  1. I just found your blog via your youtube video demonstrating the afghan stitch. Just want to send a big "THANK YOU!" to you for taking the time to share what you have learned with others. I know that the computer can take up much personal time, but you have made a difference to me since I really lack anyone to mentor me in real life. I am the only current crocheter in my family (both sides) now that my grandmother and aunt have passed on. Now I have the chance to use that weird long crochet hook that I inheirited a decade ago! I never knew what it was for!

    Many thanks to you,

  2. Ladyfromthewoods,
    You are welcome.

  3. What weight yarn did you use? And about how much of it? I'm a beginner and I'm not very good at estimating =/

  4. Anonymous,
    You can do a scarf with 1 skein of yarn but I always recommend to purchase extra just on the chance that you find you want to make it wider or longer. It was made with 4-ply medium.

  5. Thanks! Over the past few days, I taught myself (through many internet videos/sites) single & double crochet. I've been itching to try an actual project, so I started practicing the seed stich. Your site and video have been very helpful! Thank you! I bought some nice yarn today and I'm going to make a scarf.

  6. I am making my little dog a sweater and wanted a nice, somewhat easy crochet pattern. I have a "paper pattern" that I check my work against. This looks like it would be easy enough to increase and decrease stitches. I really like the "scalloped" edge look also. Wish me luck!

  7. Teresa,
    I LOVE your tutorials and this blog. I stayed up until 3:30am last night trying to make the seed stitch. I don't have any problem with the basic stitch, and I really enjoy it. My problem is this: when I come to the end of the row, are we suppose to end with a SC or DC?
    I'm trying to make an 8 inch x 8 inch dishcloth. I tried to increase the length (using F hook)but it came out way too long. It looks beautiful except for the ends. I want to make the sides EVEN and don't know how to do that. I do like how your sides look but think for a dishcloth the straight side would be best.
    I'm self-taught and only know basic easy stitches so would LOVE your instruction, advice and input on how many stitches to start with using an F hook, Peaches & Cream cotton thread. I'm so excited about this that it's all I can think of!! Truly!!
    I am so grateful that I found you on You Tube and look forward to hearing from you. If possible, please email me at my personal email:
    Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
    Bobbie :)

    1. I did end with a double crochet on the ends, which created the rounded edge. You will need to work extra stitches on both sides to make a straight edge.

      I have not made it with a straight edge but this is my thinking on where I would start. Single crochet may be to short, double crochet may be to tall, so you may want to try a half double crochet. Work two extra chains at the beginning to compensate for the straight edge. Even if it does not look so great, you can always work an edging over the HDC to cover it up.
