Does anybody grok this (crochet tutorial) ?
« on: May 12, 2015, 04:33:05 pm »
So, I really want to make this, but I am a total noob at crochet, and I don't know what these abbreviations mean: Google is about as worthy as asking a can of vegetable soup what letters mean.

This is a very cute hat, and I kind of need it for my Twi'lek obsession =P

If I see the abreviations, I can tell you what they mean most times. I crochet sometimes.

DC is double crochet.

sc is single crochet.

For anyone wanting to help, here is the pattern

I learned how to crochet when I was about 6 years old. If you have any questions you can send me a pm or reply here.  Ravelry is another great source, I am on several forums/groups there that cater to my interests (mostly Alice Starmore worship), but there's a lot of groups and articles there for beginners. https://www.ravelry.com/account/login

Thank you for that link. I ended up buying an H needle and yarn from the dollar store. The needle is good quality, but the yarn was too thin :( so it was really difficult trying to figure out the "double crochet" when the yarn makes such teeny tiny loops. Going this weekend to get legit Red Heart yarn. ^__^

Btw, I've finally got it down and am about 80% done with this hat. I'll naturally post my dorky twi'leki face on here when I'm completely down with it :P Thanks to all of you for the help!

I know this is an old thread.  But I am new here.  In fact, this is my first post. 

I am to late to help on this, but I crochet, a lot.   Feel free to msg me if you ever find yourself stuck on crochet again.
