  3. I saw your tutorial on youtube and found it so helpful. I would like to make the circle bigger. You said that the third row should be 2DC, 2DC, 1DC and repeat all the way around. Is this correct? What would I do for the fourth round? Is there a formula you use?

    Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge.

  4. Vivienne, There is not a specific formula for circles. The technique for making circles is to understand increases which is creating 2 stitches in one stitch. There are many combination of stitches to making a circle larger. Your yarn size and hook size will play a role in making a circle larger. Your unique tension will play a role. The combination of stitches that work for one project, may not work for another project.

  5. Hi Teresa,
    I have been watching your youtube videos for a while now and I find them very helpful. I would like to make some socks and I found what looks like a good pattern. If you are able to, I was wondering if you could demonstrate making these socks. I understand most of it but being the particular person that I am, I want to make sure that I would do this the right way. Thank you! And I understand if you're too busy for this. The link to the pattern is: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/cwe-joansSocks.html

  7. Syksma,
    The tutorial is for two rounds. It will be necessary to evenly increase if you want the circle to lay flat. Increasing is where you put 2 stitches in the same stitch.

  8. Teresa, Have you heard of a crochet stitch called the wimpet?

  9. kateej,
    Someone else asked me that same question a couple days ago. I have never heard of a wimpet stitch.

  10. My grandsons (ages 8 & 10) are wanting me to teach them to crochet. They will be spending a week or more with me this summer. I could use some ideas and patterns for them. Marble bags, bag for small toys, a cap, etc.? Something for Mom? Your videos are so helpful, and professionally made. Thank you for your help. Geneva in Oklahoma, USA
