    Mikey, I had to chuckle as you struggled with weaving in the ends of the Makers yarn. Whatever the elastic inside the cotton coating of the yarn strand is, it makes it almost impossible to ‘weave in’ because that inner material is not yarn-like. I’ve made a couple projects with the yarn, because it really is wonderful to work with while you crochet. But when I get to the end I really try to weave ‘around’ stitches, rater than ‘through’ the yarn.

    Hi! I am trying desperately to make a round tablecloth, nothing fancy mind you. I tried using your tutorial on crocheting in the round by increasing. The larger it got the more waves it became ( I was on about row 12 when the wave started). My second attempt was a round granny square that got super wavy around row seven. I’m getting pretty frustrated. Help!! I love your tutorials, you are so easy to follow.

      Usually, when it gets wavy, that means you’re increasing too much.

      I used this: https://www.craftsy.com/blog/2015/10/crochet-a-flat-circle/

      tutorial to kind of get me on the right track. I found the Crochet Crowd a few months after so I never looked at their crocheting in the round tutorial. But following that link got me flat circles.

    Mikey,
    i need your help on this pattern. I would love to make this for my Labra-dane, yes, she’s half lab, half great dane, and she loves her cuddly clothes since she’s rather short haired. But her chest is more like 36″ and have tried with one of these pattern before, but they were still too small. Any idea how to make this one big enough for my little one?
    thanks
    Paula

      Paula, I think it will be easier for you to tackle this if you get the measurements of the dog first. I am making one for a dog that is in between the small and medium sizes right now. When I work with Mikey’s tutorial I measure each piece and compare it to the measurements I have of the dog. This way I know when to increase or decrease the stitches to make it fit better. Here’s a link to a diagram of what measurements you should have:
