I am looking for a pattern I found and have misplaced. Im not sure of the name, but I think Someone had modified it and put it out there. It has 6 rows of crochet, then a row with holes in it. another row of crochet and then another with holes--then starts back over with 6 rows. All i can find left is use H hook chain 151 turn rows 1-7 sc 150 ch 1 turn, but I do not have the rest to show me how to do rows with holes. Anyone could help I would sure appreciate it Thanks

I am looking to make a 45x70 popcorn stitch afghan for my granddaughter but I cannot find a pattern. It will be in shades of lavender/purple. How many total skeins of yarn and what size hook??? If anyone can help me, I would really appreciated it. I am going to use 4 oz worsted weight yarn.... Thanks :) Replies can be sent to me at MarilynInMiamiFL@aol.com


I am finding it very tedious in your search box not being able to find even with exact name of project, your project. What's that about? I really enjoy your site and all of your yarn gang too. It takes too much time to find anything, though. jcm


My mother and I took turns crocheting a broomstick afghan 35 years ago. That afgan has been used by every member of my family and is currently on the bed in my spare bedroom an still looks great! It is one of my favorite possessions and carrys many memories, expecially of my mother who has been gone for several years now.

I wnted to write down the instructions for Crochet Dudes - Monet Afghan but cannot get back to the page. Site keeps asking for my sign in ID and I've typed it in several times, gone to my e-mails where it says welcome, you're signed in, but cannot get back to the Monet Afghan which was listed as a pdf file. I have no printer so cannot copy the instructions, but must write them down. Please help. This is the umpteenth time I've tried and I'm frustrated. roshwha@psln.com Missmack
