh - you two? Going to a club? You've got to be kidding! You're far too old...Everyone would just stare at you!"
"Come on," said Carol, "It doesn't have to be a club for teenagers. There must be places for people of our 'slightly more mature years' to go."
"Yeah, there is," said the daughter. "It's called Bingo!"
A 6-year old boy asked his mother if it's true that God made man from dust.
"Yes, son, it's true that we're made from dust, and to dust we shall return," replied his mom.
"Well," said the boy, "I just looked under my bed, and there's someone either coming or going."
Little Johnny returned from his first time riding the bus from school. His mother asked him who the bus driver was, and he proudly stated that it was Elmer Gency. Knowing full well that wasn’t the bus driver’s name, she asked Johnny again.
“But, Mom, I know that’s right,” said Johnny. “It was written right on the back door of the bus:
I had finished my Christmas shopping early and had wrapped all the presents. Having two curious children, I had to find a suitable hiding place. I chose an ideal spot—the furnace room. I stacked the presents and covered them with a blanket, positive they'd remain undiscovered.
When I went to get the gifts to put them under the tree, I lifted the blanket and there, stacked neatly on top of my gifts, were presents addressed to "Mom and Dad, From the Kids."
Our son and his wife took their two children to the store to see Santa Claus. However, when it was time for three-year-old, Maude to go up and talk to Santa, she became shy and wouldn't go.
Several times, Santa asked her to come to him, but
she refused. Finally, he asked, "Would you like a
"Yes" Maude replied.
"Can you come get it?" Santa asked.
Maude thought about this for a moment, then said, "Can you throw it?"
As a club owner, I had hired a drummer and
a piano player to entertain my customers. After
several evenings of performances, I discovered that the drummer had walked away with some of
I notified the police and he was subsequently hauled off to jail.
Desperate for another drummer on short notice, I called a friend who knew some musicians.
"What happened to the drummer you had?" he asked.
"I had him arrested," I replied.
There was a pause on the other end of the phone.
"How badly did he play?"
A gushy reporter told Jack Nicklaus,
"You are spectacular, your name is synonymous with the game of golf.
You really know your way around the course. What's your secret?"
Nicklaus replied, "The holes are numbered!"
Not expecting to do well on the economics exam, Bill was heartened by the first question: In any given year, and to the nearest ton, how much wheat did the United States export?
Smiling confidently, he wrote, "In 1492, none."
