    I hold my yarn the way I do because the way they taught in the book was very uncomfortable and cramped my index finger. I tell people to hold the yarn how they are most comfortable.

    doesnt holding the yarn with your middle finger cramp up your hand? I was always taught to hold the work with that finger and thumb, and hold the yarn with my index….is your way easier on the hands?

    Like usual, you have clear, concise directions and videos.

    I would like to make a pointed shawl with this pattern.

    Is there a video that shows how to decrease or increase this stitch?

    I could possible figure it out, but I would be lost.

    Thank you for the directions for this stitch and all the others.

    The multiple is 8, which means that it takes 8 chains to for each shell of the pattern stitch. I figure each pattern I make by the multiple. You would do the same if you use this for articles of clothing.

    how many chains …
    how many chains would i need to make an average adult sized blanket, or some article of clothing, like a poncho or a hat? And how many chains would it take ranging from the age of 2-13? Sorry for all the questions but you have explained everything more clearly and they way you create your art is so interesting, i just have to know how you do it!! Thank you so much for your time, and your videos!

    Lots of practice. …
    Lots of practice. Stitches being loose or tight are related to tension. This is how you carry the yarn through your opposite hand. You can also adjust stitches by using a smaller hook. It is possible that you may have to large of a hook for the yarn you are using. For instance if you are using a size J hook, with 3-ply yarn, the stitches will look loose and crummy.

    I’m sorry, I did mean to go fast. I have slowed done considerably, by request from many people, since making this video. Most of my video’s now include segments of slow motion. When I remake this video I will do slow motion. I did not think about the speed that I was crocheting, until people told me. The feedback through comments is very much appreciated. Thank you. 🙂

    You are welcome. There is such a big interest in this stitch, that I am going to make another version. I am no longer limited to 10 minute video’s, which is very helpful to me.

    The smaller head, tiny crochet hooks are for crocheting with thread. The larger aluminum crochet hooks are used with yarn.

    The larger the hook the larger the stitch. There does come a point that it is necessary to change hook sizes with the various size yarn.
