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

Candi,

So far, so good in testing.  Standard and tunisian crochet word charts seem to be corrected and we're doing a bit more testing.  I also did find a related problem with illusion knitting word charts and have corrected this too.

We're doing some final testing today and will post again when we're done.

Terry

yeah it was a lot of fun 

Melanie,

Welcome...great name!  Laughing

My suggestion is to try something smaller than a large item like a blanket for your first project.  If you're still new to crochet and new to graphing as well, it may turn out to be a very daunting task to complete in only 7 weeks, particularly something with a lot of detail such as a graphed design.

A crochet graph is read bottom to top, right to left for the first row and all odd numbered rows, left to right for the second and all even numbered rows.

I've been crocheting and knitting for over 40 years and when I attempt something new, I do exactly the same thing as I'm suggesting here...I start small (because if I don't, I'm usually sorry, LOL).  When I wanted to learn bead crochet a few years ago, after a laughable attempt with seed beads and thread, I started fresh with yarn and pony beads, instead of the small seed beads.  The idea of making something as large as a beaded bracelet was unthinkable until I'd mastered enough bead crochet to feel comfortable!

Neave,

Woo hoo, then I want to teach you!  Kiss  It's easier for me to teach right-handed people.  I once tried to learn left-handed crochet to teach it to other lefties and couldn't do it.  But it's a breeze for me to teach right-handed people.  Kiss

Welcome!  Smile

Love Tennessee...such a beautiful place!

How neat that you learned to crochet so young.  Smile  And isn't it wonderful that your youngest daughter is already "hooked" on crochet?!  It's great to start out learning to crochet when young.  What better way is there to become a lifelong crocheter?  Smile

Feel free to share pictures of your work in our photo albums, so we can all drool!  Smile
