I have a question about the pattern maker. When you choose the color scheme, it has basic palette, full palettes, then red heart super saver etc. What exactly does that mean? How do you know what colors they are, couldn't it just say red, white brown, etc? There's some I don't even know like the DMC or something like that

Ava,

The Basic Palette is the one I suspect you'll want. Unless you're looking for a certain brand, such as Red Heart Super Saver, the Basic Palette is what you'll find has all of the very basic colors. Brands of yarn will have their own color names. This is why we developed the Basic Palette, because yarn is very difficult to match to specific colors, and even going across brands, which usually isn't recommended due to differences in yarn weights and differences in fibers (e.g., you wouldn't want to use fibers that require different types of care in one project!), you'll be hard pressed to find matching colors beyond the basics.

The Full Palette isn't recommended at all.

DMC is embroidery floss. While there are some who use embroidery floss to crochet, it's a very small fiber and difficult to work with, so though DMC has many color matches compared to conventional yarns, it's not recommended for crochet.
