RE: pattern for scarf

I had seen a crocheted scarf (sort of triangular and not real long) it has "fringe all along the edge. However, the fringe was a chain of maybe 10-15, then worked back and across the row to the other side. It looked like it was all SC between the sides. (maybe worked in back and front loops only). I have searched for a pattern that would be like it with no luck. Anyone know what I am looking for? I would say the peak of the triangle would be no more than 10 or 12 inches deep, and the whole scarf was maybe 24 to 30 inches in length. Not sure of this, just want I have in my mind of what I saw, and that was a few months ago.

Just copies a lot of patterns off here that I can use for small Christmas gifts. Going to go to work on them starting tonight. Thank you to anyone that may have an answer for me, and a very blessed merry Christmas to all.



This pattern looks similar to your description:

RE:animal hats for dolls
Hi...I'm looking for a book that contains instructions to crochet/knit "animal" (owls) and other storybook characters (i.e, Hello Kitty.) These hats would be for 18" dolls (I don't knit or crochet so I have no idea if they could be sized-down.) If someone on here sells one or knows who might, or where I might find one, I would appreciate it very much! Thank you.

RE: Printed instructions

The instructions are not complete. If I find the instructions do not complete the pattern, how can I determine what to do to finish the project. I have followed the pattern but there are left over stitches, no indication of how many stitches I should have and I can't figure out what to do in order to correct the problem. Any suggestions?
Barbara S Healy (Confused)


If the pattern is online the first thing to do is email the designer. If the pattern is from a book/leaflet I will be happy to help you try to locate the designer.

“When I put my faith in Jesus Christ as my savior,
and I asked him to forgive and to come into my life,
and He does - from that moment forward
I have established a personal relationship with God
that I have to develop, you know,
through Bible reading and prayer,
and living my life for him."

"Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel"

Isaiah 7:14

And she will bear a Son; and you shall call His hame Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins. Now all this took place that what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet might be fulfilled, saying, Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which translated means, "God with us."

Matthew 1:21-23


Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee, called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the descendants of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And coming in, he said to her, "Hail, favored one! The Lord is with you." But she was greatly troubled at this statement, and kept pondering what kind of salutation this might be. And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb, and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever; and His kingdom will have no end."

Luke 1:26-33


"Now it came about in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth. This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all were proceeding to register form the census, everyone to his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, in order to register, along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. And it came about that while they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her first-born son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn."

Luke 2:1-7





Who was governor of Syria when the first Census was taken?

Instead of crocheting in the entire stitch which is both loops on the top of the stitch... you only catch or go through one of the loops when you do each stitch.
The back loop (bl) is the loop farthest from you.

I love the pattern but my finished product only measured 5" and didn't fit the lid.

What did I do wrong.

I do crochet tight could that have done it?


<< Reply >>

Achieving a different size only means your tension is different than mine.
My cover measured 6” in diameter. You can increase your hook size in order to
get a larger cover; OR, see if your cover fits the standard jar lid size.

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


<< Comments >>

Can you help me make an R plz

Erica Hamilton

<< Reply >>

Since this is a "freeform" style of crochet, everyone will make their letters differently. A fairly simple way to add the letter "R" would be to make a stencil. Pin the stencil in the position where you want the letter and crochet inside the stencil as I did on the video.

RE: Question

First of all, I have been a subscriber for quite a while and I love all the patterns and assistance you provide and most especially the Bible verses!!

I have a question that I've seen addressed on different sites, and perhaps even yours, but I don't remember the answer. If I buy a copyrighted pattern from you or anyone else, am I allowed to make that item and sell the finished product?

Thank you for everything you do!

God bless you and your family,

It’s always a good idea to ask permission from the designer of the pattern you want to make.


RE: Granny Towel Ring

Oh Lisa,
I can’t wait to work on it. As soon as I get it made I’ll send you a photo.



Re: ReadAPattern

Turn. sl st into each of the 1st two spaces. sl st into the space between the next two dc posts (you will be in the center of the 4dc cluster, with 2dc on either side). Ch2 and 3dc in same st. *1dc in space before the next cluster. 4dc in space between the 4 posts of next cluster. Repeat from *


<< Reply >>

I believe I have located the pattern from which your instructions came:

The instructions are a bit confusing.
Try this:

slip stitch into each of the first two "stitches"
slip stitch in between the posts of the two center stitches on that 4 stitch group
chain 2
work 3 double crochets in the same stitch
work 1 double crochet in the open space between the two 4dc groups
work 4 double crochets in the space between the two center stitches of the next 4dc group

Now repeat from *

Let me know how that works :)


Re: The Dog House

Here is my teacup chihuahua Tucker in the sweater I made from your pattern ! (He doesnt like it much lol, but I sure do !) It was so easy to do considering I am left handed and new at crochet! Thanks to youtube I have finally been able to learn a craft I have always wanted to do. Thanks to you for such an easy to understand pattern! Happy Crocheting!

The Incident - True story about how God works

This is about my Father In Law, James Hamblin.
We asked for and received prayer from many of our crochet family after his accident and during his recovery process. For those who do not know, James fell in October causing multiple injuries which took months to overcome. He is home now and doing well.

This is his story!

I love playing Santa at the mall. But parents often have trouble getting young children to sit on my knee.

It took a lot of coaxing for one little girl to perch there, so I got straight to the point. "What do you
want most of all for Christmas?" I asked.

She answered, "Down!"


"Can you tell me who made you?" the pastor asked the small

The youngster thought a moment. Then he looked up at the
pastor and said, "God made part of me."

"What do you mean, part of you?" asked the pastor.

"Well," answered the boy, "God made me little. I grew the
rest myself."


A friend of mine recently went on a trip and had to stop at
a rest area on the Interstate. She took her keys, left her
purse and cell phone in her car, and went to the restroom.

When she returned, her remote wouldn't unlock the door and
she panicked. "What am I going to do? My cell phone is still
in the car and I can't call Onstar!"

Another traveler nearby overhearing this asked, "Have you
tried the key?"

Walking through the hallways at the middle school where
I work, I saw a new substitute teacher standing outside
his classroom with his forehead against a locker.
I heard him mutter, "How did you get yourself into this?"
Knowing that he was assigned to a difficult class, I
tried to offer moral support.
"Are you okay?" I asked. "Can I help?"
He lifted his head and replied, "I'll be fine as soon as
I get this kid out of his locker."


Today, in the cutest voice, my 8-year-old daughter asked me to
start recycling.

I chuckled and asked, "Why?"

She replied, "So you can help me save the planet."

I chuckled again and asked, "And why do you want to save the planet?"

"Because that's where I keep all my stuff," she said.


I remember my dad was shopping in a toy store. He said, "That's
a terrific train set. I'll buy it."

The Clerk said, "Great, I'm sure your son will love it."

Dad said, "Maybe you're right. I'll take two."


A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like.

"We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods."

The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in.

At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!"


Two children ordered their mother to stay in bed one
Mother's Day morning. As she lay there looking forward
to breakfast in bed, the smell of bacon floated up from
the kitchen.

But after a good long wait she finally went downstairs
to investigate. She found them both sitting at the table
eating bacon and eggs.

"It's a surprise for Mother's Day," one explained, "we
decided to cook our own breakfast."


One Saturday in late winter, my six-year-old twin boys
decided that they wanted to make some money and asked
if they could go and shovel our neighbour's driveway.

My neighbour called me later to say that my cleaning
crew had done an amazing job clearing her driveway.
She paid them each a dollar to be spent at the dollar
store but they told her that it wasn't enough money.
They each needed another 14 cents for tax!


One stormy spring morning an obviously anxious mother
called the school office to ask if her son's bus had
gotten there safely.
She was asked, "What is your son's name and what grade
is he in?"
A giggle followed a pause. "Oh, my son's not a student.
He's the bus driver."



The loaded mini-van pulled into a campsite. Four children leaped from the vehicle and began feverishly unloading gear and setting up the tent. The boys rushed to gather firewood, while the girls and their mother set up the camp stove and cooking utensils.

A nearby camper marveled to the youngsters' father, "That, sir, is some display of teamwork."

The father replied, "I have a system: no one goes to the bathroom until the camp is set up."


At the beginning of the school year, I asked my Grade 2
students to write about something exciting they did that
summer, then to draw a picture to illustrate it.

One student proudly presented his account of a ride on
a roller coaster, but he had not drawn a picture.

When I asked why he hadn't done this, he declared, "I
couldn't: I didn't see anything because my eyes were
