New!  The Herrschner's Worsted Palette - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

New!  We've just added the palette for Deborah Norville Everyday Yarn!  If you knit and/or crochet, this is for you.  This is a beautiful yarn with a nice feel to it, a good alternative in worsted weight acrylic!  (Thank you again to BetwixtTheStitch!)

New!  The Red Heart Super Saver Palette - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

Welcome to Stitchboard!  Feel free to sit and stay awhile.  Check out our new Premier features.  In addition to the ability to create larger patterns (up to 500 stitches wide), illusion knitting and private labeling (no more worries about editing those pesky and messy PDFs), we've just introduced Filet Crochet, our most popular request!  We have many more features planned, too!  Laughing

Thanks for the input!

I'm working on what I'm hoping will be a nice solution.  It looks like I'll be able to make it do a download like before — with a single click.

I hope to have a solution on Saturday (actually later today) although it might take a couple days to implement the entire update since there are a couple areas of our site that do downloading.  I do know we'll get it working.

Early versions of the Android browser that comes standard on devices as well as some versions of Chrome have problems with certain downloads from a secure site.  I'll look into Mozilla after I bring up the fix for Android/Chrome and will post again with progress later today/this evening.



Hope you've been able to successfully crop your image!  Smile

Although I don't personally use them, the programs I mentioned are very impressive with all of the options they offer...I really should try them, too, but am very comfortable using that ancient program, sigh.  Anyway, best of all, you can't beat the price for either one!  Wink

Feel free to take advantage of our introductory prices...we want to keep them low so they're affordable; we love the idea that they can help you do what you're trying to accomplish!  Smile

Stitchboard Admin, the pattern is for free on just search for Northern Lights shawl and you'll see it there. I'm sorry that I couldnn't provide a link, still problems with the computer.

StitchMeKnot, yes this is the pattern, and I have since then found written out instructions by some one else, but I thank you for your help.

I'm glad you found the written instructions ... I got another migraine and was not able to finish this.  If there is some interest, I could explain the process I went through to get the first five rows. 


Noooo...2 exams for one class?!  Surprised  Isn't one exam enough?!

I'm so glad you're more comfortable with oral exams and glad they give them!  Kiss  There's nothing like that here.  Just the usual written exams.  Nobody here would know any better, though, since probably not many people here have ever taken an oral exam!

Do you have both an oral and written exam for math?

I agree with you.  Kiss  That's really the way it should be, free education, just buy your books and materials, but there are people who would rather limit educations to those with money.  Cry  It's a lot like the problem with our health care...there are those who have always had plenty, oftentimes money inherited from a parent or parents, who believe that others who can't afford such things as education or health care simply don't deserve it.  Cry  That's why I think the way you guys do it is so sensible.  Everyone pays into the system, and everyone gets what they need.  Kiss

Sigh, it really is a stupid bead project!  It was so aggravating for that last bead to split...twice!  Yell

Hugs!  Kiss


Welcome!  Smile

If you're asking specifically about a crochet word pattern, the word patterns are written so that you'll follow the first row on the bottom from right to left, then you'll turn your work for the next row and use the same procedure of following the pattern as written (not backwards), working on the opposite side as you normally do, even though that way you're working in reverse.

For instance, let's say you have a few rows of stripes of purple and yellow.  The first row would be kind of like this: purple (50), yellow (50).  The next row would pick up where you left off, so you'd turn and then do yellow (50), purple (50).  That's because the patterns are written in the correct working order, so you don't have to reverse the pattern.  The only time you'll have to reverse certain rows in patterns is if you're working from a graph, as a graph should look a lot like your finished item.
