I have a little problem with your pattern. I'm Dutch and understand almost every abraviation(?), but I don't know what 2trb means. You use it for the flower which I like very much. Can you help me?

IT MEANS 2 TREBLE CROCHET STITCHES. HOPE THIS HELPS.

what size hook is used for this pattern ?

laughing purple goldfish said...

I used a 3.0mm hook... because I wanted the stitches to be quite tight... but anything up to a 5.0mm hook would work well

I am new to crocheting..i usually just make beanies. Can someone explain round 1 to me a little better? I am a little confused on how you end up with 40 stitches for the next round. My email is txfam4@yahoo.com. Thanks

Murai said...

I have the same question that Romberg Family has. Sort of a newbie and I am puzzled by this 20 to 40 stitch in the back stuff in row 1. My project is flat, not round :-( Is that right? Much thanks :-)

no worries :)

you begin by working a row of sc along your foundation chain (which gives you 20sc)
THEN
you work into the other loop of each of those same chain stitches (which gives you another 20sc)

you have now worked a complete round of 40sc... hope that helps :)

I'm having trouble understanding the pattern. I just got to the 40 scs, after that I get lost. I get confused where it says to join with slip st to beg ch. My work is flat, is it supposed to be like that?

such a cute little bag, thanks for the pattern

I love this cute little bag and would love to download the pattern, but Adobe keeps telling me that the file is damaged and it can't be downloaded.

Is it really damaged, or is my computer being temperamental? I've tried to download the pattern about a dozen times, each time in vain, unfortunately!Your help would be greatly appreciated, as are your designs and tutorials.

Thanks! Diane in UK

Im so happy to have stumbled onto your blog! I'm just beginning a new line of crocheted items made of 100% recycled yarn. Could I possibly post finished projects here for critiques and feedback?

Thanks,

if it's easier, you could email me directly at laughingpurple@myacn.net.au

Still dont get the 20sc 40sc thing. Am I just gonna have 2 rows of 20 sc on either side of the chain?

laughing purple goldfish said...

Yes. Your starting chain will have sc worked on both sides, forming a round.

Good day! This post couldn't be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

Penelitian yang dilakukan oleh yayasan kesehatan BMJ Open, menemukan hasil bahwa SOL (sleep onset latency) atau lama waktu untuk merasa mengantuk dan tertidur bisa terpengaruh dan terganggu dengan adanya perangkat elektronik, yang terutama terdapat layar pemancar cahaya. Gelombang cahaya panjang-pendek (short-wavelength) yang dihasilkan layar gadget mengakibatkan terhambatnya produksi hormon melatonin sebagai penghasil rasa kantuk. Hal itu mengakibatkan ritme ‘sirkadian’ tubuh menjadi terganggu, hingga akhirnya membuat seseorang semakin sulit untuk www.caraagarcepattidur.com.
