Welcome back everybody. Its week three, we’re halfway through the knit along and I’m sure you are all starting to see some progress. Some of you may be cruising along without a care but more likely you’ve ripped back so many times that if you have to do it again you’ll be ripping out some […]
A Great Giveaway Just In Time for Mother’s Day!
Some of my favorite garments to crochet are shawls, or wraps if you prefer to call them that, because of how easy they are to throw over your shoulders whenever there’s a slight chill … and that’s why I’m extremely excited to announce this great giveaway, courtesy of Stackpole Books and Tammy Hildebrand: Crochet Wraps: […]
How to Make a Repeating Stitch Into a Scarf or Afghan
This column by Barbara Breiter, author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Knitting & Crocheting, originally appeared in The Weekly Stitch newsletter. You have a throw pattern with a beautiful stitch pattern, but you’d like to make it wider or narrower. Or perhaps you’d like to make it into a scarf. Maybe the converse is […]
Knitted Toys: Bouncy Bunny Sock Critter
Writer and avid knitter Selma Moss-Ward joins us for a series of blog posts about becoming a first-time grandmother and knitting toys. Click here to read her previous blog posts. Maybe because I’m a serious sock knitter, I found this pattern irresistible. Sock construction from cuff to toe cleverly shapes Bouncy Bunny Sock Critter from his neck up. […]

For a new crocheter you are good. I have been crocheting most of my life and have never been able to write patterns well. Your patterns are beautiful and the person who sugested you write a pattern book on the dogwood eight point is absolutely right. As you progress with crochet you will get better and better, as good as you are now you'll be an expert soon.

Thanks! I have thought about writing a pattern book, but I am waiting to see how well I make money here on Gather. I can share the patterns for free and still get paid by Gather. I am hoping it will be enough.

Monica your patterns are beautiful I have a hard time because I crochet backwards( I am left handed and had to teach my self to crochet because my mom got to frustrated trying to teach me and the books that she had didn't have much on left handed. But I have overcome that and have the courage to try patterns as I said earlier thay no longer look like greek to me and I even have taught my mom a few things that she never knew! I am currently teaching my 5 year old daughter to crochet I was teaching my 9 year old son but he informed me that he was only learning because he was bored while he was grounded and since he isn't grounded he doesn't want to learn anymore (until next time he gets grounded and believe me he will) but that is OK my 13 year old daughter isn't exactly interested in it but my 13 year old step son who is only with us during the summer asked me to teach him I plan on starting tonight. I hope that by the end of the summer to give him a few of your patterns and a hook and a few skiens to take home with him and maybe by next summer he will have one done. I do hope that he keeps up on it.

I'm a lefty too. Ya know what they say "Leftys are always right." Right brained anyway. I learned by sitting right across from my mother and thats how I teach others who are rightys. And I also get a kick out of teaching my mom new pattern stitches and stuff. I bypassed her in skill by the time I was 11 when she taught me when I was 9.
