Anyone have any flower tutorials?

Explanation: I have a harness trained cat that my friends and I take to our local ren fair every year. We all dress up, cat included. This year we are all going as mushroom people. So the 'story' is that my cat is our mushroom queen and we are her mushroom guards escorting her around the fair in her chariot (aka her stroller 🤣.) All this to say I'm crocheting a flower crown for my cat. She likes to stick her head through a front window in her stroller and normal fake flowers wouldn't allow her to do that because they are too big. So I'm crocheting mushrooms and flowers out of embroidery thread for her crown. But I'm struggling on deciding what kind of flowers to put on it.

I do not want to put roses. But I do want to put at least one carnation. So if anyone has tutorials for carnations please send them my way. Other than that I'm not picky about the flowers. If it helps the 3 mushrooms that are gonna be in the crown are also the mushrooms my friends and I based our costumes on: toadstool, bleeding fairy helmet, and ink cap mushrooms.

I personally do better with video tutorials over printed patterns. Thank you all in advance ☺️.

How do I give proper credit when selling and designing???????????? HELPP

I want to sell a pattern of a doll, but can I take and adjust patterns of several free Youtube videos, and culminate them together to produce the full unique design of the doll? It will not be a full blown copy of what others put out there. For example, adjusting a pattern for hair inspired by one source, and putting it together with an adjusted pattern for a cardigan (from another source).

I will give full inspiration credit! It's just difficult as some designers are not responsive to gaining permissions!

How to fix 2 panels for a mesh top?

I’m making my first top and it’s a mesh top with different stitches for each row.

I realized after starting my second panel that it’s somehow longer(width wise) than the first panel…even tho I watched and followed a video but that’s beyond me lol.. so how do i eventually line it up good enough when done? I don’t wanna start over my second panel 😅 thanks!

Help with instructions

Can someone explain what “sk 2 fpdc in next 2, fpdc in previously skipped 2” means? It’s a cable stitch pattern, if that helps.

Row 7: Ch 1, turn, sc 13, fpdc, sc 3, sk 2 fpdc in next 2, fpdc in previously skipped 2, sc 3, fpdc, sc 13; 38 stitches

Best hook for big project?

I am embarking on a (maybe) queen size blanket as a gift. I found a lovely pattern on a website which is definitely doable within my time limit. Have done 2 swatches with 2 different sized hooks (8 and 7mm) they’re Yarniss hooks ordered on Amazon. I’m finding they ‘drag’ quite alot and on such a big project, I worry it’s going to drive me nuts. Any recommendations for hooks that will speed up my progress? Thanks🌸

My first attempt at clothing…

So I have made the collar just fine which ends with 80 rows, sl st it together and then it begins with this step next.

Can someone explain how I end up with 120 sts after I only have 80 rows? What does (3 sts/2rows) mean? I’m assuming it’s telling me to do two rows of sc but I’m not confident.

Is there something else I’m missing?

What size hook to use when using a different yarn weight than the pattern calls for?

So the yarn pattern calls for a specific yarn which is plush weight 6, but I want to use some plush weight 5 yarn I have. I know it'll be a bit smaller but I don't mind. But do I keep the same hook size? The pattern says 5mm should I change the hook size I'm using for the weight 5 or keep it the same?

Help! What do I do with the back of this blanket?

sorry for the weird lighting first off lol. I’m almost done with this baby blanket and it needs to be completely done by Friday morning. I was going to line the back with fabric but i can’t figure out how to do it and I don’t want to mess it up in the process. Since I was planning on covering the back, I did not care about what the backside of the little embroidery/appliqué part looked like. But now that I can’t line it, what should I do here? I was thinking of crocheting just a rectangle to sew on and add the baby’s name or initials, but how do I sew it on without it showing onto the front? Any suggestions would be very appreciated, thank you!

Hi Folx,

Can anyone help me with a pattern for this? If there is a free one out there that would be great but also willing to pay (preferred less than $10). Thanks

How do I keep track of my stitches when working a project that starts with a long chain?

I’m currently working on a beanie pattern that I found online, and I’m struggling to keep count of the stitches correctly.

The project starts by chaining 70, then there are sc increases every row up to 81 stitches in one row, and then sc decreases every row back down to 70 stitches in a row. There’s more to the pattern, but this area is what I’m struggling with.

I’ll put the methods that I’ve used to try to keep track of my stitch count as a reply to the automoderator comment. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!!
