Mixed flower bouquet patterns?

I looked on ravelry but I'm at a loss. I know I could combine multiple patterns of flowers into one but I'm hopeless when it comes to finding the right combo!

I want to make this for my mum's birthday, so any help is appreciated!

infinite stitch recommendation

The total pretty much says it all but basically i’ve been hoarding all my scraps, ends and leftover lengths and joining them with the magic knot to make a sort of dreadful and chaotic ball of yarn but honestly this thing is starting to just get in my way so im looking for recommendations for an endless stitch to start making it into a blanket

I’m currently making like 3 different things in the granny stitch and while i’m not completely opposed to using that again here, i was wondering if there’s anything else that works the same sort of way

thank you!!!

My mom recently got a crochet/knitting subscription box. How do I tell if she’s struggling because she’s a beginner or if the box is using ai in its instructions/patrerns?

Basically what the title says. I know there’s been a problem with AI generating images of impossible projects and patterns so I’m kinda worried it might have invaded subscription boxes. She mainly does crochet and is still a beginner and I’ve only just started knitting so I’m not sure how to help if it is an AI issue

What clothes do you use Acrylic vs Cotton for?

I've crocheted plushies for a few years and just recently started really wanting to crochet clothing! There are so many tops that I think are sooo cute. But every time I've made a wearable, (granny stitch sweater, basic bra-style top, sweater), they're so stiff and don't mold or drape around my body well. Specifically the bra style top, the cups dont sit around my chest well at all. The cups are the perfect size but they sit so stiff like they aren't going *around* my body.

I've only used Acrylic yarn for these pieces, is that the problem? I know acrylic yarn is stiff and doesn't drape as well as cotton, but is it really unusable? Does it get better after wet-blocking?

I made a mesh shrug with acrylic and that turned out completely fine, I'm guessing because the mesh stitch makes it a lot more flimsy.

Yarn for bucket hat?

Has anyone tried Everyday Cotton Yarn by Loops & Threads? It's 100% cotton which I thought might be great for the summer but some reviews says it's very similar to Lily n' Cream and I'm worried it might be difficult to work with. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Holes from Decrease

The amigurimi pattern I’m going has a two full rows of decreases in a row, and I know (or I’m pretty sure) that decreasing too fast can cause the holes between stitches to be much larger. I have been using the yarn under and invisible decrease technique, but I wanted to ask if there was something else I could do to help reduce the holes?

Granny square based cross body bag lining?

I am making a cross body bag made of granny squares and I want it to be functional (meaning I don't want things slipping out the holes). I am thinking of lining it with a simple cotton. I have fabric, know the basics of sewing, but I've never tried combining sewing and crochet. How would I go about doing that?

How big would 150 sc by 100 sc turn out using weight 4 to 5 ish yarn?

I am trying to make a crochet tapestry using chenille yarn, and the image is about 150 pixels to 100 pixels ish. I'm thinking 1 pixel = 1 sc and I'm probably going to use a size 6 hook. Any rough estimates on how big the tapestry will turn out? Any help appreciated 💐

I can’t get it

I’ve tried this multiple ways but can’t get to 48. What am I doing wrong? I’m doing the first dc by going into the 4th from hook, then doing 2 more dc to make the first 3 dc. Then I decrease db two times(turning 4 into 2) then 3dc, then dc inc twice(turning 2 into 4). Then after doing this three times(doing a regular 3dc at the beginning on the second and third time), I do 3dc, then decrease dc twice, 3dc, and then one dc inc. I always end up with 2 stitches left

Need color suggestions for a border on a baby blanket, please ☺️

I'm making this baby blanket for the granddaughter of my MIL's friend.

https://onelittlehook.com/modern-heirloom-crochet-baby-blanket/#google_vignette

I'm using Feels Like Butta by Lion Brand in yellow. I can't add pictures using my phone so I'll link the item on Amazon.

Lion Brand Yarn Feels Like Butta Soft Yarn for Crocheting and Knitting, Velvety, 1-Pack, Yellow https://a.co/d/aTrJ7aC

I want to add a border, but not like the one in the written pattern. Problem is, I don't know what color to use 😕 I used this yellow yarn because I happened to have a bunch left over from a project and while I love the yellow, I can't decide which color will look best incorporated into the border. Maybe a few rows of the accent color and then finish with the yellow again.

The link to the yarn shows the other color options. I was thinking light grey, but I really can't decide! I'm starting to regret using this yellow, tbh.

I'd be so grateful for some suggestions 🙏🏼xx

I don't get it

I do the round ending with slip stitch and chain one. Why is there this gap?? I'm doing something wrong for sure

How do I make this less lumpy?

I just started crocheting 2 months ago so excuse me for not having the terminology down yet. Im making this for a friends baby and I'm having a hard time getting it to look clean. I'm assuming it's a problem with the way I joined the squares but I'm not sure.

Trouble with a Mesh Shirt

Hi!

My current WIP is a mesh shirt for my friend's birthday, which is on the 22nd of June. I'm following this tutorial I found on youtube; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-AqZSDi6w7k&t=541s&ab_channel=KenikseCrochet . I'm using Looks & Threads in the color Leaf Green and a 5.25 mm hook.

The foundation chain seems to be too tight imo, and there is some rippling in the subsequent rows. I'm not sure if this is the nature of this kind of pattern or if the foundation chain is just simply too tight. I've thought about pulling the whole project out and restarting using a foundation single crochet. I've read that it helps when you have an issue with tight tension, but I've never used it and don't really know. I could also just try a larger hook size at the beginning to account for this issue.

Am I being too harsh and picky on this piece? Should I just keep going and blocking will solve these issues later? Or should I frog it and either try a larger hook or a foundation single crochet?

Any and all advice is welcome! I'm running out of time to make this piece, so I really need to make a decision on whether to frog. Thanks y'all!

Stiff cardigan

I made my first clothing item, quarter sleeve cardigan. I love it and so excited about it but I'm wondering if it will always feel stiff or is it going to get softer and more comfortable after it's been worn a bit? I used Lily sugar n cream 100% cotton yarn. Is this just how crochet clothing feels?

Can someone help me

Hi everyone (FYI: English is my third language)

I am new to crochet. I started a bag using macrame cord (polypropylene). It was all good but some stitches are a little bit loose than the others. I tried to fix it with steaming and ironing but the bag is not as stiff as I want it. The bumps are very small and barely noticeable. My husband told me that's the bag is pretty nice l, but I still think I can perfect it. I can't find the stiffen spray in my country, so I was wondering if a homemade liquid starch can work without leaving stains (the thread is black)

What does Ribblr want?

I am a long time knitter/crocheter and I am wondering if a pattern this small would be worth selling on ribblr. It is a lighter cozy which is a bit obscure and might not have much interest in the community but I'm open for feedback on anything related to selling patterns on (or off) ribblr. How do I price a pattern?

Baby Blanket Tips

I’m due with a baby boy in November and cannot wait to try to make him a blanket. I’m new to crochet and have learned the basics but would love an easy to follow pattern (bonus points if it comes with a YouTube video). This is the yarn I purchased! TIA ☺️

I’m looking for a yarn subscription box that will send me at least 2 skeins, I’m not too concerned with fiber type but I just want some cute yarn to keep me inspired…( I work with the typical weight 4 worsted yarn)

what order do I crochet the edge lace?

Hello. I'm trying to figure out how to crochet this eyelet and lace edged triangle. I believe I'm to start from the bottom? I circled in purple the stitches I recognize how to do. I recognize the crochet chains and what look to me like half double crochets in the center. How do I crochet the outside and in what order.

is the lace edge put on after or part of the rows?

Can someone help me figure how to plot the lacey part out? I can't figure it out. It doesn't have to be exact, I'm just trying to learn how I would do this. It doesn't look to me like it's crocheted on after, it looks part of the rows. Does it look crocheted after to you?

this is my rough mock up of what I see minus turning chains etc

ch 17
2dc in ST1 ch7 1hdc ch7 2dc in LS turn

,,, 2dc in ST1 ch4 3hdc ch4 2hdc in ls turn

then the outside lace is crocheted on after. (or is the lace part of the rows?) thanks so much
