New! Caron One Pound, Caron Simply Soft and Herrschners 2-Ply Afghan palettes - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

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

Welcome!  Smile

The graphs the freePatternWizard creates aren't meant for C2C afghans, so we can't guarantee the results.  C2C is in the plans, but no idea when.

Since you're using C2C instead of single crochet (a.k.a. double crochet if you're in the UK), you may notice your pattern is skewed, as single crochet stitches aren't actually square.  They're more rectangular, so the patterns created are keyed to be rectangular.  C2C is more square than rectangular, so it's possible your pattern will distort for that reason.

I've worked C2C patterns before, and the time to decrease is when you reach the 150 square mark; you'll have to check your pattern for which side that is.  Once you do, then you'll continue increasing the other edge until it reaches 235 squares, then that will be decreased until you ultimately end up at the opposite corner from where you started, with one square left.  Smile


You're so welcome!  Smile  It's always good to find a tutorial that not only teaches, but leads to the reader being able to design their own.  Kiss

Oh, yes, your sizing has to be perfect if you're not going to swatch, but if you don't swatch, then how can you get good sizing?  It's hit or miss, and the chancees of getting it perfectly right aren't very good.

Such sage advice...and yet some designers don't want to do that much!  I've downloaded a few patterns over the years that gave no gauge swatch.  It's fine for things like stuffed toys, where a gauge isn't critical, but it doesn't work well for garments.

You've definitely written an easy to understand tutorial and I hope people will give this one a try!  Kiss
