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!)




I have a lot of magazines from the 70's and some from the sixties. The work basket magazines are smaller, digest size, crochet fantasy magazines are larger, do you remember the size or something of the magazine? I'll be happy to look through what I have.:)









“Love and compassion are the mother and father of a smile.
We need to create more smiles in our world today.
Smiles, after all, pave the way to a happy world.”
~~ Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free ~~


“We do not need guns and bombs to bring peace, we need love and compassion.”
~~ Mother Teresa, The Joy in Loving: A Guide to Daily Living ~~


“No one has ever become poor by giving."
~~ Anne Frank, diary of Anne Frank ~~

For their heart was not steadfast toward Him, nor were they faithful in His covenant. But He, being compassionate, forgave their iniquity, and did not destroy them; and often He restrained His anger, and did not arouse all His wrath.

Psalm 78:37-38

The Lord's lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23

And it happened that as He was reclining at the table in the house, behold many tax-gatherers and sinners came and were dining with Jesus and His disciples. And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to His disciples, "Why is your Teacher eating with the tax-gatherers and sinners?" But when He heard this, He said, "It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means, I DESIRE COMPASSION, AND NOT SACRIFICE, for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.

Matthew 9:10-13


And as they were going out from Jericho, a great multitude followed Him. And behold, two blind men sitting by the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by, cried out, saying, "Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!" And the multitude sternly told them to be quiet; but they cried out all the more, saying, "Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!" And Jesus stopped and called them, and said, "What do you want Me to do for you?" They said to Him, "Lord we want our eyes to be opened." And moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes; and immediately they regained their sight and followed Him.

Matthew 20:29-34



For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me. Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, "Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You drink? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? And when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?" And the King will answer and say to them, "Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.

Matthew 25:35-40

And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" And He said to him, "What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?" And he answered and said, "YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND; AND YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF." And He said to him, "You have answered correctly; DO THIS, AND YOU WILL LIVE." But wishing to justify himself, he said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" Jesus replied and said, "A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho; and he fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went off leaving him half dead. And by chance a certain priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion, and came to him, and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, "Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I return, I will repay you." Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers' hands?" And he said "The one who showed mercy toward him" And Jesus said to him, "Go and do the same."

Luke 10:25-37

And so, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. And beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do in word of deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.

Colossians 3:12-17

Take a look:



When a skein of yarn is partially used it tends to get a little unruly.
Take a few minutes and wind it into a ball. Tuck in the end so it doesn't unwind and
store it in a bag or container designated for partially used skeins. When you need a small amount of yarn, look there first!

RE: Turkey Table Topper

<< Comments >>

This is cute, but some will have a problem with the eyes could be a chocking hazard and if you wash it the will fall off. Just saying I would crochet mine also. Very cute tho.

Kathy Rumohr Crews Landman


Thank you! This pattern is intended for decoration only.
I have added that this pattern is "NOT FOR CHILDREN".
Not only are the eyes not child friendly but the turkey is stuffed with plastic bags.

How to Crochet: Writing on Single Crochet Fabric with Slip Stitches


<< Comments >>

Good video, but I'm not sure why you wouldn't show how to finish it, i.e. Show us how to handle the ends. . .


<< reply >>

Ends are weaved in as with any crochet project... working/sewing the yarn ends back into the same color stitches.
You can weave in the ends using your crochet hook or a yarn needle.



Thank you for uploading this video, it's a much more easy (and forgiving) solution to adding letters than trying to work them into the base. My question is, what do you do with the strings at the end of the letter lines?

Echo von Echo

<< reply >>

Work or sew the yarn ends back into the same color stitches. I weave them throughout the letters using a yarn needle.

Re: ReadAPattern

Pattern says skip next st , sc in next st) 3 times. What does that mean? Thanks

<< Reply >>

When a set of instructions is in parentheses there will be instructions
directly after the parentheses telling you what to do with those instructions.

For your instructions do this:

skip the next stitch
single crochet in the next stitch (that’s one time)

skip the next stitch
single crochet in the next stitch (that’s two times)

skip the next stitch
single crochet in the next stitch (that’s three times)


Re: ReadAPattern

*SC 5 in CH 2 space, SLST in SC* repeat from *to* til end of row.
Kaitlyn Ridens

<< Reply >>

These instructions are written a bit differently that I am accustomed to but I believe the
designer wants you to do this:

work 5 single crochets in the next chain 2 space (into the hole beneath the 2 chains)
slip stitch in the next single crochet

now repeat the instructions between the asterisks to the end of the row.


Re: Crochet help

Please tell me how to do the following:

Sl in first sc made. Sl st in dc. Sc in the 3 ch space. Ch5 (Sc in space between the next dc and 3 chs, ch5).

Thank you very much

Nicolette van Eeden

<< Reply >>

>>>Sl in first sc made. Sl st in dc. Sc in the 3 ch space. Ch5

That means you do this:
slip stitch in the first single crochet made.
Slip stitch in the next double crochet.
Single crochet in the chain 3 space (work the single crochet into the hole beneath the 3 chains).
Chain 5

>>>(Sc in space between the next dc and 3 chs, ch5).

Now for the part that totally confused me Smile
Normally, a set of instructions contained within parentheses has another reference just after the closing parentheses telling you what to do with those instructions.

I finally came to the conclusion that the instruction in parentheses in this instance is at the end of a row.
Therefore, you should have two double crochet stitches left (one of which is the beginning chain 3).
Work the single crochet in between the two double crochet stitches instead of into either of them.
Now chain 5.

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.

A teenager who had just received her learner's permit offered to drive her parents to church. After a hair-raising ride, they finally reached their destination.

When the mother got out of the car she said emphatically, "Thank you!"

"Anytime," her daughter replied with a smile.

As her mother headed for the church door, she said, "I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to God."


While we were working at a men's clothing store, a customer
asked my coworker to help her pick out a tie that would make
her husband's blue eyes stand out.

"Ma'am," he explained, "any tie will make blue eyes stand
out if you tie it tight enough."


There’s a story about a little girl who, on the way home from church, turned to her mother and said, "Mommy, the Preacher's sermon this morning confused me."

The mother said, "Oh! Why is that?"

The girl replied, "Well, he said that God is bigger than we are. Is that true?"

"Yes, that's true," the mother replied.

"He also said that God lives within us. Is that true, too?"

Again the mother replied, "Yes."

"Well," said the girl. "If God is bigger than us and He lives in us, wouldn't He show through?"


In which battle did Napoleon die?







His last battle


A 72 year old man had one hobby - he loved to fish.

He was sitting in his boat the other day when he heard
a voice say, 'Pick me up.' he looked around and couldn't
see anyone.

He thought he was dreaming when he heard the voice say
Again, ''Pick me up. '

He looked in the water and there, floating on the top,
was a frog.

The man said, 'Are you talking to me?'

The frog said, 'Yes, I'm talking to you. Pick me up,
then kiss me; and I'll turn into the most beautiful
woman you have ever seen. I'll make sure that all
your friends are envious and jealous, because I will
be your bride!'

The man looked at the frog for a short time, reached
over, picked it up carefully and placed it in his
shirt pocket.

The frog said, 'What, are you nuts? Didn't you hear
what I said?' I said, 'Kiss me, and I will be your
beautiful bride.'

He opened his pocket, looked at the frog and said,
'Nah. At my age, I'd rather have a talking frog.'

With age - comes wisdom.


Giving a sermon one Sunday, I heard two teenage girls 
in the back giggling and disturbing people. I interrupted 
my sermon and announced sternly, "There are two of you 
here who have not heard a word I've said." That quieted 
them down. 

When the service was over, I went to greet people at the 
front door. Three adults apologized for going to sleep 
in church, promising it would never happen again.

this bothered her until the clothes dryer refused to work,
the iron shorted, and the sewing machine motor burned out in
the middle of a seam. The final straw came when she plugged
in the vacuum cleaner and nothing happened.

She looked so stricken that I had to offer some consolation.

"That's okay, honey," I said. "You still have me."

She looked up at me with tears in her eyes. "Yes," she
wailed, "but you don't work either!"
