    Do you know where i can get a pattern for an airfreshner skunk would appreciate one
    thanks


  8. I didn’t find an air freshner, but I did find this: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/missy-skunk
    I think with a few minor adjustments and no stuffing on the body, it could work as an air freshner cover. It’s really cute!

  11. Re. A Flower A Day-Chrysanthemum pattern (I love this flower)
    I’m sorry to be a bother, but I need more explanations on rounds 4,5,and 6. 1,2,and 3 went great, then came 4. It took quite a while, but I ‘think’ I figured it out, not positive though. And then came 5, oh my. I was and am really frustrated. I have not been able to figure it out! If I got 4 wrong, then that could be part of my problem with 5. In both 4 & 5 the problem was “in the next sc”, “in ch 1 sp” and “in next ch 1 sp !!! If I ever get through round 5 correctly, I’m sure 6 won’t be a problem. Thank you for any help someone can give me!


  12. Judy:
    No bother at all……I sent you an email to the Yahoo address.

    Judy,
    I am also having problems with this pattern when I get to round 4. Would appreciate more help with this because I love the pattern.
    Thank you.


  14. Rnd. 4: working behind first row of petals, ch 1, sc, ch 1 in same st; *sc, ch 1 in next sc*; repeat from asterisk 10 times; join with sl st to beginning sc.
    ****with this row, you will be working in the sc(s) on rnd. 3, skipping behind the petals…….work a sc, ch 1 in each sc around, keeeping the petals pushed to the front…….this will give the base for the 2nd row of petals******

    Rnd. 5: ch 1, sc, ch 10, sc in same st, sl st in ch 1 sp; *sc, ch 10, sc in next sc, sl st in next ch 1 sp*; repeat from asterisk 10 times; join with sl st to beginning sc. 12-ch 10 loops
    *****this row is the beginning of the 2nd row of petals, work a sc, ch 10, sc in the sc(s) on row 4, work a sl st in the ch 1 sp(s) on row 4.******
    This is almost the same as you worked in rows 2 and 3…….
    Hope this helps. Feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions.

  15. can someone tell me how exactly to do round 2… the astrix is confusing me… do i end up with 2 sc in each sc of round 1?


  16. Rnd. 2: ch 1, sc, ch 10, sc in same st; *sc, ch 10, sc in next sc*; repeat from asterisk 10 times; join with sl st to beginning sc. 12-ch 10 loops

    After you work rnd. 1, then rnd. 2 should have 2 sc and a ch 10 loop. It works out to (sc, ch10, sc) in each st around. Hope this helps.


  17. Yes thank you very much!


  18. Wow! Such a beautiful flower! I’ve become a crochet-aholic recently and I’ll give it a try right now ;) Thabks for sharing such wonderful things!!!


  19. Thank you so much! Crochet is addictive!
