Frequently Asked Questions
I don’t crochet but I want a finished product, can I buy one?
Yes, I would be happy to make you one! Please contact me on my Etsy shop so we can work something out. The only thing I will not do is make an item from a pattern that is not my own. Please contact the original pattern owner; they work hard to make their patterns and I don’t have the right to take money from them.
Can I sell products made from your patterns?
Please don’t. I work hard to make these patterns and I do have an Etsy shop where I sell them myself.
What brand of yarn do you use?
I use a mix, but the majority of my yarn is “I Love This Yarn” brand. I also use Red Heart Super Saver and occasionally Vanna’s Choice.
Why don’t you chain 1 before turning?
This is a personal preference; I think that the edges look a bit cleaner if you don’t chain 1. Of course, if you prefer to chain 1 then it is perfectly okay to do so when applicable.
How do you get pieces worked flat to look like they were worked in the round?
This is a technique that I use all the time, so much so that I forget that others may not know how to do it. I have heard it called “mirror crochet”, but if you are familiar with knitting it’s basically the equivalent of a purl as it is the reverse of a stitch. Just google “mirror crochet” and there should be some great tutorials on how to do this.
Not a question but,
There is a mistake in this pattern!
Please tell me! I am just one person and while I try my best to be as accurate as possible, sometimes things slip through the cracks. I don’t go back and look at my older patterns that frequently so if you don’t alert me to these errors I probably won’t notice, so please contact me either on Etsy/ Ravelry or at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will fix the errors and update the patterns on all websites as soon as possible. And I do apologize if there are any mistakes, I know how frustrating it is to be unable to complete a pattern.
Anytime I fix errors/ update a pattern I make a note of it on this page. If you downloaded one of my patterns and noticed a mistake, check there first to see if I have already fixed it. If not, please let me know!
