    Hi mikey,
    I was wondering if you could help me out with the joining of a new color. I’m getting confused with how you are joining in the video.
    Thank you,
    Brianna

    P.s. Love this pattern

    Love this stitch, should have watched the tutorial on measuring wave patterns first. my 4′ chain (153+1) ended up only about 3′. just on the first row of fans so not too painful to start over. Also gonna use a larger hook, I crochet too tight and it would make a better circle right now. Thanks for your wonderful site.

    I like it. But way to much on the hook that I can’t even work on till fall. But I will keep it in mind when I do finish something.
    So much I want to do and not enough winter months. I need to move. lol

    When looking for crochet patterns; I am always looking to see if there is a graph or diagram. A lot easier to understand. Any idea on other resources for that? I am on youtube and your website all the time. Thanks so much for all your help

    Love the stitch, love your instructions – I googled many different projects, I like yours and youtube’s bobwilson123 the very best – also LOVE that you do left handed instructions, though I am so used to flipping everything opposite of righthanded instructions, I get going and forget NOT to! Look forward to the surprises you have for us all in 2015!

    Did anyone else notice that the first triple treble on the last section you did 5 wraps instead of 4 in the video?

      That is possible…. I do get talking and showing you how and sometimes my hands don’t match my mouth as I am probably giving a tip… Should be 4 wraps Tracey and you will be good to go.

    This is a beautiful stitch. I too am a big fan of diagrams, but I’m also a visual learner. Thanks for the options! My twin sister knits, and she has a lot of resources. I find that crochet (my preferred drug) is undergoing a huge transition – people are really starting to understand it can be way more than blankets and baby clothes (even though those are quite lovely too!) and I’m very excited to learn all that I can. I want to see how far I can go with this medium because I love it so much. Your fellow crocheters appreciate all your efforts!

    Thank you for your awesome tutorials and for your constant search for all the things that keep us intrigued and busy.. it really is the ‘take everywhere’ craft! Cheers! Debs

    Thank you thank you for your great work. I like to crochet and prefer diagrams over words too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like all three. The tutorial, written directions and a diagram. That way you can always figure out a pattern.

    ttr or dtr….you say triple treble in the instructions then double treble in video..which one is correct?

      • January 6, 2015 at 11:29 pm

        I’m confused! Is the stitch in the right handed video tutorial a triple treble or double? I’ve never done anything but granny squares and basic ripple…..I just want to understand the correct term for future projects. I’m on 2nd “row” or first repeat. So far so good!

    I have a question about the starting chain. If I were to use the foundation single crochet would I still use the 9+1 or skip the plus one because I already have the sc for the 2nd row. Thanks!
