Re: "LOST" crochet sweater pattern

I am looking for a crochet sweater pattern that appeared in a crochet magazine around the late '60's to possible late '70's. If you had ever seen it you would have remembered it for the intricate crochet cables and post stitches. The post stitches covered the lower portion of this sweater and the upper was done in the cable stitches. I at one time had the crochet Magazine that it came in, but for the life of me I can't find it. Any help that you all can give me in finding this pattern - I would greatly appreciate. I made this cardigan for our oldest years ago - It is beautiful!
-- Sherrill O'Brien (Perplexed!)



Can you tell me more about the pattern and magazine?
Do you remember the color(s) the sweater was in the photo... the name of the magazine, etc?

Do not be afraid when a man becomes rich, when the glory of his house is increased; for when he dies he will carry nothing away; his glory will not descend after him.

Psalm 49:16-17


The Lord is gracious and merciful; slow to anger and great in lovingkindness. The Lord is good to all, and His mercies are over all His works. All Thy works shall give thanks to Thee, O Lord, and Thy godly ones shall bless Thee. They shall speak of the glory of Thy kingdom, and talk of Thy power; to make known to the sons of men Thy mighty acts, and the glory of the majesty of Thy kingdom. Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Thy dominion endures throughout all generations. The Lord sustains all who fall, and raises up all who are bowed down. The eyes of all look to Thee, and Thou dost give them their food in due time. Thou dost open Thy hand, and dost satisfy the desire of every living thing. The Lord is righteous in all His ways, and kind in all His deeds. The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry and will save them. The Lord keeps all who love Him; but all the wicked, He will destroy. My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord; and all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.

Psalm 145:8-21



"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break and or steal; for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The lamp of the boyd is the eye; if therefore your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. For this reason I say to you, do not be anxious for your life, as to what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor for your body, as to what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single cubit to his life's span? And why are you anxious about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory did not clothe himself like one of these. But if God so arrays the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more do so for you, O men of little faith? Do not be anxious then, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'With what shall we clothe ourselves?' For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

Matthew 6:19-34



And someone in the crowd said to Him, "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family inheritance with me." But He said to him, "Man, who appointed Me a judge or arbiter over you?" And He said to them, "Beware, and be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions." And He told them a parable, saying, "The land of a certain rich man was very productive. And he began reasoning to himself, saying, 'What shall I do, since I have no place to store my crops?' "And he said, 'This is what I will do: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I will say to my soul, "Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry." But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?' "So is the man who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."

Luke 12:13-21


Let your character be free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, "I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU," so that we confidently say, "THE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID. WHAT SHALL MAN DO TO ME?"

Hebrews 13:5-6

Some patterns use more than one color of yarn. If a pattern instructs you to drop one color of yarn and "work over" it with a new color... lay the unused color yarn along the top of the stitches of the previous row/round and crochet over it as you go.

Re: ReadAPattern

Pattern reads: Make 4 ch. 1st row: Miss 3 ch, 2tr in last ch…3tr (count turning ch as 1tr throughout)
2nd row: 3 ch, 1tr in each tr to last st, 2tr in top of turning ch…5tr. Rep 2nd row 12 times


<< Reply >>

First of all, this pattern appears to be written in UK terms.
If you are not familiar with the difference between UK and American crochet terms you
might take a look at the information listed on this page:

Now, for your pattern.... do this:

Chain 4
For Row 1: Work 2 treble crochet in the fourth chain from the hook.
The first 3 chains of the beginning chain 4 will count as one treble crochet for a total of 3 treble crochets for Row 1.

For Row 2: Chain 3, work one treble crochet in each treble crochet across, working two treble crochet in the top of the turning chain (the very last stitch).
You should have 5 treble crochet when this row is finished.

Now repeat Row 2 for 12 times.

RE: I'm making a simple chemo cap with a Bernat pattern.. For the last row they say to work the single crochets to the left instead of to the right. What do they mean by that. They said nothing about turning the work???
Jerry Kreyling Lytle

<< Comments >>

Normally, crochet stitches are worked from right to left. A Reverse Single Crochet, also known as a Crab Stitch, is worked from left to right. This is still a single crochet stitch... only the placement is different.

Here's how: Insert your hook into the stitch or space indicated, then yarn over and pull up a loop. (You should have two loops on your hook.) Yarn over and draw through both of the loops on your hook. This stitch takes a bit of practice but the outcome is well worth the effort.
Here’s a video demonstrating the stitch:

How big is the finished bookmark?
Rhett Rogge

<< Reply >>

@Rhett Rogge: The finished bookmark is a normal bookmark size.
Somewhere around 1-1/2" x 6 would be an educated guess since I do not have the bookmark to measure.
The sample in the video was done in larger yarn to show the pattern better.

Re: How to Crochet - Basketweave Coaster Row 1



What size hook are you using?

<< Comment >>

The pattern calls for a size H crochet hook. 


Hi Lisa! You don't know me, but I have been enjoying your crochet site for several years, now. You have so many wonderful patterns to choose from!

That really isn't why I am writing you, though. After all the times that I have been all over your website, today was the first time that I had ever read your testimony.

I thoroughly enjoyed everything you wrote about, and I loved the photo of your daughter being baptized. How wonderful! My son Jacob, who is now 17, was saved and baptized five years ago. I love how there is just no words to even begin to explain how you feel seeing your child saved and baptized.

I won't keep you. I just wanted to say hello, and to thank you for posting your testimony. It was just what I needed to hear. :)

Welcome to Crochet N More Jane!

Crochet language consists of many abbreviations for stitches.
For instance CH is the abbreviation for a "chain stitch".
SC is the abbreviation for a "single crochet stitch".
HDC is the abbreviation for a “half double crochet stitch”.

The pattern language is shortened using symbols such as asterisks and parentheses.
When symbols are used, the designer will give further instructions later on in the pattern
for what will happen with a particular set of instructions.

You can find a list of crochet stitch abbreviations and instructions on our
Crochet Basics page:




I am a new crocheter and am attempting to crochet an afghan.
The instructions state:
Row 3: ch 3, 3 dc in ch-1 space of each V - st across, dc in top of beginning ch, turn.

I just completed a brief crochet class. Unfortunately reading patterns was not included in the class.
I'd appreciate your help with my project.

Thank you,


<< reply >>

For Row 3 you do this:
Chain 3
Work 3 double crochet stitches in the chain 1 space of each V-stitch across.
Double crochet in the top of the beginning chain at the end of the row.

Working into the chain 1 space means you place the 3 double crochet stitches into the hole beneath the chain of each V-stitch.






Kind words can be short and easy to speak,
but their echoes are truly endless.

Threads N Stitches



This book is a wonderful addition to any crochet library.
I've had numerous requests over the years of what to crochet for boys.
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
crochet stitches, assembly stitches and other embellishments used in the patterns.
The patterns are well written, some of the book is written in a small font but the pictures are wonderful. NOTE: 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.

At breakfast, the husband says to his wife, "What would you do if I won the Lotto?"

"I'd take half and leave you," she says.

"Great," he says.

"Here's $6. I won $12 yesterday!
Stay in touch".

The time came for our annual immunizations at our Air Force base overseas. To get us all vaccinated as quickly as possible, the base veterinary surgeon was pressed into duty to lend a helping hand. I received my injection from him, as a matter of fact.

"Wow," I said, when he was done. "You did that so gently, I hardly felt it."

"I have to be gentle," he replied. "My patients can bite."


We brought our newborn son, Adam to the pediatrician for his first checkup. As he finished, the doctor told us,
"You have a cute baby."

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

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

"So what do you say to the others?"

"He looks just like you."


One day, I taught my young class the story of Jesus visiting Mary and Martha. I carefully explained how Martha had hurried to clean the house and cook a special meal. Then I paused and asked, "What would you do if Jesus was going to visit your house today?"

One little girl quickly responded, "I'd put the Bible on the table!"


1. If walking/cycling is good for your health, the postman would be Immortal.

2. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water and is fat.

3. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years.

4. A tortoise doesn't run, does nothing ... yet lives for 450 years.



My 19-year-old granddaughter stood watching as her dad, grandfather and great-grandfather loaded tackle boxes, rods and bait to go on a fishing trip. As they got into the car, her grandfather asked with total confidence, "What kind of fish do you want us to bring home for supper?"

"Well, if you're filling orders, I'd like bass," my granddaughter replied. Then she grinned. "And, Grandpa, don't pay over two dollars and twenty-five cents a pound."


A minister was planning a wedding at the close of the Sunday morning service.

After the benediction he had planned to call the couple down to be married for a brief ceremony before the congregation.

For the life of him, he couldn't think of the names of those who were to be married.

"Will those wanting to get married please come to the front?" he requested.

Immediately, nine single ladies, three widows, four widowers, and six single men stepped to the front.


A Sunday School teacher was trying to explain about saying grace before meals. One of the pupils was the
young son of the minister of that church, so she started the discussion by asking him, "Jerry, what does your
father say when the family sits down to dinner?"

Jerry answered, "Dad says, 'Go easy on the butter, kids, it's three dollars a pound!'"


A six-year-old ran up and down the supermarket aisles shouting frantically, "Judy, Judy!"

Finally reunited with his mother, he was chided by her, "You shouldn't call me 'Judy.' I'm your mother, you know."

"I know," said the child, "but the store is full of mothers."

Years ago, when our daughters were very young, we'd drop them off at our church's children's chapel on Sundays
before the eleven o'clock service.

One Sunday, just as I was about to open the door to the small chapel, the minister came rushing up in full vestments.
He said he had an emergency and asked if I'd speak to the children at their story time. He said the subject was the Twenty-third Psalm.

But just as I was about to get up from the back row and talk about the good shepherd, the minister burst into the
room and signaled to me that he would be able to do the story time after all.

He told the children about sheep, that they weren't smart and needed lots of guidance, and that a shepherd's job was
to stay close to the sheep, protect them from wild animals and keep them from wandering off and doing dumb things
that would get them hurt or killed.

He pointed to the little children in the room and said that they were the sheep and needed lots of guidance.

Then the minister put his hands out to the side, palms up in a dramatic gesture, and with raised eyebrows said to the
children, "If you are the sheep then who is the shepherd?"

He was pretty obviously indicating himself.

A silence of a few seconds followed. Then a young visitor said, "Jesus, Jesus is the shepherd."

The minister, obviously caught by surprise, said to the boy, "Well, then, who am I?"

The little boy frowned thoughtfully and then said with a shrug, "I guess you must be a sheep dog."


One day a mother was explaining to her young son that you should never tell a lie. She told him that God saw everything
and heard everything.

She explained, "Even though your father and I may not know if you are telling a lie, God will know."

The young son replied, "But will He tell?"


In his younger days our golden retriever often ran away when he had the chance. His veterinarian's office was about a mile down the road and he would usually go there. The office staff knew him and would call me to come pick him up.

One day I called the vet to make an appointment for his yearly vaccine.

"Will you be bringing him in yourself," asked the receptionist, "or will he come on his own?"
