Hi, I'm Trish from Maryland! I have a question about graphing crochet: I'm assuming that the patterns for regular crochet are based on the single crochet stitch as the unit. Is that correct? Please advise.

Thank you!


It sounds to me that even though you may not be able to find the exact design, you have enough to go on to make a very similar, if not identical, version!  Kiss

And the round blue doily is also a gorgeous pattern to use for a rug!  Kiss

There's also nothing that says you can't combine different parts of different long as the math works.  Smile  Sort of the way you do with cross stitch, but with crochet!  Smile

LOL!  I honestly wouldn't feel confident sending rubles to Russia for a number of reasons, but particularly with the issue of not knowing the language and thus, knowing nothing about the site.  Frown  Can you imagine the headache of getting the wrong item and trying to get an exchange?  Or not receiving anything at all?  Surprised  Shudder.

Hi there

Is there some changes going on at the stitchboard pattern wizard?

I have tried for a couple of days, different times, even different weather and I cannot get the pattern to generate.

Is it my service? (Everything else seems to work) or my computer setting maybe? (I've not changed anything since the last time I used the wizard) I tried using my picture as a jpg and a png, no luck either way.

Hope it's up and running soon! I need to get my picture fix Smiley I'm need to get onto my next project.

I really enjoy the wizard, it's helped me make some awesome artwork. (see my circle . . . peyote stitch)

Thanks for the help


I posted one FREE knitting book for Kindle for today...grab it before it's gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)

Here's the circle (you must join to see posts):

First of all love this patternmaker!!! New to beading and in for the long haul.. Friend nagged me for years to daubble in jewelry making but I would yawn at her lol.  But i got a bug a few months ago and can't put it down.  This wiz is a god send.  Thanks!
1) but riddle me this.  when i am doing a square bead stitch how do i read the pattern?  length or height? I flip my square stitch after each row so how do i need to read my pattern.  if i start at top as row one and work down i flip my work and do what next? work from the top again?   If you dont understand my SQ ask me to 'slpain again  but really confused on pattern reading/following
2) I want to make a beaded cuff bracelet Of the Seattle Seahawks logo (GO HAWKS) and don't need it  45 beads tall or 80 wide.  how to make smaller if possible?

thanks Mary
