-------- You're Talking About --------

Crocheters are discussing the book "Crocheting in Plain English" by Maggie Righetti. If you have it, is there something you would like to say about the book? Some that don't own it are finding this book at their local libraries, so they can take a look:

Crocheters are talking about helpful little tricks they use, in keeping track of the number of chains, when doing a long starting chain:

Forum member KYT777 talks about the differences between crochet thread sizes that she finds available in Sweden and American thread sizes. She'd like to know what thread sizes American crocheters like to work with the most. You'll find great posts here on thread brands and sizes that crocheters enjoy best.

------------- Search Box -------------

Remember the search box (that's at the top of most pages on my site) when you're looking for any type of crochet information or searching for a certain type of crochet pattern or how-to. It can be very handy in finding what you're looking for.
