Looking forward to beginning that...it can be crochet or not...your option...please think about it... blessings for your day.

I am going to post this here, because I have not been able to find where I can post with out it being added to some thing. I am a 63 year young man, who has been doing needle work since I was in the 3rd grade. I love what I see, and have printed out some of what I will make, but I like to crochet with thread. Number 10 thread. I think that it looks so much more feminine when making things for my friends. I have trouble with trying to figure out how to change things over from yarn to thread.

Is there someone out there that can drop me a note and help me figure out how to make the changes needed to do this? If so, please drop me a note at rwg030550@gmail.com. Put Crochet in the subject line so that I know what it is pertaining to. THANK YOU, in advance!! Robert

Hi I love this pattern for the tissue box it has such pretty colors and I have been trying to complete the pattern for the last two days for some reason it looks like on round 6 one side has more stitches than the other am I doing something wrong, could you please guide me so that I could complete a few of them to give it to friends and relatives. Thank you.

In Round 6: ch 1, sc in the same stitch, 3 sc in each of the next 3 stitches, 3 sc in the next stitch, 1 sc in each of the next 24 stitches, 3 sc in the next stitch, 1 sc in each of the next 7 stitches, 3 sc in the next stitch, 1 sc in each of the next 24 stitches, 3 sc in the next stitch, 3 sc in each of the next 3 stitches, join with slip stitch to the first sc. (74 sc in total)coners
I think after 24 sc in each of the stitches instead 3 sc in each of the next 3 stitches it should be 1 sc in the next 3 stitches I made the changes to the pattern which I did and the count started to come right. I would appreciate a reply, I maybe wrong too but it gives me the number of sc you have posted. Thanks.
