What is a double loop start?

ANNA said...

A double loop start is sometimes also called a magic ring or adjustable ring. Here is a tutorial: http://www.crochetme.com/forums/t/28917.aspx

Thank you for sharing, cant wait to try it and check back in your blog again.

I can't believe the talent that you have. I've looked at the pictures of stuff you've made. I am totally amazed at your creativaty. I can crochet as long as I have a pattern and sometimes I can make up my own pattern but what you've done is awsome. I hope that you keep up the good work and when I get the money I'll be back to buy a pattern from you and that's saying something because I don't buy patterns online.

this is sooooo cute i want to make so bad. but i can't make the triple crochets right!. the loops always turn out big. do u have some tips? thank you

Marcy said...

I made one of your iced Heart Shaped Cookies so that Ravelry would have a picture to go with your pattern. I really like your picture so much better, though. If you're on Ravelry, would you feature your photo on the pattern page? Patterns with pictures get a lot more attention than those without photos.

ANNA said...

Hi, Marcy! Unfortunately, I am not on Ravelry. I have it on my "to do" list forever! You have my permission to post my picture on Ravelry if you want to. Thank you for reminding me to get on Ravelry :)

ANNA said...

Hi, vtnangel! Hmmm, I don't know taht I have any good tips to offer on the triple crochets. It does take some pratice. I think the trick is to keep the yarn wrapped tightly around the hook and then swivel the hook the right way so that you can get it through the loops without loosening them, if that makes any sense :)

I'm so GLAD that you have this pattern! I tried to get it from the original site but the blog has been removed. THANK YOU!!!

Anna said...

Ha ha -- the blog that was removed was mine. I changed the name from crafty-anna.blogspot.com to crochetnplay.blogspot.com and all links were broken as a result. I'm sorry for the inconvenience but glad you were able to find the pattern :)
