RE: Request for Tutorial

Would you happen to have made a tutorial on how to crochet the crocodile stitch? I have just learned about this stitch and need help with trying to make it. Thanks.




YouTube has lots of videos showing how to make the Crocodile stitch. Here is the link:















"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may
look back and realize they were the big things.

~~ Robert Brault ~~



And He entered and was passing through Jericho. And behold, there was a man called by the name of Zaccheus; and he was a chief tax-gatherer, and he was rich. And he was trying to see who Jesus was, and he was unable because of the crowd, for he was small in stature. And he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree in order to see Him, for He was about to pass through that way. And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and said to him, "Zaccheus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house." And he hurried and came down, and received Him gladly. And when they saw it, they all began to grumble, saying, "He has gone to be the guest of a man who is a sinner." And Zaccheus stopped and said to the Lord, "Behold, Lord, half of my possessions I will give to the poor, and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will give back four times as much. " And Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because he, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost."

Luke 19:1-10

The next day the multitude that stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other small boat there, except one, and that Jesus had not entered with His disciples into the boat, but that His disciples had gone away alone. There came other small boats from Tiberias near to the place where they ate the bread after the Lord had given thanks. When the multitude therefore saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they themselves got into the small boats, and came to Capternaum, seeking Jesus. And when they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, "Rabbi, when did You get here?" Jesus answered them and said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves, and were filled. Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man shall give to you, for on Him the Father, even God has set His seal." They said therefore to Him, "What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?" Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent."

John 6:25-29

And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:7

RE: Post on the Crochetnmore Fan Page

Several months ago I saw a green crocheted necklace made to look like moss. I tried to purchase one but the sales person never answered. Do you have any patterns for a moss-looking necklace? Thank you Karla Stover


See what you think about the pattern on this page:

I had a question about one of the items needed for this project,

It asks for a 2" cabone ring.

I'm not sure if that is the same thing
as the plastic bone rings I found at Beverly's.

They are 2" and there was a smaller size too, 7/8 "

If I wasn't looking to put flowers in the middle but just wanted
a sturdy opening would the smaller size work ?

Would the plastic be too slippery to work with ?

Is the cabone ring made from from different materials ?
Do they sell it at Jo-Ann's or Michael's ?

I do love the texture and design of this project.

Thank you for your help,

Denise M. Ballard

    The 2” ring will work best in order to accommodate the stitches for R1.

Would the plastic be too slippery to work with ?

Is the cabone ring made from from different materials ?
     Yes... I have seen cabone rings made of wood.
     I do not recommend metal rings for this project due to the fact that it will be
     used in a bathroom where moisture could cause it to rust.

Do they sell it at Jo-Ann's or Michael's ?
     Yes... I bought mine at Wal-Mart

I do love the texture and design of this project.
     Thank you.



I LOVE the texture in this dishcloth. I am using it to make a baby blanket for the grandchild that is due in the spring. I started with a hundred and sixty (four repeats for the dishcloth) and ripped some out to make it not so wide.

Thank you for posting this pattern, I am really enjoying the ease and the product. :)

God Bless you

"Laughter is an instant vacation." - Milton Berle

The minister asked the little boy, " Do you know what's in the bible? "

"Yes," he responded, "I think I know everything that's in it."

Surprised, the minister said, "That's a pretty big claim for someone your size, go ahead and
tell me."

The boy started out, "Well... let's see... there's a picture of my Grandma and Grandpa,
a ticket from the dry cleaners, one of my baby curls, and a Pizza Hut coupon.

I was helping out with a tennis camp for little kids.
At the beginning, the tennis pro running the event was talking about a good sportsmanship.

He asked "Can anyone tell me what a good sport is?"

This cute little 5-year-old raised his hand, got called on, and said "baseball."


Little Susan was mother's helper. She helped set the table when company was due for dinner. Presently everything was on, the guest came in, and everyone sat down. Then Mother
noticed something was missing.

"Susan," she said, "you didn't put a knife and fork at Mr. Smith's place."

"I thought he wouldn't need them," explained Susan.
"Daddy says he always eats like a horse!"

My oldest sister had made a salad for dinner and served it on everyone's plate before we sat down. Coming to the table, Dad caught my four-year-old sister, Amy, poking his salad and told her to stop.

Amy was very quiet all through dinner. Finally, when the meal was over, Dad asked her, "Amy, why were you playing with my food?"

"I was trying to get the moth out," she replied.


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.


This young man was elated when he turned eighteen in a state where curfew is 11:00 p.m. for anyone under

seventeen years of age. He told his Dad how happy he was that now he could stay out until 3:00 a.m. if he wanted.

"Yes you can stay out as late as you want, but the car is under seventeen and it has to be in the garage by eleven." His father said.


In class, the teacher was trying desperately to get the students to think. He asked, “If the Pilgrims were alive today, what would they be most famous for?

One student quickly responded, “Their age.”

When we brought our new-born son to the pediatrician for his first checkup, the doctor said, "You have a cute baby."

Smiling, I said, "I'll bet you say that to all the new parents."

"No," he replied, "just to those whose babies are really good-looking."

"So what do you say to the others?" I asked.

"He looks just like you."

Nine-year-old Joey was asked by his mother what he had learned in Sunday School. "Well, Mom, our teacher told us how God sent Moses behind enemy lines on a rescue mission to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. When he got to the Red Sea, he had his army build a pontoon bridge and all the people walked across safely. Then he radioed headquarters for reinforcements. They sent bombers to blow up the bridge and all the Israelites were saved."

"Now, Joey, is that really what your teacher taught you?" his mother asked.

"Well, no, Mom. But, if I told it the way the teacher did, you'd never believe it!"


A man goes to the doctor and tells him that he hasn't been feeling well.

The doctor examines him, leaves the room and comes back with three different bottles of pills. The doctor says,"Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you
get up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water."

Startled to be put on so much medicine the man stammers,
"Jeez doc, exactly what's my problem?"

The Doctor says, "You're not drinking enough water."

A property manager of single-family residence was showing a unit to prospective tenants and asking the usual questions.

"Professionally employed?" he asked.

"We're a military family," the wife answered.


"Oh, yes, ages nine and twelve," she answered proudly.


"Oh, no," she said earnestly. "They're very well behaved."


At the school where my mother worked, the two

first-grade teachers were Miss Paine and Mrs. Hacking.

One morning the mother of a student called in the middle

of a flu epidemic to excuse her daughter from school.

"Is she in Paine or Hacking?" the school secretary asked.

"She feels fine," said the confused mom.

"We have company and I'm keeping her home."
