    I'm a little surprised that they would indicate that these patterns are for beginners. The first 2 afghan patterns that I opened were listed as Intermediate patterns. The next two were for a more advanced beginner.

    Hi I'm having trouble understanding part of a pattern for a hat.

Can you possibly help? Kathy

    Hi kmcm244, Which hat are you referring to? Have you left a comment on the pattern itself? You may find that others have run into the same problems and can offer advice. Thanks!

    How do you download these patterns for printing ? :(

    Hi gailericacooper--Thanks for your message. Unfortunately, at this time anyway, you cannot download all the patterns and print them at one time...but you can print the patterns you like by clicking on the link to the pattern and then clicking the Print button at the top of the project screen. Hope that helps!--FaveCrafts Editor

    good

    I am a total beginner and I now know how to finish a project but I am not clear on how you add join new yarn in the middle of a project. The way I am doing it looks very messy and also the two ends want to come out of the crochet stich that I am joining the two yarns at. In particular, I am having trouble when joining in a double crochet.

    Here's a link for a video on how to change colors in crochet, both at the end of a row, and in the middle of a row: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dr2ETOSMQUs&list=PL166DA68A2E700BDB&index=101&feature=plpp_video

    http://allcraftsbigsmall.weebly.com/craftin-for-pleasure.html I made the crochet mesh roll hat, I posted a pic on my blog if you'd like to see it. I really liked the pink camo!

    gmwill....I have made the twist scarf pattern 2 times and it is very fast and easy. "do not turn..." means do not turn the work back on itself for the second row. After you make the cluster at the end, continue to work around the chain. The next stitches are worked on the opposite side of the chain. Let me know if you need anything else.

    Easy Twist Scarf Crochet Pattern.... What does the pattern mean when it says, "Do not turn. Work in opposite side of foundation ch"??? I asked 2 crocheting friends, and they have no idea either. Can you please help??? Thank you.

    I am looking for a simple granny square sleppers or bootes
