Sorry I didn't get around to it earlier, but I wanted to tell you that the video about using the "faux" double crochet stitch instead of chaining three at the start of a new row was absolutely fantastic. That's my "ladder up" of choice now. I appreciate your steering me that way!
Hi Julie, I love your fruity hats - pretty colours and I noticed that they have a 'rib' effect border. I have been trying to work out how to achieve this in crochet and I was hoping that you could tell me what the stitch is called so that I can look it up. I've just used back-post sc for a KASCuddle and I liked the effect on one side of that but it's going in the wrong direction for hats unless I make a rectangle and gather the top? Is there another way? As I am typing this I can see photos of the beautiful things that you have made and there seem to be lots of lovely hats. I have made some crochet progress but I still have a long way to go.
I was looking into that 200 Crochet Squares book, but the reviews on Amazon.com said there were A LOT of errors in the patterns; have you found that to be a problem? I'm enjoying watching your squares go by =); I REALLY like those star squares! What a beautiful pattern/color combination!
Hi Julie, Sorry not to reply to your query sooner than this. I was away for several days and since I got home I have not done much on the computer. Today is the first time I have had time on my own so I thought I'd pop in and see what has been going on in KAS world. I can't seem to find the book which had the pattern in it but I will look tonight, and get back to you a.s.a.p. There's a war going on in this house books and yarn fight for space - who know which will win out in the end?! And I always know exactly where anything is - that is until I want to put my hands on it. lv - Jen
